OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

It's not hard to explore the city from this spot, with both Garibaldi and Repubblica train stations less than a ten-minute walk away, and you can reach the Porta Nuova business district on foot in about five minutes. The fashionable shops of Corso Como are also about five minutes away, whilst the multi-floored Eataly is just two minutes from the hotel and is a food emporium not to be missed.

By plane: fly to Milan Malpensa from London (1 hour 50 mins) and Manchester (2 hours 5 mins). The hotel is a 50-minute drive from the airport. You can also fly from London to Milan Linate (1 hour 50 mins) and drive 25 minutes from the airport. Parking available for €40 per day. Book flights to Milan.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The building opened as Milan's first railway station in 1840 when the city was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the neoclassical façade has been well preserved. Inside, the décor is contemporary and few original features remain. Fun displays of antique luggage and liquor bottles decorate the reception area, while corridors are painted a cheerful turquoise.

THE FACILITIES

A small co-working space in the reception area is a sociable place to catch up on email, while a fitness room has the latest Technogym equipment and there's a small spa. An underground car park is handy if you are combining a trip to Milan with a drive to the lakes.
