WORLDHOTEL Cristoforo Colombo

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2013

I stayed two nights here and found it to be a lovely little hotel. As with most rooms in Europe, mine was quite small but certainly had everything and as much space as one small person needs! The room was very clean and comfortable, the free wi-fi in the room was fast and reliable and all amenities were provided. The hotel was lovely and the breakfast was plentiful. The staff were quite helpful on the whole, though as with most short trips overseas for me, I felt a little awkward at not being able to speak the language and sometimes felt it was frustrating for a couple of the staff members. Definitely didn't impact on my experience though! It is walking distance to the Duomo and the train station, as well as the Metro to take you further around Milan. Corso Buenos Aires itself was quite grubby but this hotel was definitely a little sanctuary in the madness.

We been to BW Hotel in April 2013, we arrived Milan coming from Venice by train, I knew that the there is a Metro station (Porta Venezia) just 1 step form the Hotel. However, when we arrived the rail station we discovered that this station is on line one, where metro operating from the rail station are line 2 and 3, and thus you will need to do one change to line one. We were tired and accordingly we toke a Tax to the Hotel, it cost us 10 Euro (night fair)

When we arrived, actually the hotel exceeded my expectation, the hotel has a luxury entrance, and the room is nice and clean. With the accommodation we were offered 2 free hours in the hotel’s SPA which seemed to be very luxury but unfortunately we didn’t have the time to tray it. Hotel staff are very professional, breakfast was perfect, nice restaurant, with variety of food

The hotel location is good, as it is in the main shopping street of Milan in Corso Buenos Aires. But on the other hand is around 20 min walking to the Domo area! If you are on a hurry you can take the Metro, as I remember it is only 3 stops. If I was a shopping Fan, I would have said perfect location!! But I’m more into attractions, and nightlife and thus I would prefer to stay in a hotel beside the Domo.

We stayed for 3 nights in the French Style Room, it was beautiful! We had our own (sizeable) balcony with a sun lounger and chairs, as well as all the usual amenities. The room was well furnished, clean and decorated well. The air conditioning worked (ish) the air it blew out was not very cold, it was just about bareable at night!
The restaurant was not open for evening meals, but breakfast was included. The buffet had a good selection of pastries, there was also cereal, toast, eggs, fruit, fruit juice and hot drinks.
The staff were friendly and patient with my very broken (and Yorkshire) Italian. The reception area/entrance to the spa is lovely - one evening we sat and had (reasonably priced) drinks there.
It is very close to the metro stop and is on a large high street. There are many shops (international brands,e.g. Zara, H&M, Pandora), and places to eat, pizzerias etc.

Would recommend it to anyone. As we were only there for 3 days, we didn't check out the spa facilities - they were complimentary (at that time at least).

Traditional elegant Italian style city hotel. Single rooms are small but quiet and clean. Italian style with a lot of dark wood. Location is very good - 15min walk from il Duomo.
Breakfast is rather average. Not good choice of fresh fruit, no really fresh fruit juice.
Friendly staff

I stayed at the Best Western Hotel Cristoforo Colombo for 2 nights.
The hotel is well managed. The rooms are small and simple but have all expected amenities. The beds were ok, but don't expect a heavenly bed. The internet worked fine.

I had dinner at the hotel restaurant, and it was excellent.
The hotel had a spa, but I had not time to visit it.

The staff was very friendly - and I felt it was a good value if you ned a place to stay in a great location in Milan.

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Years Eve. The location is excellent and near some good restaurants and about a 15 minute walk in to the centre. We were very lucky to be upgraded to a junior suite and the room was beautiful, roomy, tastefully decorated and modern. The bathroom was very big. The only negative thing I could say was that there was a lot of noise on the floor above us late one night where someone was having a party the night before nye. We called reception and within 5 minutes it was quiet. The staff were friendly and helpfull and had great English.The breakfast room was lovely although it was a bit small and again the waiting staff were kind. The breakfast was really good and a great selection. The spa under the hotel was a fantastic addition to the hotel especially the pool. I would 100% reccomend this hotel to other people.
