    nice staff and amazing location

    i thought it could be a little more cozy, like small things in the room that need to be fixed

    Great location for the city, attractions and everything you could want. Also convenient for La Scala Opera house - in fact within walkng distance easily!

    Tea / Coffee making facilities would be nice and no Mosquitos - I got eaten alive!!

    Hotel staff very good. Excellent location on walking distance Duomo & Last supper.

    The location was very good, a short walk from the Duomo. The breakfast was also very good.

    I had a very bad experience with mosquitos in the hotel, I was covered in bites during my stay. I stayed in October and was not expecting mosquitos in Milan. I also asked for a cup of tea one evening (which is offered as room service) and the young guy at reception kind of gave a grunt as to say-he couldn't be bothered. So I just got a can of coke instead. It was also very loud, as a large group of girls were staying there too.

    Chic functional clean rooms inGeniusly designed for organized practical use. Modern decor, good lighting; safe is easy to use & large enough for electronic equipment. Co-owner/manager Marco understands customers & can answer just about anything (in many languages) & anticipates their needs: got me in to fully- booked "The Last Supper"; pointed direct routes to varied sites, places to eat, giving exceptional time/attention to accommodate this solo patron. Staffed 24/7; good & varied breakfast in a room where acoustics don't beat you down; virtual on-call taxi service arrives within 4-5 minutes at any hour. Loved my 4 nights there & would return in a minute. I went to Milan only for La Scala and the Duomo. Marco at Genius Downtown showed there's so much more to see & do. Will go back again!!

    location very nice older lady at the reception

    very thin walls - disturbing sounds from the neighboring room extremely uncomfortable bed poor breakfast

    The hotel has very good location - just 5 minutes from the Central Railway Station to take tram express to airport Malpensa. Additionally, 3 minutes from Castello Piazza where usually in the mornings shuttles to outlet Seravalle departs from .

    The heating system is not stable and can fluctuate several times per night. Though staff of the hotel provided me with a heater after my call to reception. The conditions inside of the rooms are more than modest, the furniture is old and my room was very small lke in hotels with 2, not 3 ***

    The hotels proximity to Stazione Cadorna and Il Duomo and the nice modern rooms.

    I had two large suitcases and the man at reception saw me struggling to bring them into the hotel, but didn't help.

    Very well located

    Breakfast was very poor, and I remind you that in italy the shuttle service is charged.

    9.0

    The hotel was very clean and in a location within easy walking distance of many sites. Itw as on a nice, quiet street as well.

    The walls were thin, so any noise in the hallway is heard. There is only one small elevator, no stairs to walk up/down, meaning one sometimes had to wait to get up or down.

    The room was clean and it was warm.
