    25 minute walk to the duomo along the biggest shopping street. Metro station in 2 minutes away. Great location! Very friendly staff and breakfast buffet for 3€. Room was very clean. Loved staying there!

    « Fantastic Best Western Hotel City Milano »

    What a delightful stay at a delightful, friendly, professional and clean hotel. The hotel is very centrally located close to the Central Train Station (either a 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride) in a fantastic shopping street and a 20-25 minute walk away from the Duomo di Milano. We were greeted warmly and offered hot drinks and pastries on our arrival. After dropping off our luggage and freshening up in our spotlessly clean room we were then offered a free welcome drink of Prosecco and nibbles. For an extra 3 Euros per person we had a delicious and endless buffet breakfast. You cannot fault this hotel - extremely friendly, helpful staff, clean facilities, great wifi. We are happy to recommend this hotel and hope to stay again. Thank you

    « Good hotel in a central location in Milan »

    This is a great hotel in a very central location , A/C works amazingly, spacious, quiet and clean room , we did not give 5 stars only because we expected more diversified breakfast , such as fresh fruit , and not canned ones. Whole wheat buns ( which run out way too early) , and more variety of eggs. Staff at the breakfast room at totally indifferent at you . Need improvement in this matter only !!!!!

    « Even for an economy class hotel it lacks a lot »

    Even for an economy class hotel it lacks a lot. Although very new the hotel it didn't have A/C working. Come on! Paid more than 3 hundred euros and had to sleep with windows open and surrounded by mosquitoes?!

    « A good balance of everything »

    This hotel had everything I wanted - it was within walking distance of our drop-off point at Milan Central station, it was easily walkable to the main sights, it was a good price and it served breakfast. On top of that, the room was a decent size and was in good condition, and the staff were helpful. Its on one of the main shopping streets in Milan, and this made the walk into the centre more interesting. I'd definitely stay there again.

    « Cancelled flight lead to a night in Milan »

    When it snowed in NYC my flight home from Rome was cancelled. Norwegian was being super unhelpful so we booked ourselves a new flight home from Milan. We booked our reservation through hotel tonight (worth noting: the hotel website was a few euro more expensive for the rate) and when we checked in the concierge told us we were in a 1 bed room. As my friend and I are not a couple we were hoping for two beds. The concierge said we checked in too late and our reservation was too last minute to have many options, but when I said I totally understood as we were here last minute due to flight cancellations, he seemed to gain some sympathy for us. Next thing we knew he called housekeeping to see if anything else was available and we got into a bigger room with a balcony with a sleeper couch. The room was pretty big too! We had a great stay, and loved the complimentary welcome drink & 3 euro breakfast buffet. Close to the Centrale train station and everything we needed!

    We had a very good weekend break at the Hotel City. The room was not huge but very clean and comfortable. The staff on reception were very helpful and friendly. Excellent breakfast. A good location for getting around the city. Recommended

    « Wonderful experience on business trip »

    Me and my colleague had travelled to Milan on business and checked in to Best Western City. The hotel has numerous advantages - central location at the heart of Milan with easy access to train station, central shopping area and the Duomo. We were delighted by the service and amenities on offer - Special mention to Alberto (at the reception) who was extremely efficient and helpful in guiding us on travel options, eateries and other necessary know-how on the area. I would definitely check-in to Best Western City during on upcoming trips to Milan.

    « Positive and long overdue »

    I wasn't a Trip Advisor person until lately. But this BW really is nice. I loved the fact that there was a lot of shopping on this street. The staff was nice. I was there 10/2016. There's a great restaurant next door. I might stay downtown if I ever go again.

    « Great staff »

    Not bad for in inner city hotel, but made great by the staff at the front desk. On two consecutive nights we were booked into excellent restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. Breakfast is adequate with a reasonable range of food. My room was at the back of the hotel with a small balcony. View was not great, but it was dark most of the time. The only minor gripe is that the cold water pressure seemed to be very low. This meant that you either got scalded or had a drizzle from the shower.

    « Not the best »

    The hotel is right on the Corso Buenos Aires so in a good location for high street shopping. The entrance is tucked away in an arcade so it's quite easy to miss. The room I was given was a very decent size with a huge bed. The decor was probably from the early 2000s and was a bit rough around the edges. The sink unit was very large and took up so much room that you had to use the loo sideways. The towels were thin and my shower leaked all over the bathroom floor. On the upside, breakfast was only €3 which for a hotel in central Milan is crazily cheap.

