“Convenient location”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Stayed here simply because it was close to the Milano Centrale train station and we had to head to the airport around noon the next morning. Nothing special. Helpful front desk. Unfortunately no vending machine so bought water for 2e per bottle from the receptionist, which is way too much, but we got in late at night and I didn't feel comfortable looking for a shop at that time to save 2.6e on 2 water bottles. Breakfast is nice here. Rooms are simple.

Stayed June 2014, traveled with family

We chose this hotel because we had a one night layover in Milan before an early train trip to Venice the following morning. It was very convenient for this purpose and was also walking distance to the Milan Duomo and the fashion district, so we were able to visit these on our one afternoon/evening in Milan. The hotel was spartan but clean and adequate for our purpose, but I would not want to stay in our cramped quad room for a longer stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The WiFi did not reach our room and the lobby was too small to use for very long.

Adequate in terms of size, clean, good price for the area. Staff was fine. Very convenient location, walking distance to the train station. Be careful at night, some shady types hang around the area. Best to leave stuff in the room safe rather than walk around with valuables. Adequate breakfast, boiled eggs were most welcome. Unfortunately couldn't sleep well because the bedding had been washed in very strongly perfumed detergent. Even after hanging sheets out of open windows, smell remained. Smell was sickening. Also, could hear every word spoken by guests in nearby room in the middle of the night. They were speaking at normal volume, so didn't complain about them -- I guess the walls are very thin or something.

Stayed here for two nights. We were given log in details for wifi which is valid for 72 hours and didnt have to pay - was a speedy connection and had no problems. Room was a good size (we had a budget room) very clean and had a safe and air con. Was cleaned and towels replaced when we went out. Staff were helpful and breakfast was great. Only negative is location and noise - although we didnt use public transport, we wanted to walk everywhere but took a good 40 mins to the centre. However this is our own fault not the hotels! Noise was a joke - people do not think of others in the morning...they just go about their business slamming doors (it's very echoey) but again this is the other customers faults for not being considerate to others!!!

This hotel is cheap and conveniently located to the train station. The free breakfast is ok, not great. The coffee is crap for the city standards and there is no fresh fruit. The shower is so small that you can't bend over and pick up something if you drop it.

Despite other reviewers saying it is a quiet hotel, my experience was the opposite. I think they hire people to bang pieces of metal together in the courtyard all day and night. The rooms are not at all insulated from each other either.

Worst of all is the joke of a wifi service. They give you a unique login and pass that is supposed to be good for 72 hours, but their dhcp server makes you log back in constantly with that long and complicated login info. And when you are logged in the speed is terrible. They need to hire a competent IT service and provide smarter authentication that is less onerous on the guests.

Excellently located close to the Central train station. The single room on the ground floor was small but adequate for a 2 night stay. The ensuite was clean with hot water. Noises outside the window at night were disturbing but I didn't feel insecure. The wardrobe had plenty of hanging space and an abundance of coat hangers. Buffet style breakfast included boiled eggs and a variety of cereals and pastries. Cafés and restaurants can be found in nearby streets and the train station.
Reception staff were very helpful.

we stayed in Hotel Demo during our Italy trip in April 2012 for 2 nights. it located near main train station but walking distance around 10-15 mins, it seems not safe in night time, we 3 girls kept ALERT mode during the night time.

the room is very nice, have a garden view with a little terrace. but we stayed in the top floor, no lift, we were crazy on taking our big luggage to the room, no one helped us, we need to take the luggages separately, two gals took it each time. so consider another hotel with you have a big luggage.

Room price in Milano is very high, so it's seems cheaper price with such room, accetpable. have a private bathroom but no free wifi, u need to pay, one payment access one computer, cannot share, not cheap.

Room Tip: u better request a room in 1st floor if you have big luggages.
