First off let's start with the location: it is a bit on the outside of the city near an industrial zone but very calm! Which is great because you are not far at all from the city (by public transportation or car) without the problems of parking people have inside Milano.
I came by car so this was perfect for me. If you have no car the hotel offers free shuttle to the nearby metro station (I will detail).
Ok the hotel now: inside you will get welcomed at the gate (secured access) by the very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is nicely decorated. Getting inside my room I really appreciated the big bed, big shower (almost three people could fit in!). It was sincerly more than I would expect. Another great thing: I saw another door in my door leading to a private parking space for my car right outside of my room. This is really nice especially if you want to load/unload your luggage.
Included you get an internet access (Wi-Fi) which is of good quality.
I had dinner at the hotel's restaurant (they have a bar as well). It has a decent choice of dishes and the cheerful chef is meticulous. The veal cutlet was good but I did not have time to test other dishes as I had to go to Milan downtown most of the time.
Now around you: get out of the hotel by foot, on your right there is a supermarket about 50m!
If your room's electrical wall socket does not fit your device's requirement: Leroy Merlin is not far. It is in Corsico maybe 10mn from the hotel by car.
To get to Milano downtown by far the easiest way is to get dropped by the hotel's free shuttle (I have not tried that) to the closest metro station which is Bisceglie (several buses also serve this station, free network plan available from the city).
I used to drive to the station Inganni and park (for free) in the streets (Inganni's neighbor is safer than Bisceglie and you can park in the shade). Then from Inganni you will get to Duomo in about 15mn.
Of course you will need to get a ticket. The rates are rather cheap and the network very good. For 1€ you get a 90minutes ticket. Or if planning to move a lot you can take 24 or 48 hours ticket which are not very expensive. Rates and vendors are available at atm.it (Milano's public transportation website, available in both Italian and English).
Now for the breakfast: you get almost everything you can wish for. Great coffee/capuccino/latte etc... Pâté, croissant (filled with marmelade, chocolate paste, nothing etc...). Fresh orange juice (chuck some oranges inside the machine it will do the job).
Oh yes: another things to get the electricity working you will need to stick your room's magnetic card inside one of the red lighted slots near either of your room's doors. The card acts as a circuit breaker. Also the AC is not noisy which is good. If you have too much sun hitting your room you also have outside a mechanized curtain (commands right on the outside of your room).
In conclusion this is a really nice hotel, great staff (really everyone, even the cleaning lady was nice and joyful), great prices. The kind of hotel you come back to and feel like home! My only regret is the matress too hard for me (but it is a matter of preferences not related to the hotel).
You can book there without fear!
