Genius Hotel Downtown, Milan
Perfect location, will return
The hotel genius downtown is a cute VERY quiet (it’s on a little side street alley) modern boutique hotel located in the center of the main Milan attractions, restaurants , shopping, metro and tram. It is also very convenient to the Cadorsa train station (8 minute walk), especially if you are coming from MXP airport. ( The express train will bring you to). We stayed in a triple room, which was a little small but it is not surprising for Italy hotels. The bathroom shower could use a glass enclosure as it is covered by a curtain that allows the water to get to the bathroom floor and you will need to use towels around it. The soap inside the shower, is supposed to be good to use for hair, but that was not clear to us. There is no hair conditioner, so bring a little bottle if you need one. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of variety including fresh crepes and fresh omelettes. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Despite the few negatives mentioned of the room, we would definitely come back. The price for the hotel is reasonable for the excellent location when you compare it to other hotels near by. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Milan and want to be in the middle of everything, yet on a nice quiet street to get a good nite sleep.

Just OK
Pros: Good for one night. Great location, friendly staff. Cons: dark room with no views, no coffee maker in the room and no coffee available in the lobby ( indicates under amenities: "Coffee/tea in a common area." That was not the case when I stayed at the hotel). For those with early morning departure, no breakfast boxes nor coffee available. Breakfast begins at 7:00am.

Great location, Very friendly and helpful staff
The hotel has a great location, friendly staff, wonderful breakfast etc. My only complaint would be that my room was next to the only elevator and was noisy all night long. Also, the bed was not comfortable in my room although my group had a second room on another floor and it seemed great all around. I would still highly recommend for location and helpfulness of staff. They might have offered to move me but I never said anything because we were only there 2 nights.
