“Don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2011

Room extremely small scruffy. It was very noisy and smoking is allowed on balconies which is as if theY were smoking in your room.
Very busy with students.
Rooms poorly appointed

Room Tip: The higher the better as far as noise from pub and backpackers but nothing helps city and constructi...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2011

We had a one bedroom apartment with two single beds, as requested.
Was very clean but also very small.
We didn't realise it was also shared student accommodation so always busy lifts with students coming and going but was not noisy in any way.

Good price and value for money but the room way too small for us.

I don't think I would stay there again as would have preferred something more central.

We asked for a deluxe room , if that’s what we got I dread to think what the standard room size is. We had a one bedroom apartment, with a tiny kitchen, the smallest lounge area I have ever seen, I could reach out and almost touch the TV from the couch, tiny dining table all in one little cramped room. The bedroom only had room for one bedside table, it had plenty of shelving and another TV. Bathroom was a decent size also with plenty of shelving .There was no where to store our suitcases except standing up on the equally small balcony.
It was very noisy and when other guests were entering our leaving their apartments it sounded like they were coming into our apartment, due to the paper thin walls

Very comfortable and stylish rooms. Inexpensive when booked on cheap travel sites- very good price obtained for a high class room. Have stayed multiple times now

I, like the other recent traveller, was nervous about having booked here after seeing such bad reviews come up. We stayed at Milano for 3 nights, at quite a reasonable price, in a one bedroom apartment. The good things: A good apartment with everything you need (kitchen, washing machine bathroom), even for such a small place. The service was also good, unlike the other reviews. We didn't find noise an issue, but had request the highest floor possible. There are a lot of asian students living there, but we never had any noise issues. The average things: Don't get it if the balcony is a selling point, it's tiny and the heatpump unit takes up half of it! We also had dirty marks on our walls, but everything else seemed clean. The Aldi next door is not great, a kind of bulk alternative supermarket, so don't think you can go there and get regular foods! Overall, it was good value for money for an apartment. We would stay here again, but don't expect complete perfection!
