If you are disabled, and cannot walk up a flight of stairs, find different accommodation.
If you can walk 5 minutes from Affori Centrale Metro station with your luggage, and you want to have a value for money accommodation with a decent breakfast, then this little hotel in Milan should be in your shortlist. The instructions given by Venere.com for directions are out of date, and it is an easy 20 minute ride on the yellow metro line north of Milan Centrale station. There are lifts at Affori Central so you do not break your back bringing your luggage to and from the metro station. Buy a 24 hour metro ticket which allows you to use the trains freely in and out of the centre of Milan.
We stayed just for a night, and found that the room suited our purpose perfectly. Smallish room, but comfortable double bed. Fridge locked, but for a small fee, it can be unlocked for you to use all the beverages provided within. Good shower after I removed all the scale from the shower head. Everything in the room worked and it was hassle free. Free wifi (no charges as stated in the past reviews), welcome drink, friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast spread was generous, and the ladies were topping up the food table (buffet) even at 10am when breakfast officially ends. So you do not have to get up early in the morning to make sure of a decent breakfast as in some other budget hotels.
The staff were very helpful in printing out our boarding passes for our flight and putting our luggage (at no cost) in their stowage room until we returned in the late afternoon after checking out earlier. What else can one ask for 80 euro a night in Milan?
