I came for the first time to this hotel in September last year, and have kept using it on business trips whenever possible.

The reception staff are extremely polite and have the good habit of smiling and playing milanese-style jokes, which can really cheer you up after a hard day's work. Check-in procedures are very smooth, and you'll get your room key in no time.

The rooms are very comfortable, their air conditioning system is perfect and the toilet showers work! (It's not to be taken for granted, you'll be amazed at how many hotels actually have a defective shower hose). Beds are good and an extra pillow is available in the shelf.

The breakfast can be a bit disappointing in that the selection of warm food is lousy, but then again we Italians aren't too much for bacon at 9 am.

The location is excellent, a few steps away from the main shopping district of Milan (Corso Buenos Aires) and from the nearest underground station. It's also near some of the best nightlife spots (Corso Como, the Central Station area).

Unique Qualities: Location, friendliness of the staff, perffectly functional shower.

Address: Via Lazzaretto
