Rooms was perfectly clean and with very nice modern interior. The staff was very helpful and they made our stay very simple even we were in Italy for the first time. I strongly recommend it for all kinds of travelers because its location allows you to be in the city heart for no more than 30 minutes by foot and the prices of rooms are reasonable.

I had an excellent experience in this hotel: the service was good, starting from check in, to breakfast and check out. The main thing in hotels is the service and they were good at it. I will definitely make future reservation there. Overall, the room was clean. The hotel is quiet and in a good location.

Not well maintained. Water was flooding out in bathroom, nd we hv to use a towel water from spreading out. We stayed at room no 326. Internet was very slow Breakfast served was good. Receptionist Lady who works on Morning shift treated us good and was kind. Was very helpful on suggesting us few places around to visit and few more of our queries. Receptionist man (in mid 40s) who was working on late night shift was rude and was showing faces behind my husband without knowing I was watching him. We went to ask for water late night by 12 and he was not very helpful and his behavior was rude. When we tipped him the balance change for the two bottles his face was full of teeth. How shameless! While he just showed his face and mocked us on our back on presence of another couple, yet he never felt ashame to accept the tip! Only bad experience from the place. How can the management place these kind of people at reception that too in a tourist country!

I stayed at the Viva for two nights, and found it to be very comfortable and clean. The location was in a quiet side street without too much noise from the main roads. There were several very nice restaurants within walking distance, and a wonderful patisserie just around the corner. The public areas were immaculately clean, and the room itself was cleaned every day, the bed remade and the towels changed. The shower had a choice of two water vessels, which I was very pleased about: a big "rose" showerhead fixed to the ceiling, and a hand-held with a firm spray affixed to the wall, and with a decent length of hose - the water quickly rose to a good temperature and the water pressure was decent. The soap dispensers were squirty bottles fixed to the wall and were kept refilled, with decent smelling soap. At breakfast there was coffee (of course) as well as a good choice of teas, as well as cereal and yoghurt, milk and coffee, and fruit or meat and cheese, as well as very fresh danishes and croissants. The staff were all friendly and welcoming, and helpful. I do not know if it is value for money, as the room was paid for by my business colleague.

Pros: Buffet breakfast, quiet neighbourhood, restaurants nearby, few minutes walk to bus stops, PWD friendly-hotel. Cons: A bit far from the centre, only 1 bottled water (500ml)for 2 people staying in a double room for 3 days, no kettle and cups, no slippers, no cabinets just a few hangers to hang our coats. Overall: This Hotel is fine if you want a quite and chill time in Milan. Its good for the price range, would rather book here than in a hostel. Its not perfect but I would say, its the best deal in its price. Would book again if going to Milan. As for the transportation, its 1 ride away to everything as there are a lot of bus stops and trams nearby.

We have recently stayed at this hotel as a friends' treat. For starters, if you are thinking of staying somewhere near the city centre, forget it. It's quite a long walk to the main part of Milano. Either you take a (wonderful) tram number 5 which takes you to Milano Centrale and then the underground M3 to Duomo or you take bus 54 about 200 metres away from the hotel and get off at the end of the line or take a taxi (the most expensive) or simply have some exercise and walk for about 45 minutes... and eventually you are at the heart of Milano. You decide. We were given a room on the first floor which faced the back of the hotel. The room was fine but a bit small for the standards of a 3 star establishment. It was the first time that we stayed in a room without a wardrobe or cupboard. Only four coat hangers were at our disposal next to the bed. There was a little round table with a free bottle of water and also a safe. A flat tv set was hanging on the wall opposite the bed. Apparently the device was ideally placed but the space between the bed and the wall with the tv was so narrow that every time I got up in tthe middle of the night to use the toilet I banged either my head or my shoulder with the diabolical machine. Over our heads and on the wall there was a rather old and beautiful photograph of Duomo. When I asked one of the receptionists about the year that photo was taken, she smiled at me and with a funny face she answered that nobody had asked her that question before and logically she did not have the slightest clue about its age. The toilet was fine with a shower equipped with a constanly changing colour of light which made the sensation we were at a disco which brought us back to our youth. The breakfast room is on the ground floor and it was quite good with different kinds of food and drinks. We missed a toaster, though. All in all, the place is not that bad and they also have a reading room or lounge where guests can spend the time reading magazines or books which are available. So if we ever go back to Milano, we probably won't choose hotel Viva. Now we know what it is like.

I was expecting a lot more from this hotel after looking at the online photos. I believe some rooms have been recently upgraded but not the one we stayed in. I felt like I was staying in a student dorm, the walls were grubby, bed uncomfortable and in general the room is very basic! Didn’t even have a fridge or iron. I made a visit whilst 6months pregnant and was hoping for a nice room to relax in after a day of walking but this was just not a nice place to spend time. The breakfast was your standard continental and about what I expect, no real issues with that. I would not recommend this hotel unfortunately, it was a real downer on our visit.

I have stayed in a lot of hotels, and this is one of the worst I’ve experienced. Felt like a hostel. Attached are pictures of the room quality - marks over the walls, two very uncomfortable single beds propped together with springs which could be felt - a random set of bunk beds in our room. My pregnant wife struggled to sleep in the bed as it was so uncomfortable. No real English speakers working so any attempt to discuss issues was a waste of time. The hotel looks average from outside but worse once you step into the lobby. No option for an iron except going down to the lobby and ironing your clothes there. No fridge, no kettle. The WiFi advertised as free is absolutely useless. Would take about 3 minutes to load a single web page. Breakfast was what you would expect so hasn’t impacted the score. Would not recommend at all.
