What a great find! We knew the hotel was pretty central but hadn't realised how close we would be to everywhere. Took the underground from Milan Centrale station and the Metro stop was a 100 yards away. Hotel in a small side street, modern little entrance/reception area. Everywhere was clean, staff were wonderful and really helpful. Rooms are small but... More

I was in Room 325 which was tucked away at the end of the corridor so luckily I did not experience any noise. The hotel is very clean and the decor is modern as I suspect it has been refurbished. Claudio amd Marco were excellent receptionists. Breakfast was good and always served with a smile. Location is excellent. Yes, you... More

I really enjoyed staying here for four nights in June. The location was perfect (although as the hotel is on a very quiet cobbled cut-through street, off main thoroughfares, I felt a little nervous - as a solo female traveller - coming back on foot late at night. All fine however). The room was very nice - great design with... More

We had a great experience staying at the hotel Genius. It is older but clean and updated. Rooms are small but adequate. Breakfast was good with made to order omelets. Received great dinner recommendations from helpful staff. Email communications were also prompt and very accommodating and useful. We recommend this hotel gladly.

Hotel is so clean, the staff is so friendly, the breakfast is so fresh and tasty, location is soo good that i don't want to give negative critics but i have to.. Do not take left side rooms next to the lift!!! Plus the airco. It all made it difficult to sleep.

Service was great, people are very friendly. Everything was really very good, but 9€ a day for wifi and just 2 ipads on reception with no possibility to work with comfort - in the 21st century it is ridiculous!

We stayed here for 3 nights, and found the hotel to be of good quality. The rooms are spotless clean, bathroom was clean and functional. From this point of view I think it deserves 4 stars. Breakfast was just enough, coffee was fabulous way way better than any hotel breakfast coffee I have ever had. The room had just enough... More

We were travelling on a business trip to Milan. We wanted to stay near the city center, and this hotel is well located, near the metro station and close to via Dante, and at a reasonable price. Room is ok and clean, but for a 3 star, there was no fridge, and no bath tub. Breakfast is so-so. And wifi... More

The hotel is located next to a metro station and next to the pedestrian area which leads to the domo. Room is normal size, clean, recently renovated. Although our room was facing the street it was not noisy, as the hotel is on a side road. Breakfast is ok. Coffee is freshly served from a machine. Negative: WiFi is EUR... More