    2
    « no AC »

    I do not get how a hotel in a major city in Italy could not have AC. I could be norm for Italy but it is not for me. The rooms facing the street leave you with a choice: suffer from overheating or open up a window and give up sleep. Staff was accommodating though.

    « Not quite the Best Western Hotel »

    This hotel is in a good location and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The room was also good, except for the lack of air conditioning. When we checked in mid afternoon the room was really stifling so I opened the windows to let some air in. The traffic noise was really intrusive. So, I tried to get the air conditioning going but that wasn't working. When I called reception I was told 'you can't have heating and cooling, open the windows and it will be OK when you come back to your room later '. We tried sleeping with the windows open and the traffic kept us awake, so we tried closing the windows and the room became really hot and stuffy. Now I know that you can expect some traffic noise when the hotel is located on such a busy road, but surely air conditioning isn't too much to ask? Luckily were only staying for two nights, we had a great nights sleep the next night at Fiumelatte. Don't stay at this hotel if you want a good nights sleep.

    « 4/5 »

    Walking distance to the train station. Not too far from the main attractions of the city. First night wasn't brilliant, the subway is so loud at night we struggled to sleep, we asked to move the morning after and they had no problems moving us, we felt they actually upgraded us also but this was possibly just coincidence. Bed good. AC Good. Food Good.

    « Great place »

    This place was clean and pleasant. The room was bright and very quiet at night even through our room faced the main road. The bed was large and comfy. The towels were great. Maybe the only thing is the size of the shower. It is a bit small, it was fine for me but if you are a large person it might not work for you. The breakfast was very good with a large selection to choose from. The manager made his presence know to us and he was very pleasant and accommodating. All in all I would recommend this place to my friends. You access the main door off the main street down a small walk way. There is a lighted sign on the main street with a arrow pointing you in the right direction. I say this as the cab driver did not see it but we did.

    « Good Location and nice hotel »

    We had a good experience at this hotel. Very clean and nice rooms. Typical European small room which is always a problem with big suitcases, but a functional closet and nice rain head shower. Would stay here again. The Lima metro entrance is right outside the door. There are good restaurants in the area. About a 10 minute walk to the station.

    « Ok for a Short Stay »

    This hotel is conveniently situated on a very busy shopping street in the heart of Milan, but the outside noise doesn't really bother you as the hotel has soundproofed its rooms, at least we were not disturbed by it on the 5th floor. It is within 30 to 40 minutes level walk to the centre of Milan. We arrived here late morning and were not allowed to check in until 2pm, though it appeared other people arriving were checking in - can it be just our room that wasn't ready? Our room was comfortable and clean but the bathroom was very small with a toilet that was very temperamental and a tiny shower cubicle with flimsy doors that kept falling apart. The shower fittings were also badly situated - each time you tried to move in the shower, the handle was knocked stopping the water completely. Breakfast was ok - large selection to choose from but I personally don't like eggs bathing in water or chopped up bits of frankfurter. The staff were not overly friendly either, only speaking to you if they had to, with the exception of Alberto on reception who showed more courtesy. Beware if you have mobility problems too - to reach the lift, you have to climb a flight of stairs and the lift itself is also a tiny space suitable for a maximum of 3 people.

    « Nice Hotel »

    Stayed at the City Hotel for a couple of nights after a stay in Lake Como and would definitely recommend. Hotel is situated on one of the main shopping streets in Milan and about 20 -25 minute walk from Duomo Square and all the main designer shops. The room we had was huge with two sets of double doors opening onto a huge balcony overlooking the main road which can be very busy and noisy but the glazing did cut a lot of this out when the doors were closed,The breakfast room was very with a good choice of food to set you up for the day and everywhere was very clean,Overall a very enjoyable stay.

    « Little Gem in busy city »

    Perfect location for sightseeing Alittle tricky for our taxi driver & us to spot though as entrance is inside a shopping arcade Lovely touch of a free welcome drink in the evening in the lobby area & nibbles Breakfast good for continental Sofa's alittle shabby in lobby for a 4* hotel Lift can only take 3 people alittle squashed when you have your luggage. Bathrooms could have been designed alittle better as our toilet was behind the door, rooms clean & good room service menu.

