“Solid Airport Hotel”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Stayed one night at the First Hotel Malpensa before flying back to New York. Used the complementary hotel shuttle twice which was quick and very efficient. Good location just 5 minutes from Malpensa Airport. Check-in was fast and the hotel staff was very friendly. We had a double room that was plenty big and featured a comfortable bed. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bathroom was also quite spacious. We absolutely loved the Samarcanda Ristorante Pizzeria just down the road maybe a 10 minute walk. Check out was easy and the hotel shuttle left right on time. Would gladly stay here again if our travels take us to Malpensa in the future.

Very modern hotel with excellent proximity to the airport. The airport shuttle is very convenient. When you arrive, call the hotel and they will come and pick you up very promptly. The drive is about 5-7 minutes via highway, so you cannot walk from the airport to the hotel. The rooms were quiet, clean, and comfortable with excellent Wi-Fi services. We arrived after the restaurant had closed, but were able to get some food at the bar. The pizzas were restaurant quality and the bar menu was extensive. We left early in the morning before breakfast was served, but they put out pound cake and coffee for us anyway, which was appreciated. This is an excellent value for the money!

After having completed our first trip to Northern Italy (Milan, Venice, Florence) we chose this hotel to stay at for an overnight as it was about 5 minutes by shuttle (provided free of charge by First Hotel) to Malpensa Airport and we had an early flight back to NYC. The proximity to the airport was perfect and getting to the airport was extremely easy and well navigated by the driver of the shuttle. We were really glad to finish our trip to Italy at this hotel. The staff at the desk were all friendly, informative and welcoming. The Hotel is very clean and nicely decorated. It leans toward more modern décor but it is quite nice. Our room was spacious, clean and QUIET!
We were very impressed by this hotel and quite frankly would have stayed longer to check out the area of the hotel if we had known how nice it was.
In addition, we had a first rate dinner at the dining room. The food was EXCELLENT! I wanted to to into the kitchen and tell the chef how wonderful the meal was but did not want to embarrass him/her. I did tell the front desk how much we enjoyed the dinner and how nice this hotel is.
The breakfast next morning (which was included) was very nice and they start serving at 6:30 a.m. (I believe to accommodate visitors who have to check out early for early flights out of Malpensa).
I absolutely recommend this hotel. If you book a stay you will be pleasantly surprised.

Everything about First Hotel Melpensa is excellent. Their shuttle service to and from the airport is reliable, although you should ask the shuttle driver to drop you near your airline.desk. We plan to stay there again.
