6/10 Good

Property was in a good location as far as walking about town, but was unable to summon a taxi to our hotel on 2 different occasions. Staff just kept telling us that no taxis came to their hotel. Had we known this, we would’ve stayed somewhere else. Our room was quiet, but very small, including the bathroom.

The room was comfortable and very clean. Location is great as a few minutes walk from Malpensa Express station and a few minutes walk from Duomo. Check in was flawless. Will definitely stay there again

10/10 Exceptional

Definitely a good choice for single travelers or couples. We travelled with our little son, so it was harder in some aspects. Clean room, not big, but has a very high ceiling, which provide a spacious feel inside. Good free breakfast and very convenient location - just 5 minutes away from Duomo.

4/10 Fair

Noisy and simple
The hotel is under renovation which caused much noise and distress, you can't sleep in the mornings because of the bangings. Besides that the cleaning ladies doesn't seem to understand what the sign "do not disturb" means, cause they knocked on my door and barked in, every day for 3 days of my stay, even though I had my sign on the door.
