Nice new rooms, reception and communal areas. Not so nice and not so new bathroom and lift area. Tiny shower with broken shower head also blocked with limescale build up so water only came out of 4 holes. (I fixed this with my wife's sowing kit needles , room109) Staff helpful and coffee at breakfast was superb. Breakfast selection not... More

Good location. Good buffet breakfast. No problems with staff. No free Wi-Fi, they wanted 9 euros to access it. But my room, with white walls, harsh fluorescent lighting and stark decor was like sleeping in a Wal-Mart. Not an inviting place to be in.

The purpose of this stay was a meeting to celebrate a birthday of my wife's best friend. We were there for 2 nights. To be completely honest, after reading many horrible reviews, and then having no control over where the hotel would be booked after my usual extensive Tripadvisor research, I was not happy at all this hotel was chosen....

We loved our stay here - Marco at the desk not only responded promptly to our emails from the U.S. before our trip, he negotiated a fair price and could not have been more helpful (dining tips, printing our boarding passes, getting us a cab to the train station) when we were in Milan. Our room was clean, modern and,... More

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!
