Walking distance to Central Station, a halal kebab shop a few shops away. Short walk to the tram stop and metro station.

Room a bit old with big pictures on walls. Ok for 1-2 night stays.

Bathroom lock is rusty and used old fashion type, my son got locked in. Called the night staff, but only brought screw driver with him. Instead of apologizing, he blamed my 12-year-old son for locking the door from inside, asking why as we are family. Then, why is the key the in the first place? Went back down to get the key, finally get my son out.

Having stayed at this hotel recently, it is in a prime location for being centrally based in the city of Milan with the train station and metro close by. The staff were very welcoming, the rooms were clean and tidy and whilst some visitors may find the rooms small, it was perfect in every respect for our city visit. The breakfast was a buffet style continental affair, well presented. A definite yes for a re-visit.

Good location within walking distance to the Central Station, great if you are going to visit other places in Italy.
Metro station is very close to the hotel.
Fully renovated room, air conditioning works very well, clean and comfortable.
There is no elevator and wifi only works in the lobby area and costs 5 euros / day.

We stayed here for 2nights and were quite pleased with our room. Although it was small, the aircon worked well, it was clean & had all of the necessities. Breakfast had a great variety & you could eat as much as you liked. We even took a couple of packets of biscuits each day for a snack later on! There is no lift but the stairs are wide enough to carry your luggage up.
The area near the train station isn't the greatest after dark.

Obviously when you book a budget hotel you don't expect too much but for me the Demo was a little less than even my lowest expectations. The best thing about the hotel is the entrance area/lobby. They have some nice art displayed by a local artist including a huge painting right by reception. After that its all downhill! There was no lift and the service from reception was quite poor. At 3pm I asked for extra pillows and was told that because the housekeeper had finished at 1pm i couldn't have any! In the evening we realised the remote control from our room didn't work but the guy on reception just shrugged his shoulders - I suggested maybe it needed new batteries and he agreed that might be the case. I waited, expecting him to go out and buy some or send someone or at the very least tell me where i could buy some myself but nothing! The wifi internet is painstakingly slow - like old dial up speed and their desktop computers - for a 5 euro charge - are no faster. The room was small and cramped, although it did have a safe and hot shower but wasn't really clean - not filthy but a bit dusty. The plugs in the bathroom were dodgy and the toilet flush was really weak. Location wise it was near the train station but a fair metro ride from the main things to see and do in Milan.
