From the neighbourhood and the outside of hotel you may be prepared for a run down little place, but looks can be deceiving. The hotel is beautifully clean, modern, bright little breakfast room and very helpful and friendly staff. I like my luxuries like anyone, but I also appreciate that this little gem in the middle of fashionista Milan its trying to make an effort on the "Eco" and the fair trade front without skimping on the mod-cons.
I booked the hotel because it was close to train station and as long as you have printed the map beforehand you'll be fine...about 15 mins walk. I agree with previous comment about no rain, good wheels on your suitcase though...
Breakfast has been the best so far amongst similarly priced hotels in Rome, Venice, Florence.... Great value, delighted it was more than (or maybe just different to) the usual croissant and packet "toasts". Love the fact that it starts at 7.00am. Breakfast room is sweet and welcoming. I'd happily sit there on my own reading, there are many places where i would feel less comfortable.
Milan is a busy place in the centre and whilst its a 10 -15 minute walk from Sondrino (or Centrale FS) Metro, it was nice to come back to peace and quiet. There don't seem to be many restaurants around but there are some good patisseries and there is a Carrefour Express 50m away if you want to buy stuff for a picnic for Sempione Park.
I would choose to stay here again every time. I don't think you could get better value or a more friendly service in a big city.... A great little find.
