“Right on top of a subway station”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Being right next to a subway station is really convenient getting around and that's what counts when in a city and you are on a sightseeing trip. If you want a room with a view, this is not the place for it. Rooms are a bit small, like in any other Italian hotel. The shower is a cubicle where you hit your elbows on the side walls if you move. Breakfast is ok, the breakfast lady doesn't care, eggs etc are all cold and she bangs dishes so loudly, you feel it is time to get on with your breakfast and move on, maybe that's her intention so she can go home. The garages are so tiny that if you have a SUV it wont fit in the tiny hole. Good enough for a 3 night stay and 3 nights are enough to explore around Milan.

Dear RT, thank you very much for your review regarding you stay in Milan at the BEST WESTERN Hotel Major of Milan.
The view unfornunately is not the best in Milan!I will work to solve the point you noted at the breakfast room and if you would like to contact me for better explain the situation this it will help me to understand better the person in charge.
Tha garages are not so big, but if you book and communicate the car you are driving to we have a different solution at our property , and also a pick up services with a private garage in the area.

Do not hesitate to contact me.

It is in a convenient location right at the metro station making it any easy commute into town. I didn't get out much because I was there wasn't many tourist things I saw in the immediate vicinity. Internet was free, bed was hard, staff polite enough and a generally lack luster breakfast. If you are a 'larger' person the toilet was squashed in between the shower and the wall so tightly there was no room for the toilet paper so it positioned in an unconventional location but here is plenty of room if you prefer to use the bidet. There is a nice supermarket 300M down the road if you need to stock up on anything i.e. cheese or salami while you are in Italy.

A standard 4 star hotel. Small room, but comfortable, nice bathroom, good bed and good shower. Good breakfast also... Best things: free wi fi and just besides lodi subway station. Good location also, 3 stations from the duomo, nice neighborhood, restaurants, banks and delis nearby...

The hotel is not too frilling as to the rooms and the breakfast, but the location is really an advantage. You are close to the a main bus stop and you have access to some supermarkets. We have had no issues with the hotel, the service was standard. I just advise to check your bill, since in our case several mini bar positions all of a sudden appeared on the bill. They were of course after discussion removed. Overall, go for this place if you have a short stay. A longer stay might be better met by another more comfortable place.

Dear Upintotheair, I woukld like to thank you for the recent survey regarding you stay.
I would like to apologize for the mistake regarding the minibar, we charged your room instead of another one and believe me this is the only reason you found on your bill this charge.
Do not hesitate to contact me to explain more about room and breakfast or for any other question.

I have a soft spot for Best western Hotels, and for a reason: the rooms are very good value, they always pay attention to little details and the breakfast buffet is always really good!
This hotel has also the bonus of being right next to the metro station! In a few stops you're in the heart of the action but you still have a kind of more relaxed area around the hotel with bakeries, restaurants, bars and a big supermarket.
Free internet is a bit fiddly, as you need a new code every day... But the staff is very friendly and helpful, they even give away umbrellas in case of unexpected torrential rain on your way to the airport!

Nice accommodating staff, we had a standard room and it was perfect. Comfortable beds, air conditioning worked well to cool the room down - which we definitely needed! Had an issue with the light in the bathroom and they came up to fix it almost straight away. Great shower pressure. Good, tasty breakfast range. And very close to the metro. Perfect location.

Exellent location - metro station is really 30 sec from the hotel and 4 stops from/to Duomo (historical city centre). Coop supermarket is just 5 min on foot. Breakfast is very good - quite big choise for european hotels (variety of muesli, scrambled eggs and becon, procuitto, cheese, including brie cheese, sausages, fruit coctail, pastry and juices). You won`t be hungry. Coffee maker in the lobby at your service. Free wi-fi in rooms. Our room had enough space and was comfortable. You can have tea maker set (including tea, coffe,sugar, cookies in your room free of charge).
