Close to central, the surrounding neighbourhood seems a little seedy. Not much open at night.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Madison Milan
Great Room, Great Staff, Great Location
We just returned from a trip to Italy for a couple weeks in March 2004.
With the unbelievably low price we got for our room at the Madison Hotel, my husband and I didn't expect much. But, not only was it only a block and half from the central train station, it was a gem all on its own! The lobby was spacious and well-appointed. The staff on every shift were gracious, helpful, and professional. Our room was one of the largest we have ever had in Italy (we go every year). The bed was comfortable (and we are both over 6 feet tall). The bathroom was spacious, spotless, and recently remodeled. There was plenty of room to hang all our clothes, and places to keep suitcases accessible, but out of our way. We have a tendency to use different hotels every time we visit Milan so we can connect with the different neighborhoods.
However, we will be returning to the Madison Hotel next time. It was a fantastic experience.
The worst hotel
we have ever been. We stayed there for three nights because we had to.
* Staff very unpleasant, almost despising
* No mini-bar as written on the webpage
* No laundry possible for us (thought this was written on the webpage)
* Very expensive
* During the breakfast you may be charged for eating things not included in the bed and breakfast
* TV with just a few channels and of poor quality
Nothing more of an average 2 stars hotel for the price of a four stars.

Thank you for all your comments about the blog but we haven't quite finished yet! Still about 24 hours before we'll be on our doorsteps, a whole city still to explore and at least one more blog post! We reached Milan ok and our air b n b host greeted us at the station and escorted us to her flat!! Showered and dressed we set out on our last evening out. We found the canal we had been informed had lots ...
Been very busy last couple of days - just had time to catch up and I am a few days behind. We drove up to the local car ferry in Trezzamo The ferry was quick, we drove on and sat on the top deck for 10 minutes. When we arrived in Bellagio we had a lovely relaxing look round and a little shopping trip. We sat in the Hotel Du Lac ...
... 8221; route. Considering we were going by Bulgari, Dolce and Gabbana, Prada and the like, it wasn’t really shopping, but we got to see some fancy parts of town, see some quite interesting people, and wander around window-shopping. We ended up at a shi-shi (how do you even spell that description?!) bar for maybe the greatest tradition ever. “Happy hour,” yes even called that in Italian, is from 5-9pm, not from 5-6 or 5-7 like in the US, and includes a buffet ...
... 8pm. It doesn't get dark here until after 9 so that was plenty of time for me to explore another part of the neighborhood. I passed by the neighborhood park, Parco Solari. It has a dog park, a swimming pool, a jungle gym for children and a running path. Unfortunately, it also has high grass. I am almost convinced that this is really a Milan thing. We walked down Via V. Foppa to take in the sights. There was another Chinese Pizzeria. ...
... some snow, what doesn't Milan have? Our time in Milan was not only enjoyable but also relaxing, with our wonderful hosts making sure we saw Milan at her best as well as feasting every night on regional specialities. What ever weight we had dropped through our days of walking in Rome well and truly returned in Milan. Time to pick up our car and join that part of the world which drives on the wrong side of the road! And then ...
