We stayed in Hotel Sanpi for 3 nights in May. The room was excellent, bed and bedlinen top quality and spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were absolutely amazing, best we have had in Italy.
Staff at the desk were extremely helpful giving maps and directions. Excellent location.

Ask for the courtyard rooms, I do not know how the sleep quality in the street side would be. The service was great, rooms clean and tastefull

We stayed in the Hotel Sanpi for 2 nights while in Milan. We found the staff at the front desk very helpful, which was a relief as we were 3 women on our first time in Italy. The front desk staff supplied a map of the city & circled where the hotel was located & also gave us one of their business cards in case we got lost. They also pointed out all the relevant sights to see in the city of Milan. The room we had was & triple & it was very comfortable & had air conditioning. The hotel was located about a 10-15min walk from the Duomo. There were quite a number of restaurants in the area which was convenient. There was a supermarket & taxi rank located around the corner from the hotel. There was also public gardens 5mins walk from the hotel if you wanted to go for a morning run or walk. The breakfast was very good, with a great range of items to choose from. They have a little courtyard which our room looked out onto & you could have happy hour or dinner there. The only point I would make is that during the day we noticed a lot of Africans around in the street that the hotel is located in & we didn't feel comfortable walking down the street at night. But overall this hotel was great, the staff are friendly & helpful & the location is pretty good.

The hotel is about 15 to 20 minutes walk from the Central station and 5 minutes from the Porta Venezia underground station. It is in a side street so there is relatively little traffic noise. Our room was a little small but OK - it was very clean, however the airconditioning didn't cool the room. The breakfast was very nice with a reasonable choice of things. The hotel staff were really friendly, polite and helpful. There is a small but nice internal courtyard where you can have a drink. There is also a fitness room with around 5 types of gym machines.

I went to Hotel Sanpi many times for business. Every single time the staff was welcoming, that is the first very good point of the hotel.

Single rooms come in two size. Small ones located next to the elevator of each floor come with a small bed but has a nicer bathroom and a space made for placing your suitcase and open it easily (very practical). Bigger ones are in the middle of the floor with a slightly bigger bed (about 110cm wide) but I was disappointed by the bathroom, it has some mistake in its design. The toilets are placed to close from the sink making very difficult to sit on it comfortably. The stupid this is that the bidet is next to the toilet seat with plenty of space in front of it but almost nobody use a bidet anymore so it's a waste of space in my opinion. In addition of that the room have absolutely no place to put your suitcase except maybe on the minibar fridge but this one is warming so much that I wouldn't recommend to place anything on it !
I've also experienced double room and twin room. The size is of course bigger and I don't remember having problem in the bathroom like in the other room.

In general the comfort of the room is good, the bed could have been better but there are not so bad. The room are well equipped with closet, safe, flat screen TV (but only a few channels in Italian en German and no more than a couple of channel in other language (English, French), it's poor knowing that cheaper hotels have Sky satellite in Milan. The bathroom is equipped with a very big mirror (in every room I went), hair dryer, a bidet (if someone still using it), liquid bath soap, shampoo, body lotion, 2x hand soap, shower cap, shoes sponge, slippers, dressing gown, bath carpet and a set of towel of course.
You can also ask for a WiFi connection in your room, the price is expensive but the connection speed is very good.

The breakfast is good, a lot of choice with "Italian brioche" (like croissants filled with marmalade, cream or chocolate), bread, toast, cereals, Italian morning snacks, many fruits, cooked meats, cheese and 3 different fruit juice, tea, hot chocolate and coffee (but with a self working machine, not real Italian coffee). In addition of that you can order special meals but at an additional cost.
The Hotel also have a bar with an experimented and friendly barman that will make your favorite cocktails and recommend you the best restaurants to eat.

Finally the location. The hotel is on a quite street, so even on the street side I was never woken up by noise. However the neighborhood are filled with interesting restaurant of every type and reasonable budget (Italian, Chinese, Argentine,...) and you can walk to the train main station within 10-15min and to the Corso Buenos Aires within 5min (From there you can go shopping for a while with all the branded shops and get the metro red line to the Domo). Another plus, almost every taxi in Milan know this hotel, so even if you don't remember the address you have a great chance to be driven directly to the right place.

Loved the decor of the newly redone room! It was very clean, quiet and safe for a single woman traveling alone. It was close to all the major sights and there were places to eat within a block.
