    « Comfortable »

    The hotel is nice and clean, very good for this price. Breakfast is good, rooms are comfortable. But it us not really near fro metro station and there are not many restaurants or cafes around. To Duomo- 25 minutes (from Amendola), to centrale- 40 minutes (from Loto) with 1 line change. Very nice district of Milan, silent and green.

    « Beautiful hotel »

    I came here to celebrate my birthday earlier on this year and the hotel was just gorgeous. Bedroom had everything you need, the restaurant was lovely (waiter was so generous - even gave us a basket of fruit with our meal). Taxis to the centre were roughly €8 which the receptionist kindly ordered for us and so many transport links. Such a fabulous hotel for a fabulous occasion :-)

    « Great small hotel »

    I stayed here for one night on my way to US and it met all my expectations. The hotel is near a metro station and easy to get into central Milan. There is a large supermarket next door for all your needs and several restaurants and cafes nearby to cater for your budget and taste. The staff were very helpful and rooms were clean and comfortable.

    « Pleasant surprise »

    The hotel is located in a very trafficked area but the windows are great to keep the noise out. It's clean and well kept. The entire staff, from the people at the front desk to the maids at the floors, is very polite and helpful . There was always a smile for you

    « Outskirts of Milan »

    Room was clean and had a safe plus fridge. The room was hot and we had to open the window as there was no air-conditioning which then made it quite noisy. The pillows were rock hard and uncomfortable. Breakfast was average. Staff were very helpful and keen to resolve any issues. Location of hotel is quite a way from the center of Milan although there is very good public transport nearby. We bought a 24hr travel ticket which allowed us to travel by any means of transport enabling us to see a lot of the city. We enjoyed eating out in the evening at The Primula across the road from the hotel. The food was excellent and reasonably priced for Milan.

    « Football match »

    This is the second time I have stayed at the Astoria both times for an event at the San Siro. The location is great with great tram, bus and underground links which go straight to the San Siro (tram) and Duomo (underground) The rooms are comfortable, the bar we ice is great and the breakfast is really good value. Would I stay here for a trip that didn't involve a San Siro event, probably not but only because I would want to be right in the centre. It is a really good, comfortable, functional hotel.

    Good location near to metro and bus to centre if Milan. Clean and comfortable hotel, nice rooms. Although on main road windows are soundproof. Breakfast very nice and well presented hot and cold choice. Nice restaurant across from hotel for dinner. Very reasonably priced.

    « Great location »

    Location was good not too central but not that far out from everywhere we wanted to be. Tram to San Siro took 5 minutes and the underground to the centre was only 10 minutes. Hotel staff were lovely and the rooms were small but clean.

    « Good for the San Siro »

    We stayed at this hotel as we were attending the Bruce Springsteen concert at the San Siro. The San Siro is approximately 20 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel room was small and comfortable. The staff especially the reception staff are friendly and helpful. The only downside is that the shower is on the small side. We would stay at this hotel again if we were attending an event at the San Siro.

    « Good Value »

    Stayed there form 6-13th July and booked through Trivago. £315 for 2 B&B in Milan is very good value indeed. Good variety of breakfast, create your own fresh juice too. The room was of good size and toiletries were of a good selection too. No need for hair conditioner in Milan. The only criticism I have is that there were no drawers to put your clothes in like for t shirts and underwear. There was a mini fridge in the room which was good for keeping snacks and drink in. I would recommend this hotel for location as only a max of 10 mins walk from Lotto Metro which takes you to the centre of Milan. Flying into Linate, get the 73 bus to San Babila and then onto the Metro at the Duomo on the M1 Red Line take the rho fiera milano line to Lotto all for 1.50 euro.

    « Average »

    Nothing bad nothing great. Just an average hotel with prices aligned to the quality it offers. I have been there a number of times, the staff was always nice, breakfast good enough, the rooms are a bit old but clean.. The only thing i was disappointed about is that the hotel claims to have an "environmentally friendly policy", so they'd change the towels only when one leaves them on the floor. In reality they don't seem to be applying this policy, and change towels and all every day. Not very environmentally friendly.

