“Comfortable place in a quiet environment”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

First, I wondered who would stay in place like this? Quiet, aloof, not much happening around. But it became my oasis at Milan during the recent summer days. I arrived at Milan on a day of european taxi strike. Fortunately, the hotel staff guided me on phone to reach it. Staff was helpful in a professional way, never disappointed. Take Bus 50, not 61 from Cadorna station.
Room: well, 3 star hotels in Europe are never exciting, but they are usually practical. The room was clean but somewhat inadequately lit. Heavy curtains did not allow view of outside. Bathroom was functional.
Breakfast: good for vegetarian; no English breakfast though. Fills your stomach for the forenoon.
A batch of tourists, possibly from a nearby country swept everything in 10 minutes flat. Half into their stomach, rest into their bags. No one complained. I enjoyed the scene.
Transportation: bus 50 and 90 stops are nearby. Buy tickets from next lane tabachhi and enjoy
Milan. Tram stations are far.
Food: no room service, no lunch or dinner. Just step out and get Italian, Chinese and Japanese. I ate Chienese at Ristorante Singapore for 4 nights. You can also get good supply from the Pam, a nearby department store on via Vancenzia Foppa, just 5 minutes way.

Room Tip: Never take a room near the lift. It gets noisy.

Hi People,

Im actually still here and thought id help some of you decided.

The Hotel isn't too bad tbh. its nothing special. The reception area is clean and the staff are polite (except for the cleaning supervisor).
Dont expect too much though. Jus a simple place. Breakfast isn't anything exciting. For a land of coffee drinkers the coffee here soo fat has been pretty rank.

Lots of mixed reviews about this place but its actually not so bad. As long as u don't mind a bit of a travel from the airport or to Milan Centrale. We traveled from Malpensa Airport (Milan, MXP). Got a bus got €10 euros to Milan Centrale (45mins ish) then got a team from across the read Number 91 to the hotel. be sure to ask the driver to let u know when u reach Washington. or for yourself look out for the "emo" petrol station about 40 mins into your tram ride. or if u think thats too much effort you can get aTaxi for about €16.

Travel Safe x

We stayed here for a couple of nights just prior to leaving Italy. The hotel seems to attract mainly a business/ professional clientele and so you won’t see any large tour groups invading the place. The front desk staff is enormously cordial and helpful in any way possible. The blond-haired lady in particular seemed to take a special interest in giving us referrals of places to see and where to eat. A word of caution: If you’re a tourist, the hotel is not really close to any of the major attractions in Milan with the exception of the “Navigli” [Canals], and so be prepared to use taxis or to do a great deal of walking. The rooms are on the quite smallish side but quite comfortable and clean. If you’re departing from Milano via Malpensa Airport, allow at least three hours for travel and checkin. A hired car [recommended, arranged by the hotel] will cost you 95 euros. Traffic in the afternoon and evening hours will possibly be horrendous! Morning is OK

Room Tip: The hotel is located on a side street and away from traffic noise. Be aware that police and ambulan...

Tiny room.Very noisy as it was located beside the elevator. Location of the hotel isn't great either, quiet a good walk into city center and/or bus trip. Staff were friendly and helpful though.
Milan is a great city and the weather was lovely this time of year, I would definitely recommend a trip, but unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
