Reviewed 27 April 2012

A large comfortable room awaited me at the end of an exhausting day. Wooden floors added a touch of class and a feeling of cleanliness. The decor is simple and pleasant. The TV good quality and possibly lacking a selection of foreign channels. This was unimportant to me as I am Italian and welcomed the opportunity to watch programs in my own mother tongue, for a change.

Mario at the restaurant was welcoming and dinner was good and reasonably priced for a 4 stars hotel in Milan. Breakfast was excellent as I decided to feast on Italian croissants and cakes. Coffee, cappuccino and freshly squeezed orange juice were also excellent. Eggs and bacon, however, were not up to the standard you would expect from a world wide chain that should cater for all eating choices.

Overall a great find as long as you move by taxi and don't mind the shabby surroundings.
You can also take the tram and it is a pleasant ride to the town center, but remember to buy the ticket from the reception before you leave.

Pro - Value for money during trade shows high season, well appointed room, comfortable bed, quality toiletries, good restaurants, courteous staff
Cons - Shabby surroundings and distance from city center

Room Tip: My room was overlooking the internal courtyard and it was absolutely perfect.

Reviewed 24 April 2012

I was in the hotel for three days on business this April. The hotel is great, the room is large and super-clean. It's very comfortable, bed is awsome and shower/bath is clean with very good water.
Unlike most of europe, breakfast is good with many dishes to choose from. I was also in DoubleTree Orlando, and it's just a very good hotel chain.
We god Wifi because we were a group on business, I don't know if it's free for everyone else. The signal in my room was not very good, but it worked most of the time.
BUT, the location is less for turist and more for business people. It's far from the center, it's in the middle of an industrial area and unpleasant to walk outside in the dark. Of course, there's no view from the windows, only straight into industrial sites.
Even when you're on business, you want to make the best out of your free time, so the location was a big minus. A taxi to the Duomo was 16-25 euro, depends on time and traffic.

Room Tip: some of the rooms has low WiFi signal.

Pros: Newly build hotel with large rooms around industrial-commercial area of the city. Room was very clean and well equipped. Stuff was very helpful and kind. breakfast was very rich and delicious. Hotel price very good in these conditions ,breakfast included to the price. Silent place, far enough from the main streets. If you have a car ,there is plenty of car park palce , a big cons for me.
Cons: About 6.5 km away from the touristic spots like Duomo, some far. But 200 m to the tram station and buses. Area some isolated and dark at night, but seems safe.

This is quite new-build hotel, unfortunately the surrounding area not as nice as the hotel.

Room:
It was decent size room with modern interior and very clean. Limited room choice, you won't find a deluxe room or executive room in this hotel. No executive lounge as well. There is a wireless internet in the room which quite comfortable.

Location:
It was located quite far from the city. You have free parking outside the hotel (in the street). You can take Tram 12 to the city or take Tram 19 and change to Tram 14 in Piazza Firenze). Or you can take a train from Certosa +/- 15 Min from hotel. Transport ticket EUR 1.50 one way (except sunday for all day) valid for 90 minutes. You can get this in the receptionist.

Breakfast:
Decent breakfast. You will find a decent varieties you can choose from. It was taste good.

In Conclusion:
Reasonable price and good value to stay in Milan. A little bit distance to the city center, but a lot of public transport option available.
