Like many travelers, our party of four chose this hotel for its proximity to the Milano Centrale train station. We weren't sure how seedy the station area would be, so we figured a chain hotel was preferable. Turns out the area is not seedy -- and so we wish we had chosen a less expensive hotel. The area abounds in them.
That said, Starhotels Echo was a quiet and comfortable place to recover from jet-lag after a red-eye flight from EWR. We'd hoped to check in early, but that wasn't possible.
Yes, rooms are on the small side. The lighting was confusing -- it's one of those systems where you have to stick your room key into a slot, but one light in the bathroom refused to shut off. Our friends asked for two separate beds -- this was specified in the written booking we'd made six months prior -- but the room wasn't made up that way. It took two hours for housekeeping to show up to do that.
Breakfast was top-notch, and the lobby with its "green" photo murals is just lovely. Staff was helpful, too.