    « Great for a quick overnight stay »

    Whilst on a driving holiday through Europe we ended up arriving in Milan very late and looking for somewhere to stay. We stopped at the Best Western Astoria and the young man on reception was extremely helpful and booked us in. He even gave us directions to a secure car park nearby where we could leave our car overnight. The room, whilst basic, was clean, comfortable and had all necessary amenities, including tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was clean and we were happy with the quality of this hotel for the price.

    « Great location, San Siro is at walking distance. »

    The hotel was easy to find using the metro, 2 stations within walking distance. I really enjoyed the service except the A/C was kind of hard to figure out but the weather was awesome so I liked having the window open and hearing Italy through my window. TV, restroom all the basics including a safe are in the room. Angela at the front desk was really great and the breakfast was amazing. Great value, my visit was to go watch AC Milan play, I walked to the stadium and was there in 20 min, great restaurants in the area. Loved it

    « Champions league Final »

    This hotel was ideally located for my business trip to the 2016 champions league final, it was within easy walking distance and much cheaper than the inflated prices of all the other Milan hotel. Single room was adequate for my 2 night stay. I did not get back to the hotel until 2.45am and did not really want to go to sleep but they would not serve me a relaxing beer which was very disappointing. The bathroom was a little small and poorly laid out, toilet stuck behind the bidet in the corner !?! Breakfast was good.

    « Good hotel, good breakfast »

    Stayed in Milan for 4 nights in May 2016. Really enjoyed our stay at Best Western Astoria. It was quite "businessy" which I presume is their target market. Nonetheless , breakfast was really good, very varied covering both continental and English breakfasts. Everything you needed was provided in the room, TV, safe, fridge (inc Minibar) hairdryer. Reception staff were also very lovely. Only down sides - it's a bit out of the main part of Milan, but Amendola station is about a 5-10 minute walk away. The rooms are slightly dated, but not unliveable in. It was 24 degrees during our stay and we had the "air con" on the coldest possible and it just didn't keep us cool at night, whilst still being warm.

    « Visiting for football match »

    Stayed as it was a deal with the football tickets. Walking distance to San Siro. Metro close enough to get in to city centre. Staff really lovely. Barman remembered our drinks order the second evening. Breakfast good. Rooms a bit small but clean and did the job. Good inexpensive hotel. Would recommend.

    « Offers a safe garage 24/7 service for a reasonable rate »

    The place is near to Bus connecting Metro line at Lotto (or 10 min walking distance), near to good restaurants. Clean and tide. New sound damping windows. Good selection of breakfast buffet. Friendly and helping-hand staff.

    « Solid Hotel in Milan »

    My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights specifically with it's proximity to San Siro Stadium to attend an AC Milan soccer match. It could not have worked out any better with it being a short 15 minute walk away. It is also very close to a Metro stop and has some very good restaurants/supermarket nearby. Front desk staff were very helpful.

    « Be aware of the city tax!!! »

