We spent two enjoyable nights at this hotel. There is a good free car park on the premises so we left our car here and it was safe. It is not a good idea to leave your car on the street alongside the hotel. On Wednesday morning the all cars there were removed to make space for a big market.
The hotel is massive and busy, yet once in our room, we felt comfortable and relaxed. The balcony was huge (much bigger that the room itself). However, there were no chairs or table, and we didn’t use it. In terms of structural design I thought that such a massive terrace was a mistake.
The breakfast was very good and comprehensive. The coffee was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful although they were always busy (particularly at the reception).
The room air conditioner has been switched off despite the fact that the weather was pretty warm for the end of October. When we complained about this, we were advised to open the window (!) Unfortunately, there was no small window which we could leave open all night. That was the only drawback for me.
The hotel is well located for the exploration of Milan. The underground (Metro) is literally a five minute walk away. The Red line takes you straight to the Milano centre (and the Duomo). A standard ticket costs 1.50 Euro for a 90 minute journey. Also, on the street where the Metro station is, there are some little shops, cafes, and restaurants.
I would stay again here if I went back to Milan.
