My main reason for choosing this hotel was it's convenience to public transport, locally and for access to and from the airport. It was a reasonable price, much cheaper than the very central hotels. Also in a central area, local restaurants for evening meals are also very pricey. This hotel is clean and modern, with a good sized room with every amenity you would need. I cannot understand some reviewers talking about renovation being needed! Overall, we had a very good experience here. The first night we couldn't sleep due to very noisy aircon, which couldn't be turned off, so the next morning we were given a different room, with no problems. It was facing into an internal courtyard and very quiet. However, the hotel is on a quiet street anyway, so forward facing would also be quiet. There was a good choice at breakfast, regularly replenished whatever time you turn up. I would recommend asking for an individual coffee rather than use the thermos jugs of Americano - weak and tasteless. The staff all seemed very friendly and helpful, advising about tram routes, where to get tickets and ordering taxis, which came within a minute! The restaurant prices seemed reasonable - but if the wine you order is substituted, check the price! Don't assume it will be the same as your choice. During our stay the restaurant was being used for a private function, however, I can recommend the pizza/pasta place at the end of the street. It is called Friends and has pictures of the food displayed but it seems to be mainly used by local residents. The food is very good and cheap. You can also get fish or meat with nice roasted vegetables. My massive seabass was 15 euros, much cheaper than ti would cost in my home town in the UK.
Milan public transport is excellent, only 1.5 euros per journey of up to 90 minutes. Most stations seem to have disabled access, but changing lines or even getting to the platforms usually mean a lot of walking. Near the hotel are several tram routes, same tickets as for Metro, purchased from a nearby tabacchi. LIne 10 takes you near to a good shopping street. The hop-on/hop-off bus, 3 routes, gets you around most of central MIlan, pick up spot in Piazza Castello. Warning about La Scala Museum: it requires walking up many steep flights of stairs and there is no lift. less
