“Rooms Leave Something to Be Desired”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Our first room was so smokey smelling that my wife went to the front desk and asked for a different room. To the hotel's credit, they were very accommodating and gave us a new room. Unfortunately, that room was only marginally different. With the air conditioner running (and it has to in Milan's summer heat), our room smelled a bit like truck exhaust fumes. The room was dimly lit, and the shower head sprayed water out the top of the shower stall.

On the plus side, the location truly is great. It is only minutes walk to the Castle, the Duomo, or the Cadorna train station.

We spent two nights here in July and like most others are saying, it's in a pretty perfect location. Everything is within an easy walk and Milan Centrale and Cadorna train stations are both within two miles. The staff was very pleasant, but the hotel left a lot to be desired. It was definitely older in style, most furnishings seemed from the 70's, the room was small, the door pretty flimsy and could have been easily broken through if someone wanted to, and the bed was horribly hard and uncomfortable. That being said and sans much sleep, we had no problems at all while we were there, but I wouldn't stay there again. If I could, I'd give it a 2+ for service and no problems, but it's not a 3 as it didn't meet the average of other places we stayed in Europe, but it's an ok place if you're looking for location at a cheap price.

PROS
Location - about a 5-10 minute walk to the durmo
Service- the front desk was sooo friendly, she printed the ticket I forgot to print from home, gave us directions several times, set up our transportation to the airport, couldn't be nicer.

CONS
The bed- it was the most uncomfortable bed in our 2 week trip and my husband and I had difficulty falling to sleep on it.

Overall, it is a 2 star hotel, with a great location, staff and price, but if it was more than a one night stay I would have stayed somewhere where I could get a good nights sleep.

Fantastic location! Around the corner from Via Dante pedestrian street with restaurants and shops, and very short walk to metro, the Castello, Hop-on-hop-off start, and also short walks to Duomo and Brera districts.
Because of guest reviews we were prepared for this, so it is not a complaint: small rooms and bathrooms, for sure, but it is clean. Its 2-star rating reflects on this fact, and that it does not offer free wifi, nothing else in my opinion. I stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels where I had a problem with housekeeping, but never here. Friendly staff as well.
Tip for travellers in height of Summer - mosquito season!! Take precaution when going out, we did not not know and by the time we bought repellant form the pharmacy, it was too late.

Room Tip: For family with children: we booked 2 rooms which was next to each other, and it worked out fine. It...

First the good news, the hotel is cheap and the location is great. It is in the center of everything you need to walk to. Now the bad news, you have to sleep there. The hotel looked old and wasn't upkept. The door to the hotel room was one of those cheap hollow ones and it wasn't securely lockable. Do not leave anything of value in there if you go out. The room / carpet smelled very musty and looked dirty. We had to keep the windows open all the time to let it air out. We didn't see any bugs, but we took precautions and kept our clothes sealed up. We do not recommend this hotel and would not stay here again.

The hotels location is amazing! right in the center. minutes walk. The stuff id friendly and recommended places to go. Rooms are very small and also bathroom. Very small! not all rooms have bathroom inside so check before you book.
I would say it is good value return.

Room Tip: Check if the room has inside bathroom.

This is the kind of hotel comedians make jokes about. My room was about 8x10 feet; so small that there was not even room for a chair. Bathroom and shower each about the size of a closet and both crude. Tiny TV with no remote! Most staff speak no English. Nice area of Milan, but the thought of coming back to that room was so depressing. Stay away if you possibly can.
