Very basic and not seen money spent for decades. This hotel is the personification of the word 'basic'. A 30 minute walk from the centre it was hard to find any redeeming feature. Beds narrow, rooms tiny, cupboards flatpacked, shower so small you couldn't stand in it and decor tired and completely outdated. Staff were helpful when pushed but they... More

After arriving at the main Train station we went downstairs to the Metro & had a short trip to Saint Agostino station & from there only a 5-10 minute walk to the hotel. The hotel is in a main road area although our room was not noisy. It is opposite the prison, so was easy to find. There are 2... More

We checked in just fine. Room was clean and decent. Kind of a long cab ride from the train station. But we did walk to Santa Maria De Grazie and Milano Duomo. So it wasn't terribly far away. We didn't encounter too much noise with out stay here.

It may be a little far from the main attractions but there is a meteo station just 2 blocks from the hotel that puts you in the castelo Sforzesco and the metro works until 00:00. The area is not a tourist trap.. in a restaurant just a block from the hotel we pay 8 to 7 euros for main courses..... More

This is a decent hotel, but nothing special. The room decor is entirely beige/mustard, which I found monotonous, but the wood floors were nice and clean without being cold. Mattress had nice firmness but poor air circulation, so it got hot at night. Terrible soundproofing -- I could hear my neighbor's hacking fits and his TV; my TV did not... More

We visited Milan in November and stayed at this hotel for four nights. We travelled via Bergamo Airport to Central Station before taking the Green Line south. It is no longer than 15 minutes by metro to the station at Sant Agostino and then a further 5 minute walk to the hotel. The area is quiet but there are one... More

Booked this hotel after reading some reviews, I wish I had carried on reading and believed them. Hotel is out of town, lifeless, charges for internet (no set prices - just seems to be dependent on what the staff feel like charging. Beds are solid. booked for three nights - got nowhere with complaining about size of room, dirty bathroom,... More

The hotel is near a metro station which puts it in a relatively good location, although it is seven stops from the central station. We stayed for one night only and I would recommend it for short stays as the price is excellent.

This is a great little budget hotel! I stayed in both a single room and in a double during my trip and I could not fault either. The air-conditioning was good, the bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate, the shower was hot and had great pressure. The breakfast too was impressive with croissants, condiments, cereals, bread, ham, cheese, a range of... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
