Stayed 4 nights. Location: very near train station , about 4 stops to city centre BUT definitely not downtown, not near Duomo. BUT specialty restaurants just short walking distance outside . Lobby: very small , but more of a sitting lounge for hotel guests . Room: mine in the 8th floor fits me , being just on single occupancy, well equipped, comfortable bed, fairly sized tv with only 2 English channels but many Italian dialect ones . A coffee / tea making set. Stocked up mini bar. A drawback is the AC temperature, which was not cool enough I almost asked a stand fan so minimise the heat. Bathroom: just ok with me , BUT the shower stall can make someone feel claustrophobic, well typical of the ones in Europe I guess. WiFi :: needs password , but once activated is fast and fuss free. Breakfast :: buffet , is actually really good , not too much , but of high quality . Pleasant tasting , the breads and pastries seem to come out of their personal oven. They have gluten free variants for those with special diet. Loved my cappuccino every morning. Special mention :: the freebies in the lobby , such as coffee , water , pastries , cookies etc .. the people, particularly the bell staff Manuel and Pedro , who both doesn’t speak good English , but are very hardworking. Even though we never asked for porter service they are eager to help without asking in return. And the lady taking care of our daily breakfasts , she is very efficient , even though she refuse a photo op to recognise her, I understand. I hope these people get their proper credit and recognition.
Reminder: tap water in Milan ( or many parts of Italy ) are potable , so unless you want those with gas , just buy in stores nearby. less
