The four stars' (*) Regina Hotel in Milan is an attempt to make us believe that you can actually stay at a four star accomodation in the very center of Milan paying "little".
Its gloomy interiors, deteriorated walls and floors and dark rooms are just an introduction of what you will find there. I posted some pictures to show you the very truth surrounding this accomodation.
Rooms are very outdated. It is normal to find cracks on the walls and floor. There is a nasty smell (in the case of our room, it smelled like sweat) in some areas. So did the elevator and at times the corridors. Furniture is like an IKEA from the 70's (age included). Our room had tiny windows which barely let the sun enter. However, the window to the main street had double glass which was a plus. Noises from the street in this case were barely noticeable. The rooms can be very noisy if you intend to sleep with any opened window, since a tram goes through the street very often.
Although not to the point of filthy, the rooms were not very clean. Somehow dusty and as I mentioned smelly. Sheets were clean though, but the bed was way too hard and bumpy.
As one costumer mentioned in other review, smiling is optional for the service. They are functional, but nothing else. An exception is the woman who is in charge of the breakfast, who is very nice. The breakfast itself is average (below average for a four star).
This hotel is clearly a tourist trap, don't let its location and price fool you. For that price you can stay in much better places as a matter of fact.
