I booked Hotel Ariosto for two nights for my wife and I. I booked the hotel for 160 Euros per night. Even though it is not a high end hotel but I thought during the Euro Kuchina week, it should work okay for its location. What a huge mistake! The hotel is nothing like the pictures. Its a small dump...

Dear JunkTrips, Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at the hotel. Firstly please accept my apologies for the inconveniences you have highlighted in your comments. The problem with the payment was due to an error of the booking system you used and was not your fault nor of the hotel. Regarding other problems you found, we assure...

We stayed here for 1 night while in Milan. The hotel rooms and facilities were nice; the staff was exceptional too. The big downside (keyword is BIG) there is a trolly line that comes by the building every 15 minutes all day and night which is extremely loud and rattled the building. Also, the smell of cigarette smoke infiltrated the...

This hotel has seen its best days. But still I think the 3 star rating is ok for it. Location is not very central, but it is conviently located on a few hundred meters from the M1 metro station "conciliazione" which is only a few stops away from the city centre. There is not a lot of restaurants or shops...

The hotel is on a busy street that has old trolleys. They make a lot of noise at all hours of the day and night. If you are a light sleeper you will have a bad time. The staff was not helpful. When I was checking in I was having trouble getting my suitcase up the stairs, the bell boy...

Never having been to Milan, I was lucky enough to find this hotel online. In a city as diverse as Milan, it was heaven to return here every night. The hotel is all you could ask for, beautiful architecture, quaint rooms, friendly staff. I especially liked that you hand in your key when you leave, and pick it up on...

A challenge to find affordable, central place to stay during Expo 2015. Ariosto located in semi-residential neighbourhood, a 3 minute walk to Metro with a convenient tram right outside hotel. Ask for a courtyard view as street facing rooms have tram noise. Friendly staff, Fatma at breakfast had our cappucinos ready just after we sat down. Amazing buffet style breakfast...

This hotel is situated within about 3kms from the centre of Milan and walking to the Duomo cathedral is a great walking outing with a few sites along the way. Breakfast is great and you can sit in the courtyard. The staff were helpful and courteous.

Very nice hotel at a great location. The breakfast was wonderful and better than most places. The beds were hard but you could request a diffe t pillow, which I did t know until my last day. That would have made a difference. Bathroom was good sized but tiny Italian corner shower. Would stay here again.
