“Sleek, modern hotel with a quiet, relaxing ambience. Breakfast needs improving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2012

Situated about 5 minutes walk from Milan Central Station this is a lovely hotel to catch up on some much needed sleep in the best beds we've slept in....ever. Bed linen and towels soft aned luxurious. Rooms was spotless and so quiet - we didn't hear anything at night. Reception staff all spoke english and were helpful and efficient.
Lobby and bar area is spacious and relaxing.
Only negative was breakfast - very minimal choice of things e.g. bread rolls, jams etc. Scrambled eggs were inedible - did they make them from powder and not real eggs?
For the price and compared to the rest of the hotel, breakfast needs to be better.

I stayed at this hotel for a total of 8 nights (mix of business and pleasure) in March 2012 and I can highly recommend it for both business and leisure travellers.

The hotel has taken on a "green" philosophy in both style and functioning and has resulted in a wonderful setting that doesn't compromise on comfort. The rooms are not huge but beds are very comfortable and serene. The bathroom is a definite highlight - huge, with large bath/shower, heated towel rack and plenty of counter space (I loved the bathroom).

The staff is pleasant and accommodating - a friend was meeting me later in the week and they happily changed the same double room to a twin at a very minimal cost. They were also very knowledgeable and had plenty of good suggestions.

Hotel is very conveniently located next to central station with direct connections to 2 metro lines and about a half hour walk to the Duomo.

Only downsides were that the breakfast and food at the hotel (esp the coffee) are disappointing and the cleaning staff can be rather loud in the mornings.

All in all, a great find.

This hotel is conveniently located, the rooms are quite stylish and service acceptable. They serve a good breakfast, though the coffee takes some time.

The hotel was located conveniently next to the central station. The staff was professional and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful with a nice variety of foods. The room was nice and clean. Toilet is modern and clean.
Very poor connection for extremely high price internet. Free wifi is only on the public area, not in the room.

An oasis of print and colour from the reception, large printed graphics to warm minimal bedrooms, we stayed here on a business trip, located adjacent to central station, helpful and friendly team

We booked through hotel's official webpage when it was having a promotion after renovation. The rate was excellent.

Pros:
- It's just 2 minutes away from Milano Centrale. Close to train, metro and airport shuttle.
- Newly renovated and stylish decor.
- Very spacious and comfy lobby lounge
- Room is not particularly spacious but good enough. In-room amenities are practical.
- Generally helpful staffs
- Buffet breakfast included

Cons:
- No free in-room wifi. They'll give you 1 hour of free wifi in the lobby lounge. But definitely prefer web-surfing in the comfort of my own room...and unlimited.
- Couldn't find any English TV channel

Overall, it was a very pleasant stay and simply love the location.

The hotel stands right across Milano Centrale station (high speed trains to main Italian cities) i.e. an extremely convenient place for business and leisure. From outside the building is quite ordinary but the good surprise is inside. I liked the decoration, not so much in the lobby but in corridors and rooms. It is elegant and stylish, mixing dark colors with wood-like panels and making a smart use of lighting in the corridors. Rooms are clear and spacious with large closets and enough space to accommodate a sofa and a decently sized desk. The bathroom is well equiped with a very good shower. However, TV and entertainment systems are quite difficult to navigate and I couldn't find a TV guide or a notice in the room. Similar to other Starhotels free Internet is only available in the lobby which is rather unfortunate. Breakfast is good, offering a selection of food similar in size and quality to the one of other Starhotels. At peak check-out time service tends to be a little bit overwhelmed as it was difficult for me to get a clean table available. The same can be said of the front desk where I had to stand in line behind 3 or 4 persons before being attended. There should definitely be more employees at the front desk when most customers check out. But overall Starhotels E.c.h.o. (strange name indeed !!) is a place I would not hesitate to recommend in Milan.
