No airport shuttle between between 8pm and 6am

Posted Jan 14, 2017
So essentially if you picked this hotel because you arrive late at night and fly out early in the morning next day, this is a wrong choice of hotel - and be prepared to pay additional 40 euro for taxi on top of already more expensive price for being "airport" hotel. My second biggest complaint is that barmen was washing glasses without any soap!!! He just ran his fingers on the glass under the water. Few other minor points: reception hanged up on me when I called from airport, so I had to call twice to get information regarding shuttle. They were not very nice at check in and check out either (subjective, but this is the impression I got). Kitchen was closed 1/2 hour before posted time. The hotel itself is nice, interior design is contemporary and pleasing. Rooms are clean. If management could address the misleading shuttle service and anti-sanitary cleaning practices and train reception staff, this would be a nice place to stay but not as of today.

Dear guest, i would like to apologize if your stay wasn't as you expected. I want to clarify about the shuttle service. It starts every day from 6 to 10 a.m. every 20 minutes. After that time until 11 pm. is on request of the guest. Sometimes there is a bit of traffic on the way, not depending on the hotel, so the waiting-time can change. About the performance of the barman, i can ensure we offer thoroughly clean products to our guests. We are always very flexible about the closing times of bars and restaurant. If the restaurant is closed we have a special menu at the bar. thanks for having highlighted the beauty of our common spaces and our hotel rooms. We will keep in mind your suggestions to improve our services. I hope to welcome you again in our hotel and receive positive feedback for your future stay. Best Regards, Vincenzo Lisacchi General Manager

Cons: The carpet in the room was filthy. The bed was comfortable and bedding nice. It would be better if shuttle ran earlier in the morning.
For an airport hotel there should be a regular shuttle. Many people in the morning had to take an overly priced taxi.

2 day business trip

Posted Oct 23, 2016
this is a fairly new hotel but they are not able to turn the air conditioner or turn off the heater when it is unseasonably warm. so the room was very warm. the window only opened a crack and was no help. in the elevator everyone complained about the uncomfortable temperature, but the hotel did nothing about it (we asked them to, as did several others). Otherwise, it was OK. The room furniture was clean and fairly comfortable, if a few notches below Ikea. The pasta in the restaurant was good, as was the breakfast. All in all, it could have been much better. Waking up sweaty is a real downer.

Dear guest, thank you very much for your comment about your stay in our hotel. The hotel has a central heating system; in this period of the year, being the lowest temperature, it is activated and the air conditioning can not be used. The air conditioning is activated only in the warmer periods during the year. Usually you can just turn off the heater and wait a few minutes before the room to cool down. We usually recommend turning off the heating because the rooms are already hot enough. We hope to welcome you again in the near future and let you try all our services and convey our positive attitude. Best Regards, Vincenzo Lisacchi General Manager

Decent place to stay if flying out of Linate

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Pros: Proximity to the airport and the tram into the city.
Cons: The hotel staff could have been nicer.
Location: Took the tram located across the street from the hotel into downtown Milan (30 minutes).
This is a standard airport hotel, but at a good price. The hotel staff could be friendlier, but all in all they were able to help us with our room, etc.

HOTEL TO STAY WHEN DEPARTING FROM LINATE

Posted Oct 15, 2016
While the hotel is short distance from the airport it runs a shuttle every 20 minutes. When the time between shuttles is that long the driver should assure that everyone is non board. The shuttle looks like a delivery van (the side windows are obscured). It was drizzling and I was under the cover of the motor lobby. I say what looked liked like a hotel delivery vehicle pull out at 8am. I did not realize it was the shuttle that left me waiting for another 20 minutes.

rude no way is this a four star property

Posted Sep 30, 2016
Pros: location airport shuttle
Cons: staff interaction with guests clean mold out of shower
Location: find another hotel
check in desk was disorganized. staff rude and unhelpful. resented being asked for help with Internet connection. female desk staff seemed too busy trying to flirt with traveling businessmen than to accommodate other guests. then they said their computer and printer were problematic and best not try to print boarding passes. bathroom not clean and mold around base of shower. one small bar of soap for two guests. shuttle van to airport fast and efficient
