I stayed in this hotel on February. The location is optimal, it's in a narrow street but as soon as you come out you're in the heart of the city. The breakfast and cleanliness were very good. The only thing that bothered me was that the hearing was terrible I was freezing all night! Apart from that this is a... More

The hotel is very well located, in the center and on a quit street. Many attractions are within walking distance: Sforzesco Castle, Piazza del Duomo, Scalla Theatre, famous shopping places. Good breakfast and the rooms were large and clean.

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
