"Friendly staff, but no way to get around"
If you are looking for friendly staff and great breakfast, they have it at Park Hotel. However, what they do not have is an easy way to get into Milan. The hotel is located in Cassano, Italy and required several expensive forms of transportation. Prior to booking the hotel, we called to make sure it was not difficult to get into Milan (because we knew it was outside of the city), and someone at the front desk reassured us that it was only a short walk to the metro station and a 30 minute train ride. That was not true at all. It was a 10 minute cab ride (because it was much to far to walk and it is exceptionally difficult to obtain a bus ticket) and then a 40 minute train ride every day. Although the hotel itself was very nice, I would not recommend staying here if it is Milan you desire to vist.
