    « Room for improvement »

    The position of the hotel is great, just near the metro station. Since it was raining so bad when we arrived, this really came in handy. The breakfast was nice ( a lot of options ). I saw some comments about uncomfortable beds, but I really liked ours. It was a double bed ( not two beds joined ) and it was just ok ( not too soft, not too hard ). The noise coming from other rooms was literally too much. I have never stayed in a hotel where you could hear the other people as if they are staying in your room, too. Plus, if you have the "luck" to have neighbours like ours who played music up until 4 am and did burping contests...you will understand the issue.

    « Milan Design Week »

    First visit to Milan for design week, all hotels were very expensive. Yes this hotel is a little dated but it was clean and we found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Plenty of choice for breakfast, please see pics. The metro is just outside the hotel on the corner, very easy to get around. The hotel sells tickets at reception so much easier than trying to work out the underground machines. The hotel is situated on the Yellow line Lodi Tibb Day tickets are the best as you can use them as many times as you like and only €4.50 each We caught the bus from Malpensa airport to central station, then a taxi ride to the hotel. Taxi cost €15 We caught the fast train back to the airport from Caborna station. €13 and takes 40mins. Seem to be every half hour. There are not many restaurants around the hotel, we caught the tube to Dumo ( 4 stops) it brings you out in front of the catherdral. From here you can walk to most of the main attractions and find plenty of places to eat.

    « The most unfriendly staff in Milan »

    The customer service was absolutely terrible. People working in the hotel behaved like they worked there for a punishment. During the check in the documents were literally thrown to me. When called to reception and asked about WiFi I was asked if I bothered to check the hotel book. When I had breakfast I was pretty much kicked out from my table, because I happened to sit at a bigger one and apparently I should only use a single table. Understood the reasoning but the execution was extremely rude. All the staff looked angry all the time. At the same time the price was at quite a premium. I will avoid this hotel at all costs....

    « Practical but old-fashioned »

    Hotel Major must have been a major hotel in the past... But its glory has gone. The good sides: - it's practical for a visit or a business travel in Milan. The metro is literally located at the foot of the hotel and is 4 stations away from the heart of the city. - it has a definitely old-fashioned charm that is in keeping with the old tramways and the ancient decoration of the metro. - our bed was very comfortable, although it was the only thing that looked brandnew. - it is kept very clean (bedroom, bathroom, breakfast hall and corridors) Now for the down sides: - the shower could be more spacious - the staff could be a little more helpful and / or friendly - the decoration of the bedrooms is very old-fashioned, which we found both depressing and surprising in a 4-star hotel (but some visitors might find it quaint) On the whole, we don't regret the experience, but we may opt for another hotel if we go back to Milan. Please note the City of Milan asks for a 5 Euro tax pp and per day!!!

    « Good place to sleep »

    Second time here on business travel, and hotel is as expected. Last time was in a bit over a year ago, late summer or early fall. Not in downtown area, but along with subway line, easy to access, though I used taxi from airport about 16€ and about 15min. Nice typical Italian restaurants nearby, so our crew didn't go to downtown at all. Breakfast ok, nothing special to mention.

    « Think again before you enter this hotel »

    For This price you can find way better Hotels. I stayed in this hotel from the 20th until the 22th of October. The air-conditioner in the room works only from 07:00 to 09:00 in the morning and from 19:00 to 21:00 in the evening. The service was far below expectations. The breakfast was a like a nightmare. No Management should manage a Hotel like this; I won't be surprised to hear that hot water will be given only at these times as well.

    « Average hotel not worth the price »

    I stayed at this hotel for two nights and it's not to be excited about. A bar not really worth calling a bar, no restaurant, only breakfast restaurant. Bed was hard as hell and room safe was defective reopening it self

    « Nice hotel and very close to the Metro to get into Milan »

    We stayed at the Best Western Hotel Major for 2 days in Milan. We were lucky to get parking outside the venue, but you can also arrange a car park behind. The hotel is a bit tired and getting old but the staff were very helpful. The best location was to be able to go out into the centre of Milan and elsewhere on the Metro which is on the corner.

    « Close to metro and good value for money »

    This hotel is next to the metro so was convenient to get around. The room was clean and the bathroom was big (bigger than the room!). This hotel is good to rest your head at night while being out all day.

    « Very good hotel, excellent for metro, so-so local area »

    Very good city hotel for short break in Milan. Immediate locality has very little to offer but the hotel offers quick access to many Milan sights and attractions being right above Lodi metro station. Parking is very limited (and pretty pricey): make sure you book if you need it. Breakfast absolutely brilliant value at €4. Staff really friendly and helpful. Will happily stay again.

