Some of the reviews on here are extremely harsh for this hotel so I will try to give you an honest report on my stay. I stayed with my boyfriend for a short city break from the 26th - 28th March 2013.
Firstly there appears to be a lot of people accusing the reception staff of being rude, I totally disagree, the gentlemen who checked us in was extremely friendly and helpful, he gave us a map and indicated some good sights to see and some local bars to try out. The other 3 reception staff we dealt with were also very pleasant, all of them spoke English too which was very helpful.
We were checked in to room 105 on the first floor, there is a small hall area with a large mirror then you have a door on the right to your bedroom and a door directly ahead to the bathroom. The bathroom was very spacious and clean, shower pressure was lovely and always warm water, the only thing I would say is if you are tall the shower is a bit of a squeeze.
The bedroom was also a very good size, bed was comfortable, nice warm covers, small flat screen TV, desk, chair and a very large wardrobe with a safe inside. The view outside was not good at all but then we didn't pay for one.
There's quite a few people on here that also mention the noise in and outside of the hotel. I won't lie, you can hear the underground tram in the morning (you don't notice it as much at night). Also you will hear people next door to you in their bathroom for example but this is only a problem in the morning and to be honest you're usually awake or getting up for breakfast anyway. If you're going to Milan to stay out all night and sleep in till late afternoon then I wouldn't recommend it but if you're going to get up, ready to explore and make the most of your trip then the small noise problem won't bother you at all.
Breakfast was nice, there's a coffee/tea/hot chocolate machine and cold meats, juices, crossaints etc etc, the dining area was nice and also clean.
In terms of location you would seriously struggle to find a better placed hotel for this sort of price! It's round the corner from the Moscova underground metro station which is on the green line. A 5-10 minute ride on this will send you to the central station where you can catch a tram to anywhere around the city such as the Lotto station for the San Siro or the Duomo for the Cathedral and shopping.
We had a lovely time at this hotel and I would certainly go back, one thing I did notice is that there wasn't many families at the hotel but it's certainly ideal for anybody whether going as a family, a couple or for business!
