“Good location, tired decor”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

The location of this hotel is excellent as it is situated just a short walk from the Duomo and centre of town. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The room was a nice size and had a small terrace which over-looked the front of the hotel and was quiet at night. Unfortunately, the décor of the room (and hotel) was tired, dated and a bit scruffy. The duvet had stuffing coming out and the towels had seen better days. This hotel is perfectly adequate for a short trip to Milan but I wouldn't recommend if you were looking for something a bit special.

We found the staff very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were nice with a variety of choices, and the staff served and cleaned up immediately. We had a nice room with a balcony and the bed was very comfortable. We were there 6 nights in June, so did lots of walking which made the location of the hotel great for many important sites.

Standard room, had king size bed (2 of us), free access to non-alcoholic items in the mini-bar, very very convenient location, 2 blocks from the duomo piazza. Excellent breakfasts. Definitely recommended. We stayed two nights in early September 2013.

Wonderful hotel . Before i arrived, staff always answered my emails right away. Rooms were clean, We had 2 small single rooms,the bathrooms were spotless and shining, the small refrigerator in the room was stocked with free water, juice, afternoon snacks at the bar. The staffs were friendly and helpful. the location is great,2 minutes walk to duomo, the breakfast staff was attentive,quick with serving coffee and tea,changing the table cloth right away after guests leave. I will definitely stay here again when I go to Milan.

This hotel is on a very quiet side street, just a five minute walk from the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Another few minutes will take you to La Scala Theatre, the Brera Art Gallery or into the main shipping streets. The hotel itself offers average 3-star accommodation with a small hotel bar but no restaurant (there are of course many nearby!). The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms a reasonable size and very clean. Free Wi-Fi and free (soft drinks only!) from the room minibar are a bonus.
I can recommend this hotel for a city break or business trip although the city-centre location commands a highish price!

Our room was ready when we arrived, even though I reserved the room ahead of time we didn't have to present a credit card until we checked out. The room was small but nicely furnished and extremely clean. The bathroom shower was a bit small as I am 6 foot 7 inches tall it took a lot of effort to soap up. The location was the deal it was so close to everything we just walked everywhere there was noise on the street but once you closed your doors and shutters we didn't hear anything. They are very helpful at the front desk to get you where you need to go. The breakfast was OK the coffee came from a machine as did the orange juice which at other places we stayed it did not but it was plentiful.

Room Tip: For a small balcony we had room 104 which was nice

Just a couple blocks from the Duomo, great location, nice clean rooms, and a very helpful staff. We arrived early our room was ready we were able to check in. We were very happy with the size of the room the bed was comfortable. The staff was very nice and helped us with restaurant recommendations. All major shopping just blocks away.
