When I arrived, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular as it was only 45 euros/night (didn't opt for the breakfast). Room was clean, free wifi - you get what you pay for. The staff at the front desk aren't over helpful, but they'll answer your questions (granted, you ask the RIGHT questions). However, this is where is takes a turn for the worst. I noticed on the back of the street map (printed by the hotel), there was the metro map, and there was a direct metro line from 'Dateo' to 'Malpensa Airport'. Great, I thought I could save the hassle of getting to 'Centrale' to catch the Malpensa Express. To confirm, I checked with the front desk employee the night before my departure. He said 'yes'. I asked 'how long?' he said 'one hour', I asked 'and just one line? I don't need to change trains?' and he said 'no'. So that was that. Next morning at check out, I thought I should still double check, and again, they said it's a DIRECT train line from Dateo to Malpensa. I set off to the metro station, and being a Sunday, of course, there was no staff working in the metro. I looked at the ACTUAL metro map and there is NO direct line - you have to change about what looked like 3-4 lines, and even then, I couldn't purchase a ticket from the machine because it didn't accept my 20euro note. After 20 minutes (of my allocated 60 minutes to get to the airport), I decided to leave, cab to Centrale Station and get the Malpensa Express. Long story short - I made it on the flight, but BARELY. Don't ever ask the front desk for information, do your own research.
Oh and the walls of the room are very thin - I could hear a man snoring the whole night!
