Like the other reviewer, we were also fooled by the description on the hotel's website that it is just a short stroll from Bocconi University. (Were there for a conference.) It is at least a 25-minute walk.
This hotel is not close to any other attractions either. On Fridays, there is an outdoor market in front of the hotel - vendors sell fruits and vegetables, but also a lot of junk. The street is left filthy afterward.
The rooms are on the 1st floor, and one has to walk up a steep narrow staircase - not the best if you have heavy luggage. For what they charge, our room was tiny (even by Italian standard), and breakfast was the bare minimum, offered in a little sitting area next to the front desk. There are no other facilities at this hotel. On top of that, there is little hospitality to speak off on the part of the staff.
This place is honestly a youth hostel, not a three-star hotel. There is no way I would stay here again.
