We weren't expecting much as the price was so reasonable, but i have to say I was very impressed with the hotel. It was spotlessly clean, beds changed, fresh towels & room tidied every day. The staff were very friendly & helpful and breakfast was ok for a continental breakfast, lots of nice pastries, fruit and yoghurts etc, the only thing that wasn't good was the toaster, which was useless!
The area the hotel is in isn't buzzing but we found a good restaurant called San Michele a 5 minute walk away in via Monfalcone, they did great seafood platters, meat platters & pizzas.
The metro is a 5-10 min walk from the hotel and is brilliant, it runs from 6am til midnight and you can buy a 3 day ticket for about 5euros which you can also use on the trams & buses. We also ate at Siu's bar in Lima (which is on the red metro line) where if you buy a drink you can eat for free, the buffet there is amazing! Lima is a good area for shopping too, not as expensive as the centre of Milan.
We flew to Malpensa airport, got the train to Milano Centrale (10 euro) and a taxi to the hotel (35 Euro), so on the way back, we got the metro to Cadorna (1.50 euro), then the train to the airport (11 Euro).
You can get straight to the Duomo Piazza on the red line too, which is very nice, highly recommend a visit there and into the Duomo. We also went to see the last supper, which was a fantastic experience and one I will never forget.
All in all, we had a great time and would definitely go back - the hotel is great for what you pay
