I had stayed here before and had a generally good experience. This time, several things were a Pain in the A$$. I got Internet included in the room rate, but you needed to get a new password from the front desk every day, assuming they don't accidentally give you a 1-hour password, which they did the first day. The first day I initially connected to their wireless connection but it was very slow, so I used the wired connection in the room. Well, the same password can't be used for both wired and wireless, so I had to get a new password.
The TV was small and annoying to navigate to get to watch the two English-language channels, BBC and CNN.They offer a shuttle bus to Malpensa/Milan airport, but we found out that it doesn't operate on Saturday, so we'll have to take a taxi (at 30 euros). they explained that the taxis don't take credit cards before 8 am (???) so we'd need euros, but they don't exchange money at the hotel and there wasn't an ATM, either, so we had to walk to the nearby shopping plaza to use an ATM.
The rooms were clean, but had limited clothes storage space. Very few amenities were in the bathroom, so don't forget your toiletries.
On the plus side, the bar in the lobby was very convenient, with a nice bartender and a good selection of beverages (including Oban Scotch, a favorite).
We stayed at the hotel because of convenience to the airport and our distributor, but I wouldn't go out of my way to stay here again. It's listed as 4 Star, but I'd give it a 3.
