The hotel is on a busy street that has old trolleys. They make a lot of noise at all hours of the day and night. If you are a light sleeper you will have a bad time. The staff was not helpful. When I was checking in I was having trouble getting my suitcase up the stairs, the bell boy... More

Never having been to Milan, I was lucky enough to find this hotel online. In a city as diverse as Milan, it was heaven to return here every night. The hotel is all you could ask for, beautiful architecture, quaint rooms, friendly staff. I especially liked that you hand in your key when you leave, and pick it up on... More

Ask for a courtyard view as street facing rooms have tram noise. Friendly staff, Fatma at breakfast had our cappucinos ready just after we sat down. Amazing buffet style breakfast... More

This hotel is situated within about 3kms from the centre of Milan and walking to the Duomo cathedral is a great walking outing with a few sites along the way. Breakfast is great and you can sit in the courtyard. The staff were helpful and courteous.

Very nice hotel at a great location. The breakfast was wonderful and better than most places. The beds were hard but you could request a diffe t pillow, which I did t know until my last day. That would have made a difference. Bathroom was good sized but tiny Italian corner shower. Would stay here again.
