This is very simple hotel with all basic things you need. Location is very good since it is very close to Duomo. Breakfast is good by European standards and much better than typical American breakfast. While it was quite warm outside, we were told that air conditioning is not available in March. Staff is OK. I would stay in this... More

Walked in, saw the room and booked myself another hotel (lost 3 nights worth of stay). Did not feel safe as there were suspicious people hanging around and in the hotel, room was dark and dated and also major road works going on outside the window (late night). Location is ideal though.

In a nutshell the only real reason to be at this hotel is its location. Less than a minute walk from the Duomo, food options, the Rinascente Mall and the Vittorio Emanuelle Gallery and plenty of other shopping options - accessibility to this hotel is unmatched. The Milan Hop off Hop On bus also stops right in front of the... More

The location, very near the Duomo, is the best thing of the hotel. The hotel is old and rooms need a renew. Breakfast is basic, croissants, cheese, yogurt, but it is ok. You can ask for a cappuccino that is good! The breakfast room is very small, so if you want to leave early, wake up or you will wait... More

For the location and the price I don't think you could get any better in the whole of Milan. Literally 1 minute walk to the Duomo. Rooms were what you expect for a 3 star hot and the bathroom is huge. Wifi is not included which should just be a standard these days. Expensive at 10 euro per device per... More

AMAZING location. the room itself was nice and small with big bathroom. the breakfast was nice too with pastries, coffee and more. the lady that gave us the key wasn't very helpful or ever approchable. our double bed was actually two twin beds (with a gap between them) but the biggest problem we had was that they closed the heating...

I needed a room last minute and found this place adequate. The location can't be beat. Just steps to the Duomo and waking distance to most tourist places. Sure the room was very small but all I needed was a place to stay. The night staff and day staff were both very friendly and helpful. I thought the breakfast was... More

This hotel you can see once you arrive via the metro (to Duomo -city centre). It is literally walking steps from the famous Duomo Cathedral. I stayed a single room, which yes was small but it had everything you need. Breakfast was ham, cheese, cornflakes, biscuits and different types of fresh croissants - I recommend this place as city commuting... More
