I stayed in this hotel for nearly 2 months in Jan-Feb 2015. It nicely located close to the offices of Eni so you can walk every morning and you don't need the car or taxi. My room was on the first floor in the area above the restaurant and the external pub. The room was single bed and very small.... More

The hotel was ok but the airconditioning was off so i had to check out to the Crown Plaza. The staff were very friendly and the room was cosy and comfortable. The rates were also reasonable and the location convenient for the offices I visited.

The friendliness of the staff may make up for any shortcomings someone could find, although i personally believe this hotel is more than adequate and a valid alternative to the nearby Crowne Plaza. Clean, it offer what is supposed to deliver: a business stay.

We had to find a hotel for the Milan Design Fair and naturally most places were full or crazy expensive. Landing at Linate, we wanted a hotel nearby and chose Santa Barbara. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, spoke good English, and made us feel very welcome. It is mainly a business hotel. The room was at the back,... More

I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of March. Its a nice business hotel ideal for anyone on trip to San Donato. The room I had was nice, very clean and in good repair - No complaints. I cant comment on the food as I didn't eat at the hotel. Worthy of a special mention is how helpful... More

We spent a few nights at this hotel and whilst it is out from central Milan, the subway is nearby and within 15 mins you are at the Domo. It was quieter so a great location, mainly a business hotel but still vey good for travellers. The staff were fantastic - very helpful, friendly with good advice - and the... More

This was the first time I stayed at the Santa Barbara - I usually stay at the Crowne Plaza. I found the room excellent, clean, quiet and spacious (this was a double room which had a bedroom and a lounge). The room was somewhat warm but that was most likely due to the heavy curtains. The styling was well-appointed "vintage"... More

My room was boiling hot, upon enquiring why the aircon was not working, I was told that in winter (21C today???) the aircon is switched off and that I had to open my window. One small problem my room is above a bar/restaurant, thus the noice and smell of old cooking oil was not welcome. Thus I ask to cancell... More

Dear Nr Neil W., thank-you for taking the time to share your feed-back on tripadvisor.

Regarding your complaint, I'd like to make few clarification: The weather in Milan during this end of October was absolutely unexpected. Ten days ago... More
