The Lancaster feels like a family run hotel. Everyone is welcoming, helpful and friendly and the location is perfect if, like us, you like to walk in the cities you are touring. It is situated a pleasant stroll through the park from the centre of town with numerous cafes and bars nearby - perfect for that welcome aperitivi at sunset! There is a tram stop nearby for when the weather may be inclement or the feet too sore to stroll. The buffet breakfast is standard European hotel fare - croissants, cheeses, meats, toastettes etc - all fresh and the fruit salad appears homemade. Cadorna station is the closest Metro and you can also catch the express train to the airport from there. It is a short cab ride away. It cost us 5 Euro from the taxi rank at the station to the hotel and around 10 going the other way because of the call out fee and traffic. Too easy! The only problem I had was that it seemed our room had once been a smoking room and there was a bit of a lingering odour but I have a sensitive nose. My partner couldn't discern it all all and it dissipated as soon as the room was opened up to the air anyway. All in all, a good place to stay. It's not five star luxury, it's a dependable, clean and well run hotel in a good location. You're not next to the Duomo, but do you really want to be?
