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.

We had a relatively quiet start to this morning as our walking tour did not start until 10.30. This gave us time to shower, pack, breakfast, vibes mums ( mum S was not answering) and Bethany. It is lovely to hear some news from home. We arrived punctually as that's how we roll and the guide did not turn up. A few others were there waiting as well. …
You sure notice the big city once you have spent some time in rural countryside. This is how we felt but I think it is justified as everything here is extra large. The Duomo (largest church in Europe and took over 500 yrs to build) begs to have a hundred pictures taken of it. Especially as it was in full afternoon sun. And the malls are huge with …
... pick up point followed by more waiting as the bus was late. Tour continues out to AC Milan home ground, we don't particularly care but may others do, Then back into the city when Julie remembers that the top that wouldn't fit had a zip at the back that she didn't undo which explained the problem. So we get off and satrt walking to the next stop when we come to another Beneton shop that has the same top and it fits with the zip undone. Everyone is happy, especially ...
Arriving in Milan late Monday afternoon left us no time for museums or churches, but we made good use of our evening exploring the Brera neighborhood, enjoying one last pizza, and wandering streets up to the Duomo -- for gelato from Grom and for last looks at the Galleria and extraordinary ...
... of our journey.
We were ready, but the Swiss weren't! The most memorable part of the journey was not the beautiful scenery, the picture postcard lakeside villages, the mountains, or the waterfalls. Instead, it was the 2 hour queue waiting to get through the 17km Gotthard-Strassentunnel on the A2. That meant our planned stop in Lucerne was abandoned, and we got to Strasbourg at about 9pm. In time for a late dinner in the restaurant next to the Ibis hotel we stayed at, and ...
