“Really good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

A very nice hotel Recently renovated, spotlessly clean, large rooms, nice interior design, free wifi in the rooms. Don't let the exterior of the building disappoint you. Only 15 walk to the central station. A very good choice to stay in Milan.
PS. very important to us, we could have capuccino coffee (real capuccino coffee, not instant coffee) in the morning at no extra cost -you see we don't really like filter coffee or instant capuccino served at many hotels.

We only stayed one night, but will definitely come back to this hotel if we visit Milan again. The room was clean, new, well-designed and very pleasant overall. There was no bathtub but the shower area was large (compared to the other hotels we stayed at in Italy).

The free wifi was very welcome (no limit to the number of devices you can use). Breakfast was adequate. The staff was friendly and accommodating; they let us check in a little earlier and check out a little later =)

The only possible drawback may be the location; it's not in the centre of Milan city proper. However it's very near a subway station where you can reach the city centre in about 10-15 minutes. On our way there from Milan train station, with 2 heavy backpacks and various other luggages, we took about 10 minutes by foot; it's relatively easy to find.

Although the hotel itself does not have a restaurant, there are a few eating places nearby (the place just across the street from the hotel had great yet cheap food), so overall we had no issues with the location at all.

I stayed one night. Excellent experience, good single room on the back, very clean and well fitted. Excellent bathroom. I would certainly come back and recommend to anybody. Metro is few hundred meters and you are soon at Duomo (direct, few stops)

Although this hotel is not very glamorous from the outside it certainly delivers for a short stay in Milan. Rooms are newly refurbished and spacious. Staff are extremely helpful - found us two restaurants doing gluten free food. Breakfast was one of the best we had anywhere - 3 juices, 3 cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, cheese and meats, excellent selection of fresh baked goods and toast and a choice of about 10 upmarket jams/spreads. All served in a very attractive breakfast room with a barista on hand to prepare fresh coffee and tea as required. Situated close to the metro and the main railway station and the bus transfer to the airport.

Good Points:-
smart refurbished boutique style rooms
reasonable selection for breakfast but they need some good old English breakfast tea
wifi signal good
nice large bathroom with enormous shower
very good price
fairly close to station for rail travellers
no lift but guy at reception took our cases up for us

Not so good:-
a bit far out from the main tourist area and closest underground a good 10 minutes away through a slightly dubious area (sex shops)

A lovely, clean, recently refurbished hotel with polite stuff and a 24h reception desk.

Most of the stuff speaks English and is willing to help with any questions about transport, spots to eat after a late arrival : ) etc (Actually "La Spingola" was a great family-run trattoria next to the hotel and was the perfect recommendation when arriving late at night after a long journey)

Our room on the first floor was spacious enough, well equipped and quiet. Breakfast was basic (croissants, fruit tarts, juice, bread, cheese, ham, proscuito, yogurts, milk, cereal) but nice with coffee made the minute you asked for it.

The price was borderline acceptable for the service provided/area of the hotel, but as i understand it cheap....for pricey milan!

The neighbourhood was a bit dodgy and late night walking is not the best thing but fine during the day so you can reach centrale metro station in about 10-15 minutes,

I spent three nights in this hotel in late April. It was inexpensive, but I am not sure if I would stay there again. Firstly it is really quite far away from the central station (10-15 mins’ walk depending on whether you have luggage). Second, the neighbourhood is absolutely unattractive (the only good thing seems to be the Carrefour Express down the road). Third, there is not a lift at the hotel and I found it challenging to carry my heavy luggage up the stairs without any help at all. The room itself looked new and was clean. The room size was reasonable. The free wifi was ok.

I was told that breakfast starts at 7am. On the first morning I had it after 8am and it was good. On the second morning it was not ready at 7am and at 7:30am some more food was displayed so I just took whatever was there without any service and no coffee. On the last morning I left before 7am so didn’t have breakfast at all.

I think next time I would prefer a place close to a subway station to this hotel.

Room Tip: Be prepared to take your own luggage up the stairs (no elevator and no help).
