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.
I rarely saw such small rooms at a 4 star hotel. In fact, the whole hotel is resized, as if after designing it, they zoomed out on the plane. Otherwise, everything is pretty ok. The rooms are clean, odorless, the bathroom is good with Valentino tile in some rooms. Breakfast is enough for everyone but do not expect anything rich, we are in northern Italy. For how small the rooms are, I can't give more than 3 stars.
This was very a good value hotel. The room was small, but clean and adequate for us. Breakfast was a good selection, with friendly staff. Special coffees were offered free of charge too. I would like to mention in particular the reception staff, who were exceptionally helpful, providing directions to Metros, trams, etc. The two, who were particularly helpful to us were Adhuro (hope that is spelt correctly) and Claudio - many thanks :-) The location of the hotel was fine for us. Around 15/20 mins on the tram into the centre. There are a number of good value - but excellent - restaurants/pizzerias close to the hotel, so we didn't have far to go after eating! I saw an earlier review had mentioned the smell of smoke in the bathroom (they thought that a previous guest had smoked in there); however I think the problem is the A/C or vent in the bathroom. I went to the bathroom one night in the middle of our stay and there was a very strong smell of smoke. Either the smoke is being drawn in from outside or someone is smoking in their own bathroom but the smoke is drawn to other bathrooms using the same ventilation shaft. But it was not a major problem for me - I went back to sleep!
Hi there I feel very compelled to write this review. I have just come back from milan for a five day Easter break.. Stayed in this hotel me and my teen ager son. Great location , perfect breakfast .friendly staff..
This hotel is about a 30 minute journey from the centre of Milan but is well located for the metro or tram service, the later being at the back of the hotel and the nearest metro station about a 10 minute walk, both easy to use. The reception is small but well staffed, open all night and the staff very helpful with good English spoken. Our room was very clean and comfortable, good wardrobe space and comfortable single beds, the bathroom was well equipped with a decent, but small shower. Only down side was that our room, on the eighth floor, was very hot and to open the window let in the noise of the trams. Did not use any other facilities but all looked very nice. Altogether good for a short stay in this beautiful city.
A decent hotel on the inner ring road a tram ride from Milan city centre. The staff were very helpful. The hotel lobby is very bright clean and modern while the hotel itself is well maintained but dated. The rooms are functional but not big or cramped. The on suite bathroom is fully fitted but having the shower head on the side wall rather than the end wall makes using the shower awkward. I realise the pipework comes through the side wall so that's where the mixer tap should be but the shower head could have been put on the end wall. Only minor but after 2 showers it becomes annoying. My other gripe which is linked to the age of the hotel is the lack of air con coupled with the fact that , as explained to me by the evening receptionist, they only have heating which is switched off due to the warm weather but this stops you being able to use the ducted fan for some ventilation. The sliding windows have a night roller shutter and external hinged windows that open inward into the narrow gap between them and the inner sliding window. However with the roller blinds down you can't have the outer window open and thus no fresh air plus it's a slightly busy road with ambulance route for hospital nearly opposite so having the window open lets in the noise. Ask for a room at the back. Despite being a non Non smoking hotel the bathroom in our room stank of cigarettes where the previous occupant had gone to avoid the room smoke detector and narrow opening window. The staff did their best to eliminate the smell with air fresheners but we weren't offered a room change. All in all not bad but it was booked as part of a mystery weekend away package. Personally I would have booked a room closer to the city centre as it was too far to nip back for a rest. That said if you're going to the nearby exhibition places it would be better.
A lovely friendly basic hotel it does what it says on the box about 10 mins from the nearest metro station (Amendola) and it does a good selection for breakfast staff are helpful and will give recommendations for places to visit while you stay with them
The hotel is nice and clean, very good for this price. Breakfast is good, rooms are comfortable. But it us not really near fro metro station and there are not many restaurants or cafes around. To Duomo- 25 minutes (from Amendola), to centrale- 40 minutes (from Loto) with 1 line change. Very nice district of Milan, silent and green.
I came here to celebrate my birthday earlier on this year and the hotel was just gorgeous. Bedroom had everything you need, the restaurant was lovely (waiter was so generous - even gave us a basket of fruit with our meal). Taxis to the centre were roughly €8 which the receptionist kindly ordered for us and so many transport links. Such a fabulous hotel for a fabulous occasion :-)
I stayed here for one night on my way to US and it met all my expectations. The hotel is near a metro station and easy to get into central Milan. There is a large supermarket next door for all your needs and several restaurants and cafes nearby to cater for your budget and taste. The staff were very helpful and rooms were clean and comfortable.
