“A good base in Milan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Close to Loreto metro station, this hotel is a good base for seeing Milan. The rooms were grand and clean, en-suite was clean, continental breakfast was good. Staff were friendly and good enough value. All in all a good hotel.

My friends and I stayed here for 2 nights. We chose it because it was cheap and close to a very good metro stop. I took a single room and my friends, a twin. The rooms were very basic.

Pros: nice reception, felt safe, clean, changed sheets and towels daily, good coffee at breakfast, nice pastries, fair price, access to everything using the loreto metro.

Cons: weak showers, my room smelled of smoke and it was non smoking, tiny single beds, thin walls, hot food at breakfast was not appealing at all, area wasn't great.

It's a good price for milan, which is an expensive city, but I couldn't say the stay was pleasurable. It is fine if you just need a clean bed in safe hotel, near a good metro. If you like home comforts this is not the place for you.

Definitely worth staying at this hotel. The staff are friendly and are very helpful and welcoming. It's not far from one of the main tube lines and there's a lot of bars and restaurants near.

The only reason this rating isn't a 5* is because of building work being carried out whist we stayed - which, apart from Sunday, started at around 8am! We were in one of the newly renovated rooms and they are very nice and comfortable and have some nice features.

If i go back to Milan I'd happily stay in this hotel again.

My family stayed in a room for 3 people for one night in Milan while travelling through and Hotel San Francisco was a great place. Our room was very clean and bright and the bathroom was very nice with a great shower. The breakfast was very tasty - much better than any other hotel breakfast we've encountered during our month in Italy. Lots of options. There was a working elevator, which was appreciated after a long day of travel. The staff was very kind and welcoming, even keeping our luggage for us for several hours while we did some last sightseeing before taking off. We appreciated the clean, comfortable rooms and hospitality.

The hotel is situated near Citta Studi, so it is not ideal for those who only want to stay within walking distance of the city center. Although, the hotel can be easily reached by metro and buses. We had probably the best room of the hotel, one with a balcony. The room was kept very clean, the only drawback was that being situated in the third floor it took some time to get hot water.
Breakfast was continental-type, and served with frienly personnel.
All in all, I would visit the hotel again.

Very nice and friendly staff, always ready to help. Our balcony went right into a wonderful garden. Room was clean and cozy. Very tasty breakfasts.Close to metro station. I'm going to stay here again.
The only trouble - WifFi worked bad and slowly

Close to Loreto station on the Milan Metro, the hotel is a good value for 60eur on a quiet street that is near lots of interesting places.

The hotel was undergoing renovations during our stay, but that was only in the lobby, which didn't affect us much. The bathroom seemed to be updated, but the room hadn't yet. Cleanliness is definitely a priority, and it was much appreciated.

Breakfast was the unexpected star of the show: Lots of fruits, cereals, meats, cheeses, eggs, bread, and bacon. To add to that, the staff would bring us a fresh coffee as soon as we sat down.

Much appreciated and recommended!
