Historical Traveler Reviews Milani Hotel Rome
The hotel is located near the Termini Station which is well-located for metro, bus and intercity transport but is quite seedy, especially at night. The rooms of the hotel are clean, but the bed-side lamps did not work and it took a couple of days for the hotel staff to fix them. Breakfast was very ordinary, and not worth bothering with. Our main criticism was that one of the front desk staff was very rude and abrupt with us. Would look for something better if we were to return to Rome.
We stayed at the Milani in October 2005 and were satisfied with the standard of this hotel. We didn't want to pay too much, yet didn't want to be in a sub-standard hotel either. The Milani was great for this. The staff were friendly and took time to explain all things Roman, provided us with a map and directions etc.
The room was OK, small but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was new and everything worked well.
Breakfast was OK, the scrambled eggs were hideous though with a faint tinge of green. One of the hotel staff hooked us up with a fantastic tour guide who gave us a private 4 hour tour of Rome which was much better than jumping on a bus with 30 other people.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to those who see a hotel as nothing more than a place to shower and sleep in comfort and cleanliness.
Down at heel......
We stayed at the Milani in September this year. Although three star, the hotel was not great. We had stayed there a few years ago and found it much better. It was grubby. The breakfast was awful. In a city which prides itself on its coffee, the version of the morning pick me up we got was nothing short of disgraceful. The juice was a watery concoction of who only knows what. It is a pity as the hotel staff are incredibly helpful and professional which is a plus.
Loved the Milani Hotel
We have been in the hotel at the first days of October 2005. The crew was very nice and freendly, the room was big and clean, free Internet access in the loby, very reach breakfast and the location is exellent near the Termini Station (we walked all over Rome by foot from the hotel. Highly recomended !
stayed in the milani for one week.it was our first time in italy & the staff helped make our stay a very plesent one.the room was clean and well equipped.the hotel is in a good location near the 'termeni' train & bus station.if there was a draw back it would be that if you arrive home late at night the area around the train station seems to be a meeting point for A LOT of homeless people.walking past these people as the camera packing tourist makes you rush home.over all can't fault the hotel.
Enjoyable stay at Hotel Milani
We stayed for 5 nights at Hotel Milani , which is only 4 mins walk from the Termini. We found the hotel spotlessly clean and really enjoyed our stay there. The staff had excellent english and were polite but not overly friendly, like a large number of Italians we met, especially those in the tourist offices. I had heard that around the Termini was unsafe, but we had absolutely no problems, you're on your guard really wherever you go on holidays. Being close to the Termini did have advantages in that it was very convienent when arriving and leaving Rome for the airport. We had dinner a few nights in a small restaurant which was 2 mins away from the Hotel on the left hand side. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent and good value for money.
Great Location clean and bright hotel
I have just stayed at the Milani and I have to say I was really pleased with it. It is very clean in my experience with lovely marble throughout, so cool in the high temperatures. Also, I could not find one thing to complain about regarding my breakfast. I think the location is great, right beside the termini, so convenient for getting round Rome by bus. I think you have to be careful EVERYWHERE at night now, regardless of the city, country or area you are in. I personally didn't feel nervous or see trouble at any stage so would not criticise the area at all. The staff were fine, polite and helpful. For the money we were very happy with it anyway.The hotel location was also handy to catch our train down to Sorrento - it was great not having to drag bags across the city. Top tip: there is an amazing little restaurant around the back of the hotel to the right...I had the best pizza of my life there!! It's like eating from someones home kitchen..really fabulous. So cheap too so top marks!
Stayed at Hotel Milani from 8-15 September. Lovely room - air con, tv... bathroom a little tired. Hotel staff were fluent in english, very polite however not overly friendly. Location was close to Stazione Termini however a long walk [or short metro trip] to most sights. Area near Termini can be a bit dodgy at night.
Two hotels in one. Make sure you're given the right side
When we arrived we were given the old part of the hotel -reception to the right-. It was old, dark, 1970s style, and the cleaning standards in room 104 were terrible - dust, telephone or door frames hadn't been dusted for ages. It wasn't worth the money we had paid at our travel agency. After complaining, we were given a room in the refurbished part of the hotel- reception to the left-. We found ourselves in a completely different world; a comfortable, new, clean, light, well decorated room which I can recommend anybody. The breakfast was ok, -very nice and friendly waiter-, although tables where other guests had had their breakfast before would need a more efficient cleaning.

I feel I should preface this with a quick summation of our eating situation: Dan is celiac and allergic to fish. I am allergies to shellfish. Eating is always an adventure for us, especially when we don't speak the language.
We sat down, ordered wine and San Pelligrino, and waited for menus. None came. 5 mins later, a very friendly Italian man came over with a cart filled with fresh fish ...

As we went past they all quickly picked up their stuff as the police were coming. We noticed when we were in the Forum that two of the Indian men who were balancing one on the other were being covered with a large bit of material by another Indian. We figured they were getting down or something or having a break. ...

Some of us spent that evening participating in a tasty Italian cooking course which turned out to be one of the best meals of our trip - all cooked by members of the group, with the help of our master chef, Francesco Ariano. Lip-smacking good!!
Hiking in Cinque Terra is our next destination. I've heard so much about this area. Hope it is great!
We continued on through Ostia's site museum and towards the Forum, Cardo Maximus, and the ancient coastline where multiple temples and the ruined synagogue beckoned invitingly. Just as we were launching off from the air-conditioned museum into the mid-afternoon heat, I made the epic mistake of actually handing Julie the site map at her request. It was a classic "I've been by myself for a month" error! And as fast as ...
