This is no Hilton five star hotel, but what it lacks in indulgent luxury, it makes up for in friendliness, cleanliness and proximity to Malpensa.
The friendly welcome we received (in our pigin Italian - they dont really speak English) was the best we have had so far on our extensive travels of Italy. The rooms were basic, but nicely decorated and very very clean. Nice touches, such as comortable european towels, fresh toothbrushes, toothpastes and shower gels were a well appreciated effort.
Comfortable beds, nice ensuite bathrooms, and bedrooms, this hotel is on the basic side, but the effort made with decoration and small touches makes this hotel as good as any Hilton i have stayed in. And for half the price. We paid 65 euros for a double (matrimonio) room (off season).
Walking distance (200m) from the train station, this hotel is a 20 min. bus ride (costing 1.35 euro) from Milan Malpensa airport, and less than 4 euros to Milan centre in less than 45 minutes.
Gallarate itself is not a tourist desitnation, but it a nice town. If you want to see Milan on a budget, or are looking for a stop-over following/preceeding a flight at Malpensa, I would definately reccommend this hotel.
Fabulous value, very friendly.
