Ok, so this hotel is not a 5*- but do you really expect that for the price.
The staff- always on hand (reception manned 24hours), very friendly and couldnt be more helpful when we asked them for transport/day out tips
The room- Was spotlessly clean and the room we stayed in was huge for the 3 of us, yes we were aware of the traffic outside, but this is milan and I highly doubt unless you pay huge amounts of money that you will get a 'quiet' room- this is Milan a city on the go!
Our rooms were swept and beds made everyday, I felt very happy to leave the key at reception in the knowledge that someone was always sat there.
The food- I only had breakfast once during my stay (on the last morning) Its not gourmet food, but toast and jam/chocolate spread, croissant and yoghurt done me fine. To be honest this was the only hotel I see that included it so surely its an added bonus.
The location- Like I previously said its on a main road with traffic passing pretty much all night- but I got used to it, as did my two friends. This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the metro line that takes you straight to the centre, its about 10 minutes to central and you can hear the tram doors opening the stops that close. LOCATION IS KEY!
The bathroom- yes this was shared and yes sometimes the hot water was lacking but if you insist on having a shower when everyone else does (peak times 9-10am) then of course that will be the case! It was spotlessly clean every time I used it and I didn't find it a problem at all sharing.
The security- there is a buzz in intercom with camera at the front gate, so give them a big smile when you enter. this also means that no one can get in if they aren't staying there! Like I said the reception is manned 24hours and situated next to the front door. Although I felt extremely safe in Milan its always good to have that extra reassurance
Overall we were very happy with the hotel, we didn't pay mega bucks but the hotel we got could afford to charge a lot more!! I would recommend this hotel and would definitely visit again. The money you save compared to other hotel prices can be spent in Milans FABULOUS shops
