I'm going to start by stating that the staff at the hotel is really nice and I'm sure that they're trying to do their best to keep the hotel running. Also, the location of the hotel is very good and close to the attractions in Milan. With that said, I really had a bad stay at the hotel. The bed's are old, and cotlike. Even putting a plywood board would have been an improvement to the cot like spring that supported the mattress. The room that I stayed was used by smokers, and even though that the walls and the tile floors should not take smoke smell, it does permeate through the paper wall and the mattress. If you're a not smoker with asthma, like me, I would not recommend to stay in this hotel. Right now I'm still coughing and sneezing from my stay there. However, on the positive, the shower and bathroom were in working order, it had a nice terrace to the interior garden and there was a TV in the room.
