We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights (family of 2 parents + 2 kids). The staff was very pleasant and helpful, the room was big (we got a 'La Scala' apartment with 2 balconies which was a great experience by itself), WiFi is free & with good coverage and, most of all, the location is excellent - just a couple of meters from the underground station and only a walking distance from Milan Central Station. In addition, we were able to park the car in the hotel underground parking nearby.
At the downside: the breakfast selection was a bit disappointing (and every day it was the same excluding the days when one out of two kinds of sausages was running out and they did not refill), the safe and the bathroom door locks were broken at arrival (we reported the issue in the evening of the 1st day and we had to wait for the next day for repair), the hot/cold water stability in the shower was almost unacceptable. Also this specific apartment has a steep stairway inside which was not so safe for our younger kid (when we asked to change the room in the first day we were told they have no other rooms while the next day we preferred to leave the things as they are).
After all, nice hotel with perfect location but has its drawbacks at price higher than it should be...
