Probably the most inconvenient fact was that no room has individual control over the A/C. The temperature was pleasant, but some might prefer a higher temperature. When we called the front desk and asked them to raise the temperature for one room, they did so at once, so this was great service, again. However, the A/C was turned on all night and generally, you could not turn it off, which was quite uncomfortable. Though, in order to turn it off, you could remove your key card and in turn would turn off all the power in the whole room. Another inconvenience is the size of the beds, which are quite small (approx. 160cm for a double and 90cm for a single). However, for the duration of two nights, it was okay and the beds were comfortable. While the breakfast was delicious and the variation as such was plenty, the individual portions were sometimes a bit small and not filled up immediately after a previous guest took the last piece. Furthermore, all cooked dishes were rather cold. The last inconvenience is a minor one, and concerns our arrival by car. The hotel provides free parking spaces but those spaces are in a side street behind the hotel and not, for example, in a garage, which would be inaccessible to the public. You have to get a key at the front desk to unlock the barrier in order to park and we got the last parking space when we arrived. However, at night, several parking spaces were free again, which made us assume that not only hotel guests park there. And if you have a rather new or maybe quite valuable car, you feel a bit uncomfortable to leave it there (especially looking at all the other cars driving around Milan). But again, this is only a very personal inconvenience to our otherwise great stay. Overall, the positives certainly outweigh the negatives and I would stay at Nu Hotel again.
Nu Hotel is situated a bit outside the center of Milan, but still, very close to a metro station and getting to the center by metro is no problem (you have to change lines once, though - but altogether it shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes to get to the center). On the way from the hotel to the metro station, some nice restaurants and bars are located. Also, the hotel was very comfortable to reach from the highway. The rooms themselves and the hotel in general are very clean, comfortable and quiet and the furnishings were of high quality. Also, the design was very modern and the staff very friendly and anything you asked them for, they provided you with (e.g. extra blanket for the double room, higher temperature, information on the city...). For breakfast, they also used quality products and offered a good variation (sweet, sushi, fish, ham, salami, cheese, eggs, bacon, cereals, yoghurt...) and the breakfast room (which serves as a restaurant during the day/at night) is located on the top floor, which I can imagine being exceptionally lovely in spring and summer. Since we arrived by car, we looked for hotels with parking spaces and Nu Hotel offers free parking, which is great. Overall, the price was adequate to the service the hotel offers and provides.
