Yes this hotel is close to the Duomo but that's all it has to offer. Upon arrival we were greeted by a rude Receptionist. The room was smelly,dirty, hole in the door and broken shower screen door. Breakfast was terrible. I don't know how it's even a 3 star? Don't know what rooms other reviewers that have rated it good... More

The hotel is located just a few minutes from the Duomo. Couldn't be closer. The room as you can see from the pictures are not great, but if you will use the hotel just to sleep it is okay. I don't think it would be a good tipe for a romantic trip but worked well as solo for me.

The reception staff are polite, friendly, and are available at the desk 24/7. The room is basic but clean and tidy which didn't faze me as I was only using it... More

So close to all the 'big' Milano sites, as well easy transport to rest of city. Rooms were European small and not luxurious but they served its purpose well. I especially liked that the bathrooms, while not well lit, at least had room to maneuver and place toiletries. Staff was very helpful in getting reservations made for restaurants and other... More
