The Hotel was just across the main street when you walk outside the front of the main station building. (Not the side exits) We got the room on the 7th floor and have access to the terrace. The bed was large and therefore there was very little space to walk around the room. The bathroom was nice and clean and... More

The Hotel has very poor bathrooms, no shower curtains, poor drainage and hence the whole bath is flooded. The staff is very rude and behave as if they are doing a favor on us. Internet is NOT free - it is Euro 7 per day per device - so if a family stays then be prepared to be ripped off.... More

Can't understand all the bad reviews as hotel is great location, clean and tidy! U get what u pay for and I got more than I expected! Rooms are modern and clean, supermarket across road and central station only a few mins walk!! Plenty of nearby places for food and drinks!

I stayed at this hotel just one night to catch the early transfer to Linate. The location is perfect, right outside the train station and a stone's throw away from the transfer to the airport. Rooms are ok and bathroom clean. Recommended when you need to be close to the station.

All I needed for my short business trip was a good location close to the Central station, a bed and a shower. I got all these at Idea Hotel, for a good price. Unfortunately the Internet connection is poor (but you pay quite a price for it). Due to demolishing works in the neighbourhood there is a lot of noise... More

The room was clean and comfortable. The reception staff were helpful and the room was serviced. However on our first morning, as the dining room opened at 6.30am and we wanted to be at our tour meeting place at 7am we only had 15 minutes for our included breakfast. We were not offered a breakfast box so we thought we... More

Our room smelled disgusting. Moldy, peeling walls. It was disgusting, and probably dangerous. When I asked to switch rooms, the extremely rude receptionist was condescending and refused to switch our room or cancel and refund, even partial, payment. She insisted that I was lying and that the room smelled fine. I couldn't believe she said this because it was a... More

Great location steps away from Central Station. Modern looking hotel. Excellent price. Good breakfast (for the price). Although the price was good, the reception was EXTREMELY ARROGANT. Most of them were arrogant but a rude woman named URSULA was the worst I've ever seen in my many travels throughout Italy. She doesn't deserve a job even as a housekeeper. (with... More
