“Never again!”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

This Hotel is in a good location to the University and this is the only good thing....
The stuff is very unfriendly and rude, In the rooms you find noisy and mosture conditions. Don't waste your money, you get better service for the same price.

Reviewed 6 October 2011

This small local three-stars hotel is a reasonable choice for travel to Milan.

The place has been nicely renovated since I was last in it a few years ago.
The rooms are still small, but are well organized.

The first night I stayed on the 2nd floor, which was much more reasonable then
what some of the reviews claim. It was not-noisy at all and I had no problem falling asleep.
In the following nights I preferred to move to a 5th floor room, which was even better.
The price is definitely the main feature the hotel has to its credit in this expensive city.

Small CONs:
The price of Internet access is outrageous (4 Euro per hour and 10 Euro for 6 hours)
There are a few stairs from the street to the reception, and then a few from the reception to the elevator (maybe I am the only one that uses luggage)

The reception staff were very cold and distant
Only soap provided, no shampoo etc
Coffee machine, no coffee provided, it didn't work also
Shower basin would fill up with water and take hour to drain
You have to pay for Internet and breakfast
Would only use this hotel if you are getting a very cheap rate, otherwise forget

Reviewed 6 March 2010

I chose this hotel because it it's proximity to Linate airport andf the metro station. it delivered. Yes the rooms are tiny, but the desk was pretty big ( I needed to work in my room lots), there is boradband wifi with good high speed (11 euros for 6 hours), flat screen tv , big shower cubicle and everything was clean and new. I didn't have the breakfast, because there are two large supermarkets on the way to the Metro, if you are on a budget, you could do what I did and buy sushi or rotisserie chcken and potatoes from the supermarket to eat in your room. The minibar is plenty big enough for some of your own food. Despite the show being on, the price was reasonable and staff pleasant and helpful. I would definately stay here again!

Reviewed 30 September 2009

I was initially shocked by just how tiny the single room was but, on reflection, saw that it was actually quite well planned with a newly fitted shower room, a desk with a decent chair and even a fitted wardrobe where things could be hung and tidied up. Everything was new and clean. Breakfast was offered but missable - mainly a selection of stale cakes and a thimble of second rate expresso.

By metro it’s 4 stops and 3 blocks to the Duomo, the tram is a 2 minute hop along the street. Linate a 15 minute 15 euro taxi ride away.

Price (€60) was excellent and I’d have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone looking for a good value place to stay in Milan.
