Reviewed December 22, 2009

My daughter, who is spending her junior year abroad in Florence, stayed with me at the Mediolanum. I thought she would enjoy all the bright colors and sure enough, it was a hit. It's a really cheerful hotel. The staff--from the people at the front desk to the bell hops--were helpful, courteous, and always professional. It's a well-run hotel. We liked the location as we had heavy bags and it was an easy walk from the train station. The neighborhood is safe and the street the hotel is on is many beautiful old buildings in it. We walked as far as the Cathedral and Castle while sightseeing and didn't find the hotel out of the way at all!

Our stay in Milan was very enjoyable and the Mediolanum provided the accommodation we needed for our city break. Arriving by train at Centrale we walked the short distance to the hotel, were greeted by a friendly receptionist and from there to our fourth floor triple room. A good size room with comfortable beds and a smart tiled shower room. The theme is comfortable modern, with interesting colour change lighting in the rooms. Breakfast is taken in the typical continental basement breakfast room, with the best hotel scrambled eggs ever! A good range a cheese, ham and cereal all included.
We stayed four nights at the Mediolanum and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable value conveniently located and modern hotel.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, once at the beginning and once at the end of our trip in Italy as we were flying in/out of the country from Milan. Overall I thought it was a good hotel, a bit pricey but that seems to be the case with all hotels in Milan. The first night as a bonus we must've got some sort of upgrade as the room we got had 2 bedrooms in it. It is located a 5 - 10 min walk from the central station, 15 - 20 min cab ride from Cardona station (if you are taking the Malpensa Express and want to avoid the extra subway ride to central station). Some things however. It is located in a farily noisy location, one should likely bring ear plugs to get a good sleep. Also the major downer was that the AC did not work? We called the lobby at around midnight when we discovered the AC was really just recyling the air and not cooling it. The response we got was that it was likely disabled because it wasn't the season for AC. The guy on the other end was courteous and I do respect the fact that at that hour he likely couldn't do anything. But I do think Hotel management is making a serious mistake in disabling the AC and therefore making the decision for their customers on whether they need AC or not. Obviously done for cost cutting purposes. It was a generally warm day in Milan when we stayed and although the nights were fairly cool we ended up not having a pleasant stay as the humidity in the room lingered in the room after we showered. Opening the windows was out of the question as we didn't want to get any bugs into the room.
Overall a decent hotel, good location and very helpful staff.

Dear sir ,

thank you so much for your comment , we really would like to apologize with you for the a.c. problem at the night I can guaranteed you that the problem have been fixed as soon as we receive your comment.
However I would like to explain you and future guest how it work our a.c. system during spring or autumn season :
as we are obljed to preserve the world to the future we have a very new automatic a.c. system that in case of the outside temperature is below 15 degree the system interrupt the cooling system from 1 am to 6 am , that means that you should have receive in your room a fresh air filtrated coming from the top of the building .
probably this system did not work properly during your stay and as soon as you let us know we manage to fix it.
Hoping to see you soon again in out hotel , I wish you a nice day.

The Mediolanum is perfectly located for a city trip. It is 5 minutes from the main railway station and Metro and close enough to the cetre to walk.

The staff were very polite and pleasant at all times.

The decoration is, well, unusual. Someone was keen on rather pretty bold colours and in places it looked like it was completed by a keen DIYer, but inoffensive.

This is a nice hotel, very clean one, very convenient location, good breakfast, very helpful staff both at the reception and in the restaurant. I read some reviews below about the allegedly not quite safe area around the hotel - I arrived via bus from Malpensa to Grand Centrale late at night (around 1 am) and went by foot to the hotel and did not feel unsafe at all. There were some bars along via Napo Torriani, which were full of public ( people are sitting outside, have some drinks/coffee or dinner) so please don't think that it is some dark desereted area. Along with that this is not noisy, all these bars are rather for relax and having some light drinks/coffee/dinner than for hardly partying - so no drunk loud companies, etc))

Booked the hotel with some trepidation after reading some of the reviews. I need not have been worried. The hotel was fabulous. We didn't arrive until 1:30am and the man on reception was very friendly and helpful.

The room was spotless, yes it's not massive but how big does the room really need to be? The bathroom had a really good shower, complimentary shampoo and conditioner. The hairdryer wasn't the fastest though.

The bedroom had plenty of wardrobe space, had a massive mirror, well stocked mini bar and the blinds outside the window are great - total blackout blinds. All operated electronically. There are also funky lights on the ceiling, can pick which colour you want.
Breakfast was what I expected - continental, which was more than adequate. Only hot food I saw was scrambled eggs.

Staff on reception very friendly and approachable. one picked out a really lovely Italian restaurant for the evening (Serafino, real Italian, we were the only English in there, beautiful food). The next day we missed breakfast and the man on reception offered to get the kitchen staff to bring us up a plate of food and some coffee or tea! Now how many hotels offer that kind of service.

All in all, a really trendy hotel, great location (only 5 mins walk to Central station) and my only criticisms would be the bed was a bit too hard for me and the hairdryer wasn't very good. But that would not stop me from booking there next time I go to Milan.
