We stated only one night in this hotel and were pleased with the location ( quite central ) and managed to do some sightseeing in a few hours and catch our train easily the next day. The breakfast was also very good. We were not pleased with the internet. It was 9 euros - I can let that go -... More

Great value for money and right in the heart of old town Milan. It's clean with friendly staff though the rooms (at least 221) can be tiny and the walls are badly soundproof. You will hear every sound from the neighboring room. Not the most comfy beds either.

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
