Rating by category:
The location is excellent! It's right next to the metro station and it's within walking distance to almost all the attractions. Its breakfast is really good, and the elevator is of very good size too. Surprising!
They always leave your windows open when they clean your room, and then mosquitoes would come in and you would have a hard time at night.
The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
The location is quite far from duomo (by foot). It's quite hard to find the hotel because it's located in small alley.
hotel stuff was very respectful and helpfull..also the location was perfect for us.
old design and need to repair the showers
The manager of the hotel was very good guid for the city trip
Only one block from the metro and express train to Milan Malpensa airport. Quick metro ride to Duomo. Comfortable room and beds. Modest price in compared to other Milan hotels. Air conditioning worked well.
The juice at breakfast was very "watery." Could use a few more pillows on the beds.
The hotel staff are absolutely excellent! They are extremely helpful and sympathetic to all guest needs. They will talk with you for long time, if needed, to guide you. We arrived late and needed help to find parking garage. Dan (the night reception man) helped guide me alot! In the morning, the lady owner helped us get tickets for tours. Her husband was also very kind and I think their son also works there and was very helpful.
Hotel has not much to offer except a plain, simple room. The air conditioning can create ice if you keep it too cold. But that is all we needed because we were there for sightseeing. The good staff really make a simple, plain room much more livable!!!
Close to duomo center, just 5mins walking
Location, location, location.
Staff could be little more friendlier as you expect from Italians; welcoming and helpful. Felt like being in Paris all over again in terms of service.
Good location in central part and near of railway/metro stations. Good breakfast, clean room, cosy hotel. Many thanks to Natalie for hospitality and good advices re sightseeings and shopping
I would describe the hotel as a small, family hotel with max 40 rooms. Very clean, renovated rooms, warm and cosy. The hotel situated just in the centre of Milan in the very quiet narrow street, 2minutes walk to the underground, 5min walk to Duomo and 3min to the castle. Restaurants and cafes nearby. No grocery shops nearby and no possibility to leave the car in front of the hotel. Staff very helpful and friendly. Decent breakfast buffet.
a very nice bathroom, I liked the stylish room and important - no carpenter! The Hotel is not far from the city centre with very nice little restaurants nearby.
Excellent location for our city trip, at walking distance of all main sites of interest. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The noise inside the hotel was disturbing and woke us up early every morning : doors smashing, noise of trolleys and bags on the parquet replacing the carpets on the floor, noise of renovation work going on, even on sunday morning !
Very high price for the internet connection
Excellent pre-arrival information emailed through.
9Eur for internet access!
Excellent location, good rooms, standard brekfast, nice staff.
