Monopole de la Gare
Ranked #365 of 431 Hotels in Milan
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Hotel Monopole is situated 2 minutes walk from the Milan's main train station, which is also one of the transition points for the subway. It's 3 subway stations (30 minutes walk) from the old city, which makes it perfect starting point for sightseeing.

The hotel is quite old (narrow elevator being one of the cons), but the room was OK (precisely what we expected). We did not use the restaurant so I'm unable to review the quality. The only major problem was very thin walls between the rooms - we have woke up at night hearing voices so clearly, as is someone was in our room:(

Clean sheets & towels every day, oldish look & smell of the room, TV, clean bath, overall ok. Very good breakfast for 6 euros, continental, fruit & coffee included. Free wifi, even though a little rough connection at first. Found a moth cocoon in the bed cover, could be cleaner. Close to the train, bus, tram, metro Milano Centrale station. 30 min walk or 10 min tram to Dome. Stayed for 2 days so it's ok. This is also close to Malpensa bus stop.

Room Tip: Rooms above the reception are noisy, as they overlook the main street.

Really 3* hotel with very good breakfast (fruits, juice, ham, eggs, cheese, sweets etc.). MiniRefrigerator instead of mini-bar (but not in each room), safe in each room. 3 mins. by step to Milano Centrale and metro. 40 minutes by metro to Rho-Fiera.
A plenty of restaurants and local food stores around.
So, the only troubles were the trams under the window.
My recomendation: this hotel is more and more better than Cristallo or San Carlo.
Highly recommend for any type of visit.

Room Tip: Room 702 - good single, but with a refrigerator

Even if for only one night, we have had a wonderful stay here: friendly staff (our reservation was for a lowe price/category room, they switched with a better one, with balcony, for only EUR15 extra). Perfect location, near the railway main station, with all type of restaurants around. Nice and very clean room, with a large bathroom. Breakfast quite "spartan". The only unpleasant thing was the way to reach, with luggage, the 7th floor, by taking two elevators and crossing a large hall, but we survived! We'd like to come back!
