I spent a couple of nights in this hotel, it was a pleasant experience.
The hotel is located near the centre of Milan. For those unfamiliar with the city, it is near via Paolo Sarpi. I read in a number of reviews this are labelled as "China Town", however readers should know that this is a relatively good and safe area in Milan. There is a populous Chinese community settled there, but this shouldn't deter anyone from choosing to stay here as this area is very convenient for most leisure and business requirements (near Garibaldi and Central Station, near the Fiera, and close to the hart of the city.
True you find graffiti here and there and some corners aren't great but, alas, this is Milan!
As per the hotel itself, it's all clean and well furnished, with a reasonably priced underground parking that has direct access to the hotel - in other words you don't have to go outside the premises to get your car. The room we had was spacious and clean - however this is where the hotel loses one extra rating point: the air conditioning was noisy. Not a problem in December but it definitely needs a fix.
The breakfast is one of the strong points: the breakfast area is clean, pleasant, with good and fresh products to accommodate all tastes. To give an example, the choice ranges from the usual English breakfast to persimmons, baked apples (with oranges and cinnamon, yummy), to yogurt and freshly squeezed juices.
There would be more to write but in short this is a hotel that I would recommend and that I will definitely use again in the future.
