“Good value and location with very entertaining lifts!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is a good value hotel for central Milan, within easy walking distance of many sights. The rooms are fine, beds quite comfortable; although the bathrooms are on the small side, the shower has reasonable power. Overall, the service was good and the breakfast had quite a good spread with excellent coffee.

I have rated this hotel as 3 rather than 4 stars for 2 reasons: firstly, despite all the double glazing, the traffic noise can be quite intrusive for the street-facing rooms. Secondly, the wi-fi connection is so slow as to make it practically useless.

Finally, the tiny elevators are quite entertaining with their juddering doors!

Compared to other hotels in Milan, this was relatively cheap, so we opted for a Junior Suite and were anxious to see what quality we got.
Everything lived up to our expectations: The room was large, the bed big (and quite firm) and the breakfast buffet was wonderful & plentiful. The nice waitresses makes the coffee just as you want it, so the espresso mashine is huffing and puffing away all morning.
After a 15 minute stroll along the Porto Romano street with lots of shops, you are at the Duomo; the heart of Milan.

Had a lovely stay at the Romana Residence. Our room was lovely, pleasant atmosphere in the hotel and a good location for us (we walked to the Duomo most days). The breakfast was very good, I looked forward to it every day, especially the cappuccinos!! Our room was a little too hot at night due to the heating system (and we didn't ask the reception about it) but nice and quiet. Very nice little hotel and great value.

Lovely hotel right in the centre of Milan and near the metro station. Very professional and helpful staff, elegant surroundings.Rooms were to a good standard : Minibar, TV,Hairdryer, Safebox etc. and the breakfast was lovely- typical Italian fare, fresh and lots of choice and all self service.Just beware that it is extrememly packed at weekends!

The hotel is quite central and walking distance from the metro, a good thing in a city where you do not want to drive.
The room I had was very spacious and quiet, even though on the first floor. The bathroom was comfortable and the offered shampoo, based on Argan oil, a very pleasant surprise.
For anybody interested by the TV, I suppose it could have been bigger.
The breakfast was good for a european (but I like something more substantial).
All in all, for a couple of nights it is fine and the price reasonable.

For the rates charged, this hotel is well worth the money in an expensive city.

The room was comfortable, though not luxurious and the complimentary breakfast was more than I expected.

More importantly, the location is excellent, a short walk or cab ride from the Duomo and the Last Supper. I'm not sure I could stay for an entire week but for my short two-night stay in Milan, I got plenty of bang for my buck.

I booked this hotel based on the star rating, and was highly disappointed when I checked in. The outside looked okay, but the inside was far from a 4-star standard. The lift was tiny, itcould only accomodat two people along with one large suitcase at a timewhich meant repeat trips between our room and the lobby to bring up our luggage. The lift also had nosensorso closed kn my arm whilst I was trying to haul out my luggage. The room was book for two people and had two bathrooms & two rooms. There were a few random dormant doors, not surewhat the purpose of these were! The room was ugly and out-dated; the furnishings and decor looked like they were straight of of the 70's or 80's? Not at all what i paid for pr wanted from a hotel in the fashion capital of the world! I decided to grin and bear it, but breakfast the next day was equally as bad as the decor....there was minimal choice and it was quite unappetising. I had coffee and went in search of an alternate breakfast cafe on the second and third mornings i spent in Milan. Unless you want a stale room, with poor quality service and unpalatable breakfast, avoid this hotel!!