    « Good location! »

    Hotel is okay, you can say it's cosy, rooms are quite small unless you get a suite. Overall very clean and breakfast is very good. Best thing about his hotel is the location, in the mid of the busy Corso Buenos Aires, a shopping hub, also it is about 20 min walking to Milano Central Station. There is also a metro stop very near to the hotel.

    « Best stay at Best Western »

    A perfect location near shopping centres, train and bus stations. A beautiful hotel with clean freshly appointed rooms- we even had a balcony with views. A welcome drink with tasty gourmet foods tantalise your taste buds on arrival. Kevin is the attentive Bar man. All of the staff under Omar's management are like a family. The staff are helpful and patient- thank you all. We were happy with the delicious breakfast choices as well. I highly recommend this hotel.

    « Very good value. Would happily return. »

    Pros: - excellent location. Easy walking distance from Milan central (both trains and busses from the airport stop there) - Lima metro station a minute away - good location. Lots more of shops and places to eat nearby - breakfast is incredible value at only 3EUR per person per night - spacious clean comfortable and quiet rooms - complimentary welcome drinks and snacks - great service from the staff Cons: Nothing to note here. Would be very happy to return.

    « Great hotel - bit not so keen on Milan »

    It takes a hour on the train from the airport to milan central. We walked to the hotel from the central train station and it took about 15 minutes. On arrival were were offered a free welcome drink and given keys to our room on the 4th floor overlooking the road. We did not find the road noisy except for a couple of loud motorcycles. The air con had been on and it was nice and cool. The bed was large and super comfy and room size was as expected with a bathroom with well stocked toiletries. Breakfast was amazing for just £3 each! Lots of choice with a small hot offering. You could not find better in the whole of Milan! You also have free coffee/hot chocolate available in the small bar all day long with free croissants. Reception staff really helpful. The lift is small but we only used it to get our cases up and down to the room. The metro stopped almost outside - the red line - and Lima stop. You can get a full day pass for£4.50 if you wish. We walked everywhere, the cathedral Dumo took us 25 mins and the castle another 10 on top. We walked 13 miles on both the full days we were there. We found that food was a lot cheaper outside of the main tourist areas. One restaurant offered a 1 litre of coke for 18 euros!! As for Milan, well it's not a patch on other cities and not much to see apart from shops and graffiti. The hotel was great and would be happy to recommend but as for Milan, we won't be back in a hurry. Go to Prague, Berlin or Amsterdam, sorry Milan!

    « Good location for the money and short stay »

    Selected this hotel based on central location and price. Arrived in Milan in the morning - no problem to have your luggage stored before you can check-in. Hotel itself has no parking you will be directed to a nearby parking garage. about 5 min walking distance. Concierge/Check-in Staff is friendly and helpful. First problem you have to conquer after check in - the elevator - to small for 3 people and luggage, so someone has to walk to the 5 floor. Note the elevator will become a "bigger problem" in the morning when everybody goes to breakfast and wants to check out - prepare for some waiting. ROOM - well the first room we got [family room 3 beds] had an A/C problem - water dripping from the sealing - since the elevator was now occupied by cleaning staff - walk down 5 floors, complain - no problemo, hotel staff arranged right away for new rooms. Now we have 2 rooms for the same price - single and double same floor. Checking the air condition -> no sign of operation -> all right, walking all the floors down - complain - explanation power problem will be fixed later. OK - lets first conquer Milan. Coming back in the evening - A/C still not running, new staff downstairs, no idea what i'm talking about - so sorry. Well so much about the A/C for a hot summer night in the city. Breakfast is a bargain for the money paid Overall and with a smile - the hotel is OK for 1 night with no A/C If you stay longer you want to get this fixed

    « Alright if your staying for 1 night »

    Staff were not that friendly although helpful, very dirty housing at the back and connected to the back of our room creating much noise. metro trains going nearby. We had very noisy neighbours, at 1-5 o clock in the morning!! People can smoke I believe except for our "non smoking floor" I think although going to make sure if that is correct. Crumbling plaster in one of the rooms. Insecure doors we found, even with sharing a balcony, bathroom size was ridiculous in my opinion, way to small. I think it is not suitable for families with young children but ok if you need a stop in milan.

