Minerva Hotel Milan
Ranked #380 of 431 Hotels in Milan
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Pretty bad:
-Lock on the door not working properly. I found my door unlocked several times!!!
-Power cut one night (unbeliveable)
-Noisy street: Traffic, trams & underground. I used ear plugs every night.
-Bathroom narrow
-Towels rather small
-Not enough variety in breakfast
-Lady in the reception pretty rude (all other staff was nice)
-Internet connection expensive and not working properly. Only able to connect one device. Information about pricing of internet connection on the booking website is untrue
-Problems plugging devices. Although I experienced this also in other Italian hotels. Take a power adapter with you.
-Next time I will go to another place

Pros:
-Bed was good. Matrix looks new and it feels really nice.
-Cheap (considering that Milan is a very expensive city)
-Relatively well located

Excellent location with access to trams and trains. It is a basic hotel with high standards of cleanliness, hotel a little dated, needs a modernisation. Tv in rooms and some with Air conditioning. Breakfast good with some variety. Welcoming, friendly and helpful staff.

The staff was friendly, but the rooms are very modest, the bathroom door can not be closed. Hotel location is good.

Unfortunately stayed at this Hotel (if that is what you can call it) which was booked for us by a third party. If we'd known beforehand how bad it was, we'd never have given it a second thought. There was black mould in between the tiles all around the shower recess and along the bottom of the shower doors. The shower itself was useless, a few drops of water came down out of the normal holes and a torrent erupted from above the shower rose and went in any direction depending on the pitch of the rose. We had what I would call over-sized tea towels instead of proper towels and some of these had holes in them. The air-conditioning was completely ineffective and the a/c switches all broken - the room was hot and uncomfortable. Breakfast was sadly lacking - no cereal, no fresh fruit, no cheese or ham - lucky to get a decent cup of tea. Only plus was it's proximity to the Metro but I would never ever contemplate staying there again. I can't imagine how they got to be 3 Star rated. A fiasco from start to finish - be warned.

Good.
The staff were very nice and laid back.
Those thin towels that everyone else gives out about, I quite liked.
Bad.
The heating/ac didn't work, shower door didn't close, the wardrobe door didn't open, shower took longer than I'd shower for to heat up, the tv had no remote and very little signal. Not very clean.

I stayed here last night in a rainy day of Novber. The hotel has very poor quality of standard: bathroom dirty and small, electrics plugs open, bedroom light not working, towels super thin and most annoying the noise in the room:you can hear the tram running almost all night! I wouldn't stay there again even if it is cheap and good located.
