Hotel Valganna

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is located a good distance from the centre of Milan in an area that appears unsafe. The hotel is in need of a complete modernisation the rooms are clean but dated. Wi-Fi is not always easy to get and the TV in the rooms are small. Breakfast again is disappointing with no hot food on offer and Luke warm Tea/Coffee

We booked this hotel via Hotwire, so we had no idea what we're getting. We've only been here for several hours now, however, I cannot stress this enough - this is by far the worst hotel my wife and I have ever seen. Yes, it's 10 minutes from the center with the train, but the neighborhood is intimidating and not a one you'd like to explore not to mention walk at night back to the room. The hotel is old, smells of and full of dust. Our room was on a terrace, which had broken chairs and a nasty table. The vases just had thorns growing as if they haven't gotten any water for a long time. Our room was tiny and full of dust and dead bugs. We had to leave the door opened for like an hour so the bad smell will disappear and it will be feasible to sit in the room. When we left the hotel for the first time they actually made us leave the key to the room in the reception claiming it was a safety measure. However, when we came back and asked from the other guy in the reception, whom we never met before, the key to our room, he just handed it over no questions asked, so I call BS. Air conditioning can't be controlled from the room and one has to call the unpleasant (quite stoned I'd say) guy in the reception so he'll turn it on remotely. Do yourself a big favor and book somewhere else.

Not particularly helpful or friendly staff, nothing worked properly including the air co and shower. In fact we couldn't get any hot water for shower or washing in the morning. We reported it and the guy just shrugged and said he'd report it! Never mind about our inconvenience. Breakfast was ok though the fresh fruit was disappointing; consisting of an apple or tinned pineapple! No toast, it was a fuss to get tea or coffee and there was inadequate seating for guests. Apart from that, we had a marvellous time!!!!!

Valganna staff was extremely non cooperative and rude. I am an India and I was being judged for that. They'd call us by wrong names. We were a group of students who stayed in that hell for 25 days. There services were really bad. An incidence which happened with my friend. She just took the tea bag from the buffet area and sat in hotel lobby with her cup of tea. Now in india tea bags, milk and all of these daily items you get for free. Inspite of politely telling us that we need to pay for it. The hotel staff started calling her a thief and started judging us on the basis of our race. Now this incidence happened in front of that hotel staff. I would never go back to Valganna!!

The staff wasn't very enthusiast, and the room was bad quality with a lot of noise. The price is expensive for the service given. Well located for the people who are going to Politecnico di Milano Bovisa, but not recomended for any reason.

In this price can get a batter hotel for sure. We spend total 8 nights. Room is very old an even room is very dusty. In our toilet some times we are getting hot water. I will not recommend this hotel. Internet is very slow. Matters need to change. I said the toilet there is a bad smell always. Need to improve every thing. Well the location is good but I will not choose this hotel for second time.

I picked this hotel because it was right by the train station and close to my daughter's appartment. I paid $59.00 dollars plus tax including breakfast for two. The hotel is clean with no hidden bells and whistles, free wifi. You walk around the block to the train station, three stops and you are in the middle of Milano.

After having read previous reviews we have been very worried on what we would find but none of the fears came true. The room was warm and so was the bathroom. It was super clean, the ladies who cleaned it were leaving it very tidy every morning. The staff was polite and very willing to help with everything we asked. The room had access to a little terrace which was very convenient for smoking while having a morning coffee. The coffee itself was terrible though. Easy access from Bovisa polytecniko (3min walk ) train station, urban ticket costs 1,50€ while the day one 4,50€. Overall the hotel was as it should be a 3 star hotel. Don't expect the service and luxury of a five star. We rate it excellent keeping that in mind.

Hotel Valganna I found quite by accident. I wanted a hotel close to the train station so I could help my daughter find a better route to school via the train. Hotel Valganna right across the street from the train station, Only 56 dollars a day that included morning breakfast for 2. The hotel has no room service or bell hops. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean. Did I mention Breakfast is included.

The hotel is just 3-4 minutes walk from the Bovisa Politecnico train station that is connected to Milan Central (just 15 minutes train journey) & just 25 minutes from Malpensa Airport. The hotel building looks a letdown from outside but hotel is good from inside. Nothing special but very clean. The room was small in size but again very clean. The tv has no English channel. All staff very efficient. Special mention to a waitress (cant remember her name) at breakfast who was very friendly & took care of our 1 year old baby. Overall good value for money. Would stay again there.Stayed Mid August for 4 nights.
