The hotel is clean, good breakfast and friendly staff. The best thing about the Genius Hotel is that it is located in a quiet street and it is walking distance to major historic attractions. What I found ridiculous is that if you want to use wi-five, you have to pay 9 Euros, and the it doesn't work that well; it... More

I had a great experience at this hotel. This hotel was centrally located two blocks from the train station that takes you to the airport (Malpensa express). The hotel is on a side street so it is pretty quiet at night. The staff there are very helpful and pleasant. They will help book you on a tour and help print... More

We chose this hotel because it was halfway between the Last Summer and the Duomo, the 2 attractions we had come to see during our short stay in Milan. It was also within walking distance to the Cadorna train station, which has a shuttle to Malpensa so it was the perfect location for us. The rooms are modern and small,... More

Clean and comfortable two minutes walk from the closest subway station or 7 minutes walk from Carduso station. These cost 1 euro 50 from the central station. The castle is literally just around the corner. It is about 10 minutes stroll to the duomo. That is a must see. Breakfast buffet is of a decent standard. Ask for specialty coffee... More

This hotel is located in a side street in the heart of the urban centre, with less than a 5 minute walk to the Duomo. The room has modern decor with s comfortable bed yet it really is a no frills hotel - no bar fridge no tea/coffee facilities in the room and the shower faces the toilet (not good... More

This is a great little hotel, was greeted by a gentleman on arrival, please forgive my spelling but I think his name is claud. whilst I was checking in I realised I had left my iPhone in the taxi, he was so helpful and courteous. I can't thank him enough. My first time in Italy and he really made me... More

Hotel Genius is a nice, clean hotel situated in between the Castello Sforesco and the Duomo. The room was clean, modern and quiet. The breakfast available was very good. There is a fabulous restaurant at the end of the street (exit hotel, turn left) where the people were friendly and the food was great. You're also close to metro, Malplensa... More
