I've been stayed here with my family for the weekend. The hotel has very comfortable little apartments with a bedroom, a living room, a large bathroom and a kitchen. Accessories in the kitchen are less then minimal therefore the kitchen my be used just for warming food. The overall hotel is clean and well managed. The staff is nice and... More

I recently visited Milan on a week long business trip and stayed at the Hotel. The property has a good value for money in terms of proximity to new and upcoming location in Milan and also cleanliness and space in the room. However, for a business traveler there is much to be desired in service. I needed an Iron in... More

I loved this place! It's very close to Garibaldi train station was very easy to find and easy walking distance. The first room I was sent to smelled horribly of smoke, even though it's a non-smoking room. I went back to the front desk and requested a new room. The gentleman was very nice and asked if I would mind... More

I've stayed at the Residence a lot this year, because my company has a deal and I really like the location, except that when I first stayed there the trams were not operating. Now they are and if you are a light sleeper you'll have a problem staying asleep after about 5.30am because the trams are loud and run right... More

Stay at this hotel if you want to relive what it must have been like to live in an industrial city in the 1940's. The rooms are cave-like, dark and damp; with lighting that is reminiscent of pre-electricity, gas lighting. Very, very dim with some parts of the room so dark that one cannot read a food label when standing... More

Great hotel for a great price in one of the best parts of Milan, Garibaldi area . Close enough to everything, but still away from all the touristy traps! Enjoy a glass of wine and some mezze at one of the many local bars and make sure to visit Pizzeria di Garibaldi!

This hotel is brilliant in its location right next to the happening area of Milan, Corso Como. The hotel is spacious and rooms are okay. It's just the type of a basic hotel: reception, room and breakfast. Lobby is nice though. Good if you're not seeking a fancy stay.

I stayed with this hotel because of the train station location. Basic room, pretty old! Wifi have to pay. If you like to hang around for nightlife this should be a good place. Since it is next to the pub street! FrontDesk services sucks! I could say no services at all. Last, don't except too much from Breakfast! It can... More

A decent hotel if you have an early start from the Porta Garibaldi railway station. Don't be put off by looks if what you need is a good nights sleep in a decent bed in a place close to the station or a meeting. The rail station is a few hundred yards away and an easy walk, even with a... More

The ATA The BIG Residence has a rather odd name which most taxi drivers don’t know, but when you do find it, the rooms and the location are great. This part of Milan has undergone a transformation over the past few years and now Porta Nuova Garibaldi is taking shape as a chic hub for design, fashion and night life.... More
