I stayed in this hotel for two nights in May. There were three of us so we took a larger room which had a sofa bed which ate up most of the "living space" but it ws really not a problem in terms of size. There was still enough room for three women with an enormous mount of clothes and makeup to get ready on a Saturday night. Some of the photos suggest a rather strange orange plasticy design to the rooms but ours was more of the typical mocca/beige variety. Overall I found the hotel to be suitably stylish in a relaxed sort of way. The jacuzzi bath was a bit of an added luxury, but probably best not to add the rather nice bubble bath provided as we ended up drowning in bubbles!
The hotel itself was a little hard to find at first as the entrance is in a courtyard off the street. However its within easy walking distance of the duomo and is a great base for a weekend in Milan. I have to say this hotel really saved our trip to Milan because overall I found people a bit stuffy and rude in many of the shops and restaurants we visited. The food was pretty terrible everywhere. It poured with rain (not that that can be blamed on anyone) and I didn't find Milan to be nearly as beautiful as the other parts of Italy I have visited. In spite of this the hotel was really relaxing, the beds were luxoriously comfortable and the breakfast spread was a real treat. However, the best thing about this hotel was the staff. Everyone who greated us was incredibly friendly, more than happy to make suggestions, book taxis, look after luggage etc. and really made us feel welcome.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Milan for business or pleasure - but perhaps without a recommendation of Milan itself.
