I booked a 1 night stay in Milan, 1 night stay in Pisa, and a 3 night stay in Florence for the beginning of my trip to Italy. Due to a flight cancellation, my trip wound up delayed 3 days which wiped out my hotel stay in Milan and Pisa, and reduced my stay in Florence to 2 days. Since... More

I'm not sure what the issue is with finding the hotel, satnav found it just fine. I concede that it's not a hotel where you step outside the entrance and into the bustling streets of Milan so if that's all you're looking for, pay a much higher price in Milan and forget the car! We wanted to visit some other... More

Clean and big rooms, comfortable but avarage and maybe little bit overpriced for 3 star. Wifi signal was good and you can parking free. Breakfast was so good and enough. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very quiet hotel, we not really met any guests. The biggest problem is that the Hotel is very far from the City center.Another problem if... More

I expended one night in this hotel in the context of a scientific meeting at San Raffaele Scientific Institute. The hotel is perfectly located within the hospital area and 10-15 minutes away from Linate Airport, which was extremely convenient. Clean and comfortable room, with one queen size bed and a small corner to work. This is a good hotel for... More

• easily accessed by car; a bit cumbersome by public transit (situated 40 minutes from downtown) • room was clean • room was a little cramped, but it's a hotel room for sleeping, not a dance studio • bed was firm and comfortable (we slept very well which is what counts) • window opens onto a very busy highway; however,...

We arrived at Milan during Milan design week which left us not many choices. The B&Bs were either fully booked or unreasonably expensive. At last we managed to book Rafael through a travel agency at 125euro per night breakfast excluded. The location is quite tricky. On hotel's website, they said there's shuttle between hotel and metro station, never mentioned where... More

It is located in a “Hospital city”. The breakfast is excellent and the rooms are clean and neat. We booked a “junior suite” with a small sitting room and nice size bedroom with a big walk in closet. It is not a hotel for tourists; probably most of the visitors are there because of hospital related business and the staff... More

Clean, comfortable and excellent service from the staff. This is ideally situated for those visiting the Milano Due area and the Medical School; possibly a little far out for tourists, though it is only a 2 minute bus ride to the metro station and then the metro takes you into the centre in about 15 mins.
