What a pleasant surprise!!!

One of the best hotels we have stayed at for any price. Every amenity you could want or think of. Wifi and breakfast were included in the room rate, and what a sumptuious breakfast it was. The staff was over the top in friendlyness and very eager to please.

Good hotel, reasonable price, no shuttle

Good location right on Buenos Aires, close to shopping, the Duomo, and the train station. Clean and typical of a 3-4 star hotel in Italy. Website says there is a shuttle service offered, which is definitely not true. We had to walk to the train station and buy tickets to the MXP airport which is an hour away.

a classy place

Clean and comfortable, with a friendly and helpful staff. There's a Metro stop right by the hotel, but it's a pleasant walk to the town center, and the hotel is relatively near the area with all the high end designers' shops, for those inclined to go there.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

Peck, "The Gastronomy's Temple," on Via Spedare near the Duomo is a must visit for foodies. Most other high end food shops-- anywhere in the world-- pale in comparison.

Excellent

The hotel is in an excellent location. The registration desk reps. went out of their way to please us. The breakfast (food) was excellent and plentiful exceeded only by the service personnel. The room was good and overall clean, but the cleaning people failed to fill the tissue paper box on 2 consecutive days. Not enough soap and shampoo. We left early morning for business and returned late evning to a nice relaxing place. Overall excellent stay.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

I stronly DO NOT recommend going on a trip to the "Discount Malls" such as Saravella and Foxtown. They are really not worth the money and the time. An excellent small restaurant less than five minutes from the hotel is Rossy & Gabrielle. The food is excellent and a waiter by the name of "[...]" goes out of his way to be helpful. They have an italian menu translated into enlish for english speaking customers.

Hotel in Milan

As with most European hotels, you can't judge by the entrance. You can virtually miss it if you walk fast enough. When you step in, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

La Risacca Blu is a phenomenal seafood restaurant recommended by the concierge with a great atmosphere. Better make a reservation because it gets very busy.

It could have been a nice stay

The check-in process could have been more smooth. I booked a double room for single use and received a single room instead. Back to reception, the manager claimed he did not have the booking details of my reservation. When I showed him a print out I received a slightly larger room with a cramped-in queen size bed. I am used to small Hotel rooms in Europe but this room was very small. [...]In terms of location, Porta Venezia is a good starting point when you are in Milan. The subway station is close to the hotel and there are plenty of shops and restaurants around the area.

Best Western Hotel Cristoforo Colombo

Would say this is 3-3.5 star hotel and not 4. Staff friendly and helpful. Room had hardwood floors and very clean. Breakfast buffet was not high quality or veggie friendly. Beds very uncomfortable. Bathroom smelled of old plumbing but was clean. Had Tub/shower combo and bidet.
