We are couple 50+ Our experience of the hotel was not so good 4 stars ?!?! No way ! the room is with old furniture . In our room we had not WIFI !!!! the hotel in good centered location,BUT very close to via TORINO loud one !!!!
the hotel located in the center of milano, its few minutes by walking from duomo . the street is full of stores and some cafes. its more 3 stars hotel . the breakfast is average . the rooms are fain, some have balcony and street view .the safe box sometimes doesnt work . I have mention the stuff is very helpul, and especially Receptionist who name is MARCO , this guy helpes us so many about everything and he do it so quickly and well- real professional .
Arriving in Milan we bought a 42 hour travel ticket and we were able to exit at San Ambrogio, visit the Church and walk easily to our hotel. There were tram links just across the road to any area required. The hotel, as others have mentioned, may be 'dated' but very quaint and unique. The reception desk was lovely and all staff so very pleasant. There was no problem borrowing a charger which we had forgotten.In the morning we sat in the lovely little outdoor area to drink our coffee. Our room was spotless and although not modern very comfortable. The shower was very powerful and really enjoyed my bath after a long day travelling. Lovely stay.
My friend & I needed a centrally located hotel with a good rate for 2 nights. The Concierge was excellent and had a map for us, recommendations for restaurants to try and which ones to avoid, called cabs for us and even let us borrow his umbrella. It is an older hotel that could use some updating. However, the room was fine. It got warm at night and we slept with the window open. We asked for extra towels and they were knocking on our door to deliver within 5 minutes. Unfortunately there is a bar and/or apartments near by up the street and the people were outside and very loud, until all hours. We felt really good about the location and value otherwise. Full bar. Coffee & pastries for room service. Cocktails every evening with chips, nuts, etc.... 10 minute walk to Duomo. Excellent shopping and food everywhere. 15 min cab to the Main Train Terminal.
I was a bit skeptical upon arriving at the hotel by cab because it is in a side street. However, once inside you won’t be disappointed. It isn’t a four star hotel so if that’s what you’re looking for, you won’t be happy. The service is spectacular, the location is awesome and I was able to walk around without any safety concerns as a single female, traveling alone around midnight. The WiFi is sketchy but they tell you that upon entry. I am happy with my choice especially given the cost and accessibilty to shopping, the Duomo, the metro and central station is a cool 15 minutes away by metro.
I stay in hotels twice a week on business, and our company uses TripActions, so we get rewarded for choosing less expensive hotels. This can lead to some interesting outcomes. This time it worked out great! Hotel Carrobbio is a well presented hotel, with clean, well appointed rooms and very attentive, smiling staff. I think most of the custom is from tourists, but I was really pleased with the experience as a business traveller, especially the location in the old district. Oh - and they have an adorable American Cocker Spaniel who sits quietly outside the reception office, checking everything is in order.
Do not stay in this hotel, especially folks from US as you will be more shocked. Furniture is horrible, very old built inside the walls:)). Our bed is like 2 big boxes put together. Bathroom is too dated. Lights of the room go out very often. You have to go to reception to let then know as the the phone is out and there is no way you can contact them. No wifi. Imagine a motel in the suburbs of Texas. That's what it is.
BIG WARNING TO TRAVELLERS Wouldn't recommend this place, unless you only want somewhere to store your luggage. We stayed our last two nights in Italy and they were by far the worst nights we have had anywhere ever. We stayed on the 4 th floor with no air conditioning suffered through one night and was told some story the aircon was getting fixed the following day. The following day came no aircon working still so we asked for another room or refund they offered another room so we packed everything up moved to floor 3 to find this room was a tiny bit cooler but still no aircon working and wasn't possible to open window because there was a hostel opposite the room that was playing music and drinking on there balcony at 4 In the afternoon so we had no option but to go back to the original room which we thought would give us some chance to sleep. They tried to tell us more lies to try and cover them about not giving a refund and said if we would like to go to another accommodation that would be fine with them, yet they weren't going to organise and pay for it. Please don't book HERE pay more money for somewhere with aircon that works and maybe a working shower. I forgot to mention we couldn't open the window in the original room because it was above there courtyard where the smokers sat so the only cool fresh air was smoke, it might be ok if your a smoker . I also recommend packing some duct tape to do a diy fix for the shower head enjoy the photos
We arrived to be greeted by the most professional, personable and attentive staff. The hotel is an older renovated property, which I am fine with. After checking in you have to go up and down a maze of narrow marble stairs to find the tiny, slow elevator. We got to our room, which was dated and in need of touch up in every sense. The beds were like slabs of wood, the pillows were made out of the same tree. The free Wi-fi was spotty at best. We had no connection truly about 70% of the time. So if you are working on any communication that matters.... don't! The room was on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the side street and Hostel. Again, it didn't bother me until the youth decides to start whooping it up late at night. I thought being made out of marble, this place is built like a fortress. Not so fast...... we heard the garbage trucks at 5:45 am emptying the recyclables out of every container up and down this side street. So for about 30 minutes the sounds of clanging glass being dumped into the trucks was what we had as a reminder it was time to get up. The walls were paper thin. The next morning there was a person across the hall at 6 am tossing their dinner, yep taking very loudly. It sounded as if he/she were in our own bathroom. Shortly there after, there was the most loud yawning we have ever heard. It was comical. I told my bride I felt like I was at the zoo watching the lions yawn. They did have a decent, not the best breakfast buffet. Again, service was the crown jewel at this place.
We stop here on the last night of our Italy trip. Rooms was generous in size, the staff were attentive and the location was terrific. On the flip side, the room was very dated, the trams pass right outside through the night and they are loud, and despite not opening the windows into he room and keeping the Aircon on, we killed three mosquitos in our room and I still woke up with 5 bites.
