My first impression was that the (twin) room didn't seem quite as impressive as the rooms in the pictures, but overall this small boutique hotel is excellent, if a little out of town; and the minimal decor was definitely preferable to the chintz you get in so many European hotels. The low sleek beds were super comfy, but the air con could have perhaps done with a boost. The chilled lobby/bar was home to the reception/concierge desk, where everyone we encountered went above and beyond to assist with making arrangements, suggestion restaurants, etc; even allowing us to borrow a room to shower in before a late flight home. The continental breakfast is the same each day, but nice all the same. Served at a large table in the lounge so you get to see the other guests, but not so intimate you're forced into conversation if you're not a morning person. Our room was in the back section of the hotel, where some of the carpets on the stairwell seemed a bit worn; but all in all a very stylish location. We didn't use the terrace garden as we were always out and about or popping back to get changed for the evening but it looked good. In the room, the double shower more than made up for lack of a bath; good selection of Ortiga products. Fluffy (not crisp) bathrobe was a welcome touch, and mirrored the super soft water. A small criticism was that we had complimentary mineral water and tea and coffee, but no milk. Called down for it one day; and then it was left to go off in the room. We more than made up for it with wine from the bar though - a really crisp light sauvignon was perfection; and served with complimentary aperitivos. All in all, would recommend, for a relaxing break, but recommend familiarising yourself the tram system (1 and 19 both run nearby). My only wish would be for a rooftop pool/bar... but the Terme Milano made up for that, even if it is journey away.
