“Basic, outdated, budget hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2015

This hotel is quite conveniently located as it is close to many bus stops, a metro station and a train station so it is not too difficult to get to the city centre. The staff were friendly enough and happy to help with most things/requests. I stayed in a double room with a friend which was big enough for two people and clean. The hairdryer was extremely strange though and many aspects of the hotel are quite outdated. There are some restaurants, cafes and shops nearby the hotel however not many shops seemed to be opened while we stayed.

Overall, a decent stay as it did the job but I would not stay here again.

This hotel is definitely a budget hotel. But when compared with most other such establishments in large European cities it does a very good job. I stayed here for 3 nights, while attending meetings at the nearby university.

We checked in at 11:30, but no problem the rooms were ready. The single rooms are indeed very small, but if that bothers you book a double room, which is much bigger and still very affordable. Air conditioning worked fine, likewise the free wifi. Location is great, almost on top of a metro station and 10 minutes walk from the nearby university campus. There are several restaurants in the area.

Reception staff were all friendly and spoke sufficient english for communication to work without problems. There is a small bar and lounge area open 24/7. Breakfast was very limited, but what do you expect for 5 Euros.

The only criticism I have seen here which I agree with is that the bathrooms are very small. But quite frankly that doesn't worry me when I'm on a business trip.

Room Tip: Single rooms are small, so you may want a double even for one person

Clean but old and outdated. Super small shower. If you just need a place to crash on a budget this is ok. AC didn't work. Very old. There's a radio in the headboard from like 1965. Hotel staff was polite. Everything was presentable.

So you're looking for a cheap hotel in Milan, this one is good value for money.

I had a single room (105) which was fine for my needs, somewhere to get my head down for three nights. Granted, it was small but it was comfortable enough with an en-suite toilet/shower & flat screen TV & free wi-fi.

The room was cleaned every day, the bed linen was always clean and fresh towels were also supplied every day. The room was cosy (although no obvious way to control the heat from the radiator other than open the window) and not too noisy during my stay although you could hear everyone getting out the lift on my floor and going to their rooms.

Breakfast was continental style and ok although a better selection was available from local cafes.

All in, this was a great choice and "bang for buck" you'll be hard pushed to find a better deal.

I was staying here for over a week, and i can't have complaints at all. The hotel has a great communication, u're 10 minutes with the green line to the center, the bus stop 81 to ther center is also 10m. The rooms were clean, every day new towels, soaps and shampoos, we were staying in a room for 3,even though we were 2. so there was enough space. The view I didn't like at all, but who cares u have other stuff to do anyway. From the staff the lady at the reception who works during the day is the nicest of all, unlike the other older female worker who worked at night. The lady who served and made the breakfast was always so kind asking if we need coffee or so, and the kitchen was average, maybe even small, but the whole hotel is small again. The food was delicious though, the croissants and the creams with coffee or tea are totally okay if you're staying for a couple of days. My only complaint is that the internet connection was not so good from my room, but downstairs in the loby was fine. I was suprised only about the city taxes not so big (2euro a day) but for a week for a family not so cheap again, but oh well, u have to be prepared for anything.

Bathroom is very small, but useable. Furniture is old but doesn't smell as such. TV was a LCD 22". It was close to the subway station, so from there to downtown was easy and fast. The region is not very central, but walking a little you can find a nice café and some supermarkets and close to the Pizzeria Trattoria Anthony, which was a great experience. We had to walk a little while to find ATMs. Breakfast is too simple, we preferred to take it in a café in the region.
