At about 100 Euro a night for a double room, Atahotel Linea Uno offers an economical accommodation in generally expensive Milan. The rooms themselves are quite basic, but clean and in good working order. The more expensive rooms have a small kitchenette for preparing simple meals or heating them up. We booked two double rooms, expecting them to be close together, but they gave us one room on level 7 and the other on level 1. Just a small inconvenience, though.
Room rates usually include breakfast, which is served in a small communal room on the ground floor. Don't expect a sumptuous selection... only a few options available (bread and pastry, cereals, boiled eggs, yogurt, and some cold cuts from which I really liked the prosciutto crudo), but it's enough to start your day.
The "Atahotel" is an Italian chain hotel, and from the booklet in the room, some of the other branches look significantly plusher. This one has a depressing exterior (grey and rather old). "Linea Uno" refers to the metro line 1, which passes through the "Turro" stop just in front of the hotel. This makes it very practical to use public transport to go to the touristy parts of Milan (the Duomo stop is on the same line), or to go to the Central Station (different metro line but you can easily change).More
