Mec Hotel
Ranked #295 of 428 Hotels in Milan
Reviewed 2 August 2013

I stayed only one night at the MEC hotel, booking last-minute. The hotel was clean, well-organized, the front desk staff was helpful and spoke excellent English (in case that's a concern of yours). And the price was great, at something like 45-50 euros, it was perfect for my needs. The single room I stayed in was very small, really only half the size of what might otherwise be considered even a small room. But if all you need is a place to crash, it might suit you very well. Also note that it is just a few subway stops out of the city center. It's very much in town, and although I didn't have time, I suspect that the area around the hotel is interesting. But to reach the main tourist locations you'll need to be comfortable getting around the city a bit.

Stayed here in April 2012. Standard mid-range city centre hotel. Good location next to the tram system, only a few minutes journey away from the Duomo and the centre. Staff very helpful, they allowed us to print our boarding passes at the reception due to a complication with our booking and helped us to book one more night. My only criticism would be the room was swelteringly hot and the air conditioning proved ineffective.

We stayed at Hotel Mec for two nights during the furniture conference, which of course made prices ridiculously high. Service was decent, as well as the rooms. Not a lot happening in the area, but it was generally safe. Watch out for pickpockets and drugdealers in the roundabout by the Lodi station at night.

Room was decent enough, but I'd check out similarly priced hotels in or near Corso Buenos Aires, as they are generally better located.

I spent just one night, but it left me very good impressions. The staff is very friendly - they help ed me to find lots of answers for questions, becouse it was my first time in Milan. The location of Hotel is very good: tram, buses, metro - all are around, also You can go in many places just by foot. I enjoyed that rooms are very good equipped, all is very clean and cosy. I sincerely recommend to choose this place and enjoy the time in Milan. I am sure that then I be second time in Milan I will choose this Mec hotel.

Hotel MEC is an ideal place to stay whilst in Milan. The staff are friendly, efficient, helpful and knowledgeable. The Hotel is very clean, the rooms well equipped and are cleaned daily, to a very high standard. The Hotel is on the outskirts of the City, which means, the nearby restaurants, bars and shops, are that bit cheaper. However, just outside the front door, there is a regular bus and tram service, which will get you to most places you are likely to want to go. The Metro (Underground) is also only a six minute walk away. Good continental breakfast. There are good restaurants, bars and shops in the immediate vicinity. Hotel MEC has a brilliant location, it has good transport network links, it is very clean and it represents outstanding value for money. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be the same.

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.
