I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and reviewed it for TripAdvisor in 2003. I stayed here again last week (March 6, 2009). I found the hotel a little more worn than before,and while this did not trouble me, I was put out by the price I had to pay. The same room I occupied on several ocasions in 2003 at 75 euros cost me 165 euros. I selected the Albert because some of the other cheaper acceptable hotels where I have stayed (The florida, Cristallo, and Menini, for example) were all booked. Prices wihtin each hotel fluctuate wildly depending on the month and week, and as Milan has many trade shows going on, if you find yourself having to book a room during such a time, you wil find prices 40-200% higher in the same hotel, than you might on an off season and no trade show week. This has always been a problem I have faced when booking Milan hotel rooms. Aside from the price they commanded, the room was clean and acceptable, and the service was friendly. Breakfast was good and consisted of various juices, choice of coffee drinks, a variety of cereals, and some sweet items such as cakes and croissants, plus a few cold cuts and bread.This used to be one of the lower priced hotels in the area, but in the last few years I have by-passed it because their prices have gone up disproportionately in my opinion. I am very familiar with the neighborhood, and while not sleek and ritzy like the Centro Storico/Duomo area, the reports I read from scared travelers seem greatly exaggerated to me. The Albert is a good place to stay if you are looking for a budget place near the station, provided you can get as good or better deal than some of the other hotels I mentioned, which i find comparable to the Albert.
