Well, we went to Europe to feel like we were in Europe and Hotel Mennini fit the bill. I liked the stair case. I enjoyed the balcony overlooking the intesection of 6 streets.
The continental breakfast was not Bob Evans but we did enjoy it; brown hard Why did I choose Mennini to begin with. It had balconies! And one could watch the people rolling suitcases 24hrs a day to and from the train station.
We enjoyed the cafe in front of the hotel for a beer or wine or hot tea or food.
It is one block walk from the Hotel to the Subway and train station.
Want to save a little money on food? There is a Supermarket one (maybe 2) blocks south of the hotel. By some cheese, crackers etc. and keep it in the Mini Bar fridge.
The room was cleaned daily. We had plenty of fresh towels daily(3 sizes), but did get any wash cloths, must be a Euopean thing.
Yes, some reviews say it is not in the best of neighborhoods. Howver, every large city in America has a neighborhod or 2 or
3 that I would not want my grandchildren in in broad daylight. This is not the case with Hotel Meninni. True we were not on the streets at 2 in Morning but there was lots of pedistrian traffic well into the night. I could observe this from my balcony while drinking my coffee from McDonalds (closest thing to American coffee that I could find)
Location very central, many restaurants close by, staff were extremely helpful and charming. Room very quaint and clean and with kettle, LCD TV and bathroom very clean with bidet. Very fast wifi and it is free.
Stayed 2 nights October, 2014. Hotel an easy 3 block walk from the station, although a decent walk from the city area, but there is the Metro. Rooms were nice, clean and quiet, which was wonderful after 6 weeks of travelling through Italy and mostly noisy rooms making sleeping difficult.. We were 2 couples in 2 rooms. Beds really comfortable. Great shower & bathroom. Breakfast included which was also very good with ample choices. Free wifi, and fast for a change.
Bars and restaurants nearby, including a fantastic one across the road named Dinky Ristorante - Pizzeria.
Would have no hesitation in staying here again and highly recommend it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. The bathroom was very good, just a little small, but had everything one needed for a short stay. Breakfast was buffet style but plentiful and the coffee is excellent. The hotel location is perfect for a visit to Milan - there is a metro stop just across the road but we prefer to walk and everything is within walking distance, giving you the opportunity to see the city.
Palazzo delle Stelline is a wonderful choice for any stay in Milan, I would recommend it to anyone who would like to have a pleasant and different experience in that city. First of all, it is reasonably priced; second, its location could not be better, across from the church where Da Vinci painted his well-known masterpiece, The Last Supper, a mural (but please reserve your visit to that church in advance!) and close to main metro stations (including Cadorno, the last stop of Malpensa Express, the train which serves the trip from & to the airport), as well as close to several cafés and bars. From the Palazzo you can walk to all the main attractions & museums, including the Duomo, the Pinacoteca di Brera, etc. Also, almost all rooms face a magnificent central patio, which gives the hotel a special charm, like the one you get in a spiritual retreat. Finally, it is very well maintained & managed, rooms are comfortable, ¡and the breakfasts are superb!
