“Good location, cleanliness lacking”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2010

Stayed here for a weekend in October. Location is very good, 2 mins walks from the central train station and therefore convenient for metro/trams into town. Plenty of bars/restaurants/cafes in the immediate vicinity. The room I had was on the second fllor away from the road so was quiet at night. Unfortunately I harldy slept, as I spent most of the night itching from being bitten although whejtehr this was to do with the bed or mosquitos I do not know. The carpet in the room was filthy, the bathroom was not modern, thw shower aprayed water all over.
On check-out they also tried the "mini-bar" trick!
Not impressed.

We loved the location, staff was helpful and the room very comfortable, however, we could hear a woman's phone conversation in the room next door clearly. My husband had to use earplugs!

We heard water flushing during the night and doors slamming. Would ask for a room at the end of the hall.

The hotel is located a short walk from the main train station - ideal for catching the train and/or the bus to Malpensa airport. It's about a 20 minute walk into the centre of the city. The area seems safe enough. The hotel is small, basic and clean. The rooms are slightly old-fashioned and not overly comfortable. The bathroom was kept very clean. Staff were OK at reception, businesslike rather than friendly. OK for a short stay but not the place to kick back in Milan.

We were supposed to stay here for our trip in October 2010. We made two reservations for two different rooms, one of which was non-refundable. In looking over the auto-generated email response, BOTH rooms were booked for the wrong day (I'll admit, it's possible to make ONE mistake, but there's no way I could have made the same mistake twice - the dates in the auto-generated email weren't even close to those we needed).

We made several attempts to try to change the reservation (not cancel - just change the date) and the hotel was unable to help us. They claimed that their "internet booking site" just wasn't able to accommodate us and maybe we should look a little closer at our choice before selecting it. We ended up forfeiting the cost of one of the rooms because there was nothing the hotel would do to help us out.

WARNING -- double check EVERYTHING before making your booking with this hotel and print out a copy of the booking BEFORE submitting the request.

August 2010. I stayed at this hotel for the first time and loved the closeness to the train station and the metro. My room was small but very clean and the water pressure was great. Highly recommend this hotel if you are coming in and leaving by train.

The hotel's best feature is probably its central location in Milan. The rooms were clean but small with a view to the kitchen. The staff were helpful in assisting us with parking advice and using the internet service. It's a good place to sleep (since its quiet), but you probably won't want to lounge around the hotel in the evening.
