“Smoking is no longer fashionable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I wasn't so impressed with my first Best Western experience. Some of the staff were great, some you felt like a huge inconvenience. A good quality breakfast was offset in enjoyment by an apparent lack of segregation of smoking floors. Or even better no smoking floors at all. Probably a lot better value in Milan to be had in all honesty.

Dear Mr.Mark, I aknowledge receipt of your survey and I would like to thank you for that.
The BEST WESTERN Hotel Major has 39 no smoking rooms and 21 smoking rooms and the Managment is strongly thinking to became a 100% no smoking property, so probably in the next 2013.
I will share your survey with all my staff , the guest is always the Welcome !, so with you I can only apologize but I will work to avoid any problem.

Do not hesitate to contact me .
Best regards,
Stefania Marabelli

Our experience about Best Western Major was quite good. The staff spoke in English. My wife requested for an ironing board and immediately got it. There was a business center with 1-2 computers and we were able to print our flight schedule free of charge. The hotel is located just next to the train station and we negotiated the stairs as there was no escalator. But that's the the concern of the hotel, more so the city of Milan. Breakfast is typically North American. This is an ease as we do not have to go around in the morning looking for a place to eat. The hotel is a easy access to the buses that go to the airport. The room we stayed in was small which is typical of European hotels we had in the past. The aircon is not cool enough but the weather was also very hot. We had a small bathroom and the shower / tub, also small. Overall, if you're looking for a good priced hotel, this is the place but also far from the airport. We were charged 94 EUR / night.

Room Tip: pre-check the airconditioning first. make sure it works well. if you're not staying at the hotel...

I stayed here with my partner at the start of March 2012, we booked a jacuzzi room through booking.com and got reasonable rates compared to other hotels in central Milan. Location-wise it's great as the neighbourhood is nice, you are 10 seconds from the metro with direct access to the centre (takes about 5 minutes to the Duomo) and there are buses and tram stops right outside. The room was quiet and pleasant and breakfast was ok - your standard European buffet fare, but with the added benefit of a few gluten free items (great for me as I'm on a restricted diet). Around the corner from the hotel is an organic supermarket, which was handy for snacks and drinks.

Stayed there for about 6 nights for a conference nearby (the hotel is on the list of hotels with free transport to my conference site).Small clean room ,nice bathroom.Breakfast spread was good.Front desk guys spoke good English and helpful( Metro tickets available here).
As it was summer , enjoyed cheap cherries bought from nearby IperCoop ! Also pleasantly surprised with 2 nearby Chinese restaurants with reasonable price.
Everything was OK except at the time of check-out , was told that we had consumed food items from the room minibar , which we denied ! After some checking , we were told it's OK ; the person-in-charge had made a mistake ! That left a bitter taste indeed.........

This Best Western is very closed to the subway station of Piazzale Lodi that grants an easy access to dowtown. The hotel is clean and quiet, the rooms are well fitted, a little too hot. Breakfast is correct, with some things for people on diet (very rare!). The personnel is gentle, even not so warm... the hotel has no restaurant, but there are some places to eat in the vicinity.
Special fare for some events.
