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.

This is a simple hotel, with simple rooms, with a simple breakfast, that will do job.
If you want a pool, a breakfast with 3 miles and a runaway to put the car...this is not what you are looking for.

Once we had finished the Duomo we roamed down Via Dante towards the Sforza Castle which was built over seven centuries ago. Once the grand residence of Lord Francesco Sforza it later became used as an army barracks. It was in disarray after the Spanish, Austrians and French had run riot, in the early 19th century it was restored and opened as a museum and recreational venue. You can walk the whole way through the castle and to an open ...

We soon found out that in the city of Milano, the best way to travel was by subway!
So, as soon as we were picked up, we parked the cars in an underground parking lot and headed for the subway.
We took it to the "Duomo" which is the biggest cathedral in the city and we were told that it ...
... they have music or some sort of entertainment in the main plaza. On this night there was a concert of Italian Folk songs from my parents and grandparents generations. The whole town was there, old and young, singing along to the songs they knew. These songs dug deep into the history of the times, and this brought out many reactions among the people. Some would clap afterwards, and some would cry while they sung, but everyone was smiling when it ended. Marty made his ...
