    Expensive but not among the expensive ones. Small room but serves the function. Nice air condition. Really excellent staff and mega service minded. Rooms are very clean and neat. Also recommended excellent restaurant for dinner. All in all a good and nice surprise.

    The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
