This place was clean and pleasant. The room was bright and very quiet at night even through our room faced the main road. The bed was large and comfy. The towels were great. Maybe the only thing is the size of the shower. It is a bit small, it was fine for me but if you are a large person it might not work for you. The breakfast was very good with a large selection to choose from. The manager made his presence know to us and he was very pleasant and accommodating. All in all I would recommend this place to my friends. You access the main door off the main street down a small walk way. There is a lighted sign on the main street with a arrow pointing you in the right direction. I say this as the cab driver did not see it but we did.
We had a good experience at this hotel. Very clean and nice rooms. Typical European small room which is always a problem with big suitcases, but a functional closet and nice rain head shower. Would stay here again. The Lima metro entrance is right outside the door. There are good restaurants in the area. About a 10 minute walk to the station.
This hotel is conveniently situated on a very busy shopping street in the heart of Milan, but the outside noise doesn't really bother you as the hotel has soundproofed its rooms, at least we were not disturbed by it on the 5th floor. It is within 30 to 40 minutes level walk to the centre of Milan. We arrived here late morning and were not allowed to check in until 2pm, though it appeared other people arriving were checking in - can it be just our room that wasn't ready? Our room was comfortable and clean but the bathroom was very small with a toilet that was very temperamental and a tiny shower cubicle with flimsy doors that kept falling apart. The shower fittings were also badly situated - each time you tried to move in the shower, the handle was knocked stopping the water completely. Breakfast was ok - large selection to choose from but I personally don't like eggs bathing in water or chopped up bits of frankfurter. The staff were not overly friendly either, only speaking to you if they had to, with the exception of Alberto on reception who showed more courtesy. Beware if you have mobility problems too - to reach the lift, you have to climb a flight of stairs and the lift itself is also a tiny space suitable for a maximum of 3 people.
Stayed at the City Hotel for a couple of nights after a stay in Lake Como and would definitely recommend. Hotel is situated on one of the main shopping streets in Milan and about 20 -25 minute walk from Duomo Square and all the main designer shops. The room we had was huge with two sets of double doors opening onto a huge balcony overlooking the main road which can be very busy and noisy but the glazing did cut a lot of this out when the doors were closed,The breakfast room was very with a good choice of food to set you up for the day and everywhere was very clean,Overall a very enjoyable stay.
Perfect location for sightseeing Alittle tricky for our taxi driver & us to spot though as entrance is inside a shopping arcade Lovely touch of a free welcome drink in the evening in the lobby area & nibbles Breakfast good for continental Sofa's alittle shabby in lobby for a 4* hotel Lift can only take 3 people alittle squashed when you have your luggage. Bathrooms could have been designed alittle better as our toilet was behind the door, rooms clean & good room service menu.
Hotel is okay, you can say it's cosy, rooms are quite small unless you get a suite. Overall very clean and breakfast is very good. Best thing about his hotel is the location, in the mid of the busy Corso Buenos Aires, a shopping hub, also it is about 20 min walking to Milano Central Station. There is also a metro stop very near to the hotel.
A perfect location near shopping centres, train and bus stations. A beautiful hotel with clean freshly appointed rooms- we even had a balcony with views. A welcome drink with tasty gourmet foods tantalise your taste buds on arrival. Kevin is the attentive Bar man. All of the staff under Omar's management are like a family. The staff are helpful and patient- thank you all. We were happy with the delicious breakfast choices as well. I highly recommend this hotel.
Pros: - excellent location. Easy walking distance from Milan central (both trains and busses from the airport stop there) - Lima metro station a minute away - good location. Lots more of shops and places to eat nearby - breakfast is incredible value at only 3EUR per person per night - spacious clean comfortable and quiet rooms - complimentary welcome drinks and snacks - great service from the staff Cons: Nothing to note here. Would be very happy to return.
Stayed here for one night while in transit to lake como. It was in a great, central location. Staff very friendly. Wonderful breakfast. Room comfy and deceptively large. Complimentary welcome drinks were a lovely touch! Will be back
It takes a hour on the train from the airport to milan central. We walked to the hotel from the central train station and it took about 15 minutes. On arrival were were offered a free welcome drink and given keys to our room on the 4th floor overlooking the road. We did not find the road noisy except for a couple of loud motorcycles. The air con had been on and it was nice and cool. The bed was large and super comfy and room size was as expected with a bathroom with well stocked toiletries. Breakfast was amazing for just £3 each! Lots of choice with a small hot offering. You could not find better in the whole of Milan! You also have free coffee/hot chocolate available in the small bar all day long with free croissants. Reception staff really helpful. The lift is small but we only used it to get our cases up and down to the room. The metro stopped almost outside - the red line - and Lima stop. You can get a full day pass for£4.50 if you wish. We walked everywhere, the cathedral Dumo took us 25 mins and the castle another 10 on top. We walked 13 miles on both the full days we were there. We found that food was a lot cheaper outside of the main tourist areas. One restaurant offered a 1 litre of coke for 18 euros!! As for Milan, well it's not a patch on other cities and not much to see apart from shops and graffiti. The hotel was great and would be happy to recommend but as for Milan, we won't be back in a hurry. Go to Prague, Berlin or Amsterdam, sorry Milan!
