눇The bed was very big and comfortable. The staff were all friendly and spoke english well and always offered advice and directions where requested. The maid service came every day no matter what time we left the room. Close to the metro link to get into the centre quickly. Friendly locals.

눉I had a superior studio which was fine for my purpose. It is basic and has all the charm of a dentist's waiting room. I was glad I was there on my own although it might be okay for a couple. I spend half my life in hotels so I'm probably a bit picky! The sofa - which becomes a sofa-bed - was scuzzy and well worn. Put it this way, I'm glad I didn't have to use it. If the studio were used for 4 people the place would have been terribly cramped. The kitchen is very basic with one saucepan and no kettle; although in my experience kettles are an Irish & English thing. The description says it has a snack bar, it doesn't. There are two vending machines in the room where breakfast is served. And talking of breakfast, don't bother; especially with the current exchange rate. The choice is poor and you have to let them know the night before if you want breakfast the following day. I usually don't know at 20:00 if I'm going to want breakfast the following morning at 10:00; so that's very restrictive. The Italian Tourist Board's rating is four star but trust me, it's not. It's really, really not. I'd suggest that the superior studio I had was a reasonable three star, but certainly no more. An ice machine for guests' use would have been great, considering the temperature was 36 degrees! Also, it wouldn't take much to offer a very basic bar service with wine, beer, olives and a few snacks; even just to take to your room. I've stayed in quite a few similar places and that option worked very well. The location is a residential area and there are a few shops and a badly stocked supermarket about a 10 min walk away. But walking back in 36 degree heat, carrying heavy bottles of the aforementioned Prosecco was no fun. However, the good things far outweigh the bad and I'd go back again in a heartbeat.
눇Many thing about this hotel are great. The bed was really comfortable with great pillows. The shower has excellent pressure. The internet is fast and free (download speed of about 20mbps). There are sockets by the bed (never underestimate how important this is to the business traveler!) and the sitting area although small, was suitable for conference calls, etc. The air-con worked well and was easy to control. The fridge was also cold. It may seem bizarre, but it's amazing how many times fridges in hotel rooms make it their life's work to actively make drinks warmer! But my Prosecco was the perfect temperature:-) The staff were super-helpful and very kind. The pool is gorgeous!! It's not huge, but neither is it a puddle and it's possible to plough up and down if getting some lengths in is important. Although there's no restaurant or bar, it's possible to have wonderful pizza or pasta delivered ... and with wine! Large bottles of water were available to purchase at reception which was great, because there really isn't much nearby. I was in Milan to work for two days and then wanted to stay on for a few days to get some sun, swim, and read my book; for that, this place was perfect. Hotels in Milan are expensive and this was excellent value for money; especially considering the pool.

눉Sadly this establishment wasn't up to par. When we got into our room it was dusty and the shutters were closed. The "Queen" size bed was two wimpy beds put together that had caused a big dip in the center of the bed. The treadmill was broken and the gym equipment didn't work well. They charge $50 euros just to clean your little kitchen if it's messy upon check out.
