Des Etrangers
Ranked #206 of 428 Hotels in Milan
Reviewed January 5, 2010

Stayed 8 nights as we were spending year-end with family living in Milan. At 80 Euros a night (breakfast included) the hotel is a very good bargain, especially in Milan! Our room was relatively spacious, recently refurbished in a nice style, and very clean. Comfortable bed, roomy closet for storing, flat screen TV with good choice of channels (Sky). Very clean bathroom (with bidet for those interested). Hotel staff is rather friendly (most spoke English, French or Spanish). As we came by train, I can't tell about parking in the area, but be aware that Milan is a drivers' nightmare (cars parked wherever possible… or impossible). Only two (small) downsides. First is the typical Italian breakfast served at the hotel: mostly sweets... if you're lucky you'll beat the other foreigners to the little plate of ham or cheese (served only once, no refill). After a couple days you get used to it (or save a slice of pizza for breakfast). Second issue is the soundproofing: we could hear the TV from the neighboring room in our own room (maybe because we had turned the airco/heating system off). Worth checking with the staff upon arrival.
Though the hotel is not located in the city center, it's well connected by buses and the subway (which by the way are very cheap). Some sites (e.g. Sant' Ambrogio, Santa Maria delle Grazie, Science & Technology Museum) are located walking distance. The area around the hotel is mostly residential, with some small shops, but there are a couple options for eating. There are also a couple supermarkets not too far (Pam on Foppa, Esselunga on Washington).
I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Milan and looking for a very good price / value rate.

Before going to Milan I read the reviews about hotels very carefully where to stay- and chose the above hotel for 4 nights with my friend and cannot recommend highly enough. Nice and clean rooms (cleaned every day), very good bathroom (heated floors), friendly and helpful staff (very good English), plenty of breakfast. Located not in the centre of Milan, but the public transport links are very good.

Found this hotel after looking long and hard for reasonably priced hotels in Milan. At EUR80 a night this was very good value. The room was clean and comfortable, the reception area was very relaxing to sit in and read the paper, and the staff were all friendly.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Milan. It is about a 30 min walk to the city centre, but you can easily catch the metro. And it is nice to see a bit of residential Milan outside of the city centre.
