We booked this as a transit hotel as we made our way from sydney to milan. We booked it through hotelclub.net for $AUD120, which was a very cheap rate because it was non-refundable and paid for well in advance.
It was quite a while after we had booked and paid that we read the reviews on Tripadvisor for this hotel... The previous reviews made this hotel sounds terrible and unhygienic, but we were unable to change our booking without losing money, so we were very worried about what it would be like when we turned up.
The shuttle to and from the airport is very handy, and goes at least every half hour. When we arrived at the hotel we noticed that a lot of the cabin crew from our JAL flight were also checking in, which reassured us that hopefully the hotel wouldn't be as bad as the reviews described it as!
I am pleased to say that our night at this hotel was an entirely positive experience. The lobby is very impressive, and the room was far better than I had imagined. Our room really couldn't have been cleaner, and we were left so confused that other people had had such unpleasant stays here.
The rooms were dead quiet and had shutter-doors for the windows so that you could make the room completely dark for sleeping (great for getting over jet lag). The TV had channels from a lot of different languages, and the room was spacious enough to comfortably store our suitcases so that we weren't constantly tripping over them. The beds were probably the best part of the room- they were very wide for single beds and comfortable, good quality mattresses. We slept very well. Bathrooms were new and clean, and included a japanese style toilet with all the buttons and washing options. Complimentary toilettries included the usual shampoo and soap, as well as toothbrushes and a hairbrush.
It should be noted that although the hotel is at a very convenient location for getting to/from the airport, there really is nothing near the hotel apart from a road. This means that unless you bring food with you, you really have to buy it from the hotel. There is a bar/restaurant on the top floor, but we ate dinner at the cafe near reception which is slightly cheaper. We paid about $AUD20 each for a main course, which i guess is still quite pricey. If you wanted something cheaper for dinner, you can get a plate of noodle stir fry in the convenience store on the ground floor, which they heat up for you, but you'd have to bring it back to your room to eat it.
We honestly had no complaints about this hotel, and were actually impressed with its quality. It was exactly what we needed for a transit hotel.
