Very quiet when we ate there so not a lot of atmosphere, but the food was very nice though the portions could be slightly larger.

Maria S
How close is this accommodation to the city center? I am looking to travel to Milan for 2 nights and would like to stay as close as possible as I do not speak Italian. If this is not recommended as a good location do you know the best 3 star (4 star max) hotels that are? Thanks, Maria

Hi Maria, it's quite central but probably not the best depending on how much you want to spend. I visit London a fair bit so can help depending on your budget.
