We didn't like the hotel and were disappointed when checked-in. The hotel is rather old and not very comfortable. We didn't expect to see a modern or fashionable hotel because the aim of our staying was shopping but we used to stay in hotels with necessary conveniences. We made a mistake when chose this hotel.
Firstly, I think it's very important to mention the condition of the room we lived in. It was old and very dark. The lighting was very poor, especially in the bathroom. I had a feeling of being in a vault. But it's not the most terrible thing of the hotel. Next one is a bed! The bed was absolutely unfit to sleep in. Its spring mattress was too old and obviously haven't been changed for years. First night we couldn't fall asleep cause springs of the mattress were sticking into our backs. Next night my husband laid a mat and a blanket over it.
Secondly, I didn't like breakfast at all. I can't understand how possible it is to service such a poor breakfast. I'm going to enumerate its components: corn flakes (not muesli), croissants (was it a good luck?), cheese and ham (which you should have grabbed immediately because there were just 10 or 15 pieces of them), fruit and small buns. Really, I don't cavil at every trifle but it would be better if they have just offered muesli, cottage cheese, some bread and enough ham and cheese.
In addition, the hotel is not far from Milan. We travelled by car and it was very convenient to get to Milan, just 15 minutes. And the hotel has its own car park but it's not very big and if you come lately you will risk not to park your car there!
In conclusion, I want to add that the staff were very kind and good. Apparently, they smoothed over a part of negative emotions we had.
