This hotel is pretty good, except the beds which are so so, the rest is very good, I would suggest it. The restaurants is pretty good, and the staff is very polite, also it has a hospital very close by which is something positive!

The hotel was affordable, clean and modern, with friendly staff. It is also close to public transport, however it was a little tricky to find. The meals from the restaurant were nice and facilities were good - Would definitely stay here again without question.

We were attending the Grand Prix and found this hotel offered good value for money. The place is as grand as it looks on their website and I'd describe it more of a business hotel than tourist. I assume it's been built there to service the large hospital on the same campus. We wanted to pop out to some shops... More

I'm not sure what the issue is with finding the hotel, satnav found it just fine. I concede that it's not a hotel where you step outside the entrance and into the bustling streets of Milan so if that's all you're looking for, pay a much higher price in Milan and forget the car! We wanted to visit some other... More

Clean and big rooms, comfortable but avarage and maybe little bit overpriced for 3 star. Wifi signal was good and you can parking free. Breakfast was so good and enough. Staff are friendly and helpful. Very quiet hotel, we not really met any guests. The biggest problem is that the Hotel is very far from the City center.Another problem if... More

I expended one night in this hotel in the context of a scientific meeting at San Raffaele Scientific Institute. The hotel is perfectly located within the hospital area and 10-15 minutes away from Linate Airport, which was extremely convenient. Clean and comfortable room, with one queen size bed and a small corner to work. This is a good hotel for... More

We arrived at Milan during Milan design week which left us not many choices. The B&Bs were either fully booked or unreasonably expensive. At last we managed to book Rafael through a travel agency at 125euro per night breakfast excluded. The location is quite tricky. On hotel's website, they said there's shuttle between hotel and metro station, never mentioned where... More
