“Could be better”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

During 2013 Christmas I was accommodated with my family, at BBHotels Residenza Bocconi. The people from the reception were really nice and helpful – they said there are refurnishing and the kitchen is the next on the list. The reception is closed during the night. The hotel is very well connected to the city center by tram 15 and within 10-30 minutes walk from the hotel you can find good places to shop (Carrefour market plus local shops), eat and socialize. We were accommodated in the main building on Via Teulie 7 (which was not the building from the hotel’s ads). The room and bathroom are pleasant and ok for 4 people; the lingerie and towels were immaculate – but for covering in the night there is just a blanket covered by a sheet which is really not hygienic or practical, especially for the families with children – we noted this with a big NO. If the room and bathroom are pleasant, THE KITCHEN IS TERRIBLE – smells hideous and we saw a bug… The kitchen is equipped only with tableware, plates, glasses and some saucepans. The other guests were very noisy until 4 am… So overall the stay was not very pleasant, you could find better. The cleaning is once at 2 days – the sheets and towels are changed, but the floor cleaning was superficial. At the bathroom are provided soaps, shower gel, hairdryer. The city tax is not included in the rooms rate (2 euro/pers/day).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with new kitchen furniture, faced to the inner yard.

We booked a 5 bed apartment for a three night stay for my mother, three sisters and I through booking.com. When we arrived we were told there was no 5 bed apartment available and were given 3 separate rooms which meant one of our party was on their own. This was not what we booked and not what we wanted. The receptionist who dealt with us made it clear she did not understand what our problem was in fact she was the most rude person I have had the displeasure to meet.

Convenient location - just few tram stops from Duomo, friendly staff.
Kitchen equipment is very poor - no electric kettle, no microwave. The main problem though is absence of kitchen knife, so how can we use kitchen if there are no tools to prepare food?
But overall good value for your money, would recommend.

What do you call a self contained apartment with
* no toaster
* no kettle
* no tea towels
* no plug in sink
* no detergents to wash up
* no dish cloth
* no wine glasses
* no bottle opener or cork screw
The shower is good for people of slim build, short arms. I'm 80kgs and 180cm.
The mark of any business is what they do when you make a complaint. This crowd did nothing and tried to tell me I didn't know what I was talking about.

When asked about the advertising of self contained, the receptionist said that's the way Italians live. She told me I had everything an Italian family would use in the kitchen. Those poor Italians. Do they all have to push the cork into the wine bottle like I did?

I should have stayed in the cheap 2 star hotel near Centrale. They included breakfast for half the price.

Obviously no washing machine- We had one in Barcelona.

What did receptionists do before they had earphones? Work maybe!!!

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel and by the sounds of things all BB Hotels.

We stayed in BB Residenzia hotel for 3 days. The apartment was spotlessly clean, furniture new and comfortable. Staff very helpful, we were given explanation about every thing in the room, and was even helpful to show our way around Milan. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: It will be very helpful if there is any signposts to show the way to the hotel.

This place has the worst customer service. We pre-paid everything when we did the booking. We arrived an hour later after the check-in that was supposed to close at 21.00 as our flight got delayed. There was no one there, everything was closed and locked. We called a number that was supposed to be an emergency number many times but no one answered. So I guess that if you have an emergency no one can help you.
We were forced then to search for a new hotel room in Milan in the middle of the night and ended up paying one more room when we had already paid this one. When we contacted them afterwards and explained the situation they refused to refund us because they said it is non refundable! I am never booking at this place again and I would definitely not recommend it to anyone.

We stayed here during a conference for three days. We arrived early, but the receptionist let us in the room to put our luggage down, and offered another one to stay in while ours was being cleared. She spoke English well, and was helpful and kind. The room had a lot of space, was spotlessly clear, everything seemed new and was comfortable (enough towels, complimentary shower gel and soap). We had a cozy bed, a small kitchen with fridge and cooking place, a perfect bathroom, and a nice couch. The wifi worked well. We were on the 4th floor, but air conditioning took care of the heat perfectly. The hotel has good public transportation connections, but the rooms are quiet and calm.
I absolutely recommend this place to anyone, it was perfect for me.
