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.
