The decor of this hotel was nice: minimalistic, beige, reminded me of a spa; but I would not call it 'luxurious' by any means. The room was very basic. The breakfast was simple but the food was fresh (not always the case at a continental-style breakfast). The staff was pleasant, especially Alvin.
The greatest frustration was that the website claims, "In close proximity to the hotel, the Metro station connects to the most important spots in town." THIS IS NOT THE CASE! The nearest Metro station is Porta Venezia, which was at least a 15 minute walk (at a fast pace). Milan is a very big city, and it is impossible to walk everywhere - one must use the Metro, so I found it very inconvenient that the nearest station was so far away. I had emailed the hotel before arrival to confirm the proximity of the Metro, but I did not receive a reply. I took a leap of faith that the positive reviews I had read would prove worthwhile.
The neighborhoods between the station and the hotel are residential and quiet, which was a little unsettling late at night as no one was around but us. The single advantage of this hotel's location is that it is only several blocks away from the excellent outlet store: Il Salvagente, located at Via Bronzetti, 16 (turn left out of the hotel, take the first right and it is down several blocks on the right). www.salvagentemilano.it
