“Just great - and close to the main station”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We've been in this hotel because we wanted to go to a concert in the San Siro Stadion beginning of June.

Since the hotel is just a short walk from the main station it is very easy to find and you don't need a taxi. It just took us a few minutes to check in and then we got the key to our room which was located on the 5th floor. The room was very nice with a wodden floor, a lot of space, plenty of space for clothes, TV and a bathroom which had enough space for the both of us.

The breakfast room was on the ground floor next to the bar. You could get there a continental breakfast with diff. kinds of bread, jam, butter, honey, juice fruits, water still/sparkling, eggs etc. On the 2 mornings we ate there, where many asian people. But beside that also guests from other european countries (Finland, England, Switzerland etc.).

The hotel itself is very modern and has a "green" touch (from an ecological point of view), which I like very much.

The service and everything there was realy perfect. If I have to mention something negativ it would only be the fact that I didn't like that the butter, jam etc. was not offered in a "open style (everything was wrapped seperately and therefore you had a lot of waste at the end). For me - that doesn't fit with the green touch they give themselves.
But as I said, beside that everything else was perfect and we had nothing to complain. So, therefore, I can recommend the hotel to everyone who is looking for a hotel
- close to the main station
- close to a taxi pick up
- close to the undergroundtrains
- which is modern and not too elegant but also with a very hip lobby

Room Tip: 5th floor was perfect for us

This beautiful hotel by the central train station is one of the nicest hotels that we stayed at during our recent trip to Europe. Not only is it the most eco-friendly of any hotel but the decor is quite modern and new. Loved everything about this hotel and would recommend it to anyone who is planning to stay in Milan

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms get bigger as you go up on a higher floor. We were on the fourth floor and it was...

Our two day stay was not long enough in Milan. Star hotel echo was in a perfect spot, tucked away across the park (a thirty second walk) from the huge gorgeous old railway station, centrale and close to walk to beaunos aires(great shopping street). The airport buses arrive and depart from the station.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating, keeping our bags all morning until a our room was ready. Rooms were modern, clean, nice and comfortable, good size with a large bathroom/robe area (even able to have a nice hot bath after a day using the hop on/hop off bus, Milan sightseeing, which stops across the road from the station).
Breakfast was good...all you could want to eat, before heading out to explore. Would definitely
Stay here again if we are ever lucky enough to visit Milan again!

This hotel blew my mind when I checked in. First of all it is directly across from the central train station where the airport buses drop you off and where you can catch the metro. You literally are facing the train station from the hotel. It was perfect! When we checked in our room wasn't available yet but they took our bags and had them waiting in our room when we returned later that afternoon. The front desk staff were superb and so helpful. They provided us with maps and detailed instructions on everything we needed.

The room was sleek, modern, and perfectly clean. The entire hotel felt brand spanking new. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom had a wonderful vanity and great shower.

The only reason I am giving it four stars is because of the internet. In order to have internet in your room you would have had to pay six euros for 24 hours which I felt was a ridiculous price to pay. Then if you wanted to use it in the lobby you could get a code from the front desk and even then you only got 30 minutes free. I just personally feel that today you should provide either a better rate or free internet throughout the entire hotel. I understand that this is a preference though.

Located just by the main rail station and a couple of hundred metres or so from the airport buses and metro station, this is a very convenient location for exploring Milan.

The hotel is modern, clean and functional. rooms are a fair size, though oddly lacked drawers. An iron and ironing board would also have been useful, as too would have been face cloths.

Breakfast, whilst more than ample, was unimaginative and the bar at night lacked atmosphere, although a selection of free canapes was offered.

Staff were generally friendly and were especially helpful in helping us get our luggage to the bus, when we were leaving.

internet was Euro 6 a day in the rooms or free in the lobby, if you requested a half hour voucher from reception.

Room Tip: In summer, it might be worth requesting a room with a balcony on the upper floors.

This hotel has a great value for money : offering spacious room with beautiful, luxuous and modern decoration, this hotel has reasonable price.
The bed is comfortable and if you are high enough, you have a great view on the place around.
The central station is close and the staff really friendly
