"Excellent well managed clean and comfy hotel + great location"
Just came back from 2 night stay in this hotel. The rooms are good size, modern and clean. Bed is very comfy, bathroom very nice and clean with branded toiletries. Modern flatscreen TV with SKY movies/sports channels (can change language from Italian to English in the menu). Check in was at 2pm and very smooth, we were greeted with a smile at the reception with a rose for my girlfriend. Breakfast was great with a great choice of food. We also used the spa which was free (almost - you have to buy a spa pack for 9 euro per person which includes flip flops, towel, scrub sponge). There's steam room, sauna, small pool and a relaxing area with some refreshments). The free wifi worked very well throughout the hotel. The hotel is right next to Porta Venezia metro stop (3 stops from Duomo). I can highly recommend this hotel and I would definitely stay again!
"Felt like a 2nd class guest"
Extremely disappointing stay: - my single room was minuscule (90x200 bed) and provided a shower room instead of the bathroom advertised on Booking.com. The shower room was so small you could not sit on the toilet because of the shower directly in front - the spa attendant did not speak English and couldn't answer my questions: I could not go to the spa - NO SOUNDPROOFING AT ALL. My neighbor took a bath at 1am and it felt like the bathtub was filling in my room: needless to say I could not sleep. The normal rate of the room was >120€/night (for an 8sqm room!), but I felt like a 2nd class guest. I got a last minute discount but had I known I would have gone to an Ibis hotel and I would've spent a better night. Sadly won't be coming there again.
"2 Times a year"
I go to Milan 2 Times a year and I always stay in this hotel since many years.. location is very good, in one of the big street. single rooms are a bit small but confortable. Breakfast is delicious, I enjoy it very much. Staff is always smiling and hospitable. I recommend this hotel.
"Very good location"
The hotel have a very good location, near a lot of famous shops. The rooms aren't something waw, but for a city break, will be just fine. Breakfast was good, not very various, but enough. what I've loved at this hotel is the restaurant, where i ate dinner and was delicious. You must try fish on the menu, is great!..and the wine is really good.
"Good, but with some caveats"
For a more comprehensive review, this will be separated into Good / Bad sections, as below: Very Good / Good: Localization - the hotel is right on Corso Buenos Aires, one of the Milan's main shopping and business areas. Just at the front of the hotel you can also find Porta Venezia Metro station, with easy access to basically all Milan's metropolitan area. Milan's Linate Airport is at an easy twenty minutes’ car drive. Breakfast - the Breakfast offered at Uovo Di Colombo restaurant is very good and superior to other hotels in similar categories, with a selection of Italian and International fares as well gluten-free pastries. Lobby & Common Areas Ambiance: it appears that the Hotel lobby and common areas were recently renewed, with an elegant feeling and ambiance if compared to hotels of a similar category. Service: Polite and efficient staff, always available to help and with some good indications about nearby restaurants and attractions. Minibar: Differently from other similar hotels, Cristoforo Colombo offers some free refreshments at the minibar (two bottles of water, soda and beer). Not so great / Bad: Bedroom furniture: Seems that some floors were updated but stayed at an older chamber. Although not a major problem per se or sufficient to spoil your stay, some bedroom furniture is showing tread and wear signs. The hotel should look to a general renewal of all its rooms in the nearby future Shower space: The shower space is scarce even for European standards. A mere 60x60 cabin which is uncomfortable for longer showers. Summary: A good hotel in a very nice area of Milan, but look for the remodeled suites - your stay will be much more pleasant.
