I needed a place to stay overnight prior to a very early flight out of Linate. When I went to book a hotel, I found there was a soccer event of some kind for that weekend and there were almost no rooms to be had at any price: even hostels were charging 100 Euros for a dorm! Hotel Perugino was about the best deal I could find, plus I figured being so close to Linate, I'd save on cab fare to make up part of it. So I booked a single (breakfast included) for 200 Euros. (Trust me, I NEVER pay that much for hotels!). I think it's rated a 3 star, but I'd probably give it 2-2.5.
The room was very basic, but the single bed was quite comfortable. The weather was fairly warm that evening and humid and I had put the A/C on at the highest level but barely felt anything. The bathroom was clean, and not too small, with reasonable shelf space for toiletries. The gentleman on the reception desk was friendly and spoke English well; he provided some options on where to get something to eat (by that time it was after 10 PM). I left very early in the morning, so can't speak to the breakfast. I am betting that during non-peak times, the rates here are quite reasonable, and the neighborhood felt OK, with lots of shops and restaurants close by.
I can say that the hotel staff went the extra mile to help me out of a tight spot. I'd had my wallet (with all cash and cards) stolen boarding the train to come in to Milan. I called my credit card company and they got the hotel to agree to charge a new card over the phone without me having to physically present it...otherwise I don't know where I'd have slept. So...perhaps that was the best 200 Euros I may ever spend; not sure all hotels would have be as helpful.