    « Really Great Central Location! »

    Located on the main shopping street, Corso Buenos Aires, and less than a minute's walk to the Lima stop on the metro red line, the location is really great and you can make your way around the city from this central location. Surrounded by shops, restaurants and bars it was great for going out in the evenings. The breakfast was standard mainland European but was nice and they did have a few hot options to choose from too. The bar/lobby area was small enough but really nice and the service provided by hotel staff was quite exceptional. The elevator is very small (Fits maybe 3 people, or 2 with small suitcases), so most of the time we would take the stairs... Simply because it was quicker than waiting.Also with a street facing room, the traffic noise can be pretty loud when a door or window is open, when closed this wasn't an issue as the soundproofing was really good, we generally used the A/C and had no problems. I really enjoyed our stay here and I would definitely return!

    « Short break in Milan »

    Brilliant hotel & staff. Absolutely spotless. In a fantastic location for train station, shops and discovering the city. Great value for money. Free wifi & a free welcome drink. We forgot about the City Tax which is €5 pppn in this hotel, so an extra €30 for our break but it still only worked out approx £75 a night B&B which is great. Would stay again without question.

    « Nicely located for Short Stay »

    Room was quite small but good enough for 2 people to share. Space is not generous in terms of storage and relaxation. Centrally located within shops and close to everything. Plenty of eateries to choose from nearby. Breakfast room was good size. Good service. I would have liked to see an extra water dispenser (i.e. hot water for tea/coffee). There was only one hot drink station and only 2 people could use it at a time. When it got busy there was less supply of hot water. Hot flask readily available for tea on busy times could do the trick. One downside to my stay was I encountered a problem bringing more than 2 people in my room. I had guests reconnecting from childhood days and happened to be living in Milan. I appreciated it may be to do with hotel policy but it was quite of a disappointment as I would have preferred to move less. I was recovering from tiredness and did not want to rush to go out. Simply because my guest and her daughter were not allowed in. We were given a complimentary voucher for a welcome drink to consume whenever we were ready, Which was nice. Over all my stay was comfortable.

    « What a bargain! »

    I booked three nights in the Best Western City hotel for my partner's birthday last weekend. Having stayed in various Best Western hotels before I was assured of a certain level of comfort and I'm happy to report no problems with this hotel. We arrived around 5pm after a short walk from Milan Central Station, check in was smooth and we were invited for a complimentary drink that evening. On entering the room, it was spacious and clean if a little too hot, but it was very warm that weekend. We turned up the aircon and though it didn't make much difference eventually the room cooled down. Before heading out we took the hotel up on the offer of a free drink and we're given a glass of prosecco and some canapes, there's not a bar as such in the hotel, just a trolley in the reception/lounge area, but I appreciated the effort and it was a nice touch. Over the 3 night stay we noticed the reception was manned at all times which was assuring and entry was controlled later on in the evening. In the rooms, you get a flat screen TV complete with a variety of channels in a number of languages but there's so much to see in the city you shouldn't stay in and watch TV, there's also a small mini bar, we only drunk the water which was reasonable at €2 but with all mini bars watch out for racking up a bill. Having done a lot of research to find a good hotel for a good price I couldn't recommend this place highly enough, it is in an ideal location with lots of bars, restaurants and shops right outside as well as a metro link. Top marks!

    « Nice Hotel; Disappointing Service »

    I rarely find myself having to take to Trip Advisor however after attempting twice to make contact with this hotel after my visit; I am. Nothing wrong with the hotel or general service. Bathroom problems were fixed after a bit of perseverance. Great central location. One of the best breakfasts for the money to be found. However; I urge future guests to check very carefully any taxi arrangements made by or through the hotel; specifically for cost. I'm an experienced traveller but I was still stung when I booked a taxi thro reception and ended up paying almost 4 times the going rate. I've emailed the hotel directly to enquire why I wasn't informed of the excessive charges but no one has replied. If the manager would care to get in touch or reply to both of my emails then I'd welcome that. In the meantime; just check fares and bookings made thro the hotel very carefully.

    « Nice hotel »

    More like a 3 star hotel in my opinion but on a great busy street with awesome shopping & food all around - about a 15-20 minute walk to the Galleria Duomo & Milan Cathedral so location is perfect - if you in Milan to shop, might be worthwhile to visit the outlet mall called Serravelle however it is 1.5 hours away. Foxtown is another outlet mall over the border in Switzerland but an hour away from Milan. The room was modern & clean - rooms are spacious however bathrooms are average & tiny, water does not drain quick enough as well while bathing. Shower is in the bath tub. Breakfast is average but not bad for 3 Euro per person. If you have a car, hotel is parking is shared with Best Western Galles which is literally a few 100 metres away underground.

