Initially, the location may seem a little daunting but its actually really ideal as you are far enough from the Duomo but near enough to get there and back. I arrived Monday evening, and was warmly greeted and checked in by Laura. The whole process was quick and easy, and my bags were taken to my suite on the 8th floor, whilst the Duty Hotel Manager invited me to join him for a drink and some light bites at the bar.
I was in suite 808, which overlooked the park, the outside courtyard and the swimming pool. Space wise, very big, with a small sitting room, work desk and separate WC. The bedroom was located behind, with sliding doors to the sitting room. The bathroom was huge, big wash basin, deep bath, toilet & bidet and best of all - a walk in rain shower! Well, this was the first thing I tried out and it was lovely!
The bedroom and sitting room have a flat screen TV, with mini bar, safe and tea/coffee making facilities in the latter.
The bed was very comfy, plenty of pillows and cushions, and the mattress soft but firm.
Both Continental & English breakfast was served in Filini, the hotel's restaurant. Fresh, hot, with a generous selection of food and beverages.
Villapizzone train station on the S5 & S6 lines from Repubblica or Tram #12, right outside the road leading to the hotel. During the day, I took the tram to Duomo, which is about 30 mins, and far more enjoyable if you want to see what's around.
I bought the Milano Card online, and picked it up at Linate airport. It gives you unlimited travel on the train, bus, tram all over the network - www.milanocard.it
There are other benefits/discounts with this card, but you will get all the info from their website.
They were some stains/spots on the carpet and the wall near the work desk but that did not spoil my stay in any way at all. Minor issues which can be fixed quickly.
If you fancy a late night snack, come out of the hotel, walk to the junction and turn right. Walk down about 5 mins and you will see a Turkish Kebab restaurant on your left, across the tram tracks. One of the best lamb kebab's I've eaten!!!
I would stay here again if I visited Milan again, and have nothing negative to say about this hotel.
