Best Western Hotel Major4.0 out of 5.0

The position of the hotel is great, just near the metro station. Since it was raining so bad when we arrived, this really came in handy. The breakfast was nice ( a lot of options ). I saw some comments about uncomfortable beds, but I really liked ours. It was a double bed ( not two beds joined ) and it was just ok ( not too soft, not too hard ). The noise coming from other rooms was literally too much. I have never stayed in a hotel where you could hear the other people as if they are staying in your room, too. Plus, if you have the "luck" to have neighbours like ours who played music up until 4 am and did burping contests...you will understand the issue.
First visit to Milan for design week, all hotels were very expensive. Yes this hotel is a little dated but it was clean and we found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Plenty of choice for breakfast, please see pics. The metro is just outside the hotel on the corner, very easy to get around. The hotel sells tickets at reception so much easier than trying to work out the underground machines. The hotel is situated on the Yellow line Lodi Tibb Day tickets are the best as you can use them as many times as you like and only €4.50 each We caught the bus from Malpensa airport to central station, then a taxi ride to the hotel. Taxi cost €15 We caught the fast train back to the airport from Caborna station. €13 and takes 40mins. Seem to be every half hour. There are not many restaurants around the hotel, we caught the tube to Dumo ( 4 stops) it brings you out in front of the catherdral. From here you can walk to most of the main attractions and find plenty of places to eat.
The customer service was absolutely terrible. People working in the hotel behaved like they worked there for a punishment. During the check in the documents were literally thrown to me. When called to reception and asked about WiFi I was asked if I bothered to check the hotel book. When I had breakfast I was pretty much kicked out from my table, because I happened to sit at a bigger one and apparently I should only use a single table. Understood the reasoning but the execution was extremely rude. All the staff looked angry all the time. At the same time the price was at quite a premium. I will avoid this hotel at all costs....
Hotel Major must have been a major hotel in the past... But its glory has gone. The good sides: - it's practical for a visit or a business travel in Milan. The metro is literally located at the foot of the hotel and is 4 stations away from the heart of the city. - it has a definitely old-fashioned charm that is in keeping with the old tramways and the ancient decoration of the metro. - our bed was very comfortable, although it was the only thing that looked brandnew. - it is kept very clean (bedroom, bathroom, breakfast hall and corridors) Now for the down sides: - the shower could be more spacious - the staff could be a little more helpful and / or friendly - the decoration of the bedrooms is very old-fashioned, which we found both depressing and surprising in a 4-star hotel (but some visitors might find it quaint) On the whole, we don't regret the experience, but we may opt for another hotel if we go back to Milan. Please note the City of Milan asks for a 5 Euro tax pp and per day!!!
Second time here on business travel, and hotel is as expected. Last time was in a bit over a year ago, late summer or early fall. Not in downtown area, but along with subway line, easy to access, though I used taxi from airport about 16€ and about 15min. Nice typical Italian restaurants nearby, so our crew didn't go to downtown at all. Breakfast ok, nothing special to mention.
For This price you can find way better Hotels. I stayed in this hotel from the 20th until the 22th of October. The air-conditioner in the room works only from 07:00 to 09:00 in the morning and from 19:00 to 21:00 in the evening. The service was far below expectations. The breakfast was a like a nightmare. No Management should manage a Hotel like this; I won’t be surprised to hear that hot water will be given only at these times as well.
I stayed at this hotel for two nights and it’s not to be excited about. A bar not really worth calling a bar, no restaurant, only breakfast restaurant. Bed was hard as hell and room safe was defective reopening it self
We stayed at the Best Western Hotel Major for 2 days in Milan. We were lucky to get parking outside the venue, but you can also arrange a car park behind. The hotel is a bit tired and getting old but the staff were very helpful. The best location was to be able to go out into the centre of Milan and elsewhere on the Metro which is on the corner.
This hotel is next to the metro so was convenient to get around. The room was clean and the bathroom was big (bigger than the room!). This hotel is good to rest your head at night while being out all day.
Very good city hotel for short break in Milan. Immediate locality has very little to offer but the hotel offers quick access to many Milan sights and attractions being right above Lodi metro station. Parking is very limited (and pretty pricey): make sure you book if you need it. Breakfast absolutely brilliant value at €4. Staff really friendly and helpful. Will happily stay again.
