When I booked this hotel, I got the impression that it was near the city center. Well, it is not. You are really out of the city. You can take public transport, but it takes you 20-30 minutes, and in the evening the bus does not go very often. The river Naviglio Grande is very charming, but that is in the city center. Outside this hotel it is just a dull river.
The room had a balcony, though. But without an interesting view of any kind.
Directions: South of Milan.
The hotel is near the business area of Corsico and Lorenteggio. Though a bit far away from the main transportation lines, it provides for a comfy stay and an unusual setting right in front of the Naviglio. Trezzano is just across the bridge, and a few restaurants and bars provide for refreshment.
Unique Quality: On the Naviglio, cheap-ish.
Directions: On the other side of the Naviglio from Trezzano. To get there from Tangenziale exit at Lorenteggio, turn right at Ikea and follow the Naviglio for about 3 kms.
Does anyone know how far it would be from Naviglio grand hotel to Central Milan? I am needing to go to The US consulate of Milan, and also to Biassono Town Hall. I will be needing to travel to these places from the Hotel.
Where would be the bus depot center in Milan to get information on time schedules etc...?
I would really appreciate the info. Thanx
Hotel Naviglio Grande is in the South of Milan, in a district known as Navigli. By metro, you would take the M2 Green Line to Romolo. Here's the link, with info about accessibility etc.:
The train station is Stazione Centrale at Piazza Duca d'Aosta, metro Centrale F.S. (lines M2 and M3)
The main bus station is at Porta Garibaldi, metro Garibaldi (line M2). Tel 02-637-901 for info. Ticket office open every day 6.30 to 20.30 hrs.

There's a secondary bus station at Piazza Luigi di Savoia, to the left as you exit from Stazione Centrale (in case you're in the area and want to get info there.)
My guidebook says that the Navigli is an old working-class district renowned for its restaurants, bars and intense nightlife.
I'm researching Milan myself right now so it was a pleasure to write this here. Hope it helps. Buon viaggio!