    « Our Top Choice Hotel in Corso Buenos Aires,Milan Italy »

    Best Western Hotel City is centrally located along Corso Buenos Aires in Milan. Corso Buenos Aires is a major street for shopping and restaurants. The closest metro station,Lima, is just 3-5 minutes walk from the hotel and from Lima station, you can reach Milano Centrale in 5-7 minutes. Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele are 7-10 minute Uber ride from hotel. Hop on/off bus for City Sightseeing is around 3-4 blocks away. Staff are very welcoming and they automatically helped us with our heavy luggage, since there was a stairs going to the elevator. They offered a welcome drink with aperitivo from 6-9pm while 24/7 Coffee and pastries are available at the lobby. Our room was big with a balcony. It was nice and clean. Free wifi in the room. Breakfast was good. Price of this hotel was reasonable. Over all stay was excellent.

    « Excellent place to stay »

    Very well located, shopping restaurants and metro station in front of hotel, what to ask more in Milan. The staff is excellent, the morning breakfast is fantastic. This is Milan so the rooms are smaller then America standards. For Europe the rooms are considered big. If you want big rooms stay outside of Milan, where there is no subway and no restaurants and no commercial road. The hotel is right on Corso Buenos so consider some traffic noice during the day but at night quite less noice.

    Really like this hotel. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Bathrooms are also very big and the bath is a bonus. The room was spotless and very well maintained. Breakfast is very good with plenty of options. Staff at reception and in the breakfast area were very friendly and helpful. I stayed here on a previous trip and was happy to book it again for this trip as I liked it so much. I hope to return on my next visit to Milan. The hotel is very convenient for the Metro and is about a 20 minute walk from Stazione Centrale.

    Hotel was really good, staff were 5*, room was above expectations and spacious. Breakfast was better than expected. 24 hour free coffee. Good value for money. So overall good! BUT my wife is wheelchair dependant and this hotel falls short! steps from lobby to lift were not mentioned before booking. It's such a shame that such a lovely hotel falls short on such a basic principle. Access to all is so important and so often overlooked.

    Nice, clean hotel at a good location. Only 50 meters from the metro station Lima, from where you can be by the metro at Duomo, city center, in about 7 minutes. At the doorstep of the hotel is the biggest commercial road, Corso Buenos Aires, the OXford Street of Milan, where you can do your shopping. Staff was kind, breakfast also good with great variety. Highly recommend this hotel, I would stay again.

    Best Western City Hotel offers quiet, clean and comfortable accommodation in a city where money seems to be no object, especially when it comes to fashion. the staff are friendly and willing to help. the breakfast buffet is typically European and provides a great start for the day.

    « Ok city stay »

    Our experience here was ok. Not bad, not great. Good comfy bed and spacious room. A jug was provided with ample free tea and coffee (not always a given in parts of Europe!). Breakfast was plentiful. The continental parts were great with lots of fresh fruit but the cooked elements (bacon and scrambled eggs) always looked dry and unappetising. Shower was old and the sliding door a little broken. Reception staff were obliging and friendly enough but it kind of felt like they were just 'going through the motions' and we were just another set of guests to check in. Having said that though, the breakfast buffet staff were very friendly! Overall it was ok. Very pricy but that was probably due to the location. It felt old and tired.

    « Great location, helpful staff! »

    We only stayed one night, yet saw so many things in Milan because front desk staff Eliana was wonderful in making recommendations for us. The room had everything we needed, was clean, quiet, close to Metro, and looked out on a busy shopping street which kept us entertained when we weren't out sightseeing. The hotel kindly kept our luggage until we had to leave for the train. Very nice stay, would definitely return next time.

    « A great hotel! »

    Recently stayed here with my husband for 2 nights. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the train station which was handy. Hotel was really nice! Breakfast room was lovely and well stocked. Room was very clean along with the bathroom. Free wifi and safe usage was a bonus. Quite a reasonably priced mini bar in room too. We were surprised that our room had a terrace which was lovely to relax on! Staff were friendly and very helpful, giving advice on trips out etc. The only downside was the small lift which took ages to call as it served whole hotel which had 7 floors! Sometimes it was quicker to walk to the 7th floor! Would definitely recommend this hotel and stay again.

