“Hot and noisy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Stayed here for a long weekend but could have chosen better. Our room was really warm in March - no air conditioning despite a unit on the wall. Room looked straight over a noisy bar with music playing until 2am so having the window open not a great option. Beds were very hard with a scratchy sheet.

Would consider a chain next time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front were very noisy with the bar opposite. Not sure if the back would have been bett...

Long weekend stay with family. Not perfect for kids and streets busy with noise. Walls a bit thin and can her babies crying. Breakfast was good. Will stay again if I am without the family. Best part was the near by park that has child playground and kids train. Plenty of good restaurants, price though. Always do your own search for places to eat, never ask at reception. The applies to where ever you go, standard practice to may your own mistakes and not blame hotels who are influenced by treat bonuses.

Room Tip: Never choose street facing rooms as the night party noise is terrible.

As it says on the Tin, Location is the Key to this Hotel as it is right beside the Moscova Metro Station. Brilliant Timesaver for a short stay in Milan. Excellent Buffet Breakfast, and a very popular Cafe Bar across the Street with Top Class Happy Hour Fare makes this Hotel. Clean and Efficient but take note no Air Conditioning. We found it very warm and a little uncomfortable at nIght even in Mid March. That was the only drawback however, otherwise it would have been top marks!

Room Tip: Book Early!

The position of the hotel is good and it is easy to reach the cento storico either by a longish walk, frequent bus or by metro.

The receptionists are very friendly and helped us a lot.

We had a room at the back of the hotel and it was very quiet.

The breakfast was really good and my grandson (aged 9) found he could eat as much as he liked - everything was excellent.

Opposite the hotel are some nice bars/ eating places that are resonably priced but there are some that are very expensive so check the prices!.

The hotel is quite simple. Even it doesn´t have restaurant and the breakfast is not very complete but saying this the hotel is in a very good location in the Brera area close to the "beatiful people" area and walking distance to the Duomo. It´s my hotel everytime that I go to Milan (quite often). Probably there are better hotels but I really like it.
