I stayed 2 nights - very near metro stop, not cookie-cutter look, clear room, tea-making tray and a mini-bar. The bed was a bit high (high legs), but OK. Wifi without password, but worked OK. My room was on the 1st floor (no elevator), my luggage was brought up, no problem. My only complain - mini-bar was not working when... More

We had made a reservation half a year before arrival, due to quite a good price, and that bad reviews. But, when we arrived we were dissapointed badly. Upon arrival, barely English-speaking receptionist (which you would expect in "3-stars-hotel") told us that we would not have any breafast (for whole stay) and as a refund for 8 breakfast (2pax, 4nights)...

There was no hot water during our entire journey and the staff had no idea when and if it will be fixed. It was really unprofessional of them to not let us know about this issue in advance, since it was clear that they have been knowing about it for a while. Even though they tried finding another room for... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Gala for four nights and were very pleased with the friendly, accommodating staff and a large, very clean room. Breakfasts were very nice; there were fried eggs, a meat, croissants , coffee and apples--a bargain for 4 euros! Also, it is a stone's throw from the Marche metro(this is a new line... More

Nothing positive. The beds is hospital stretchers - high about 70 cm. Your legs hanging. Sleep like on a trampoline. Bathroom is from the time of Leonardo da Vinci - the sink was clogged and the shower is unusable. The cheap is expensive The next day we moved to another hotel, a little more expensive, but with many amenities, where... More

Okay, there are some bad reviews on here but we found it a lot better than people on here suggest. I wouldn't expect the world for the price. The guy on reception didn't speak a word of English and we had a great time with him. The language barrier didn't interrupt a nice evening of wine and beer. Metro station... More

There is so much room for improvement here. The room smelled heavily of mold and the bathroom was very small and also moldy. The bed was woefully uncomfortable and breakfast was poorly stocked. This is all too bad, as the place could be great with a little investment. The location is decent and the room we had was quite big,... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location with the metro right outside, it is a little dated but our room was spotlessly clean and staff were friendly, perfect for a short stay. The room also had a fridge, a television and tea/coffee making facilities.

We stayed one night. One room was dirty with hairs on floor and in bed. What really made us uneasy was the cats running into the kitchen where breakfast was prepared. Obviously we skipped breakfast this time. The location was ok near public transportation so if you do not mind filth it's ok.

Staff was nice, room was clean, metro station in front of the hotel, and a huge Esselunga (great supermarket) close to the hotel. Breakfast very poor and not included (4 euros per person per night). We had it only once. Room was crowded of stuff, not looking like a real hotel. Far from the Milano Centrale station if you have... More
