Stayed at Rosa Grand Star Hotel two years ago. Tried this one last month.
It is located right behind the famous Milan food store Peck. We were told it used to be a dormitory for the religious personnel before being converted into a hotel. It is small with only about thirty rooms. The rooms are not big but nicely and simply decorated. Size of bathroom is acceptable even though only shower is provided. The major plus point about the rooms are that they have unusually high ceilings (probably because it was a dormitory) and thus greatly improved their space, even though in terms of floor area it is not very generous. This is especially so when one lies in bed. The sense of compression is much less than those modern day hotels which have unbelievably low ceilings. But the bed was exceptionally hard and may not be to everyone's liking. The room was cleaned and tidied up very neatly everyday. Given the hotel's location, the room was also quiet.
It does not have too many staff but all of them were helpful and polite. We were treated to complimentary coffee and brioche when we waited for our room to be got ready when we arrived early in the morning (we requested for early check-in). Breakfast was good with good selection of cereals, fruits and bread.
A nice and charming small hotel which wins its guests through good location and helpful service, rather than grand design lobby, extravagant decoration and plush amenities.
