Would not recommend this! Feb 11, 2012
I was in this hotel for 5 nights for work. On arrival at the hotel I was greeted by a not so friendly receptionist who gave me my room keys and directed me to the lift where I could find my room, without barely looking at me once let alone smiling. Upon arriving in my room I was surprised given the bad reviews I had read previously from another travel website. (Although I should mention the corridor leading to the room was awful-dirty and it was old and smelly). The room was very big compared to others in Milan and the bathroom was a decent size too. The television was tiny and barely visible while lying in bed. I got up the next morning to have a shower only to discover that the shower was a little dirty with soap scum marks, so I decided to wear flip-flops. The shower leaked all over the floor literally leaving a pool that I had to mop up.

There was a strange smell of what seemed like stagnant water in the hotel which left me unable to stomach the breakfast.

I know that most hotels in Milan seem like the walls are paper thin but this one really does! My noisy neighbors did not seem to mind that people could hear their sex life at all hours of the morning though!

I had to pay for the wifi which was €9 for the duration of my stay, it seems though that this is normal in Milan. Also, the wireless is terrible, I was using it on my iPhone and it was off more than it was on!

I think that for the price of this hotel you can find much nicer, like the Hotel Ariston which I'm about to review! :)
