Reviewed 16 June 2012

I booked this hotel due to its convenient location for my business trip. Not good location for visiting Milan, too far and too ugly hood. Hotel is basic, more or less clean, some 700m from metro. It faces a busy street with a lot of traffic, but sound proofing of windows is good and you won't hear cars. But you will hear everything from the room next door, so good luck. Beds and pillows could be newer. Breakfast is really basic but ok.

Firstly i didn't know what to expect from this hotel, as I do travel quite often. This was my first time in Milan. The hotel is located 500 meters from the metro station so its a quick journey into the city center. The hotel staff were amazingly friendly and helpful almost physic in some sense. Any questions we had in terms of getting to places or general information the staff will go out of there way to provide you with the right information. On the first day the concierge even escorted us to the station, and gave us a quick tour, this kind of service you would only expect from a 5 star hotel. The only downside was the size of the room, which for me was a bit small, however wen i return to Milan I would definitely stay there again. Ciao

I can reccomend St. John Hotel as non-expensive base for discovering of Milan. It is located in Milan's suburb Sesto San Giovanni 500 meters away from the administrative border of the city. You can easily reach the city center by bus or underground (both stops are fairly close to the hotel). Rooms are in the "Ibis style": nor large nor small but clean and well equiped. Breakfast was rich enough but breakfast room was too far away from my room (hotel consists from two housings and if your room and restoraunt in the different housings be prepared to the long walk).
Staff was polite and helpful. WiFi internet is free but did not work in my room, instead the cable internet (which is also free) worked well.

The service at this hotel is fantastic, the staff are so friendly and helpful, they are willing to look up places and print of information for you in the evening. They always put the vistors first and are always pleasant regardless of the numerous questions you ask them. This hotel deserves a lot of credit than all the comments below. I will honestly say my family and I were really impressed with this hotel. In milan there isn't much to do any way, however less than a four minute walk is the metro it will take you all over milan and to railway stations where you can go to venice, verona, portofino, rome etc. The breakfast has a huge variety compared to most hotels; croissants, toast, rolls, fruits, yoghurt, biscuits, pastry and a range of spreadings. They gave us lots of brocheurs and cards to help us find our away around and know the best places to eat at. The hotel says it's self what it provides and if your travelling during the day like which is beyond satisfaction. If your looking for people willing to help you out i.e. good service and somewhere to sleep, wash and eat a decent good breakfast then this is the perfect place to be. If i go to milan again i am certain i will be staying here again.

I've been staying in that hotel regularly, last year (2009) and this year (2010).
The quality of the hotel is now far from a 4stars quality!

Internet is not working anymore... the subway is that close from the hotel that you can feel it during the night... it seems that you are bothering the people at the main desk any time you talk to them... furniture in the rooms are not fitting to the size of the room...

It would be a nice hotel, if it was not pretending to be 4stars... the price is low for italy, but you have the quality you are paying....

not best situated... it took us maybe more than 60 minutes to get to the center (in the morning rush hour though)... the receptionist (Luigi i think) wasn't exactly kind with us...he didn't give us even a bite from the sandwich he was munching while accomodating us ..and these tunnels that direct you to the elevators are at least unusual and strange for a hotel... the rooms were nice but again non smoking, the window couldn't open and the shower didn't even have a hanger so we should hold it while douching... but nevertheless it's fine... we had no problems
