“Not great”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

The rooms here smelled like old smoke even though it was ostensibly a nonsmoking hotel. The breakfast was the worst we had in Italy -- no fresh food other than yogurt and bread. The central air conditioning barely worked and was noisy. The pugnacious desk clerk just shrugged when we inquired about it, and very helpfully said, "did you turn the thermostat down?" There was no way to take a shower without creating a flood in the bathroom since there was no shower curtain. We had to pay 8 euros a day for internet and then it didn't work in the room, only in the lobby. The hotel is in a good location if you are interested in the old part of town and it's on a quiet square. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it.

Stayed here for 3 nights & was very happy with our choice. The location was great, quiet spot not too far from all the must do things in Milan. The staff were warm & friendly, also very helpful. Our room was not large, however we were not falling over our luggage or each other. Very 80's in decor, but well maintained & more importantly very clean. Breakfast was continental as advertised, but we had choices & there was a plentiful supply. Coffee made to order is nice! The bed was comfortable & bathroom fine. There is no stand up shower, it is hand held & over bath - but again just another difference to being at home & no real issue. Not sure of this hotel being 4 star, however I would stay again & recommend to family or friends. My only word of warning is not so much for the hotel, but more for all of Milan - the maps are not as it is once you arrive! We spent a lot of time "lost", however this is why we go somewhere different!

Hi did two nights in Hotel Mentana Milan , the location is good as you cross the square and go through via Bughera your in Via Torino . The staff was great very helpful and gentile , but sorry this is not a 4 star hotel , the rooms are like a 2 star hotel , and than the toilets even of a 1 star hotel as smell comes out from all corners of the bath room. The breakfast is continental and is good too.

But overall beds were clean and Staff very gentile and helpful.
But overall this is not a 4 star hotel but a 2 star

I can qualify it like an old place with smoking smelly rooms… There was practically no ventilation in my tiny double room (can’t even imagine how somebody can sleep there during warm summers!) and you don’t have any chances to get some sleep with an open window: it’s not a noisy street, but it’s little enough to hear all noises around. I suppose there are few “new” rooms, but if you are not sure to get it (in my e-mail I asked for new one, but no, not a chance), I definitely advise you to search another place.

Clean, in the centre, fairly good price but that is all. Staff tired, demotivated and dusty like some of the rooms. Hotel to be watched as they plan to refurbish it soon. Would be faire if they mark this hotel as 2 -3 stars.

For the price I paid, this was a perfectly acceptable hotel - clean, conveniently located, and with fine customer service. The breakfast was not great, but I wasn't expecting too much anyway.

We had a weekend getaway in Milan recently - and this hotel was just the perfect base for it...It's in the middle of everything, a short walking distance to the lively Navigli area. A few mins from the hotel there is a lively wine bar which was just a perfect warm-up place for the long night out. Duomo is a 10-15 min walk from the hotel - which is actually a plus...it's nice to have at least some distance to the "tourist circus" over there.

So, the location is perfect. Otherwise, it is just decent...I stayed at a small single room, it was clean and really all I needed. A small minus are the bedsheets, which are really thin and kinda miserable. I think my 65eur nightly rate was a fantastic deal anyways.

A small breakfast is included, but as often in Italian hotels, it is nothing special - coffee, croissants and cereals.

Wifi is 2eur/hour.
