“Comfortable, Good Location, Kind Staff”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Just a few blocks from Milano Centrale, the location of the Bernina couldn't be better for people traveling by train as we were. We actually enjoyed the walks into the centro storico for sightseeing and dinner. The bedroom was small but comfortable and the bathroom was roomy, sparkling clean and brand new, though its narrow width might put some people off. The desk clerk was extremely helpful, locating the Bosco Verticale on the map for us so we could go to see it, giving us good restaurant recommendations, making us feel very welcome. The young woman who ran the breakfast room also very kindly lent us stemmed glasses and a corkscrew for a special wine we'd brought to welcome friends who joined us there. The only real flaw in the place was the lack of free WiFi (it was 5 euro a day), which seemed strange in a business town like Milan. Be sure to check out "Drew's Blues Café" up the street at via Torriani Napo 3. They have Illy coffee and fresh brioche in the mornings, wine and snacks in the evenings, served by the best bartenders/baristas in the city!

The hotel was undergoing renovation so the place was kind of messy. Old small rooms, extra small shower (even for a 45 kg person), basic breakfast. Ok-ish for overnight stay due to proximity of Milano Centrale

This hotel is about 10 mins walk from Milano Centrale, and we stayed in a recently renovated room with renovated bathroom so the condition is very good. The floor boards have been renovated as well. Personally I don't see a reason to visit Milan for more than one day however this hotel is actually better than some transit hotels and can be stayed for more than one night.

As a budget hotel within walking distance of Milan Central train station, it provides a fairly compelling proposition for those tourists using Milan as a base for train trips to near by areas. Hotel facilities are very basic, but the staff is helpful and upkeep, quite OK. The hotel surroundings are clean, but there is next to no life after the evening hours. Restaurant options too are fairly limited.

Room Tip: Some rooms seem to have impractical bath rooms. Try to avoid them.

No air-con, no electric water heater, no coffee-making machine, no drinking water provided and no free Wi-Fi. I wonder how you can survive in the hotel during the summer months. Hotel Bernina Milan is an ultra basic budget hotel that is only suitable if you're staying for one night for a train transit at Milan Central Station.

Room is clean by Italian standards but very small and service standard is pathetic. Look for other hotels if you're looking for more than 1 night stay in Milan.

Nice connection to Milan centrale. A good desigion for few nights but not more. Not very expensive for single room - 40 euro by night (do not forget that we are in Milan) Not amazing sirvice is ordinary for transit hotels like this one.

The hotel is just around the corner from Milan Central station which is perfect when you are dragging around heavy luggage. The staff were friendly at check in and gave us a map which was helpful as well as free wifi (although it does say that it usually costs 2 euro). The one lift is very old fashioned & doesn't fit more than one person with luggage but it moves pretty quickly. Our room was right outside the lift and it got a little noisey when people were coming in late or heading out early. The room was very good, nice and spacious with a very clean bathroom and comfortable beds. There were a few good restaurant options around the corner but we basically just used this hotel as a stop over.
