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.

Ok, so Stanzione Centrale is a bit sketch but this hotel is much nicer than you would expect from a train station area. Accessible (about 4 blocks) to the green line metro. I used to live in Milan and when I came back for a visit, my place to stay fell through for a couple nights. Biocity accommodated my super last minute reservation for an affordable price. Very comfortable, great breakfast and the guy is very nice and courteous. My only complaint was the wifi didn't work in my room except right next to the door, but the second night they gave me a password for a second network that worked much better.

Location: Very close to the train station. The way from the train station to the hotel didn`t feel too safe but it is okay. It is a little bit far to the centre if you want to be just in the heart of the city; however there is a metro stop, about 500 meters from the hotel which goes directly to the centre in 10 minutes.
The rooms: Very modern rooms, comfortable beds, spacious bathroom. There is also a minibar with many options in it. The view from the window is not that nice though.
The price: It is an amazing deal. Much much cheaper compared to the hotels in Milan.
The breakfast: Nice variety of food and drinks. Nothing too fancy but very satisfying.

Room Tip: The hotel has two names, I think one of them belongs to the old hotel before it was renovated. We al...

Stayed for two nights in this small but charming hotel. It is near to the train station and close to a tram stop. The room is with good size, not crammed at all. Simple, but sufficient breakfast. The staff is VERY helpful. You can leave your luggage with them for a few days if you decide to take a side trip.

Excellent room. Super clean hotel room. Nice breakfast for this kind of hotel. Very close to Central station for trains or metro only 5 minutes walk. We didnt have any complains. You can ask at the reception for places to visit in Milan. Generally very happy.