    « Spacious rooms, average view. »

    Good spacious rooms with an average view of the train lines. Good option to stay close to my business trip event venue. Tea/coffee making facilities available in rooms. Ok breakfast buffet. Nothing spectacular. Very much an average business hotel.

    « 4 train stops from the Duomo and main shopping area »

    « Very friendly hotel »

    Excelent location, with a very Nice and friendly staff, and a great breakfest included! Simple and very clean room. Excelent access even by car or train, and it is in the center of everything so can walk everywhere

    « Nice and clean »

    I arrived at midnight and the room was waiting - clean , nice , comfortable - everything I need for my stay . The price is very reasonable , quite area, communicative .... everything you would need for a stay in Milan I would recommend to visit

    « Pretty poor really »

    I will start by saying this hotel is very dated and could do with a refresh! My experience started in a pretty ridiculous way - I entered my room and headed straight into the bathroom where I nearly fell flat on my back. I checked the bathroom floor and it didn't seem to be wet. After removing my shoes and stepping back out of the bathroom I found the issue - the carpet was absolutely soaking!! I think it had been vaxed to clean it, but it wasn't even close to dry! What a joke. After that poor start I then had a very average nights sleep in a not particularly comfortable bed, followed by a pretty average breakfast. I don't have anything positive to say really.

    « Best Western Hotel Major »

    The hotel is located relatively far fro the center, about 2 miles, but there's a metro station nearby. They have a parking facility but we found a spot on the street in front of the hotel at €1/hr thru 8 pm (next day was Sunday, no charge). The room was decent size, the furniture old-fashioned but functional, good bedding. The breakfast was good too. Helpful staff and good wi-fi.

    « Annual business trip Salone del Mobile »

    Anyone attending the annual Salne del Mobile fair held at Fieromilano will know that location for accommation is essential. Location was within 1min walk from hotel to Metro. Perfect. Hotel reasonably located within Milan - access to metro made a big difference. Staying at Best Western hotels always guarantee a good breakfast. Really good spread with friendly service. Rooms clean and spacious. Views not great but this didn't worry us since we were out at the fair all day and it was a case of leaving early and arriving back late. Front desk service also friendly and were able to meet our needs with assistance where needed. Would definitely consider staying there again.

    « Very good hotel, near the center of town »

    What I liked? The location, close to the historic center, near the metro, which made movement anywhere in the city easy. The room- sufficiently spacious, bright and, very important, windows that can be opened. The hotel is placed in a quiet zone, tourists are not bothered by street noise. The bed and pillows are very comfortable, I also liked the good quality linen - spotless and changed daily. Toilet kit - good quality, updated daily. I liked the fact that there is room heaters, water and tea and coffee are free. Reception non-stop, free coffee and tea. What I don't liked? The soundproofing, you can hear the noise made by other tourists who (and this is not the hotel's fault!) shows a lack of respect and education.

    « Surprisingly good... »

    I stayed here on business and when I got there the greeting wasn't brilliant and the decor a bit dated in the reception area so I wasn't expecting much from the hotel. The room was clean, functional and plenty of room to work. The view was blocks of flats but not a problem for me as I was in Milan for meetings so wouldn't be in the hotel much anyway. Needing to prepare some work for the following day, and in desperate need of printing a document, I went down and spoke with reception (at midnight) and they couldn't have been more helpful. Document sent over and printed for me and when I asked about cost, they said it was no charge. Breakfast was good and plentiful with friendly staff. Overall a great little hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Don't be put off by the dated decor when going in.

    « Functional but with drawbacks »

    We stayed here for three nights recently. The hotel is air conditioned, basic but clean and functional. No charm at all but usefully located near the metro. There was a breakfast in the morning that we thought was complimentary but wasn't. Toast and coffee and fruit were fine; I would steer clean clear of the eggs and hot food. Front desk service was usually fine: they called taxis for us when needed and brought an iron to our room for us. The night before we left I asked about taking a taxi to Malpensa, and was told the time it would take and that they could call in the morning and a taxi would arrive in minutes. What we learned the next morning is that unless you called in advance, you couldn't guarantee a flat rate to the airport. Since a metered run to Malpensa can run well over 100 Euro, that would have been helpful information to know the day before...

    « Great hotel, but there are drawbacks »

    Nice hotel. Is located opposite the metro station. To the city centre 4 stops on metro. The area is not noisy. Nearby there is a large supermarket. A great Breakfast buffet. I had to call the receptionist and ask for the kettle, as it was not, also the Minibar was open bottle of water. You can order a iron in the room. Ordered Taxi to airport at the reception, we were assured that the taxi is 90 euros, but the taxi driver took 100.

