This hotel was great for us, with just a short walk to the cathedral. What made this hotel so recommendable was the friendliness of the staff. We had a very noisy neighbour, when we reported this to reception they handled it really well and had a word with them, which resolved the problem. Good breakfast and clean, quirky rooms too!

I've been staying here since 2010, at least once a year, when I come to a performance at La Scala which is a very short walk away. It's comfortable, clean, very competitively priced, and with great customer service. During my latest trip I mentioned at check-in that I would be leaving very early, and asked about pre-booking a taxi (it wasn't necessary). When I returned from the theatre late in the evening I found a tray with breakfast on the desk. it was such a thoughtful gesture that I felt I had to write another review. This hotel is a gem!
A tip based on experience : always book from the hotel's website which has the best rates.

Very nice hotel near opera La Scala and Duomo. On a quiet street so it was easy to sleep. Breakfast very good too. The staff were very helpful and friendly. There were umbrellas for guests in case of a sudden summer storm.

Excellent location! Few minutes walk to pick up location for Viator (handled by Zani Viaggi tours) which is nice for the 06:45 departure times for Bernina Express and Cinque Terre trips. Also close to metro lines and easy walk to Cadorna for the Malpensa Express train. Easy walk to many tourist spots!
We had a superior with two twin beds. Beds and pillows were adequate but not quite what I would call very comfortable. The superior rooms have remote control air conditioning, nice for middle of the night adjustments to temp. Make sure you have air conditioning in the summer, it is hot and humid and mosquitos are everywhere, which means you won't want to open the window at night. Our room was over Via Dei Bossi street which was usually quiet by evening and the air conditioning fan provided enough background noise to mask any noise from outside. Window also had push button blackout shades, very nice!
Rooms are very clean, and we had two closets each with two drawers, a safe, a bench with storage and a nice sized desk built into the wall. Bathrooms are tiny for US standards, but typical of Italy. Shower was small, but the design was amazing. Floor-to-ceiling seal which kept all the steam inside, step out and re-close the door and you have no steam built up in the rest of the bathroom. Bath towels are thin, waffle weave, but oversized bath sheet which was nice. There are no wash cloths (face cloths) but that is often the case in European hotels that are not a U.S. brand. Complimentary toiletries are a nice plus: inc. shaving kit, dental kit, q-tips and cotton balls along with other usual items. Also had a simple to use tea kettle. Everyday we had a new complimentary bottle of still water and bottle of sparkling water in the mini fridge. Very thoughtful touch!
There is free wifi, but you have to reconnect every day, it isn't automatic.
Breakfast buffet was very nice. The coffee, of course, was fabulous.
Late night munchies? Bella Vista is just steps away around the corner with take away, including beer and wine, if you want to bring it back to hotel. Not the greatest food, but very cheap. Franelli restaurant is an easy walk, by Sforza Castel, with amazing food, best pizza crust of all we tried.
I would make this my first choice to stay here again, should I return to Milan. Very good value. Bedding comfort and bathroom/shower size are what keep it from a perfect score in my book.

Room Tip: Verify your room has A/C, I believe some do not.

Well located on quiet side street, easy walking distance to subway, Duomo, Sforza castle and Brera district. Rooms clean and bedding / linens comfortable, air conditioning works quietly and efficiently, breakfast good and staff helpful. Shower small but not uncommon for Italian hotels, hair dryer could be updated but worked well enough.
