--The hotel is located very CLOSE to Milano Centrale Station.
--Additionally, the rooms are MODERN, bright, and SPACIOUS.
--The hotel staff is NOT very FRIENDLY & UNACCOMMODATING.
--Also, the hotel is surrounded by
CONSTRUCTION that is VERY NOISY and obstructs the normal entrance to the hotel (it's somewhat DIFFICULT TO FIND).
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Delicious & inexpensive MIlano cuisine at NORIN CAFFEE BISTRO. It's a common spot for the locals.
The experience was very good
The hotel is very close to the main train station
The rooms are very confortable and brand new
The staff is very nice
We were in rome and venice, but not other hotel was close to this hotel
We came into basically stay the night and hopefully get a little bit of Milan in during the 18 hours. The room was big and if I had to categorize it, something like if an 80's business person had designed a room. That said, it was nice and huge
actually. The location is a bit away from the main tourist locals, but a cab ride and we were there and then we got a nice taste of a non super tourist location at night. Plus in the morning we walked to the train, which took us to Malpensa easily.
The Una Century is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in, easily the best in Italy and continental Europe. The room was huge, even by American size standards. The couch and lounge area, the working area and the separate bedroom were all
unexpectedly large. The mechanical shades on the big wall-to-wall windows overlooking Milan were a nice touch. We made use of the large space by getting some local produce, bread and cheese and just having dinner in our room some nights. The room was very clean and in good condition.
The location was also quite amazing, as the hotel is a five-minute walk from the Central Station in Milan (where you can get trains in and out of Milan, buses to the airport as well as two lines of the Metro).
The breakfast (included in the stay) was also amazing. The selection of meats and breads and cakes and fruits rivaled that of any 4-star restaurant.
At this point, I feel like I should say something negative to give this review the 'feel of legitimacy.' I am seriously struggling to find anything in our experience that I didn't like.
To be fair, we didn't use the fitness facilities or the internet access, so I can't comment on those. We didn't interact with the staff very much. When we did interact with the staff, they were very professional.
I will stay at the Una Century if at all possible on all future trips to Milan.
