“Satisfactory Experience Close to the Airport”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2010

The hotel is about 200 meters from the rail station. They had our reservations correct and the room was OK but the walls are thin so you do hear other noises. The shuttle cost 20+ € but we were leaving Italy and they got us to the airport in good time. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Our rail connections were complicated coming from Venice and we hadn't eaten. The adjacent restaurant was good (a good local pizza selection) but was not open until 7PM and there isn't much else nearby for food except at the rail staton. It was OK for a place before your flight.

This hotel was filthy - the carpets are so stained it's hard to tell what colors they are. The shower was covered with scum, the elevator didn't work. Room was typically small, but had no charm. We were sent here by the reservation clerk at Malpensa after our flight had been cancelled and were told it was the only hotel that had rooms available (hard to believe), Breakfast mediocre.

We selected this hotel for a one night stay because we thought it would be convenient to get to from the train station (it is) and because they advertised having an airport shuttle service. After checking in we went to dinner. We were the first to be seated after they opened. My meal was served quickly, but my wife's seemed to be taking forever. In fact, I ended up eating mine before she even received hers! Sometime after midnight there was all kinds of noise and commotion out in the street waking both of us up. This went on for sometime and instead of being rested for our flight home we were tired. To top it off, in-spite of telling them that we would be down in the lobby for the airport shuttle at 7:30 am, there was no shuttle in sight. They had to call the driver, who was sitting at the airport not knowing he had someone waiting for him. When he picked us up and headed to the airport he drove like mad and was joking that he was a Formula One driver. We luckily just made our flight. Never again!

On vacation to Malta we had a one day stop over in Milan. We called from the airport to find a hotel and ended up taking a room with Hotel Tre Leoni. The price was grossly inflated but we were unfamiliar with the area and very tired, so we booked the room. Upon signing out we were charged 10 euro's more than we were initially quoted, but paid the bill anyway.

We then received our Visa statement a few weeks after arriving home to find that we were charged for two rooms at Tre Leoni Hotel one at a cost of $206.00 CDN for the room in which we stayed, plus an extra $260.00 CDN for another room which we did not stay in! We e-mailed Tre Leoni to have this matter cleared, they received our e-mail, read it, but have not respondedl. It has been six weeks and no response yet.

Do yourself a favour if you ever find yourself at Malpensa Airport in Milan, DO NOT STAY AT TRE LEONI HOTEL!

The rooms in this hotel small but are typical for a lot of older European hotels. But for a short stay they are adequate. The hotel gets a little noisy in the mornings about 8 o clock but as I was on business here this was not a problem. The food in the restaurant is very good but I was with some Italian guys all week so maybe this is why I did not have the problem that the people in the previous reviews had.

Dante must have stayed here prior to writing the INFERNO. This was truly a version of Hades for travelers in need of sleep prior to a flight from Milan to Los Angeles. My wife, myself, and our 25 year old son, booked a triple room Oct 17-18, 2005, at this hotel based on the recommendation of a information booth representative at Malpensa airport. Our room was on the first floor directly over the entrance to the hotel. The room was small with 3 single beds and very stuffy on an October night. The air conditioner made an annoying buzzing sound and the ceiling fan appeared to be improperly secured to the ceiling. It rotated violently and was out of balance. We opened the window and were immediately subjected to street noise and cigarette smoke arising from the staff lounging at the front entrance.
Our son departed for Turin in the morning and my wife and I remained at the hotel. There is very little of interest for tourists without a vehicle to see or do in Somma-Lombardo and travel into Milan by public transport is cumbersome. So we attempted to stay at the hotel and rest. Throughout the day, there was constant (every minute) hammering and drilling as construction workers repaired a broken water main in the basement of this 3-story structure. On the second night, we changed rooms and my wife and I were given a double on the second floor in the back. However, we were directly above a room whose occupants conversed, laughed, and watched TV from 11:00p.m. until 4:00a.m. The requested 5:00a.m wake-up call did not happen because the wrong room number was programmed, this was a moot point because I was awake all night. When I attempted to describe our discomfort and lack of rest, the owner became very defensive and lost his command of the English language (he communicated with us in English at check-in). I mentioned to an English-speaking staff member that I felt it was unfair of them to book rooms during such disruptive ongoing construction and that a reduction in the rate (I requested a 50% discount)would have been appropriate. The staff person translated my request to the owner, he apparently responded by saying we should have stayed at a different hotel, then he walked away.
The first night we dined at the hotel and our meals were acceptable and prices were in line with prices were not unreasonably high, although we found an absolutely terrific restaurant the second night a few blocks away at Corte Visconti "Il Ristorante" (across the street from Castello Visconti).

