Reviewed 22 June 2014

Though I stay was just for two nights, It was a wonderful place to stay.

The location was close to the center of Milan, the place was clean, breakfast was great - but what really made a difference is the people. All the staff were courteous, friendly and prompt.

I would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly to anyone.

Keep it up.

Nice, clean room with comfortable beds, bathroom with excellent shower and good hairdryer. Free Wifi and friendly, helpful staff. The minibar offers still/sparkling water, coke, san pellegrino aranciata amara, peach and pineapple juice at no extra cost. Breakfast buffet was very varied, especially fot Italian standards. It included toast, varilous kinds of other bread, cake, yoghurt, fresh fruit, cheese, scrambled egg, cereal. The cappuccino was excellent. The only drawback was that the room was far from quiet, with some noisy vehicles passing by even in the middle of the night. However, keep in mind that this is a very central locationn, just a five-minute walk from the Duomo and the Metro station, and that the hotel also has quieter rooms. All in all, this hotel by far exceeds the Italian three-star hotel standard.

The bed was comfortable and I had a really good night sleep. The staff was friendly and eager to help. All the drinks in the rooms minibar were free of charge. A very good hotel situated close to the Duomo di Milano, Scala theatre and Sforzesco castle.

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the hotel clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for going to the Duomo, La Scala area, the church where you can view the Last Supper. The breakfast was adequate, nothing to rave about. ( Coffee or cappuccino was always luke warm.) For the price, it's a great deal.

A very nice small hotel near the Duomo. We spent one night in Milan and saw The Last Supper the next morning ( took the Metro) before checking out and heading to Venice. The room was small but tastefully appointed, very quiet and clean with complementary non alcoholic beverages in the mini bar.

This is a lovely small hotel very close to the major sights of Milan - the Duomo is well within walking distance - about 10 minutes. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. We had a car, which was a really bad idea as driving in Milan was insane. They do not have a parking lot, but they let us park right outside the door to the hotel which was great. The room was small but we had a lovely private terrace surrounded by hedges - no views but lots of privacy and a table and chairs out there. The bathroom was small and two people cannot be in there at once, but it was modern and the shower was fine. The bed was really hard, as was every bed we had in Italy. There is a bar with nuts and olives for drinks, but no restaurant. We were too tired to go out to eat and the staff ordered us a pizza, which was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the private terrace

A nice hotel that seems to cater to english speaking travellers. Mostly Brits but noticed some Australians and we are Canadian. Staff were fluent English speakers and could answer any questions about the area. Great location and close to the Duomo, several key public galleries Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and Palazzo Reale. Saw a great Klimt show at the Palazzo. Concierge recommended us to some decent local eateries. Tons of great shopping and sightseeing nearby.
Accomodations were adequate with very nice bathroom. Room was tiny but completely fine for our purposes. Comfortable bed. Breakfast was serviceable but uninspired. Minibar was free and had some nice non alcoholic beverages. Cleaning staff was very diligent. Selling point of this establishment is location and staff who are great for English speakers. Should also mention there is a nice downstairs bar where you can get a glass of wine and relax after a long day of sightseeing or gallery going. Tip the bartender as he is a very pleasant fellow.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on upper floor away from the street if possible.
