“Big Bummer”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Booked this as our final stop in Italy. Confirmed air conditioning and got none.
No screens either...bug city. The location was just a bummer...the 24 hour desk staff was very nice and that was good. Everything else listed as amenities was really terrible.

Room Tip: get your money back when you roast in your room and leave with dozens of bug bites from the windows...

very nice hotel for 2-3 night stay. Clean rooms, balcony, normal breakfast (not a big choice so but good if you stay 3 days there). Location is reasonable, by foot 20min to Duomo. Don't expect 5* hotel if you pay 50 euros! Very good hotel for 2 star quality. Will stay there again!

We took advantage of a very cheap offer (45 euros for a night). The hotel is in a very good location, near Palestro metro stop and Corso Venezia, but of course nothing special. You get whay you pay: tiny rooms, a tiny bathroom, yet everything was ok except for a few hair in the blankets. Staff is friendly but talks loud during the morning and you can hear it from the room. Continental breakfast is enough.

This hotel is pretty far from Milano Centrale. However, instead of taking a taxi or the metro (like we did), take the tram that stops right outside the station. It takes you a block away from the hotel. Which brings me to the location. It is excellent for seeing the center of the city. It's about 5-7 blocks from a street that takes you right through the center of Milan. We easily walked there and back. There is a supermarket two blocks away, which was nice.

When we first arrived, the reception-guy was very nice. He was accommodating and helpful with our questions. However, the second day there was a less-than-helpful guy. He almost mocked us when we couldn't open our room door (granted, it was silly, but he was very rude about it) and wasn't helpful in regards to our questions. I didn't catch names, but he looked younger with lighter hair than the main reception-guy.

Our room was literally 10 feet from reception, which was convenient but a little noisy at times. Our room was fairly clean. A big problem was the wifi, which was very spotty. I would have expected better wifi service for a room so close to reception.

Overall, for 106€ for two nights and very close to the center of Milan this was a great choice. They could improve on a few things but overall I enjoyed my stay.

Doesn't cost much, so don't expect too much. Beds were comfortable, sheets and towels clean and (most important to me) the location was great. Staff could be nicer though (a smile goes a long way), bathroom could be free of mold and install some new shower doors. Breakfast is mediocre, but gets you through the morning. Decent, very decent hotel, especially price/quality wise so close to the center of the city (15 - 20 min walk to the Duomo).

Clean rooms with good location and good price. It was very basic but fine for one night. We like to walk to explore the city we are visiting and this hotel was great for that. Free breakfast is basic, but good.

Clean and well-staffed hotel, our room was small but otherwise comfortable. Be sure to take the tram that stops outside the hotel to get to the train station or southern parts of the city, otherwise it is a 15 minute walk to the Duomo/central area.
