Milano Digs May 15, 2012
Nothing to write home about, but the Fenice Hotel (fen-EEE-chee, not like Venice) covers the bases for a short stay in Milan. Our room was cramped, but not as teensy as Rome and everything was clean and well tended. The hotel is located a few blocks from the train station, but you have to take an indirect route if you want to reduce the time + distance. It is located on a main drag, however and is an easy fifteen minute walk to the Quadrilateral. There is also a metro station on the corner right next to the hotel, so a decent location.

The front desk spoke basic English, not enough to enter into conversation and seek any useful advice, but sufficient to accommodate pressing concerns. They also charge for wi-fi and despite having a PC in the lobby, you only get a complimentary fifteen minutes before that starts costing too. The breakfast buffet was good, they had waitresses who actually brought you a pot of coffee (which was quite good) and the food selection was slightly above average.

There is a small bar which was a good experience. A gelateria sits several doors down from the Fenice and we stopped for Kim and Eric to get their nightly fix as we returned for the night. We sat in the bar area and I ordered a beer to join them (we were the sole occupants and I had to get the desk clerk to rustle up the barkeep). After delivering my beer the barkeep returned with a small bowl of potato chips. These were the wonderful old fashioned potato chips – not today’s pasteurized, sterilized, health-ified and tasteless variety, but good and greasy.

Cheap hotel Milan Feb 27, 2012
We reached central station, after an our traveling with the shuttle bus. We reached the hotel after we took the tram to go to our hotel. After 2 ours we finally found it. It wasn't a very expensive hotel and it was located at the shopping street of Milan. There was an underground station right in front of the hotel. So that's great. But the staff wasn't talking proper English and the hotel room wasn't that great the beds were not comfortable. But for a short/cheap stay it's good enough. although it's very hard to find on your first travel. :p
New year in Milan

Hotel Fenice Jun 01, 2011
Location: The location is perfect. The Porta Venezia Metro station is right in front of the hotel. You can walk to the nearest touristy spots (Duomo, Brea neighborhood, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Parco Sempione which is behind Castello Sforzesco) from the hotel. There are multiple shopping streets near by as well. We walked through the neighborhood late at night and did not have a problem. We also did not feel unsafe at any moment. Easily reachable by Metro from Malpensa and Linate.

Rooms: Small, but clean. Feels more like a U.S. motel, but with no lingering cigarette smell. The bathroom was clean, no bathtub, but decent size shower. Air conditioning system worked just fine. The room was not equipped with an iron and not much of a view. Actually, I do not think there are any rooms with a nice view. The hotel is wedged between two businesses and behind the hotel is some kind of apartment building.

Restaurant: Breakfast was included with the stay. Breakfast was buffet style. Pastries, boiled eggs, cheeses, cereals, juices, water and they had waiters for you to order coffee from. I am not sure if they served anything else besides the mentioned food items. I did not have dinner in their restaurant, but it is clean. The restaurant area is a small.

Staff: Just bodies that answer questions. They speak enough English to help you with directions, which is what most of us really need anyway.

Amenities: No gym. They do have Wi-Fi. 3 Euros for 1 hour of use and they have a computer in their lobby area that you can use. I did not find any free Wi-Fi connection so if you pay for the Wi-Fi make sure you use it because they will not reimburse.

Overall, I would stay at the Hotel Fenice again and definitely will recommend it.
