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 …
I think we were on the road before 08:00 this morning. We had a very short uphill section from our overnight stop to rejoin the delightful road which runs over the Cisa pass, and then we were on our way. Again there had been a lot of rain in the night (once more with thunder and lightening) but it had stopped by the time we emerged. From then the day just got better and better and ...
... which is home to Il Duomo, the fifth largest cathedral in the world. It is an imposing sight over its namesake Piazza del Duomo, and attracts thousands of visitors every day. The exterior is in a constant state of renovation, still going from when we were here 9 years ago. From here we strolled the short distance to Castello Sforzesco, which has been built, rebuilt, expanded & renovated since the 14th century until it was handed over to the ...
... up the village from the lake. To get anywhere in the village means using the village tracks - translation goat track (if you are lucky). These tracks I are rough - cobblestones or bare earth, and tend to be very steep with lots of steps. We decided to walk up to the piazza and other shops then go to see the castle. From the Tre. Rose it is a set of steps up. Not too bad. Then you reach one of the minor car roads of the village that lead up and ...
