“Let down by the details”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

First impressions are reasonable, but it's let down by lots of small details:
- Location is poor, nothing to do and nowhere to eat in the area.
- Front desk and restaurant customer service is pretty non-existent.
- Rooms are very hot, and air conditioning shuts off after a few minutes unless you call reception.
- Wifi is patchy / non-existent.
- Shower was probably the worst I've ever used. No water pressure and temperature varied wildly between ice cold and scalding hot regardless of set point.
- Breakfast is disappointing.
Obviously the location is hard to fix, but if the rest was sorted it would be a pretty decent hotel.

Visited the HOtel on a business trip, recommended by my client. The Hotel is excellent, great rooms, wonderfull bathrooms. Downside is the location, there is nothing to do in the area.

For business excellent, for pleasure I would book a different hotel.

Breakfast is very good for an Italian Hotel. The staff was very helpfull and spoke english very well.

Room Tip: Make sure you have navigation with you, not so easy to find. You can park for free in the parking ga...

I stayed there 3 nights and it was great! Hard to get there using the directions at that time from internet (they fixed that now). It is outside the urban area so take care when you by metro pass or tickets. So it is remote but worth use it. The surondings looks pretty safe even at late hours. Clean rooms, quiet nights, good breakfast and very helpful staff: you can relly on them.

Just arrived at the hotel today while it was dark however, it feels very remote from the heart of the city. A massive construction pit behind the hotel will hopefully not create too much noise in the morning. I'm on the eight floor and the one thing that was immediately out of the ordinary was the temperature, hot! In the room the temperature must have been at least 30 degrees. Fortunately windows can be opened! The room is spacious although an old model TV, no iron, no Wifi, and a meager selection of bathroom amenities, don't make it the most efficient place to stay. Nevertheless it is clean and spacious and the service typically Italian.

This is a good standard of hotel at a very reasonable price in a quieter part of Milan about 30 mins by Metro to centre .
Rooms are large with high standard of decor .
They don't charge 5 euro for internet cable anymore and some floors have wireless

Decent enough hotel close to my company's offices in Milan.

The ride from Malpensa is expensive and "enhanced " by about 20 Euros as the cab driver couldn't find it.

Not greatly served by local restaurants (though there are several takeaways and fast food joints).

Room exactly what you'd expect. Breakfast was inclusive, and whilst not tremendous wasn't bad either. Good value for 100 Euros.

No service at all, not so friendly staff, horrible location (not in Milan at all), so taxi drivers had to use their GPS to find it, so hot in the halways that you feel like fainting. You even have to buy a cable for 5 Euro if you want to use their internet which they of course also charge for....