The Hotel Ristorante Tre Leoni at Via Maspero 10, Somma Lombardo, just outside of Milan, is most unfortunately -- but quite demonstrably -- engaged in the business of swindling its English-speaking (and very possibly its French-speaking) customers.

In January 2005, my wife and I had the misfortune of spending one night at the Tre Leoni, the last night of a one-month trip to Italy. It nearly destroyed our vacation. This complaint is not about their isolation, which puts you very much at their mercy, nor their terrible dirty little rooms, microscopically-sized showers, rock-hard beds or utter lack of service, attention and charm; such shortcomings are not unique to the Tre Leoni, and certainly not worth writing about. This complaint is about their CRIMINAL activity.

While there, we discovered that they have created a special set of prices for "the English," presumably in their hotel and absolutely in their restaurant. (We retained the evidence.) They actually have the temerity to present a menu to English speakers that runs about 40% higher than the menu they present to locals, and for precisely the same food. Why, I ask you, should we pay 3 euros for a carafe of what I expect was merely tap water when the table next to ours is charged only 1.6 euros? When my wife ferreted out this procedure (noting that our menu was sized differently from that of the Italian speaking family at the next table), she procured a local menu, studied it, then, appalled, asked the manager to explain the inconsistencies. Every price was higher on our menu! In response, he tried to bodily take the local menu -- to snatch it -- out of her hands. When I stopped that nonsense on the spot, he left, came back with a properly-priced menu (in English!), and tried to switch it with the one in my wife's hands. (Was he delusional? A two-year-old wouldn't fall for that trick.) I took the menu from him, and then we had the two sets of prices opened side by side. At that point, he claimed that we had somehow gotten ahold of a "misprint", that it was all a dreadful misunderstanding. Finally, faced with the truth right under his nose, forced to read the different prices out loud, he broke down and admitted that the restaurant presents two sets of prices for precisely the same dishes. He then justified the action, claiming that this is necessary because "the English and the French" eat too much and expect too much, so they must pay higher prices. When I pointed out that if they eat more they would pay more, so why charge different prices for the same food and beverage, he was left speechless, and just shrugged his shoulders and turned quite an unusual shade of red. I actually felt sorry for him by now. The owner of both establishments (the dining room is located just off the small, shabby lobby of the hotel), a man whom we later learned speaks excellent English, pretended not to understand a word of what was going on, and, when I appealed to him, turned his back and made himself scarce.

The manager finally agreed that he would take the entire restaurant charge off of our bill, but at six the next morning, as we were checking out -- pay attention here! -- the wily clerk ran our credit card through the machine not once, but twice, sending through first our hotel charge, which he knew we would sign without argument, and then, when we turned our backs, a second FORGED charge at nearly DOUBLE the cost of our meal the night before! This after trying to charge us an additional 26 euros for picking us up at and taking us back to the airport, though when we made our reservation we were absolutely assured that our fee included this round-trip service. While the clerk opened this fresh wound at the moment of our departure (while we urgently had to leave, to make our international flight on time -- an urgency clearly beyond his concern), he opened his book to show us something, inadvertently allowing us to see that we were paying about 20% more for our room than others were paying for theirs. When we pointed this out, he explained rather weakly that "the others were on half-board". We were on "no board," of course, so, by rights, our room should have cost even LESS than the others. But fair and logical pricing would not fit in with the illegal, immoral and reprehensible policies of the Hotel Tre Leoni, which must certainly be run by no less than the spirit of Thenardier himself, the infamous cheating landlord from the novel Les Miserables. Please, please, save your other readers from falling into the jaws of the Tre Leoni.
