This is a lovely hotel. The room (106) was a really good size. The bathroom was massive and we also had a little balcony. The breakfast was great. I do like it when you get boiled eggs in a European breakfast and would have liked that! But the cheese and meat and bread spread was more than substantial.
The 2 receptionists over the weekend both had an ok level of English but not great (it's my fault for not speaking Italian!) but we did have a bit of trouble explaining what we wanted.
The only downside was that everything I wanted to see was either close to the Duomo or down on the canal. Easy enough to get to in the day by walking (40 mins to walk to the Duomo) or the Metro. But the first night we arrived late and got a cab. It was €6.20 before you get in. And if the hotel calls the cab for you then it is charged from when they accept the fare - so it started at €9 before we even went anywhere! It is the way it is in Milan!
The hotel is not in the prettiest area and I wouldn't have liked to have walked back to the hotel at night alone. I almost got my phone pickpocketed at the station - but luckily I managed to stop that happening!
So, I LOVED the hotel itself, just not keen on the area. It was a great price too.
