“Excellent Family run property in the centre of Milan!”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

Having just come back from a 5 night stay at the 22 Marzo hotel, I can safely say that they exceeded all our expectations. Michele and his family run this property perfectly. Their hospitality and friendliness is certainly something one cannot put a price tag on. Having arrived a few minutes before the room was ready, Michele treated me and my two travelling buddies to an espresso and a bottle of water. He also gave us a map, and told us how to get around with the local transport etc. There's a bus stop in the square just outside the hotel. Buses run every 4-5 mins all day till late. It takes about 10 mins to get the Duomo by bus, or a 20 min walk. We opted for the latter choice most of the time as its a pleasant stroll, there are plenty of shops along the way, and its a great way to people watch. If you're visiting to watch a football game, it takes about 45 mins, by public transport, to get to San Siro. The staff at the hotel will tell you how to get there.

The room was spacious, and it came with an en suite bathroom. Rooms were cleaned everyday, and towels changed too. WIFI in the room never let us down, and the AC was a godsend. An elevator is also available.

Breakfast was a pleasant surprise too! Normal, affordable, hotels in Italy usually have a limited selection of items on the buffet. This 2 star property however has 4 different types of cereal, 3 different types of croissants ( or brioche as the Italians refer to them), 2 different pastries (usually a jam tart and a pain au raisin), a nice selection of bread, as well as cheese and ham. Creamy cheese was also available, nutella and other jams, as was a toaster and a microwave. There was a juice dispenser with orange and multivitamin, and 2 other juices in their carton pack. It is a small dining area, but this never proved to be an issue for us, as a table was always readily availble.

A number of restaurants are also in the vicinity of the hotel. A Mc Donalds outlet is a 2 min walk from the hotel, but a 10 min walk away is another family run trattoria which Michele recommended. This restaurant has a special lunch & dinner set-menu, available only for the guests staying at the hotel. The dinner one is priced at €15, consisting of a choice of 3 different pasta as a starter ( a substantial portion), and for mains, its either meat or fish, with a side order of potatoes ( heavenly) or vegetables. Ice-cream was always served to us as dessert, with coffee and liquors after that. The liquor bottle, ice-cold, was always left on our table to help ourselves.

Michele also arranged to have a taxi pick us up on the day we checked out. We simply cannot thank these people enough for their superb hospitality, and we will certainly opt to stay here the next time we're in Milan. Grazie Mille!

I looked for an affordable hotel close to the city center of Milan, and was pleasantly surprised by the 22 Marzo Hotel! It is clean, well-kept, and close to the tram stop. The best feature, though, is the helpfulness of the owner/manager. He could not have been more accommodating - he answered every question we had and even walked us to the corner to show us where to get the tram ticket. I definitely recommend this hotel as an alternative to bigger and more expensive places...it's great!

In 2008 I had the most marvelous experience at the Hotel 22 Marzo on a tour of Europe. I stayed briefly at the hotel in Milan on my way from Chambery to Florence. The owner was so kind, that he found me a bottle of white Milanese wine for the next leg of my journey, out of the goodness of his heart!

The rooms were comfortable, clean and the hotel is very well maintained, providing breakfast in the morning. I give it a 5 star rating, as an off-the-beaten-path, hidden GEM!

We stayed here for 3 nights and 4 days and are pleased overall with our experience. The breakfasts were plentiful and included an array breads, cereals and and condiments to choose from. The hotel owners were friendly and were very willing to give directions/assist us in any way possible. The only downside was that on our arrival, even though we booked a room with twin beds, we were told that this was no longer available and that we had to share a double bed. Not pleased to say the least. But the next day all was amended as the manager personally apologised for the mishap and upgraded us to a bigger twin room. I would recommend this hotel, but be aware you get what you pay for as it is budget.

The location is fairly easy to get to from Milano Centrale with the bus stop located in the square directly in front of the hotel. The service here was immaculate, the staff lovely. They allowed us to check in early, fed us a complementary breakfast on that first day and were very helpful throughout. They also were super nice about my grabbing a croissant or two after breakfast was finished- I'm not much of an early riser!!

Overall this hotel was a great value and I would totally stay here again, the rooms have no frills but for a 2 star hotel this is to be expected. Location wise, using the public transport in Milan is a must, otherwise its a fairly long walk to the main sights.

Thanks again for a great stay and for the bottle of wine at checkout!!

We stayed three nights in the hotel and had a very good time. The rooms are relatively small and simple, but very clean with good room/cleaning service everyday. The breakfast offers everything you need and they make wonderful cappuccinos etc for you!
Everything they don't have compared to a three or four star hotel they totally compensate by their super nice service! The staff is extremely friendly, helpful, service-oriented and make you feel welcome from the very first minute. Perfect hotel for a weekend get-away if you are travelling on limited budget!
From Malpensa Airport take the Malpensa Express (30min; 11 Eur) to Cardorna and from there take the tram (#27) or a taxi (approx. 9 Eur). Enjoy la dolce vita!;)
