Reviewed September 27, 2013

Nice hotel. Decent location. Well priced. No kettle which is always a bit of a letdown for a Brit. Reception staff very helpful and informative. Poor wifi in room. Room also a little bit scruffy. Breakfast not very good except for the coffee. Only one towel in room on first night.

I have been to Hotel Liberty because of the security a 4 stars hotel should guarantee and I ended up in a flophouse. Bad service, No bar working, Old and dirty room and expensive.
I am surprise the hotels inspector didn't reduce the stars rate.
Please avoid this bad experience and highway robbery.

Room Tip: AVOID! don't waste your money, choose another

Good position for the Bocconi University, but that is about it. Very old, expect for the hall, the only restructured part. The room are dirty and with old furniture, the price is outrageous, 170€ for a night. Luckily I had to stay only for one night, I will never go back

The positive aspects are the location and the breakfast. The hotel is located very close to Bocconi University and Porta Romana. For breakfast you can choose among a wide variety of food.

On the whole, it was a terrible stay and I don't recommend Hotel Liberty at all. Even though it is a four stars hotel, rooms are not furnished with air- conditioning. The problem is that reading the booking confirmation it is clearly written that the hotel provides customers with climatized rooms. It was so hot we hardly slept and we had to keep the window open the all night (with the traffic noise from Viale Bligny). The hotel staff did not do anything for the unacceptable inconvenient.
Moreover, everything is extremely dated (from the elevator to the bathroom in our room) except for the hall.
Finally, it's not value for money. We paid €110 for a service which is worth much less.

I have just returned from three nights at The Hotel Liberty. I chose it as I needed to be in the area of Porta Romana so it was convenient for me. The walk to the metro is about 5 minutes and that was also a plus.
Continuing with the pluses I have to admit that the staff were friendly and helpful, especially the ladies in the restaurant at breakfast. Talking of which there was always a good selection of fresh fruit, cold meats, cheeses, muesli etc.
On the negative I had a room at the front and it was noisy with the tram going past. Also the bathroom was just horrible. There was a 'hydro' bath with yellowed jets that were full of limescale and the shower attachment was low so it was uncomfortable to shower and I certainly wasn't prepared to have a bath for fear of bacteria!
The lightbulbs made a buzzing sound in the bedroom and it was all very dated.
By day 3 the bathroom had a faint smell of urine....it made me imagine the cleaner putting her mop in the loo, it was quite gross!
They say they have wi-fi in the lobby but the reception was terrible and I could only pick it up on my iPad when I was standing by the front desk.
I can't pass comment on the bar as I didn't see anyone serving but I wouldn't have chosen to spend more time than necessary in the place!
All in all it is not a place I would wish to return to and even though I got a good deal through Travel Republic it was still too much. I just thank the heavens that I didn't pay the 'going' rate, I would have been truly resentful!

My daughter and I stayed at Hotel Liberty. We had booked using vouchers. As we arrived we were told by reception "Oh yes, you cancelled". Therefore we had to pay to stay, one night while the mistake was rectified. We were continually assured that the matter was being delft with and would be sorted by time we checked out. However, on checking out we were told we had to pay for the other four nights. As we had already paid the voucher price, we refused and were told if we attempted to leave the police would be called. After we informed staff that we had a train to catch we were told if we wished to leave we must leave our suitcases in the hotel. We asked staff to contact the company yet the matter was not resolved for two hours, after which the manager told us "You just go now". We did no receive an apology.

I was in Milan to take part in the convention. I have registered to the hotel through Venere service - 2 persons for 4 nights. I was trying to change my reservation for single occupancy few weeks before my arrival and again when I arrived (my wife have not joined me) but I was refused, so I had to pay for 2 though I stayed alone. When I got to the room the air conditioning was not working. There were no instructions about anything in the room. After going back and forth to the reception 3 times they finally sent someone. It turned out that the central air conditioning is broken, but there is a small air conditioner installed which can be turned on and off, but no possibly to control the temperature.
Then I found that the toilet flushing is causing a water leak from the tap, and that was not fixed till I left. The bed was just terrible - one of the 2 mattresses was so old that you could feel every spring in it, the other was slightly better. The WiFi was not working during the last 2 days. The room lock was so bad, I almost got stuck inside once.
To conclude, it was a terrible experience. Do not approach this hotel if you want to enjoy Milano.