    Hotel in a good location outside of Milan centre which covers all the basics for this type of holiday- as we didn't spend much time in the room. Room consisted of a bedroom with a double bed and bedside tables, a desk, a wardrobe, a TV, a mini bar (use at a charge) and a safe which was free of use and a kettle and tea bags which was also free to use. The bathroom included a reasonably sized bath with shower fitting overhead, sink, toilet, boudet, hair dryer and a pull-out washing line. Fresh towels and linen was provided every day of our 3 night visit. The hotel also provided wi-fi that worked quite well in our first floor room. There was a thermostat in the room that we didn't use so can't really make a comment on that. Can't fault the continental breakfast and the staff were lovely. One thing we was not aware of until checking out is a €5 city tax per person per night- which is worth knowing as you've usually spent up by the time your leaving! In terms of location there are patisseries and restaurants nearby, a supermarket next door and a cash machine around the corner. About a 10 minute walk away there is a really nice (on the expensive side) restaurant called Da Vic which has great reviews on here- you have to book in to avoid disappointment! There is a bus (which I believe is free- we just got on at the back) opposite the hotel which 2 stops down takes you to the local underground lotto (or can walk 10 minutes). The lotto line connects directly to San Siro stadium and to Duomo (the Cathedral) or can change lines once to go to Milan Central, but there isn't much there other than the bus back to the airport. The underground can seem pretty daunting at first but it is actually really easy to use, cheap and really clean- puts the underground/trams in the UK to shame. For people who are not really into museums and galleries like myself, I would recommend Monza park as an alternative activity which we really enjoyed. The main reason for the trip was to see the San Siro stadium. Also at Monza park is the Monza formula 1 grid for those into sports or F1. Another thing worth mentioning is it's worth paying to have use of your mobile phone! Taxi ranks are few and far between, it's easy to get lost, and not as many people speak good English as I expected! I hope this review is helpful, as I have tried to mention things I have not seen mentioned in other reviews.

    Only stayed one night on a business trip, however a very pleasant stay, welcoming staff nothing was a problem. Very comfortable bed, rooms on the small side but very clean and had all the facilities your need. Recommend this hotel and Da Gaspare restaurant a short walk away, which was recommend by the hotel owner.

    « Great hotel. »

    This was a nice hotel close to public transit. It is about a 15 minute walk to the subway or less than 5 to the tram that takes you to the subway. Just be aware this hotel is not in a tourist area. Which is both good and bad) The free breakfast was great, eggs, meats, cheeses, yogurt, fruit pastries, fresh juice and coffee.

    « Great place and friendly staff! »

    The hotel is near the metro station and bus station and it is also near the main streets with shops and restaurants. You can walk like 15-20 minutes to Duomo. They have a rich breakfast, with everything including a mini bar with cheese selection. Our room was clean and quite big. The bathroom was great, we had shampoo, bubble bath, lotion and cover hair. We also had free wifi in our room. When we left we bought 2 urban tickets from the reception and i had only 2,70 euros, but the tickets were 3 euros. The receptionist gave me the tickets and said that i don't have to give him the other 30 cents. This shows how much they care about the customers and how nice they are! I will surely comeback at this hotel. It had everything i needed! Thank you!

    « Cheap and cheerful »

    The Best Western Astoria is a well priced hotel with friendly staff and a decent location which is a short train ride away from central Milan and the San Siro football stadium. I wouldn't recommend for couples as it is single bed style and the beds are very very firm and quite uncomfortable. If you're just on a getaway with friends it should be fine. Be sure to check out the La Primula restaurant around the corner if you stay here. It's outrageously good!

    « The bath cabin is the smallest one i have ever seen in hotels »

    Location : if you are in Milan to attend an exhibition in the Fiera Milano, then this hotel is a good choice to make. It is near a Metro station, bus lines passing right on the front street, and there is a Simply supermarket just next door. If you are there for shopping then this is not a very convenient area to be at. Hotel Room : very small, not much space for anything else but sit and sleep on the bed. The facilities and room and hotel decoration is equal that is of a rate of USD 60 in Jakarta while Astoria charged nearly four times that. There is a very clear street noise that can be heard from the rooms. Bathroom : very small, and yet they fit a bidet. The shower cabin is the smallest one i have ever found in a hotel. Wifi : worked well and good speed. Breakfast : Very good! They have an orange juicer that is great to use for making a glass of fresh juice.

    « Great staff »

    Visited here when I attended Host exhibition, the staff were extremely helpful recommending great restaurants and different drinks at the bar would definitely stop here again. The room was perfect for a business stay with everything you need and breakfast was good.

    « Good Location, Helpful Staff »

    My fiancé and I went for a weekend away and got a good price on this hotel for 3 nights. We found that it was easy to get to use the Metro from main station. The room was a good size. It was clean and everything we need was there. The breakfast was a nice buffet style setup. Both of us ate very well before the day's outings. The staff at the front desk were very helpful when I ask about information on the football on the Sunday evening. And also some nice places to eat around the vicinity on the Saturday night when we just wanted to stay close and have an early evening. It's easy to get into the city centre with 2 Metro Stations nearby, the journey only took about 10 mins to get there.

