“Not clean, slow service”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Slow service in the restaurant. Room was not clean with some accumulated (old) dirt. Checkout was painfully slow, not suitable for an airport hotel. Nevertheless, the hotel has potential and with some small (staff) changes it would be a better place.

We just returned from Milan and stayed here for 1 night. Arrived at 7 pm and left for an airport at 6 a.m.

Room – we asked for non-smoking floor and stayed at 302 – the room was good size, bathroom was great. Water pressure was amazing. The room could be a little better such as TV, bed, and overall appearance. However, we stayed for one night and wanted easy and fast access to Linate for at 7.30 a.m flight.

Area – there is nothing around. We found a small deli and got water there, also went to Moby Dick 3 for pizza – do NOT go there – horrible food (the worst we had in Italy)

Transportation – we decided to be a little adventurous and took public transportation from Train Station – you need to get on tram 9 (get off at P.Za. Cinque), and then transfer to tram #27 (V.Le Ungheria), then walk for 2 minutes. It wasn’t too bad as we only paid 3 Euros for both of us.
In the morning, we came to front desk at 5.45 a.m. and got on 6 a.m. free shuttle to the airport. The shuttle runs every 20 minutes and can accommodate only 8 people, so be mindful of that.

Overall, for the price we paid and for the purpose – we liked it.

Room Tip: The entire 3rd floor is non-smoking.

We are leaving Milan after being in this wonderful city for 9 months. Arrived at the hotel with 5 heavy cases, no porter and no offers of help from the staff only from another guest.
The bar service is your worst nightmare, the girl on duty had filthy, greasy hair. She poured the dregs from a bottle of Chardonnay into a wine glass giving my wife about a third of a normal portion, and refused to top it up. On the next round I decided to order a bottle. After 30 minutes when it hadn't arrived, I went to chase her up and she was joking to another staff member & was counting money in the till. Another 15 minutes later the wine finally arrived, without the twice promised,olives!
The restaurant is just about ok, made bearable by the super waiter, Raj.

The rooms are fine and the overnight receptionist was very friendly but unwilling to assist with our cases.

For a major hotel chain, the quality of staff and the lack of customer care makes this hotel well down the bottom of the list of Milan hotels. I would not recommend anyone stays there unless you are happy just staying in your room.

I stayed at the Novotel Linate in May 2014.
The hotel provides a free shuttle bus to and from the airport. For those not familiar with Linate airport, upon arrival you need to go upstairs to departures at the gate mentioned by the hotel to get the shuttle (remember to phone the hotel otherwise they don't know you require the shuttle).
The hotel is around a 10 minute drive from the airport (do not take a taxi).
The foyer for the hotel was nice and the staff extremely welcoming.
I stayed on the 5th floor in a standard room which is standard for Novotel standards. The room was clean and large, the only thing I would say is that the window in the room was very small and really did not allow enough light in making the room feel dull.
The gym in the hotel was basic and accessed by walking past the outdoor pool. Although basic it served its needs as it was always empty.
The restaurant in the hotel was nice and staffed by very friendly people who went out of their way to ensure you had a lovely meal. It was a bit pricey but I guess that Milan for you.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for business but maybe not family holidays

Well placed in the vicinity of Linate airport, good choice if you need to catch a morning plane, but probably not a good one to visit the city. The shuttle service was very useful and goes every 20 minutes if I remember correctly; it takes 10 minutes to get the airport when there is not so much traffic.
Comfortable room, although nothing special (actually our shower had problems with the drain). Breakfast was very rich and diversified.
