Would have liked to give 3.5⭐️ What was good: + The room was big & good. + You make a call to them when you land & they pick you up at 2 different pick-up/drop-off locations for €5 per trip. They also drive to trains that take you into Milan for the same price. The journey from the airport to the hotel took 4 minutes. + The bed was actually very comfortable. + English speaking staff. + Good food at the restaurant in the house and the breakfast was served at the hotel and was also quite okay. - There was no safe in the room. - Soap bottles/shampoo were of the refill type that you could open & reseal to have put anything in them. - Not very clean. - Had to pay double for breakfast as this was included when I ordered the room via booking.com but had to pay extra on the way home. Addition: I personally had no problem with the following but it can be good to know that it is so close to the airport so you hear all the planes at all hours of the day. The train into Milan cost €13 & took about 40 min.

Staff was kind. Not great otherwise, or kind of great depending how you look at it. For instance, our room wasn't very clean, the toilet and sink needed cleaning and there was children's face and hand prints on the window and also a crib in the room when we got there so that could be a sign it wasn't cleaned very well which was not great, but this also reminds me of the joys of youth and also that housekeepers should be paid and trained appropriately which is great. Also, our ac, while set to 18c for 5 hours only brought the temp down from 24.0 to 23.2 which wasn't great for my sleep but did remind me that my ac at home is great. It was 15c outside so really it's kind of magical that the ac for the first half of the night and an open window for the second half was not able to lower the room temp a whole degree, it's black magic for sure but magical all the same. Also we got to listen to planes land and take off while trying to sleep so that was fun. Our coffee pods were not punctured and brewed by the machine in our room but rather smashed and discarded with no resulting coffee which was not great, but that means at the airport I was able to use one last lavazza machine in Italy which then gave me the great experience of using an airport bathroom at 430am. The TV would not connect to the hotel wifi even after a pretty intensive troubleshooting session so we were not able to watch Netflix on the big screen which wasn't great, but it reminded me that my ipad is a wonderful device which is great. Also, the tv, while functionless in the capacity I was asking, did have a brilliantly bright light that, in coordination with the thermostat's eerie green display, fully illuminated the room all night to indicate you had turned the tv off and the ac was trying it's best dag-nabbit which was great in the powerful sense but not great in the I need some sleep please sense. All in all, I should've just bought a tent and slept on the street, but I'm sure if I had asked the staff to change rooms or fix our issues they would've tried something, however we were only here about 10 hours and my main concern was getting enough hours of eyes closed on the bed time to not make the next 20 hours of travel intolerable. I may not have chosen wisely, but it is a great thing to be humbled so really it's just how you look at it.