    « Pampering City Hotel »

    We stayed at the hotel for two nights September end and enjoyed every minute! The hotel staff was very welcoming and professional. Parking arrangement (not on premises) with clear instructions was adequately organized. Location was great for fair balance between cost and traveling distance to city center. Rooms were meticulously clean and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and varied, an absolute pleasure. Hotel facilities were spotless and pleasant. Can't wait to stay there again, for a longer stay next time we visit Milan.

    « An Excellent Location for a Visitor With No Car »

    My wife and I had the opportunity to stay ten days at the Best Western Hotel Astoria in late August/early September. The hotel is in a location that is conducive to a great room at a great rate, as well as situated where all public transportation hubs are accessed easily... well, except for an airport. Overall the hotel was more than clean, and more than friendly. English is spoken well here, and the benefit of this became advantageous over the course of ten days. The staff's willingness to assist us in obtaining good food, good transportation, and recommending local sites to visit were greatly appreciated. Aperitivo there was a friendly and fulfilling interlude when our schedule put us there to take advantage of relatively inexpensive, yet great-tasting drinks and a relatively wide selection of finger food. Breakfast, however, was one Hotel Astoria activity not to be missed. There was a wide variety of -great- food and commensurate excellent service. Don't ignore any offers for morning food! Our hotel room was well equipped and quiet, with the exception of two evening's worth of thunderstorms. Climate control within the room was easy to use, and efficient. We had no opportunity to use guest services much with the exception of an additional trash can placed in the room, and laundry service. Laundry service is expensive but the results of the service were excellent. The furnishings and room sections such as closets, floors, and bathrooms were of high quality and in good shape. Our visit to Milan put us out of the hotel the majority of each day, so other accommodations the hotel offered were not used while we were there. When we were in our room, we really appreciated the quality and cleanliness of the bed and bedding. Television channels were aplenty, and included a few English speaking ones, although I have to admit it was more entertaining watching old Italian movies. My recommendation is to definitely put Hotel Astoria on your list of hotels to consider while planning for and visiting Milan.

    « F1 basecamp »

    We stayed here for 6 nights for our honeymoon. We mainly used it as a base for the f1 at monza. Room was nice and tidy. Staff were always friendly and polite. Couldn't ask for better. We used the room service for 1 night as got back late, pizzas were good value and nice and big, certainly did the job. Would recommend in Milan.

    « Good hotel »

    A very nice trendy hotel with a modern dinning area. Good breakfast nice variety of choice. Very friendly and helpful staff. A fair but pleasant walk to the metro be aware of coming out of the wrong exit as there are quite a few I found the loto metro easier as you just keep mc Donalds on your right as a land mark but both stations are easily accessible and the metro is brilliant not only for prices but the ease of use. My only complaint was a noise issue a constant rumbling sound whether it was the water heating, air conditioning I even wondered if it was the metro I was in a room at the end of a corridor and wondered if I had a riser unit next door with some form of power source. I checked lower floors which also had this rumbling sound going on one night I found it hard to get back to sleep and became a little frustrated with this constant noise. Apart from that I really liked this hotel and is easy to from the Milan Cordona.

    « nice hotel, but far from the centre of town »

    we stayed here because we had a voucher from a travel-website, and had a verry cheap rate, so I don't have to complain about the distance to the city centre, which is actually okay, a short walk to the tube, and from there, in a couple of minutes you're in the centre and near the railway stations. But if you're not accustomed to the city, this plice is hard to find. Anyway, staff, rooms, breakfast and service are what you could expect in a "Best Western". I suppose this is an ideal place to stay for businessmen, but for tourists, i'd recommend to stay somewhere closer to the centre, unless, like us, you can book the rooms at verry cheap prices
