I think the bad reviews here represent more a lack of traveller common sense than poor hotel service. This family run a clean smart simple hotel which is great value in an expensive city. They are neither internet savvy nor good with English so beware of last minute bookings - I booked within 14 hrs of arrival and they did not have my booking on arrival - but sorted me with the last room they had quite quickly. I should have phoned them with such a late booking to ensure they definitely had a room. Use an internet site to translate your question. It's only 10mins walk from Romolo metro. They provide breakfast in your room only & you need to tell them what time you want it the next morning. They have excellent free wifi internet access - just ask for the code. Most hotels here charge for that. I then used an internet translation site on my laptop screen to communicate if I had a specific question. The rooms are clean tiled floors, excellent hot new shower, bed clean and comfortable in a quiet room. 24 hour concierge. This was all I needed for my business trip to this poorer part of Milan & was able to get loads of work done. I would stay again but phone ahead to avoid internet double bookings.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Mercurio Hotel, which has been completely restructured with a 24 hour reception, is ready to welcome you with 19 classically styled rooms, all of which are equipped with: private bathroom with shower, hairdryer, telephone, TV Lcd and free wi-fi internet connection. Our two stars hotel, situated in the south of Milan near Porta Ticinese, is a great base for spending an enjoyable week-end due to the numerous bars and restaurants located in the "Navigli" district. Thanks to its proximity to the Tangenziale Ovest (the West Ring Road) [exit: Viale Liguria] it is easily reached from the motorway. It is also a great position for reaching the Forum di Assago, venue of a lot of national and international concerts... The Mercurio Hotel has a warm atmosphere thanks to the two young managers who will look after your every need in a kind and professional manner. Furthermore, the Gaetano Pini, San Paolo and Humanitas hospitals are situated very near to us and we have special prices throughout the year for guests who are also attending these hospitals. ... more less
