Although smallish, our room was comfortable and quiet, despite Galles's location on Corso Buenos Aires, a major shopping street (we were on the 1st floor on the side street-request it).
The hotel's location is, as others have noted, excellent -- the Red line Lima station is only steps away (4 stops to Duomo).
The pool is too small for laps, the photo being somewhat deceptive (it's shot with a wide-angle lens), and the gym is too warm for serious exercise ( it should be 20C). Oddly, and I commented on this item to management, there is no cold water in the gym area; only hot tea. Who drinks hot tea when exercising? Breakfast, 6 flights up is decent. The machine-made cappuccino works well if you add an extra shot of espresso,
We stayed there twice, and would stay again.
BTW, Milan has what must be the world's most expensive taxi fares ( > 90 euros to Malpensa). We took the express train in to Milan Centrale (around 10 euros), a 10 minute walk to the hotel, but a car service to the airport at a flat 95 euro rate. The Hertz location is also near Milan Centrale, which adds to the convenience of Galles's location.
