Visited Milan in July and the heat was unbelievable! Luckily, this Ibis is located literally only a 7 minute walk from the central train station (a bit tricky to find as it is not directly on the street but still relatively easy). It's also a very convenient location steps away from the subway and suburban trains. Not a fancy neighbourhood... More

My wife and I stayed here as an overnight stop on 25th June while passing through Milan by train. The hotel is very convenient for Milan Central train station – less than 5 minutes walk even with luggage. Pleasant air-conditioned room with large double bed and satisfactory breakfast. The only disappointment was the very dim lighting in the bathroom –... More

Amazing experience. Rooms were really good and staff was very friendly. Spent three nights there and received great service. Did not have food there, so cannot comment on that really. But overall a very nice stay for family as well as couples

Scuffed walls, isolated. Would not stay here again. Everything is closed on Sundays. The start cleaning at about 7am and do not respect 'Do not Disturb' sign . Breakfast good, but not good coffee. I would not stay here again.

Went for a trip in Europe across 5 countries and 12 cities, checked in over 13 hotels during the time and this hotel got the worst customer service. The location was probably the best selling point as it was close to the train station.

I have stayed previously at Idea Hotel at Malpensa and have found it value for money so I decided to stay at Milan Central thinking it would be similar. Unfortunately it left much to be desired. Apart from the cold bare white walls (think hospital rooms), there seem to be a chronic problem in the bathrooms. The health faucets let... More

As a group we were separated to 3 different floors, check in took ages and then the swipe cards didn't work. Room was clean however staff could have been a little friendlier and more helpful. Hotel is close to cafés and train station

Our group of six stayed here for one night. We had three king rooms and a single room. The king rooms were a good size with reasonable bathrooms. The single was very small with a petite bathroom, just good for one person. Decor is reasonably modern. Breakfast is included and there is the usual continental range of foods as well... More

Staying in Stazione Centrale

Neighborhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
