“Amazing stay, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Stayed for a few days in their newest room. The property is very clean and well preserved. The new rooms are astonishing, even though we've been in the only one at the time. The price for this is totally worth, and it's a quick walk away from the center, about 15 min to the Dome.
I would totally go back when I get the chance.

Spent a night here whilst seeing Milan.

Hotel is a 20-25 minute straight walk to the Duomo. Public transport (metro) right outside the hotel if you should choose to skip the walk!

Room was tiny - had the small double room.. and boy was it small! Since we only spent 1 night here, it was fine.

The spa was quite good - you get two hours free if you are staying in the hotel. It had a sauna, steam room, rain shower, hamman, pool, etc. Quite relaxing after a long day of sightseeing!

Dinner in the hotel restaurant was ok- overpriced and not great. Can find better restaurants in the area.

The breakfast was divine.. had everything you could ask for. Eggs, sausages, bacon, bread, cakes, muffins, patisserie, cereals, etc. etc!

There is a parking lot just around the corner for EUR 25 a day - about 500m from the hotel.

Would stay here again!

Stayed for five days last June and have to admit it is a very well preserved property. Although some reviews claim the rooms are small, I think they are regularly sized (average European) and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was cleaned twice a day. I was allocated on the 2nd floor and, as requested before arrival, with view to the main street Corso Buenos Aires. It was very quiet, indeed. Street noise, of an anyway vivid city, never bothered me. The staff was attentive, always willing to provide directions and answer questions. Delicious breakfast reached very high standards. Honestly, the finest scrambled eggs, ever had! WI-fi worked properly every day and the air-conditioning system was adequate for the high summer temperatures during my stay. Spa facility was very nice. Duomo was an easy 20-25 minutes on foot. Underground station is just outside the hotel, only a few footsteps away. Many nice cafes and restaurants located near the hotel, with reasonable prices. Definitely, the area is a shopping destination. Overall, would love to return sometime and certainly recommend this hotel to everybody.

Room Tip: First floor rooms apparently "feel" the noise and vibrations of the underground running be...

We stayed for 4 nights. As located in Corso Buenos Aires, only 10 ~ 15 mins to the central station by walk, and similar distance to Monte Napoleone. Plus, the hotel itself is in the middle of shopping street.
2-hr free Spa experience was also great, and staff service was helpful.
I am definitely booking this hotel again if there is a chance to visit Milan.

We stayed for 6 days which was above average for typical stay at this place. Usually people go there for shopping or work for 2-3 days. Rooms are rather small... even Superior which is type of room we had. Superior on the highest 5th floor is very noisy at night so i presume that every room to the street is noisy because of traffic from wide street below - somehow this street is also the main route for many ambulances (Italy have probably the noisiest ambulance cars ever), typicaly 2-3 every evening. Rooms have very thin walls - you can literaly hear every word from the room next to you. This is a big disadvantage however one of the few.

Service is very good, perfect restaurant downstairs. Prices are not very high especially if you compare it with normal restaurant in the area. Pasta is around 10 Euro, main meal is around 15-20 Euro, bottle of wine is around 20 too, which is normal price around there so I recommend to at least try hotel restaurant.

Spa is small but very relaxing, guests get 2 hours free every day. Try it earlier in the day, you will be there alone, relaxed and you can go shopping later. Definitely strategy you want.

Superior room have free mineral water, free room service and 10% discount from restaurant. However room have almost none improvements beside this so it is probably not worth the extra money. (if you do not want your breakfast and dinner to your bed in room every day:)

At the end of our stay I was charged for all mineral water from minibar, no discount from restaurant and all service too. After compain from our side they of course made all these discounts and made a new bill but it was very unprofessional since I personally asked about all the services the same person who did the checkout bill. Be careful about this.

Still it was very decent stay worth the money.

Room Tip: Very noisy rooms to the street.

The staff were most helpful and breakfast was more than adequate, we stayed with daughter in 3 bedded room, the deco is a bit old & tired looking certainly is ready for a make over new bed covers & brightening up, the bathroom is acceptable and reasonable.
Location is great a 10 min walk from Duomo,.

It's quite near a metro station, and the cathedral is in walk-distance (say 15-20min probably).
The variety of breakfast is good enough for me. They serve coffee/tea in a pot. Cappuccino is also available. I'd like to stay here again!!