    We recently stayed here with my wife and 20yr old son, July 2-5, 2016 and loved it. Great location, 20meters to the metro. It was very clean and the room was very large. Breakfast was awesome as well, hardly what I would call continental as each morning there was a great selection of meat, cheeses, brioche, fruits, cereals, yogurts, pancakes, eggs and bacon! The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and recommendations. The bathroom was very large and clean and the maids were very efficient. They take the towel conservation as well. As we normally hang the towels on the hooks provided, if you don't throw them on the floor (as per the sign) the maids will not change them. However, as soon as we called for new towels we received them without delay. Great place, great price. If we get back to Milan we will definitely stay there again!

    « Fantastic little hotel »

    Travelling on my own, I was a little worried, but it turned out it was an excellent find. It's only a 15min walk from Milano Centrale, and a 20min walk to the Duomo. My room was at the back of the hotel so it was blissfully quiet, and even though it was a single room, it wasn't as 'cosy' as I was expecting. Clean and modern throughout. The staff were lovely and friendly, and ever so helpful, and adding breakfast turned out to be a bargain. My only complaint, and it's not even a complaint as it didn't apply to me but it may be problematic for others, is the lift is a little small! Other than that, I'd definitely stay there again, and recommend to others.

    « Clean,comfortable stay »

    I stayed here with my husband yesterday. En route to Lake Garda. The hotel is very central and on a busy street which didn't effect my sleep. The staff were welcoming and pleasant. Our room was very large with all amenities we could have needed. The bathroom had a shower and bath. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. The toilet seat was loose however but didn't have time to mention it as it was a quick visit. Breakfast was continental. Lots of choice. Probably could do with a bit more attention to detail as things went being filled up when empty but staff helpfully did so when asked. We would stay again.

    I visited Milan during Champions League. City was crowded. Booked late on ? Website. Did nt look around enough so got absolutely fleeced. Thought with Best Western you get a reliable chain but it's an Independant / franchised so can charge what they want. Will be very carefull again. Charged 6x normal rate. Disgrace but I the mug. Staff friendly and helpful, very centrally situated, but Website has it in a different part of city so diff to find. ( as at best it is a 3 star , so does nt stand out - but clean). Would not go there again. Thank you

    Stayed here for 10 nights. Comfortable room with ample space over street. A little noisy with windows open. Nice breakfast included in price of room. Subway station very close to hotel entrance. Bank, shopping and restaurants surround the hotel. Good overall value. Very clean.

    This hotel suited our needs. It is standard international chain hotel, the kind you like or don't according to your personal taste. Room was good size, quiet, facing away from street, spotless as was the bathroom. The breakfast was top class, good fresh fruit and cheese, hot croissants excellent coffee - with a terrific, vigilant, 2-woman team making sure that everything was replenished before it ran out completely, tables cleared efficiently. All calmly and quietly. The lift is tiny, and you have to climb a few steps to access it so that would be a difficulty for a person with walking disability. Otherwise,

    It is not the kind of hotel we like to book because we would prefer little accommodations with a  character. But this is just a personal preference. The City hotel is nice, clean, nice room and you can feel that there is a management strongly customer oriented.

    « Adequate, bad water pressure »

    Accomodations were adequate, however hot water took 12 minutes (timed on iPhone) to come through and water pressure was poor. What it lacked in luxury was made up for by the staff who were very welcoming, pleasant and helpful.

    « A Convenient Budget Stay »

    We stayed here from 3rd to 9th March as part of our 3-wk European holiday/honeymoon. We had chosen to stay here because of its' close proximity to the metro and that it is along one of the bustling streets that has shopping and eateries. It is also a good 20-25 minutes of walk to the Duomo Milan cathedral.The location came up to be one of the best for us. The breakfast selection was average but it wasn't bad. Nothing over the top. They had eggs and a selection of croissants. There were meat too for those non-vegetarian & non-Muslims to enjoy. We don't expect much anyway considering this hotel as one of the budget stays. The room had a very tiny kettle for about 500ml of water which we felt should be upgraded to a 1000ml of kettle. It is rather inconvenient making hot drinks when we have to boil it again & again. The tea & coffee sachets provided for us were certainly useful though. The bed was big enough for the 2 of us, and we slept really well throughout our stay. This is great despite having our rooms facing the street. Our other gripe was that it gets too hot in the room (considering that we are Singaporeans & we come from a country which is generally 30-degC thoughout the year!) and we had to open the balcony doors a few times at night to cool ourselves down. But it's not something that will stop us from selecting to stay in this hotel again if we come to Milan next time. Access to wifi should be improved. We had to constantly request for a "ticket" to get a new username/password every 24 or 48 hours during our stay. They don't have the normal free wifi where you access via given username/password once. Best Western may need to look into this. It's quite inconvenient having to keep asking for new "tickets" when we are in the middle of planning our trips on our mobile or laptops. Other than the few gripes, it was a lovely and comfortable stay at a convenient location!

