After hunting around for a reasonably priced deal on a late booking we decided to go for the Zefiro.
The hotel itself was clean and reception helpful. Our room was on the second floor at the front. There was a little noise but that was mainly ambulances going to the nearby hopsital and nothing out of the ordinary for a city centre hotel. It didn't discturb my sleep.
My room was large with a mini bar and decent sized bathroom. Must say the bed was extremely comfortable and again a good size. TV had CNN & BBC World for catching up on world events.
Breakfast, well you needed to be up fairly early to get the best of the meats and cheeses but couldn't really complain. Just one tip for the coffee machine. I tried 2 espressos with milk because it stayed hotter longer than the other white coffee option.
As for transport there are good connections nearby. The 61 bus, out the front of the hotel turn right and right again to get onto the main road where there are several stops, was my main route through Milan as far as Duomo, Castle Sfozesco & Cadorna Station. I used the 5 tram to get to the Metro stops and Central Station. Don't use the tram stop just outside of the hotel if you're heading in to town, for Central Station say. Go left at the stop up the line a bit otherwise you'll do a loop back to the start of the route.
I found Milan easy to get around with a bit of knowledge and enjoyed my few days there. That even included a dreary AC Milan performance but the San Siro experience was fantastic (and you can get tickets in the bank near the hotel).
