6/10 Good

Basic, unfriendly vibe
Basically fine, good for one night but not much more. To access the front door you have to go through an underground carpark which doesn't feel very safe or secure later at night. The communal area is a scattering of damaged tables and chairs arranged randomly in a concrete yard. The rooms are not locked, guests aren't given a key, so make sure you bring a padlock to secure your belongings! Close to a metro stop which can take you to the nicer parts of town. Don't think I'd return!

I was in Milan for a few days to sightsee and needed somewhere convenient and local to the city. The staff were friendly and went to great lengths to make my stay as comfortable as possible. I stayed in a room with five other beds and lockers were provided to keep my belongings safe.

Tuvimos un trato excelente con el personal del hotel, esta muy bien situado ya que la estación del metro está justo al salir y es directa con la parada del Duomo, repetiremos sin duda 😄

4/10 Fair

beim Einchecken sofort umgebucht
Das Hotel kann nicht bewertet werden, da sofort beim Einchecken gefragt wurde, ob wir mit einer Umbuchung auf ein besseres Hotel einverstanden wären. Wenn wir vorher gewusst hätten, auf was wir uns da einlassen, hätten wir auf die vorhandene Buchung bestanden, denn das "empfohlene und bessere Hotei" (Hotel Corvetto) hat nicht gehalten, was uns versprochen wurde.
