The best thing about this decent value for money hotel is its location. It's twenty minutes' walk from Cadorna rail station (direct trains to Malpensa airport): barely ten minutes from Sant Ambrogio metro (direct line to the Central Station and airport buses); and about fifteen minutes to the Duomo and main shopping streets.
The are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, including a great "organic" pizzeria - sadly it's mainly a takeaway so you will be lucky to get one of the few tables. The public areas are spacious and comfortable, and the breakfast buffet (downstairs in the basement) varied and good. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but mine (room 401) could have done with refurbishing - the hair dryer had the yellowing plastic look of something that has been there for a long, long time. The lift is a tad arthritic, too. The staff are helpful, and if you are on a modest budget you could do far worse in this expensive city. I will certainly stay again.
Couple of tips. Don't miss a walk along the Duomo roof, especially if it's sunny, and then head to Rinascente department store immediately alongside for the best of Italian shopping and food - it makes Harrods look like Sainsbury's. Try the rooftop bar, if you have deeper pockets than I do. Other tip is to watch out for little helpers at the ticket vending machines in Central Station metro. They lurk sleazily waiting to offer "advice" to anyone who hesitates, and then expect a tip for doing so. If you give in it can double the cost of your (very cheap) ticket, and actually prolongs the vending process. And you really don't need help, as the machines are easy to use and feature multilingual touch screens. Brush them off if you feel assertive, or thank them politely and move on swiftly without tipping them.
