“Perfect location, fully functional but outdated rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

You couldn't find a better location at this price range. Perfect proximity to the Duomo et al and the metro if you plan on going further out of the city center. Rooms are clean, have everything you'd need as long as you get over the original shock of the 70's wall colour! We'd def stay here again, breakfast is hearty and staff are friendly.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Stayed here 2 nights with a friend in March 2012. The hotel strokes me as a little old decor, but not run down at all. Our room was a bit dark, but we could just have been unlucky. Breakfast was very good, which plenty of choices. Staff was friendly and helpful, however with a bit of Italian arrogance. Wi-fi was not reliable.
The location is superb if you to explore the sights in central Milano. If you are on look for a late night drinks in the area, will you be disappointed. Most of the places around closed at 23. We got a great offer on our stay, but had we paid full price, the value would not have been worth the money.

We stayed here for a week on business and were very pleased with our choice which was primarily dictated by budget. However, the location was ideal, the rooms spacious and well-appointed and the personnel very helpful. Any requests were expedited immediately and professionally. As others have noted, the decor was a bit dated and the lobby rather gloomy and the first impression of the breakfast room was of a cafeteria. However, the service, location and great value all trumped minor aesthetic niggles.Would definitely stay here again

This hotel is just a less than 10 min walk from the Duomo/Duomo Metro station. When we checked in, they upgraded our room to a superior one that comes with a jacuzzi bathtub! The room is spacious for 2 adults and an 8 year old and the service and breakfast were good. As it is just within walking distance to the main shopping hub (La Rinascente, Vittorio Emmuele) as well as a good Chinese Restuarant, we found it most convenient, especially since Milan is our last stop.

Very near the Duomo and shopping. Staff very helpful. Feels like a business hotel (although no wifi in rooms) with strange 80s cruise ship decor. Very respectable breakfast.
