I have stayed at this hotel on a couple of occasions. It is just outside the centre of the city but is easy to reach, being adjacent to Lodi metro station. To get there from Linate airport is either two buses (73 then 92, costing €1.50) or a €15-20 taxi ride taking about 15 minutes. The room rate was very good for an hotel in a major European city. There was a single step to enter from the street with no obvious alternative entrance. The small lifts had quite narrow doors.
My room was immaculately clean, large, quiet, despite overlooking the road, and had free wifi that worked well. Thankfully, the air conditioning worked very well and was quiet enough to leave on all night as it was over 30 degrees outside.
Breakfast cost an extra €3 and was excellent - a huge choice of food, including scrambled eggs. The breakfast room was large and the fresh coffee was served quickly.
The only downside of the hotel was the fact that the mattress on my bed was extremely firm and the pillows were also quite solid. I realise that mattresses and pillows are a matter of personal taste. The sheets were wonderfully crisp cotton.
The front desk staff who spoke excellent English were efficient and very helpful, recommending a great restaurant a few minutes walk away. less
