“A rare gem. 10 mins walk from central station. Über modern, über clean!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

This was a great find in Milan and we didn't expect to get as much value for money. We booked and we needed to change our booking on arrival, the management were very accommodating and worked their magic for us. The staff were friendly, the rooms super modern, super clean and the breakfast was great.

There is a friendly little bar just opposite towards the station that do great pizzas and cold beers.

If you can't walk 10 mins from the station, get a cab and stop complaining!

We stayed at this hotel because of the location in relation to milano centrale train station. The hotel is a ten/fifteen minute walk from the station and you basically follow the train line straight down and it is a turning on the left. You can get trains direct to Varenna in Lake como from centrale station which take just under an hour. There is an old tram near the hotel which you can do a tour around the city of Milan for 1.50 euros. The hotel is clean, staff are friendly and the breakfast is very good. It is not luxurious but is an ideal hotel for a few days.

After travelling for over three months, it was time for a rest and we found that at Hotel Biocity Milan.
The city of Milan looks poor and neglected, so did the outside of this hotel, so it was a pleasant surprise when we went inside, it has been refurbished with a very modern appearance , all the staff could not have been more helpful, especially Andrew on the front desk. The location is great for train travel and with the help of the hotel staff we found the good parts of Milan.

We stayed there for one night and it was excellent.It is only 15 minutes walk to the central station in a quiet area.The exterior building is old but inside you will see a totally renovated hotel with nice decoration.The room was about 20 sm with huge bed and modern bathroom.The beakfast area was nice and they had anything we wanted to eat.Everything was clean and the staff was friendly.The only bad thing is that there is no elevator.We recommend it.

A very nice hotel Recently renovated, spotlessly clean, large rooms, nice interior design, free wifi in the rooms. Don't let the exterior of the building disappoint you. Only 15 walk to the central station. A very good choice to stay in Milan.
PS. very important to us, we could have capuccino coffee (real capuccino coffee, not instant coffee) in the morning at no extra cost -you see we don't really like filter coffee or instant capuccino served at many hotels.

We only stayed one night, but will definitely come back to this hotel if we visit Milan again. The room was clean, new, well-designed and very pleasant overall. There was no bathtub but the shower area was large (compared to the other hotels we stayed at in Italy).

The free wifi was very welcome (no limit to the number of devices you can use). Breakfast was adequate. The staff was friendly and accommodating; they let us check in a little earlier and check out a little later =)

The only possible drawback may be the location; it's not in the centre of Milan city proper. However it's very near a subway station where you can reach the city centre in about 10-15 minutes. On our way there from Milan train station, with 2 heavy backpacks and various other luggages, we took about 10 minutes by foot; it's relatively easy to find.

Although the hotel itself does not have a restaurant, there are a few eating places nearby (the place just across the street from the hotel had great yet cheap food), so overall we had no issues with the location at all.
