“Long weekend in Milan at Romana Residence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

I returned yesterday after 4 days in Milan with my husband. The weather was absolutely beautiful, great time to go! lots going on around the Duomo, fashion week and their carnival.

One thing I had trouble with before flying out there is finding the actual route to the hotel, so here it is; Flew into Linate airport, outside the airport there are coaches, well signposted, the guys selling tickets spoke english, we got the Starfly bus, this has 2 stops, we stayed on until the last stop – Milan Central Station. Journey time around 25 minutes costing 5 euros each. Then into the underground station, to get the Yellow Line to Crocetta station. Single ticket is 1.50 euro. One day travelcard is 4.50 euro. It’s about 5 or 6 stops along.

Crocetta is literally a 1 minute walk from the hotel, you come out at like a central area with 3 or 4 roads around you. so check the direction to walk on google in advance.

As for the room, upon walking in, I was a bit disappointed, the look of the rooms is quite dated, BUT dated is not necessarily a bad thing as it adds character, really depends what you want. If you want a modern hotel then this is not for you.

The first thing I noticed was the smell which was the incense stick, I guess in Milan they like really strong musky smells, anyway I put it in the closest and opened the windows, was not for me! BUT my first impression did not last long, over the 4 days there, I loved the room, it was comfortable and cosy, cleaned everyday; the beds were comfortable, however I did not like that the double bed was actually 2 singles.

oh and the noise at night can be annoying, especially the loud sirens, woke me a few times

The bathroom was clean, they changed the plastic cups and soaps everyday. They have a hairdryer, safe and minibar in the room. The TV drove us mad, hundreds of channels but none english (other than CNN). They offer free wifi, but only one person can log on at a time.

Breakfast –7 – 10am Hard boiled & scrambled egg, sausage, bacon and toast– that’s the hot breakfast done, pretty basic. Plenty of croissants, cereals, cold meats, juices, teas etc. On our last morning they ran out of bread, and no one went to get more, they should have, breakfast still had another hour to run.

Staff – receptionists all spoke good English. They give you a map, but it was no good as all the sight names were in Italian so we really didn’t know where to go, we had them translate some of sights so we could make a plan for the day.

In terms of location – VERY good. 10 mins to Duomo, trams, trains, buses – very central to it all.

Overall, I feel I overpaid for what I thought was a 4 star but is actually borderline to 3 star. However I say this by comparing to a UK 4 star hotel, in Milan this hotel may well be a perfectly good 4 star hotel. I would go to Milan again, but not sure I would stay at this hotel again.

Any q’s, feel free to message me.

We booked the Hotel not really knowing what to expect. Our criteria was that it should be in easy walking distance of the Duomo (which it is).

Very comfortable hotel. Staff were helpful. Accommodation was to a good standard. Italian breakfast's can be very basic - but we were very pleasantly surprised at the standard offered by the Romana.

Would definitely use this hotel again.

Good service. Rooms a little tired, but clean and my boys loved the waterproof radio in the shower! Walking distance to the Duomo. Really good value for money.

We stayed at the hotel in May 2011 with friends. Location is good, close to metro station and you can reach Duomo without changing the line or it's also possible to be reached on foot. Our room was very nice, with big bathroom and with a kitchenette. There is good WiFi connection in the room. We liked breakfast, tasty. The staff were very helpful and polite and spoke good english.
