I don't know what it is about Milan, but even the nice areas with the 4 star hotels look like they're in the ghetto. What I mean is, the street-side architecture is not spectacular and there is graffiti everywhere.
You shouldn't let that deter you, though! This hotel is nice and clean, good atmosphere, good air conditioning, and good service. We read some other reviews and based on them we asked for a room that was facing the garden. Apparently the street-side is quite noisy at night.
The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was good. You get a robe included in your stay.
The wellness is open during the day, not just at night like at Enterprise Hotel we also stayed at in Milan. It's got a nice sized pool, a steam room, sauna, and hot tub (which can only fit 2 people comfortably, the four of us was a squeeze). The strange thing is you have to wear a swim cap in the pool, which you can buy for 5 eur. The wellness was only $15 per couple, which was more reasonable than the other place we stayed as well. (In Italy it's normal to have free breakfast but have to pay for wellness, as we found out)
The breakfast was good, but not great. I'll just leave it at that.
The metro is a 5-minute stroll from the hotel. From there you can get to all the touristy spots you want.
There's a trattoria in the area that is said to have the best lasagna in the area according to Yelp. We sure thought so. (Sorry I don't remember the name of it).
