“If you need a place to sleep it is fine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We stayed in Serena for 3 nights in May. The hotel is fine, we wanted to stay close to the center of Milano and not far from the train station. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The service was ok, at reception there was this very nice young lady receptionist who was very helpful and smiley. Breakfast was very simple. Do not expect too much, but if you only need an average, clean place to sleep this hotel is fine.

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

Clean hotel. Conveniently located near Lima metro station. Very good service, and very friendly staff who speak good English. Buffet breakfast includes cappucinos, and other coffee drinks. Some renovation underway. Bathrooms in renovated rooms are much nicer than most small European hotels.

Room Tip: Renovation is underway. Ask for a room that has been renovated.

Very good location for exploring Milan. Close to central station.
Really nice neighbourhood, calm and not noisy. Pretty close to good restaurants and wine road (recommend for a nice glass of wine).
Small rooms but clean. No fridge and no proper shampoo and conditioner. Breakfast was ok. WiFi to purchase by the hour for 1euro.

The rooms where quite small, but clean and quit. The breakfast was nice and we were taking it everyday in the terrace, which was really nice.
The is staff polite and helpfull, the price worthed the money, but the most important was the location of the hotel. Near to Corso Buenos Aires and to a metro station, even the central station is close and you can walk to it. I would suggest it to someone who would like to visit Milan

(+) Very convenient location, quiet neighborhood, clean, good breakfast, rooms in appropriate size, terraced rooms
(-) Corridor's floor on the top floor needed renovation (I'm not sure this problem exists now, since we were staying there last year), there is no minibar, Rooms were not sound proofed, Paid internet (Wifi in lobby & wired in rooms), staff was mostly friendly and just one of them was a little indifferent (we asked for a map of Milan and he said it is not available!)

This hotel has a lovely location, excellent staff, friendly and extremely hard-working. Rooms are very clean, nice to have clean towels every day. Tasty breakfast, all in all fantastic value for your money and worth to take a visit!

The hotel is conveniently located near a train station (Lima) that takes you directly (4 stops) to the city center (Duomo). It has an Italian restaurant in front and many shops and cafes surrounding. The hotel is very small and only the lobby and common areas are renovated. The rooms are outdated and very small. I traveled with kids so the rooms are important for me. If traveling alone or in couples, maybe this is manageable. The breakfast is simple but good and the coffee is very good. There are better hotels close by similar in price and with better rooms. If they renovate the rooms, the overall hotel rating is better.
