we chose this hotel off the Expedia site - as it is close to porta garibaldi ( the railway terminus for paris ) and near to the city centre.
When you approach the hotel you somewhat fear the worst as it has a crumbling facade - you expect the interior may be similar. However much to our pleasuue we found that our room was very nice indeed. The outside reatuarnt area nearby ( not part of hotel ) also makes this a good location as well as the proximity to and connections to the big sites in Milan.
Breakfast also very good
All in all - this is not the most exciting place in Milan - but its a very good base - our room was very good and it is good value for money.We would definitely return
Traveller from London
Exclusive apartments, bar, and garage in the heart of Milan near metro, tram, and train links. Right by fashionable Corso …More
The hotel is superbly located near Garilbaldi train station and next to a bustling trendy piazza district called Corso Como. It's very easy to get around Milan using their metro, so we found going to the attractions very easy. Being next to Corso Como you have a wide array of boutique fashion shops and more importantly restaurants. The hotel was very clean, decent sized rooms, the internet was very good, buffet breakfast was very good too. The only thing we found and we are being very picky was the pillows were either too hard or too low. We just didn't find the right ones. However the beds were excellent size and the kid's bed was larger than we first thought.
Staff were great in and were quite helpful.
We would definitely be staying again here - we loved it. Moreover, the most impressive thing was the location.
"Nice stay across the street from Garibaldi station"
We only stayed one night in this hotel, but we really liked it.
The staff was wonderful, the room was nice and comfortable and the included breakfast was excellent.
The location was excellent: metro and bus stops on the same block, across the street from Garibaldi station and just down the street is a pedestrian area with lots (a few blocks worth) of great dining options.
For being so close to so many things we did not notice any noise in our room.
Stayed here for F1 GP at Monza. About 20 min walk to Garibaldi station and 30 min walk to Centrale. Nice hotel, quiet, not flashy, more traditional style. A bit out of centre in chinatown but no problem to walk to Duomo, about 20 min at decent pace. Can walk through the park past Fortezza castle, very pleasant. Hotel staff excellent, rooms nice and clean, decent size. Good standard breakfast. Great wine bar at south end of Messina called Cantine Isola, excellent laid back local place with 15 or so bottles open to have by the glass.
The property was just what I needed; a single room with heating and refrigeration allowing "picnic" meals. The front desk staff was VERY helpful. This is such a good idea. If some other company wanted to create luxury efficiency rooms, I think there would be a market for it.
One of Milan’s most fashionable areas, Porta Garibaldi is also the business district of the city and Italy’s powerhouse. From here there is access to all areas including the chic Brera quarter, full of designer boutiques and art galleries. The most famous of these is the Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan’s best gallery housing one of Italy’s greatest art collections and spanning 700 years of Italian art.
