“think trice”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

On arriving, my wife and I were astonished to hear from the receptionist that we booked two twin rooms when in fact we only booked one. We were showed an email stating that we booked two. Be careful when you book online because it may appear twice. The receptionist insisted that we had to pay full for both rooms (9 days stay),Normally no show are charged 1 night only. Is it a GET RICH QUICK attitude. After insisting that it was absolutely unfair that we pay for the other room he phoned the owner who then charged us for 3 nights stay. We had to wait about 10 minutes running water until hot water ran down the tap and the temperature was uncontrollable. Rooms are small. The shower cubical is about 2 x 2 ft. The shower head is fixed. We were asked for 5euros for wifi when in most places it is free. Breakfast is prepacked and very limited and the breakfast area is crowded and small for residents. Otherwise the staff were nice to us and did there job perfectly well.

Room Tip: choose a good room - choose another hotel

We chose this hotel because it is very close to the train station in Milan. We were only staying for 1 whole day in town and wanted to arrive, drop off bags and go explore. The Shuttle bus (5 euro) for the airport leaves from the station the next morning. The hotel is fine and clean enough for a one night stay. However, they charge 5 euros a day, per device, for WiFi which is just lame nowadays. The showers are so tiny you can barely close the doors. The beds are springy and really uneven. The breakfast is all prepackaged food. I also think that the area around the hotel is a bit sketchy for a woman traveling alone, but most areas around train stations are. For one night, we could deal with it, but the WiFi charge is ridiculous

I was staying in hotel demo with my friend for 2 nights and I would never go back there. We had to wait at least 30 minutes for hot water in the shower!!! the window blinds were broken, so to get to the balcony was challenging. Breakfast was just unacceptable. + we have never tasted such horrible coffee before. One night it was impossible to get a good sleep as other guests were partying in their room. It is sad that hotel staff is too ignorant to care about their guests. The only good thing is that the hotel is located near the central train station, so it was easy to get there, but despite that we had a horrible experience .

Stayed here with some friends - perfectly decent place to stay with easy access to train station and some nice and decently priced restaurants and bars around it.

They may need to dilute the OJ at brekkie - wee bit strong!!

We chose this hotel because it was very close to the train station and the airport bus shuttle stop. We chose the room on the 3rd floor in the back. So noise was not an issue at all. The room was small, similar to the size of a cabin in most cruise ships. The bathroom size is okay. The room is clean. The front desk is very helpful and knowledgable about the local neighborhood. We had a double bed but one part of the bed was much lower than the other part. The breakfast is very basic but enough to eat: two kinds of cereals, two kinds of juice, ham and salami, cheese, bread rolls, chocolate and jam croissants, packaged cookies. We had problems with shower, the water temperature was difficult to control and the water flower was skimpy.

We stayed at the Hotel Demo last night. The hotel is close to the central station in Milan and there is decent places to eat around that will not break the bank. The room we had was on the 2nd floor. There is no lift in this hotel so if you have heavy luggage it can be a pain getting them upstairs. The room we had was a double room was clean and big enough for our needs. The room was at the front of the hotel which is bothersome as you hear all the traffic all night. Sky Tv is available in the room but most stations are in Italian and only the news stations are in English. The bathroom was tiny when you sit on the toilet your knees are touching the shower. When my wife tried to take a shower in the morning there was only cold and colder water available, no hot water at all. We ended up just washing ourselves with towels to not have to stand in cold water. My advice is if you can try a different hotel if you can. The breakfast was odd as well with stale bread.

Room Tip: Try get a room not facing the street