    « Quick weekend trip, first time in Milan »

    Excellent location outside of the city center, next to Lodi subway stop and plenty of good restaurants and shops nearby. - Comfortable beds and clean and modern room and bathroom. - Excellent value for the quality and closeness to big attractions without the crowds

    « Excellent hotel, a little far from the heart of the city »

    I enjoyed this hotel very much. Rooms are big and clean, and the hotel is located 30 steps to one of the underground stations that runs directly to Duomo. However, if you want to walk to the heart of the city, it is a little too far. Good service from the staff.

    « Very good except for a hard bed »

    I have stayed at this hotel on a couple of occasions. It is just outside the centre of the city but is easy to reach, being adjacent to Lodi metro station. To get there from Linate airport is either two buses (73 then 92, costing €1.50) or a €15-20 taxi ride taking about 15 minutes. The room rate was very good for an hotel in a major European city. There was a single step to enter from the street with no obvious alternative entrance. The small lifts had quite narrow doors. My room was immaculately clean, large, quiet, despite overlooking the road, and had free wifi that worked well. Thankfully, the air conditioning worked very well and was quiet enough to leave on all night as it was over 30 degrees outside. Breakfast cost an extra €3 and was excellent - a huge choice of food, including scrambled eggs. The breakfast room was large and the fresh coffee was served quickly. The only downside of the hotel was the fact that the mattress on my bed was extremely firm and the pillows were also quite solid. I realise that mattresses and pillows are a matter of personal taste. The sheets were wonderfully crisp cotton. The front desk staff who spoke excellent English were efficient and very helpful, recommending a great restaurant a few minutes walk away.

    « Always a great hotel! »

    I have been to this hotel before, but this time I was given a room at the top floor which was very modern and clean. I loved the quantity of space available in the room and in the bedroom and the view. To me, this hotel is perfect because it allows me to be very close to the airport (Linate) and to my favourite area, Porta Romana. The quality/price value is very high compared to other hotels in the area. I saw there was an offer to include the breakfast for 1 extra euro per person - I personally didn't do it because I was meeting friends for lunch, but otherwise it seems like a great idea. Totally recommend the hotel to anyone!

    « Very basic hotel with metro stop just outside »

    Basic hotel room with a litte room to work and limited TV channels on a small flat screen. The check in was easy and as we were very early they had safes available to put our valuables an dlive or bags. The hotel is on a very busy road but the windows filter most of the sound HOWEVER the air conditioning is turned off nightly at 12:00 so if you need air you have to open your window and let in the traffic noise which doesn't seem to diminish until very late. The hotel does have lifts that are the typical small 1-2 people size. The room was clean and the wardrobe had regular hangars available and a safe for valuables. The pillows were not very comfortable which made sleeping a bit hard. Check out was smooth and they were able to call a cab for us which makes it cheaper than getting one on the street. There are no USB ports for charging phones but the hotel may have adaptors available upon request.

    « Nice room clean desk not very functional to work on »

    Clean and comfortable sufficiently quiet. I found the room more or less adequate for a 4 star hotel. Nice staff. like I said not very comfortable to work in because of the desk with the chair being too low making it extremely uncomfortable with a computer

    « Good. »

    Always good. Just like at home.. We always stay at this hotel when we are in Milano.. Staff there is friendly and good and breakfast is ok and fine.. If possible, you may re-design and re-construct all of the bathrooms.. It will be much convenient and easy to stay.. Bed can be also changed to the new one because current one is not confortable anymore..

    « Business Stay »

    I stayed at this hotel for one night for business travel. I was able to check in and access my room early (10am arrival), which is rare and was great. The rooms small but very comfortable, has everything you need and is nice and clean. The service was good, I did not eat breakfast but it was included and looked very nice. I would stay here again and would recommend it for short stay if the location works for you it is very well priced.

    « Good hotel »

    It's quite a good hotel if you're on a business trip or 2-3 days stay. It requires 10 minutes to get to the doumo (center). The staff are very helpful. The hotel offered us umbrellas and a lot of info on restaurants and so. I would recommend this hotel

    « Exactly what I expected »

    Overall, it's a nice place. The rooms are small, but does exactly what they should. The staff is friendly and got the right spirit. The desk was always manned by at least one english speaking staff member. Breakfast buffet was bland

    « Well situated, clean accomodation »

    Excellent parking facilities, nearby metro station, comfortable rooms, delicious and hearty breakfast. We spent two nights there. Wifi was good at the 7th floor. Good place! First night was a bit noisi, because a South Korean team, but the next was quiet. There's a place for parking in front of the hotel on the street. Not so expensive.

    Arrived and booked in very quickly by a professional chap with a smile. Very helpful with maps and directions. Room not huge but was clean, cool (34C outside) and shower with plenty of toiletries. See pictures - more than adequate for a one night stop over.
