When we arrived the check in was quite quick and we were met with a smile, the hotel is in a great location, after our flight i fancied a bath before going out and about, to my horror the water filling the bath was brown and yellow, we called reception who tried to help but they couldnt understand what we were saying to my partner had to go downstairs to get someone to come up and have a look and move us rooms (they said it was because only half the hotel was used at this time of year but didnt explain why we were over that side), after the handy man visited our room we were moved to a lower floor, this room vibrated everytime a train passes underneath, which is nearly every 5minutes, we ate in the restaurant one night as most restuarants in Milan close around the new year period and the food tasted awful, i had tagetilli with mushrooms and it was cold, so we decided to venture out after that, we found a gorgeous indian restuarant (out the hotel and turn right and then turn right down the first street and its on the left hand side of the road) best indian i have ever had, and we were offered liquiers and lots of little things to try out while we waited for our meal.
The good things about the hotel is the location, it is near the underground (perhaps too near) and its on the main shopping street, with decent sized rooms and very friendly staff. I would stay again but ask for a room higher up.
