    New hotel with fantastic service

    What a pleasant surprise close to Central Rail Station, with a new, clean and modern hotel that really does delight from the moment you step in the door. A family room consists of interconnecting rooms, but this is a real positive for a family that's just experienced the long train ride from Paris. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome on our first trip to Italy.

    Functional but adequate for most tastes

    from

    Stayed at Hotel Splendido at the end of September having booked it both on price and proximity to the Central Station. On both of these counts it was good value. The facilities are bog standard, functional but ok for 2/3 nights. It is very good for transport into the centre of Milan and of course for trains to other towns ie we went to Bergamo for 4 euros single which is an amazing deal. Also the bus from Bergamo airport stops at the Central Station so you just have to walk across the road. Be warned however that there are some flakey people hanging around the park outside so take care particularly at night. Good value for what you pay

    Enjoyed my stay

    from

    Stayed here over Easter 2004 and had a wonderful stay. Staff were friendly and helpful, providing maps and tourist info.

    The surrounding area, the large square in front of the main train station, left a bit to be desired and I maybe wouldn't recommend it to single women travellers.

    The hotel is within walking distance of the main sights but it's so close to the train and metro station that you don't really need to walk anywhere if you don't want to.

    Avoid this hotel

    We stayed in this hotel for one night. It was recommended to us by the Central Hotel Reservation Desk in Milan Central Train Station. We were told it was a lovely hotel.

    How wrong. It could not be a four star hotel. We booked a room with a double bed. The room had twin beds. The room was shabby and badly needed to be redecorated. The bathroom was not as bad but still needed to be redecorated. The hot tap made a very loud squeaky noise continuosly.

    The staff in reception were most unhelpful. When we complained about the room the girl said they could not do anything unless we wanted to pay more money. They could not even give us a room with a double bed. Later when we went to collect our room key we met a man in reception. He threw a piece of paper in front of my husband and told him to sign it. When my husband went to read it he told him it was passport registration and just to sign it.

    Breakfast was not very good. Not four star standard.

    We will never stay in this hotel again.

    Be aware, 4-star is not the same everywhere...

    from

    Hotel was fine, had some problems with staff downstairs.

    As a same sex couple, we had booked a double bedroom with a double bed.

    When we arrived in the hotel, a member of staff downstairs made it clear he wasn't happy with us staying over. "What do we have here??" were the actual words. Instead he gave us a double bedroom with two separated beds put together.

    Though satellite TV facilities are advertised, all the channels offered are in Italian language... (only the CNN is available, but quality is too poor to watch it...)

    Staff at the restaurant and cleaning staff were really nice. Breakfast was acceptable. Rooms are clean and tidy, although room carpets were worn out.

    The hotel is no way near points of interest. They are only accesible by tube or bus. Unless you are ready to walk and walk and keep walking.

    The hotel needs some renovation, probably of both, some staff and interiors.

    A very early start this morning to get to the train at Gare de Lyon (near Notre Dame) for 7.49am departure on TGV. To make sure we avoided getting stuck in the Paris traffic, we left our hotel at 6.15am. Good news though that there is plenty of time for a snooze or two on the 7 1/2 hour train ride to Milan. TGV is notorious for prompt on-time …

    ... The Older church is no longer used but well maintained. It has exposed original mosaic flooring in places and frescos cove parts of the walls,. Some of these are in fairly good condition. There is a large wooden cross on one wall with somewhere below it where the locals can light a candle. It turns out that this is the Baptistry of the Newer church. The newer church next door is very ornate. A man is playing the organ so we do not take any photos or stay long. The TD ...

    ... loved this city.

    I arrived at possibly the most beautiful train station in the world, where I met Cristina before heading to her place.

    One of the things I loved most about Milan was the graffiti and Street art.There is a lot of bad graffiti around the city, adding to the grungy feel I loved so much, but if you keep your eyes open you will spot some masterpieces waiting to ...
