For sure if you want to live for normal price in the heart of Milano, rent a room in this hotel! 10 metres to fabulous DUOMO. The personal in the hotel are super fantastic people, all of them! They were so nice to us and always helped us! Especially big thanks to Jimmy and the philipine/italian lady :) We were... More

Glued to the Duomo Hotel with great cost benefit. Great location, next to the Duomo, metro station, via Torino, v. gallery. emanuelle, among others. Breakfast and good staff. Hotel with elevator and large bathroom.

My wife and I were on our 25th Anniversary and stayed here one night. It is spacious and clean and very reasonable. However, we were disappointed that the Queen Bed was really just two Twin Beds pushed together -- not good. Also, the staff had maybe two friendly people, but we found the night-time staff to be rather short and... More

As me & my wife were attending Salone Del Mobile, we wanted our hotel to be easily accessible. We couldn't have found a better location than Rio as its just 5 mins away from the Duomo Metro Station. Though the hotel does not offer any amenities, it is fairly decent considering one spends most of the time of the day... More

Hotel is in a great area. We arrived and were shoved into a room with a couch bed with a mattress the size of paper. Very uncomfortable. They had forgotten our booking and tried to shove us into a room in the corner. We complained and the ignorant manager claimed to speak no english even though we heard him later... More

Yes it is close to Duomo, yes it is cheap but it comes with a price. We stayed at some amazing places on this trip so we were due for a let down and we knew when we booked it we were not going to get the B&B treatment but come one! Very small rooms right on the street, very... More

This is a standard 3 star city hotel - ok for 1-2 nights, but nothing to remember. It's best feature is its location - it couldn't be more central, just around the corner from Duomo and shopping area, with direct metro connection to the central station. Basic room, new and clean, rather small but good enough, with everything necessary. Bathroom... More

The hotel was just round the corner from the cathedral and a few metres from the metro. Main downside was the noise from trams in the street under our window which seemed to run continuously from early morning to late night. Some of the staff were lovely, others not so. The dining room was small and cramped.

It's located two minute walking from the Dome and metro station. This is its strong point. My room was very very small. But it was ok for one night. The staff was very efficient. Good breakfast in the tiny breakfast room.
