The first thing I would say about this hotel is its excellent location. The Sondrio Metro station is right outside reception, and can take you right into the heart of the city centre in around 10 Minutes. The area around the hotel is not touristy, so is therefore nice and quite. We found a nice Pizza place about a 5 minute walk away which served the firnst authentic Italian Pizza at a very reasonale price. The hotel is also walking ditance from the Central Milan station, although we didn’t take this option.
On arrival, the checkout process was smooth with pleasant greetings from a very helpful attendant. The lobby was clean and stylish. The room was perefct for our needs, spacious, clean and the large picture above the beds added a further touch of glamour. The beds were very comfortable, with plenty of extra pillows and cushions if required. The room also had a large widescreen tv, which came in handyf or watching the Champions League Final. There was a safe; which was free to use and tea/ coffree making facilities. A bottle of complimenatry water was also provided each day.
The bathroom was adequate, and also very spacius. There was no bathtub, although the shower was large and the shower pressure was excellent.
Finally, our stay also included breakfast which was slightly dispointed. The buffet looked better than it was, with a somewhat limited choise of fry up items and the fruit selecion was also minimal. Tea / coffee had to be ordered separately and wasn’t of the quality you would expect from a 4 star hote.
You may also wish to note that there was charge for using the internet via a credit card through the homepage, so we didn’t use it. We were also charged the hotel tax per person / per night on checking out! Overall I would highly recommend this hotel, as the loaction and overall feel of the hotel is top class.
