      Historical Traveler Reviews Mokinba Hotel Cristallo Milan

      Reservation - what's that?

      from

      In January I booked and paid for a double room for three nights in March through easyjet hotels - Hotelopia.

      Arriving at reception - 'sorry, no room here tonight. Go to Hotel Colombia and come back again tomorrow.' A number of others got the same treatment when they tried to check in. Meanwhile a large group of young men had no trouble.

      It appeared that the hotel had made a commercial decision to accept a block booking although they did not have rooms available, and to send customers with reservations elsewhere for one night.

      So if you wish to spend your visit to Milan checking in and out of hotels, packing and unpacking suitcases, and walking the streets with your luggage, I can recommend a reservation at Hotel Cristallo.

      Christmas Cheer at the Cristallo!

      from

      I stayed at the Cristallo in Mid December and found the hotel to be excellent value for money... we paid around 80 euro per night for a twin/double room including a breakfast which contained items like fresh fruit (oranges, apples, bananas, kiwi fruits etc), hot croissants, cereals, boiled eggs, ham, fruit juices, mineral water, coffee, tea and of course cappuccino (dont know if i spelt it right) plus the staff were very friendly and helped direct us to the nearby shopping boutiques in Corso Buenoes Aries. The rooms themselves were ok but they are not the biggest. However, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean and quiet and our TV had both CNN and BBC World Service! I would suggest this hotel to anyone staying in Milan on a low to medium budget and who wants to be near the Main Railway Station, Shopping and Air Terminals i.e. where the buses from Linate and Malpensa drop you off.

      Shocking

      from

      I have just come back from Milan and stayed at the Hotel Cristallo and found it quite shocking. The thing is the holiday to Milan was an unexpected gift from my parents because they had to go to New Jersey for a wedding so they gave the holiday to us.

      When we arrived at the hotel it was rather basic. Im used to staying at 4+* hotels and was told by the company that booked the holiday for my parents that it was 4*. The hotel deserved a 2* rating.

      When we entered our room the decor and furniture was almost like self catering accomodation. Very basic. Me and my partner were so disappointed with the room and thanked god that we was only there for two nights.

      The bathroom was the size of a cupboard but was workable, the shower was surprisingly good and efficient.

      The breakfast was something else, in one word CRAP. but the breakfast room was clean atleast.

      I asked the hotel what *rating they were and they said 3*, even for 3* i felt it was below standard.

      The hotel staff were helpful and polite which eased the upset of staying at the hotel.

      In short this has to be the worst hotel i have ever stayed in and would never go back. Considering the price my parents paid to stay in this hotel, we were robbed. If your looking for nice surroundings then do not stay here, if your looking for nothing special then this is the place for your.

      Very Good Value And Clean ---- Not Disneyland.

      from

      My wife and I stayed at the Cristallo for three nights 24/03/04 to 27/03/04. I feel the price was reasonable at ?150 for a double room for that period. I have no complaints about service or value for money, lets face it, how difficult would it be to get the same deal in lets say London or even Glasgow?. Lets get something else straight, if you want false staff and pre-programmed "Have a nice days etc. GO TO AMERICA. However if you want to be around sincere people who arent out to empty your wallet, GO TO ITALY. What i would advise is to learn a few very basic words eg. GRAZIE, BUONA SERA etc. and approach Italians first, I am sure you will end up agreeing with me.

      Not bad at all!!!

      from

      For the price, the hotel is well above what it should be. It is conveniently located, easily accessible, and clean! The amenities are not top notch -- but then again, you're not paying top notch price!

      I've stayed in a plethora of cheap hotels across Europe (hostels & hostals included) and this is clearly above average for its star rating. Especially when you book on-line and get a cheap rate.

      Only good for the price

      from

      We stayed here in May 2003 for a cheap price of EUR0 60.00.

      The service was quite poor, the staff weren't very friendly or helpful, even when the hotel cleaning staff accidentally took my expensive pants to their outsourced cleaning company. They offered no apology, let alone some sort of refund.

      The rooms were very average, old and in need of refurbishment.

      The Breakfast was simple. Eggs, Crossaints, Prepackaged Cheeses, Juice.

      The hotel is only 5-10 mins walk from the mail train station/underground.

      Not bad for the price

      from

      Stayed for a few days in summer of 2002. We had a triple and the room was very clean and decently sized. Beds were comfortable. Front desk staff was not the most friendly or welcoming when we arrived (we had to wait a while before they got around to helping us) but we did arrive rather late at night. The next day the staff was much better. The hotel was very close to the train station, which was convenient. Our room was unfortunately near the elevator and there was a lot of noise from some other guests coming/going throughout the night. Otherwise our stay was fine.

      Miserable Milanese

      from

      We stayed at the Cristallo Hotel in Milan for a few days over Easter 2003. The hotel is well placed within a few minutes walking distance of the bus & railway station to the north of Milan. Getting about in Milan was pretty good from here - either a bit of a walk to the centre or walk to the bus station area and get a tram or the metro which both offer very good value & service (the only things to do so in Milan).The hotel is clean but the room was small and minor things need attention like our safe didn't work & some of the fitings were loose on the walls in the bathroom. The biggest problems were the staff and the bar - the staff were mostly abrupt (could be interpreted as rude) but then again, it seems that most of the Milanese were the same - I guess they aren't used to (or don't like) tourists!? The hotel bar was sad - very basic, expensive (as you'd expect from a hotel, I suppose) and the service was pretty shabby. There was no atmosphere at all in the bar - then again, there were no people! No-one in the hotel seems to smile or like to be asked to do their jobs - it's as if you're imposing on their time! The breakfast was ok - cereal, bread rolls, cream cheese (pre-packed), ham and boiled eggs, croissants, tea, coffee & juices - though didn't change & could get like groundhog day after a few days! Breakfast area was nice & clean if a bit clinical looking. Overall, probably ok for a couple of days for the price.

      ... are the cemeteries so I take her across the road to where the newer mausoleums are. Beyond that was the cemetery. I convinced her to defer the call to coffee to have a look. As she enters the gates, she looks around and wants to know where the Von Trapp family are hiding. It reminded her of a scene from The Sound of Music. The cemetery has fresh cut and growing flowers on almost every grave and mausoleum. The month of November (Holy Souls) explains this. Either end ...

      What A Night!

      Now where are all my party people?! In the city of Milan, Italy, the night does not begin
      until about 1 am. Back in Canada if someone is awake later than
      midnight, it is likely they are either in bed watching a movie with a
      bag of chips or bowl of ice cream (all you ladies, you know what i am
      talking about. We have alllll been there so please save the trouble
      of denying it!), or selling drugs in dark ...

      My time in Milan was spent walking around, visiting museums, photographic exhibitions, eating
      amazing meals, drinking good micro brewery beers and getting to know Cristina's friends and lifestyle.

      I even got to see 'The Last Supper' by Leonardo Da Vinci. This was an amazing surprise from Cristina as it's usually a few months waiting list to get in. They only ...

      2014 Sept. 30 - Tuesday

      It's hard to believe that my month in Europe is just about over and that I’ll be making the long journey home tomorrow. After breakfast I walked across to the station and bought my ticket for the trip to Milan. I decided to take a slightly earlier train (FrecciaBianca 9710) than originally planned, as there’s more to do in Milan and I couldn’t see any reason to stay longer in Peschiera. Again ...

More déjà vu tonight as the 10 of us who have arrived all went to the same restaurant we visited on the first night of the last tour. The food was again beautiful but the host did not offer up the free limoncello as he did last time, just the prosecca, bruschetta, a range of dolce biscotti. I again had the truffle ...
