“Good position, large bathroom”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Hotel was in a great position, close to every thing, trains, sites, shopping and restaurants. It's an old hotel and rooms have wooden floors, no carpet and are a little small although the bathroom was very large. We were very lucky and had a room with 2 balcony's 1 in bedroom &1 in bathroom with views over Main Street down to the square. Could have done with a large shelf in bathroom for toiletries. Although we had a balcony they were full of broken air conditioning units and stored rubbish, could do with a clean up Breakfast was ok but no cooked any thing, rolls, pastries, yoghurt , cereal, cheese, tea &coffee. Breakfast area tiny, had to wait sometimes. Staff friendly enough. Pretty good value

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking front street with a balcony

The service and rooms were not as bad as we thought. The lady in the reception was very helpful. The bathromm was very big. It's so close to the shopping area that I could easily returned to it for a short rest after walking for a while. I will certainly consider this hotel next time I visit Milan.

We stayed in the Hotel for one night and had not such a pleasant time there
the bed was actually two beds not connected to each other.
when i entered the bathroom there were hair on the toilet seat we called the reception and the cleaning lady came and cleaned that up.
if its one night then i guess its ok, but if you stay in milan more than one night then its better to stay at another hotel.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

If the location, the size and cleanness of the room and the shower can compensate the fact that we were greeted by a rude person who didn't give us any information about the hotel, the time the breakfast was served I don't. We had to find out the time the breakfast was served in the elevator and the map of the area (which was actually a map of where the hotels of maybe the chain where) and had to figure out by ourselves how to lock the door and switch off the lights. The room though was big, clean and basic. No decoration of any kind. Just a wardrobe, two side tables, one big mirror, one dining table with two chairs. That's it. Breakfast was so poor. The location though was really nice just 1-2 min walk to Duomo. Opposite to the hotel there is a bar-restaurant and on the same road a tram service and several shops. 1min away there is a metro exit and on the same road there is a red bus-sightseeing bus-- stop. Also Macdonalds.

Room Tip: If you have to pay extra for breakfast don't do it. WiFi is charged 4 Eur for 6 hours.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013 via mobile

We stayed for two nights. The hotel is in a wonderful location, as everyone else has said. The room was a reasonable size, with a large bathroom. Pretty clean, but could have done with a good vacuum, there was a lot of fluff on the floor. The beds were comfortable and breakfast was pretty good. Trams run right past, but the sound proofing from outside is pretty good, so that didn't bother us. The same couldn't be said between rooms. On our first night the Russian people in the next room were still talking/arguing loudly at midnight. I went and spoke to the guy on reception, who was very apologetic, and he rang them. This worked for a short while, but they didn't settle down until 1.00am and they woke us before 7.00am the next morning, so we didn't get a good night's sleep. The staff were pretty good, especially the young guy working at night, who was very friendly and helpful. This was one of the more expensive hotels we've stayed at during our 5 weeks away, and definitely not the best, but I suppose you are paying a high price no matter where you stay in Milan. Overall, would recommend for the convenience of the location.
