Hotel 1 Maggio
TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel 1 Maggio Milan
The hotel was in the middle of nowhere, somewhere in some industrial zone. As we where excursion, it didnt really matter that much, but it was good thing that there where a little/no other people, so noone could complain about us making noise. The rooms are fine, very clean, the food in the restaurant was good, served hot, which is positive.

I had no idea he came up with all of that and in the 1500's! There was also a section on the Last Supper ...
... happening there (there wasn’t). I took the Metro back to the hotel and stopped at an ATM to get a bit more cash, as I wanted to pay cash for the hotel bill to get a 10% discount. Back in the room, I had a shower and got my packs organized for the long trip home tomorrow. It was a bit of a challenge to fit the two bottles of wine into the packs. I sealed them in plastic using Duct tape (which I always travel with) so even if ...
