“An Hostel for the price of an Hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Staff was nice and rooms were cleaned...thats all.

walls are very thin and you can hear everything in the others rooms.
The breakfast is included but dont worth a penny (a plate of low cost bakery and horrible coffee from the machine).
location is not so far from the central station but far away from everything else.

If we had paid for an hostel there will be no complaints but its really not the standing to be called hotel.

Bathroom was cold (no heating) and not so good ventilate....

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Very, very clean, recently renovated. Location is good too, 1 min walk to the metro stop (Loreto, line 1 and 2) and about 15-20 mins walk to the Milano Centrale train station. The ensuite shower had the best water pressure (and very hot too) in Italy - I've lived in England and Italy before and it's rare to find good water pressure. Owner was very nice and helpful. Breakfast included in the price.

Room Tip: Rooms facings the courtyard (as opposed to the road side) is quieter.
