Initially, we were little skeptical of the location because it was not centered near all the touristy spots and the local neighborhood had graffiti on the walls. Upon check-in the receptionist recommended using the Metro to get from place to place and it ended up being very convenient. We felt safe walking to/from the metro station. The metro stop is around the corner about a block away and it was a quick and very cheap way to get around town. Also, the hotel is off the main Metro line so there was never a need to transfer trains and we never got lost. The room itself was suitable. It was small, although the bathroom was quite large and decorated very well. The view is not pleasant (We were looking at an apartment building) so we didn't spend very much time in the room. The bar is nice, very spacious and wide open in the lobby area. I ordered a pizza and it was one of the best pizza's we had on our trip! The hotel seemed understaff (Maybe because it was off-season for Milan). We had to wait a while to check-in and check-out and there was nobody available to help us with our bags.
Very helpful staff, led by an exceptional management team, did their utmost to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast facilities were adequate. Hotel position is the one thing that disappoints, but should not put guests off staying here. Facilities are perfectly adequate for business and leisure travellers alike.
Everything was great! The only issue is the location is a bit far from the city center and the surrounding area is a bit run down. However, being away from the city center has its advantages, like it was very quiet
This is the second time we have been to this hotel and it did not disappoint. The staff where so friendly and helpful. The location is great near to the centrer but also in an area where there are enough restaurants that you don't have to go back into the centre if you don't want to. The breakfast was lovely and the staff where so helpful and by the end of our staff the catering staff knew my order and would deliver it before I sat down which was really nice.
"Friendly hotel very close to Milan Conference Cent"
This appeared to me a family run hotel with very friendly staff. It had a few odd quirks however, like an awful fruit juice and coffee machine (you need to ask the breakfast staff for your preferred coffee) and display cabinets in the breakfast room containing 007 memorabilia. The room itself was very pleasant, but had a very badly lit wardrobe. The shower head was also more like just standing under a tap.
The hotel was about 15 mins walk from the nearest metro station. But once we found it, it was a short walk to a nice area of restaurants and bars and a park. The wifi is not free, but as it was our honeymoon they kindly offered us free in room wifi. The breakfast bar was good, but there are nicer and cheaper places to eat in the evening.
