Stayed here for the Grand Prix, it was about 20min from Milan central station. The hotel charged us €54 when we left for local taxes and also for a bottle of water from the mini bar, it's not clear that the water is to be paid for (other reviews state they are complimentary). Breakfast is okay but they ran out of eggs and by the time they put more out my breakfast was cold. The air con in the room doesn't switch off completely leaving me with a dry throat and I'm now stuffed up with a runny nose and watery eyes. The shower head in the bath didn't fit so needed to be held up, not ideal. It was overall an okay hotel for somewhere to put down your head.
The Hotel in a good area, but far away from the center of the city. The rooms and bathrooms a little outdated, but clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. If you are OK to stay out of the center and have a very basic room, then this hotel can be a good choice.
Visited Milan in January. The hotel is near to good transport links. Easy to get around, definitely worth the money to get yourself a travel card and download the Milan Travel Network App. Visited lots of local sites by hopping on and off the trams and underground with the same card. The hotel was ok, nice selection for breakfast. Room was dated but we liked it.
Stayed for 3 nights in June 2017. The room was small but clean and comfortable. Large supermarket right next door, 10 min walk to the nearest metro with easy access to central Milan. Staff were very helpful specially Ms. Angela. Directed me to some fantastic restaurants 10 mins walk from the hotel.
Stayed for 2 nights at the end of June. The room was big enough for a short stay, clean and comfortable (no smell of smoke as others have commented), fridge in the room with complimentary bottled water.... Very welcome as it was 34 degree . Large supermarket right next door, 10 min walk to the nearest metro with easy access to central Milan. Staff were very customer focused and very helpful. Directed us to a great flee market on Saturday and some fantastic restaurants on Saturday evening 10 mins walk from the hotel (well worth the walk). Better variety of restaurants than central Milan. Would stay there again..
We spent two nights at this hotel as part of a tour. The hotel is around 20 minutes by underground and a short walk from the central railway station. We a five minute walk to the nearest stop. The room was fine, very clean but a little small, typical of a city centre Italian hotel. Great breakfast and friendly staff. There was supermarket next door if you need anything.
Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of May. Very friendly and helpful staff. I found the room too smokey on the first night and they happily changed room for the rest of our stay which didn't have any smell of smoke at all. Breakfast was good with a reasonable selection. Tube was a 15min walk away which was a bit too long after a busy day out, but the tram which goes directly into the Duomo centre is just round the corner. The tickets work for both and we found the best value was the 48 hr ticket. You can buy them from newsagents(in the tube station), bars and the hotel. Would recommend the restaurant across the road - basic, excellent food, good value and full of Italians. If we could afford to stay more centrally we would but for the price a very good hotel
Three of us stayed at this hotel in May 2017 with one twin room booked and one single. We booked this hotel due to the positive reviews on Tripadvisor though I was a little apprehensive about the comments relating to the rooms being hot and the noise from the main street. In the end this proved to be unfounded as my room had air conditioning (activated by the controls near the door) so didn't need to open the window though when I did the sound didn't seem that bad. Overall the hotel was very clean and comfortable. Only negatives were the size of our room. We had a twin but given the size of the room the beds were right next to each other like a double bed. Also as far as I was aware there's no restaurant in the hotel but this doesn't matter as there's plenty to eat around there. In fact we spent a lot of time at the Globe Bar just up the road. An additional bonus is the small supermarket below the hotel so you can stock up on any provisions. Best thing about it though is its proximity to the San Siro. Just 10mins walk. If I go to the San Siro again I will definitely stay at this hotel.
We stayed at the Best Western Hotel Astoria for a few nights in May 2017. We had a room with two single beds. Whilst previous reviews are quite correct that the rooms are very small they are quite well appointed. The rooms have a mini bar, kettle, television and safe. You are provided with lots of toiletries in the bathroom which is great and the room was cleaned well throughout the duration of our visit. I would say that since the rooms are so small this is probably a hotel that you could only comfortably stay at for a few days. There is a continental breakfast on offer for €6 per day. Considering the price there is a good selection including bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, croissants, ham, cheese and jam etc. The element that made our stay was the customer service provided by the Hotel Astoria staff who were always extremely helpful and polite. They suggested places where we could eat affordably. They helped us with respect to affordable transportation using the Metro. They printed out our bus tickets for free so that we could get home from the airport in the UK. Overall they generally made us feel very welcome and for that reason we would definitely return to the hotel if we were minded to take another short trip to Milan.
The hotel is located quite close to the good bar/restaurant street nearby(sorry forgot the street name). There is about 10 minutes walk to the closest metro station, but there is a tram stop just behind the hotel. Just be aware that the metro line is every 10 mins so very different to London. The reception is small but well staffed, plus they are all very friendly. The Room we stayed is on second floor, nice and clean for the price we paid. Only noted that we can sometimes hear people talking next door.
