My friend and I had a lot of difficulty finding something that suited both of our requirements in Milan. I finally agreed to Hotel Arno based on Tripadvisor recommendations. We booked Hotel Arno and were staying for two nights. Thank goodness it was only two nights.
Location - 10-15 minutes from Central Station. To the city centre (shopping, duomo etc) a lot, lot further. It is located in a scary part of town, I noticed other reviewers said it's not bad so I should mention we were two 20 something females. We resorted to catching taxis at night. In retrospect, if I knew that was going to be the case I would have spent extra money moving closer to the centre rather than spending money on cabs.
Hotel - here is the kicker. We booked through a very reputable site to stay at Hotel Arno...we ended up in Hotel Eva. There is a 100 spot difference on tripadvisor between these two hotels! Again if I knew that I would never have stayed here. The place was old, incredibly hot and falling apart. The bathroom was functional. I really disliked this hotel experience. The reception staff were horrid. Breakfast was ok.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend staying here. You will spend extra money on taxis and the trains because it is too far to walk repeatedly.