    « Good Hotel for the price »

    The hotel is clean and has a friendly staff. The location is great, only 1 block from the metro, and plenty of restaurants and shopping located nearby. The 1 euro breakfast is nice, just stay away from the eggs.

    « Good but not great »

    This hotel has nice rooms and good location. Breakfast is nice but gets boring after couple of days. There's one lovely male staff that works the breakfast room and is very friendly. Housekeeping staff are friendly but reception staff not as much. There is one lovely friendly lady called eleina on reception that works normally in the day, she is very helpful. The men staff not as friendly. There's not much to do at the hotel but there's plenty of shopping around. It's also very very close to Lima metro stop which is very convenient. There's also a small supermarket and tabacci shop close by. Good location of hotel for short shopping trip!

    « Great Choice On Corso Buenos Aires. »

    Well positioned hotel near to Lima metro stop on Corso Buenos Aires. Room/Bathroom was very clean. Special mention must be made to Massimo on reception who was welcoming and helpful, dealing with minor issues promptly and with a smile. Great breakfast selection. Would happily stay here again

    « Very comfortable stay, great breakfast »

    Great hotel, for a great rate on New Year's Eve! Just a quick walk to the Metro will get you to the Duomo in four stops. The street is very busy and noisy, but we had a room that faced away from the street and even had a small balcony. It was very quiet. The Metro goes underneath the hotel so I recommend a higher floor. We were on the third floor and could still hear/feel it some. It didn't bother us, kind of like occasional rolling thunder. The bed was so comfortable. We had trouble with the temperature of the water in the shower not being hot enough and the tub not draining well. The room had a kettle which was nice to have for morning tea or coffee. The WiFi worked really well. Great breakfast selections, scrambled eggs, all kinds of Italian cakes, croissants. We used the hotel parking which is a very secure underground garage a few blocks away. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.

    « After changing the room it was nice »

    The hotel is quite nice, we didn't have breakfast there since they're so many cafés around the corner that is worth trying different things and not just regular buffet. Be sure to get a room with a balcony or not in the main street, it's so loud you will not get any sleep. The small rooms also suck, crappy showers with not regular european standard. The medium size room bathroom was nice, with a renewed bathroom with bathtub. For some reason they take ages to clean the room, what it may good or bad, you decide. Free coffee and candy at the reception, WiFI was most of the time ok, not sooo slow. BAD POINTS: The charged us at the an unexpected city tax that you could never seen while doing the online reservation, so at the end we have to pay +5 EUR pro person pro night more (30€ for 3 nights). Italians are cheaters!!! So be aware of this. The location was GREAT for shopping.

    I had a triple room and room was very nice and clean. Nice balcony overlooking the busy street.Very good breakfast. Reception staff was very helpful. Great location with loads of shops and very near metro. Just a few steps away and 4 stops to the Doumo. Very good restaurants near by which were very busy with locals. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

    The hotel is located on one of the busy streets in Milan. It is in walking distance from the Central Train Station (20 minutes to be more precise). City centre and the Dome can also be reached by foot but it does take a while. I recommend taking the subway which is just 100 metres away. The area is good for shopping and there are also a few nice terraces and bars around. Breakfast was good with a good choice of foods. Room was very good and although it had a view to the main street, it was quiet.

    « Excellent value »

    For its location on one of the main thoroughfares of the city, you cannot beat the Best Western Hotel City for value. Good WiFi and bathrooms, stayed here really comfortably with a friend. Particularly appreciated the walking proximity to the Metro, good eating and drinking options, and several supermarkets so we could buy our own stuff. A great hotel for the traveller who wants options.

    « The place to be »

    This Best Western is located in Milano City at the best place to be, close to the metro, the sightseeing bus and a walk away from all restaurants, stores, museum you need. A real nice place to be with a good breakfast and services as it should.

