My partner and I stayed at this hotel for three nights recently with my nephew. We chose the hotel as it was close enough to San Siro stadium for the football but also within walking distance of the city centre, the cathedral and all the shops.
We were very fortunate in that Corso Magenta is on the no 16 tram line which runs from the centre straight to San Siro - pure luck and not something the hotel advertises.
We had taken note of the previous entries warning of the building works, which are still progressing but rather slowly. I'm sure you wouldn't be allowed to have access through such a building site in this country (UK) but it's clearly not a problem in Italy. As we had rooms on the garden side and were anyway staying over the weekend, we were not troubled by noise but I am sure it would be a much nicer hotel without scaffolding and builders waste outside the front door.
The family who own the hotel were charming and helpful. The man who covers the nights and prepare the breakfasts (standard italian breakfasts with croissant, yoghuts, juice and good coffee plus cakes) was helpful and friendly and extremely nice to my young nephew.
We found Milan to be a very expensive city compared with other parts of Italy - a meal for three of us without being too extravagant was about 100 euros but the quality of food was excellent and you could spend a great deal more if you also went shopping in the fancy outlets.
Our double room was 200 euros a night for two people B&B. The single room was 85 euros a night. That seems rather expensive compared with other hotels we have stayed in but probably comparable with Rome and Venice.
If you stay in Milan, be sure to go up on to the roof of the cathedral. It is one of the glories of Europe, not just for the views but to see the wonderful carved marble which has recently been cleaned. La Scala is also a must and the footie at San Siro was brilliant fun. We also did the stadium tour which was heaven for a 12 year old - you can visit the changing rooms and learn some of the history of the stadium in as many languages as you wish.
