“Charming hotel, perfect rooms, weak location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

Spent 3 nights within summer sale period, so the main destination was a very center of the city. To get there we needed to pick up a tram. Fortunately the stop is more than close to the hotel. It took some 10 minutes to get to Duomo. Last time stayed at Ibis centro, it was pretty closer. Generally, if you do not mind to use public transport and do not worry about very limited possibility to eat out in the evenings-this hotel is Ok. What really made me happy-great clean big and comfortable. Thanks Holiday Inn for a pleasant stay!

This is a small Holiday Inn. The rooms are clean and have the basic amenities: kettle, satellite TV, mini-bar fridge and in-room paid WiFi access. The beds are comfortable. The air-conditioning is not very consistent throughout the hotel (I had a room with reasonably good air-conditioning, whilst a business partner ended up in a room with a poorly performing unit). The thermostats have been set to shut the AC off pretty quickly so you won't have air circulating in the room. This was an issue for me; I start to feel claustrophobic if there isn't air circulating. Although on the convergence of two main thoroughfares, traffic noise was not an issue at all. I was in a room on the fifth floor.

The hotel dining should be quite all right. I personally chose to dine at neighborhood eateries, having the same workman's fare as the locals. There are convenience stores and grocery stores within walking distance, so getting supplies will not be too much of an issue.

Garibaldi station is a 10 minute walk away. I personally used the trams (stops are right outside the hotel) whilst in Milan. Tickets for transportation can be purchased at dispenser machines at any Metro station, I personally recommend getting the "10 Urban Trip" tickets...I digress. The hotel is 8 tram stops from the Duomo and 5 or 6 stops from the Castella.

Staff are friendly and helpful enough. I had no issues with getting help and directions from the Milanese! One of the friendlier cities in Europe!

Room Tip: Try to get rooms on the fifth floor, this might minimize traffic noise.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for my birthday weekend away on 5th till 8th August 2011.
We had planned to stay here as i am an empolyee of the Holiday Inn Company. We arrived around 12pm in the afternoon and was greeted by 2 members of the reception staff. Check in wasnt till 2pm but they kindly let us check in!
Bit disappointed about the breakfast, but the cold meat selection kept me going :)
Very close to the subway station ad very easy to use!
Trams are very hard to get the use of and can be difficult to figure out!
Milan itself is amazing!
Shopping was to die for and The Catherdal was very good to visit too!
A big well done goes out to the house keeping staff who kept our room and bathroom very clean and tidy, with fresh sheets every time!
Another MASSIVE Well done to the bar tender, who kindly gave 2 glasses of ice every night as i am allergic to mosquitos and suffered very badly!
Thank You to all of your mebers of staff for making my birthday excellent.
A presto & Grazie Tanto :D

My husband and I stayed here for three nights. The room was a standard Holiday Inn Room and very comparable to rooms in the states. They had a safe and fridge in the room which was important to us. Unfortunately they charged for internet, but again this is a standard Holiday Inn policy. The hotel was only a few blocks from the train station and there is a tram stop right outside which made it very easy to get to the Duomo and other locations around Milan. We even walked to and from the train station with our luggage to travel elsewhere in Italy. The staff was very helpful.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor above the lobby, we didnt experience any hotel noise but did hear the...

We had nothing but good service from Joshua at the front desk who spent extra time helping me find a hotel in a neighboring city. We also had lots of great interactions with other staff members throughout the stay. Great spot - take the tram in to the duomo in 15 minutes, just outside the door.
