Highs & Lows

  • Excellent price value. It's a rarity to find such an affordable hotel in the touristic center of Milan.

  • The bed is incredibly comfortable and the pillows are perfectly fluffy.

  • There are a million amenities in the bathroom, including tampons, body scrub and a very well stocked dental kit.

  • The rooms are perfumed upon cleaning. If, like me, the smell gives you an instant headache, make a note to reception.

  • The breakfast is a very sad affair.
