I have stayed at this hotel several times before and have always been very satisfied, however this stay was disappointing because the hot water temperature in the bathroom was tepid. I complained after the first night and was moved to another room, but the water was no hotter, so I assume it is a policy of the management not to keep the water hot (cost cutting??). I had this problem once in a hotel in Mexico and came back with a serious ear infection which was due to bacteria in the water because it was not heated enough to kill off the germs. I was therefore very nervous of having a similar problem after my stay at this hotel and indeed have suffered from red and itchy eyes during my stay and for a couple of days after. If the management could just heat the water to a higher temperature, the problem would disappear, and I hope they do solve it because the hotel is a nice one. The rooms at the back of the hotel are quiet and the breakfast is excellent, as is the location just a few metres from the metro station. The water problem really put me off though and I think next time in Milan I will stay at the Best Western Galles just up the road as I think it now has the edge over this hotel.
