My grandfather and I spent two nights at St John hotel in Sesto San Giovanni (hence the name of the hotel) from 18 to 20 February 2010. We had chosen this hotel because it lies close to his brother's place - he came with me just to visit his brother - and to a metro stop (Sesto Marelli on line 1 or Red line), but also because I found a discounted price on Booking.com. We paid a total of 198 euro for a double room. This fare included breakfast, which was not included in the offer of other hotels I had checked.
Although the hotel is located on a very busy street on the way from Milan to Monza, and although we were given a room on the street side, we would hear very little noise.
The bathroom included all the necessary for personal hygiene and it wasn't small, unlike what some reviews at Booking.com said.
They have a restaurant where you can have dinner from Mondays to Thursdays and, upon request, on week-ends too. However, we didn't have dinner there.
Free internet connection via Ethernet is available in all rooms (the reception will lend you a cable if you don't have one), while a wifi connection is available for free in the reception hall. I used it to connect to the Internet with my iPod touch.
Unique Quality: The pros of St John Hotel are its location not far from the metro stop, its beautiful rooms and halls and the kindness of the staff. Moreover, from our room on the sixth floor, we could see the snow-clad Alps... as well as all the cars thar ran below us!
Some cons include its lying far from the centre (but you can reach it by metro within 20-25 minutes) and the busy street it lies on. Moreover, beware that animals are not allowed in.
Anyway, I would still recommend Hotel Agape (see my tip) as first choice: closer to the metro and located in a quieter area.
Directions: Exit the Sesto Marelli station, walk along viale Marelli on the left sidewalk. At the beginning of via Buozzi, move to the right sidewalk and keep walking. There are no pedestrian crossings near the hotel.
