The hotel is within walking distance to train station and restaurants. Rooms and common areas are really nicely refurbished to give it a modern feel. Loved our balcony and a generous sized shower, biggest shower on the trip. Breakfast was really great with a selection of hot and cold food. Great find.

A wonderful, friendly hotel. Rooms are sparkling clean and have new bathrooms. Best breakfast you can imagine, including the home made pan cakes! Happy to give directions and to recommend places to shop and eat. They have a small lift and that helps when you have heavy luggage. The hotel is in the University area of Milano and within walking... More

The hotel is pretty close to Loretto metro station, very clean and modern. The breakfast is really good with wide selection of cold and hot food. This was the only hotel in Italy that we had access to the air conditioner remote!! Connecting to the wifi for the first time was problematic as it didn't happen in the room and... More

The hotel is quite close to subway station, and only a few steps away from the major stations. The breakfast had a pretty good selection, the coffee was fantastic, they made it for us when we ordered, instead of us just pressing a button on a coffee machine. Despite the hotel's website says that they have air conditioning, but we... More

Perfect place. Close to train station, metro, and walking distance to Duomo. Breakfast was the best we had in three weeks in France and Italy. Rooms were adequate and price was good for location. Staff was helpful.

The rooms were big enough and always tidy, beds very comfortable, wifi signal is very good, and the breakfast is fantastic. They always have a cake served at the end of the... More

Big rooms, air conditioned, comfy bed (6'5" and loving it). Biggest shower we have seen on the trip. Superb location, 15 min from Centrale Train Station. Friendly and helpful staff. A Lift. We cannot speak highly enough of this hotel, and its amenities.
