“Timely shuttle and clean, quiet rooms.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Free shuttle to and from the airport. Not much in the area, but the on-site restaurant was fine for the night before our early morning trip. It had vegetarian options and an entire gluten free menu (cibo senza glutine!). Clean, big bathtub, comfortable bed. Rooms were larger/"American" size. Nothing exciting, but restful for that exhausted night before you leave. The shuttle leaves ON TIME (unlike many things in Italy), so be ready and waiting to catch it early.

Great location for catching the flight out the next day. When we arrived, it took 90 minutes to get picked up at the airport, from the "every 30 minute" shuttle.

Mattress was the worst we had on our entire Italy vacation. That's saying something. Room was stuffy and warm. Window only opens from the top, not too much help.

Absolutely not much around. One restaurant, "through the woods". We walked, it was excellent.

Staff was very helpful and friendly, the best part of the stay. Room layout, like power outlets, lights, sink, etc., very bizarre and Novotel esq.

Suitable for a quick stay, but will try someone else next time, mostly due to the beds.

Dear Guest,
thank you for sharing your opinion.
I apologize for the discomfort of the bed, Novotel is currently working to implement a newer and more technological solution for the whole bedding structure.
I am also sorry that you had to wait so long to be picked up at the airport, normally the shuttle service is on time with the scheduled runs but I will personally investigate should you like to contact us and give us more details.

I hope to welcome you soon again in our hotel.

Best regards,

This hotel got a nice terace and a swimming pool, open during the summertime. The breakfast is okay, but not fantastic. Complementary airport shuttle runs every 30min to Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 as well!

Room Tip: At the second level the smoking rooms are located

Location
Close to Milan Malpensa Airport (Hotel offers a free shuttle), ca. 40 km to Milan city centre, 8 km to Gallarate, 30 mins drive to Lago Maggiore. In the vicinity there are only very small towns. Close to the hotel there is just one restaurant - the Pizzeria Nel buco del mulo is 500 metres away.

Rooms
Rooms are in a very good standard and offer twin or king beds. There is also a superior category but this is just your ordinary King room plus a free bottle of water, Espresso machine, bathrobe and additional hygiene amenities. All rooms have a small fridge, kettle, sleeping sofa and bathrooms have both shower and bathing tub. TV offers local channels, Sky Sport and some international channels. There is free Wi-Fi around the hotel, however some rooms have a mediocre connection (only 2 bars).

Service
Room is cleaned everyday, hygiene is generally good although some rooms need to have more attention (small stains on the wall, stains on the chair). There is free unguarded parking as well as guarded underground parking (1 € per hour). Free shuttle to Milan Malpensa Airport. If free rooms are available, staff will check you in even before official check-in times.

Facilities
Facilities include a swimming pool, table tennis, several X-Box & Wii stations and a small gym (Treadmill, stationary bike and a weight machine). Next to that there is a small library close to the reception and a couple of meeting rooms. Reception has also a luggage storage room.

Restaurant
Breakfast is ok, typical for Italy is a somewhat small variety. Choice includes continental breakfast as well as scrambled egg & bacon. However, better be early (before 7:30h) to enjoy breakfast. After that it gets really busy with Airline crews and the staff is lagging behind with refilling.
Just dined there once, food is really overpriced, even for Milan standards and nothing special.

Stayed for one night to catch morning flight. Modern, clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff.
Novotel share the shuttle bus with the nearby Ibis hotel so it must be pre-booked if you don't want to be left. Wifi does not work due to technical issue.
