The hotel itself is fantastic - the converted Convent is beautiful - very high ceilings with original wood beams - we also had a large living room - incredible value for what we paid. the grounds are also very nice and the restaurant deserves its Michelin star - we had 1 great dinner there and went downtown the other 2 nights.
The area around the hotel is rather industrial - there is a park which we did not visit - we went to shopping mall across the street - not much going on there. the Bignami metro stop is about 5-10 min walk from hotel - safe during day but not a good idea coming back late at night - we paid 23 Euros for a cab ride on a friday night from the Duomo back to the hotel.
Nice hotel located in ideal area to get to metros, meaning access to Milan is ideal. The room is really modern and is really good value. Air-con worked and there was a mini fridge available with a small range of refreshments (which we didn't use)
During the stay we experienced a leak in the bathroom from the room upstairs as there was a water dripping from the light. When we informed the staff they showed minimal concern. Saying that they'd get an engineer to look at it, the staff gave us no information as to whether the room was safe and whether the leak had been fixed.
Staff showed poor customer service, feeling like they didn't care and you were simply 'another' customer.
Breakfast was okay, while it felt like a free for all with other hotel visitors jumping infront of queues. Catering staff were rude and took half empty glasses while we'd left the table to grab more breakfast.
Overall the hotel itself is great, modern and has free wifi!!! However the staff lack customer service and care, meaning that not many people would return for a second trip.
Outside of the urban zone for the metro which required an extra gate on the metro and we couldn't use the milanocard for the metro. Also, small elevators meant we had to wait a little but in the morning.

Difficult to get to this hotel as it is on the overground train about 8 stops from Milan centre. Once at the station it is a bus journey to the hotel 1 Euro but stops about 1KM from the hotel then you have to walk.
Since our stay we realise that the hotel offers a shuttle service to and from the local train station for 5 Euro, so ring them when you get to the station.
We stayed in a twin room which offers a single and a twin bed, which were comfortable but not quite Premier inn standard. Shower room to dream of however and a nice touch with touch sensitive lighting controls.
Overall we were very pleased with our choice of hotel but would say the town doesn`t offer much so probably best to stay in the hotel for food, menu limited but ok and in Italian only, would recommend ordering a side dish with any mains ordered as the main comes without any trimmings.
