This hotel is new. Rooms are clean and comfy. Breakfast is nice. PRICE IS EXCELLENT. 75euros per night including breakfast. Located near Terminal 1 / Malpensa airport. Food is not good. I had the worst raviolias in my life for 8 euros. If you need internet they charge 5 euros per hour! Or 10euros for three hours! If you pay in cash, ask immediately for a receipt because every employee is like a different company. If you don't care about expensive internet, bad food, a location near airport(!) and a bad organised hotel then this one is perfect for you!

We used this hotel flying in and out of Malpensa twice during our recent vacation. The hotel is pretty new with very nice and functional rooms. Easy access by shuttle to Malpensa. Nice pizza restaurant (Samarcanda) nearby that is worth it.

If you are driving with a gps, plug the hotel address in and you will be fine, if no gps, stick to the directions on website. The crown plaza is nearby and a bit easier to find at night.

If you are arriving at the airport and need the shuttle bus, be aware there is NO courtesy phone.
At terminal 1 (most international travelers) follow the signs for buses to Milan, go out side and look for bus stop (fermata) 19.
This is where they will pick you up AFTER you call them. (so have a phone ready).
There are no signs saying that this is where you need to be. It just is.

Check in was smooth, internet is free if platinum with ICH otherwise you will have to pay. Internet is fast and omnipresent.
English channel selection on the TV is 4 channels and plenty of other languages available.
Room was a good size room with non carpet floors. Bath room is a good size with the squeezable soap/shampoo dispenser.
Everything was clean, in good shape and maintained.
Room are not completey sound proof, however you will get a good night sleep in.
Staff was friendly, courteous during multiple stays.
The breakfast buffet is a good set up with plenty of choices.
There is a bar area that is open at night where you can get some food and have a sit down with a beer, wine, soda or juice.
About 200 meters away is a good local restaurant, Samarcanda ( ristorantesamarcanda.com).
Excellent for a night dinner.

The hotel is about half the prize of the on-site Sheraton, and 5 min away. Good deal for the budget minded.
Hope this helps.

Enjoy.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while awaiting our flight home to United States.
The hotel is conveniently located near the Malpensa airport. There is a convenient and free shuttle service to move you between the hotel and Terminal 1. The rooms are large and immaculately clean. Rates are very affordable and include breakfast. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. And while there is not a great deal to do around the hotel, there is an excellent trattoria named Samarcando which is a five minute walk. Staying close to the airport is an ideal way to avoid having to make an early morning trip to the airport from Milan, which can easily take over an hour. We were pleased with hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again to await a flight.

Very clean, very modern. A short bus ride from the terminal. However be aware. That the airport bus leaves you about 200 yards from the hotel and you have to haul your luggage. Hopefully your luggage has wheels. In which case it's no problem. Backpackers will have to carry as usual.

We arrived very late at night. And Italy is broke. So there are no signs or maps in English that help you or direct you. And late at night there is no one around either. We finally found a cab driver with enough English to tell us where the bus was and how to use it. Do the navigation research before you arrive to avoid frustration.

This hotel is clean, modern and has a terrific breakfast. Not a bad place to spend a night while you wait to get into or out of town.

Got a great rate to stay overnight - good Airport Shuttle service which makes life a lot easier although you must have a phone to contact reception from the Airport to arrange pick-up.
Room was fine - didn't work out for a bit that aircon won't work if window open - OK we were really tired!!!
No restaurant for dinner but went to a great restaurant 5 mins away
Breakfast was excellent

I was looking for a clean, cheap airport hotel in Milano, in advance of a morning flight. My expectations were set after staying at another HI Express in UK.

The hotel is located few km away from Malpensa airport, connected via a complimentary hotel shuttle which runs every 30 minutes. We chose the airport shuttle between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, and got off at second stop. From there you have about 500m to walk until the hotel lobby. Overall not bad location if you take the hotel shuttle, but inconvenient if you take the airport shuttle during bad weather.

The hotel itself has a small lobby with a bar, 2 PCs, few tables and a reasonable restaurant eating area. The rooms are small(ish), but with a large bathroom and equipped with everything you need for a pre- or post-flight sleep. Assuming 90%+ of the guests stay there for just one night, it is perfectly fit-for-purpose. The bed is very comfortable, and there is no noise from the airport.

In the morning they offer free coffee and croissants before 6:00AM, which is good if you have an early flight out. If I need to stay in that area in the future, the choice will be easy.