    « OK but a bit disappointing... »

    At the reception and during breakfast service, all staff from the hotel was pretty helpful, very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is fine, personally is more than enough for me, they even had soy milk for those who can't have dairy products. In what regards to the room, that's another story... Disappointing... I wasn't expecting such a small hotel room like the one I was... I barely had room for my laptop on the "desk" to work at night... I'm also attaching the pictures from the view I had from my balcony. It's good to highlight that the room was cleaned and equipped with the usual stuff. Overall its OK...

    « Shopping in Milano »

    It is an ideal place for those who go to Milano for shopping. Corso Buenos Aires is one of the main streets where the middle class shops are situated. The hotel is not big, but very accurate, with clean rooms and very tasty Italian breakfasts. There are many cafes and restaurants near the hotel. It takes 15 minute to walk to the Gallery and Duomo di Milano.

    « Great experiance at the "hotel city" »

    Very nice and pleasant hotel. Great breakfast, very clean rooms, very helpful and professional staff. Highly recommended hotel in the perfect location in Milan. The metro station is within 30 seconds walking distance, many stores for shopping.

    « Pretty Average »

    The hotel rooms are small but generally comfortable. The furnishings are ok and the bathroom is adequate.I was fortunate to have a room at the end of the building and this room had a small walkout balcony. Nothing to see except the opposite building but nice to have an open area. The breakfast was nothing special but it was ok and there was a good assortment and enough to ear. But...the lift is so small that it only holdings 3 people or one person & the luggage. At peak times there can be a long long wait and then there are the 7 steps to climb up from reception to get to the lift. The lift is a real pain and the main reason for my average score. Next is the plumbing, you can hear the flushing or the shower from the adjoining rooms. So if you want to sleep in no chance as this hotel is popular with the business crowd and they are up early. A plus is it is less than a block to the subway stop and about a 15 minute walk to the main railway station and it is located on a very popular shopping street (mid-market). The.bed is reasonably comfortable & the linen & towels are nice. But the hotel is not what I would rate as 4 star & the building is certainly nothing to look at..

    « poor choice »

    Downgraded area, rude receptionist, noisy room, poor breakfast, and poor value, not worth mentioning the staircase in front of the elevator?!!.... You can find a much better place in Milan for this price.

    « A good stop in Milan »

    It might be within walking distance from the main train station, but if you have luggage, better to take a taxi. Metro stop LIMA a short walk from hotel. Very friendly and helpful front desk. Greeting people with genuine warmth. The lady and gentleman who were on duty on Sept 26 in the afternoon are an asset to the hotel. A good start to visiting the city of Milan. Good, informative maps provided at the front desk. Luggage had to be carried up,to the next level in order to use the lift to get to the rooms on the 2nd floor. Rooms were adequate for a single or double, bedding clean and fresh. We had the best complimentary breakfast the next morning. Superb selection of hot and cold cereals, fruits, pastries.

    « Lack of Security »

    While staying at this hotel I was robbed. Prior to going out for the evening I locked my laptop, camera and lenses in the room safe and set the combination. On my return I found that I was unable to open the safe as the combination had been changed. Eventually it was opened by a member of the hotel staff. I then found the above items missing. I was not the only guest robbed in this way. If you have any valuables and wish to retain them, I cannot recommend this hotel.

    « Good location; very comfortable. »

    One of the better hotel rooms we stayed in whilst in France/Italy. Good value for money. Very good breakfast to get the days started. Good location with easy access to Metro and city sightseeing bus. Can walk to Stazione Centrale (10 mins) or Duomo (30 mins).

    « Robbery! »

    What do you say about the place where your belongings were stolen from the security box behind the locked door of your room? There were more people who had been rubbed at the same time. We had to spend a night with carabinieris investigating sloppy security in the hotel.

    « Excellent Value in Milan »

    We stayed here at the end of Aug 2015, and had looked at many options before making this reservation. We were very pleased with the value of this hotel. The room wasn't large - but it was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were gone most of the day looking at the sites anyway. The bed was comfortable; everything was clean; staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had a back side room which was very quiet - although I suspect that a front, street side room might be noisy. The location was about a 10 minute walk to the train station and a 30 min walk to the Duomo area. We like to walk, but it would have been easy from this hotel to take public transportation to any of the main sites. All in all - we considered this a great option in Milan.

    Hotel has a good location and is easy to walk into central milan browsing shops and park. Simple but clean hotel. Breakfast is good and staff are all helpful. No bar as such but is a sitting area in lobby. If using a taxi there is another best western close by
