This is a good place to be if you do not want to go away from the station area.
It's about 300 meters from the main railway station in a quiet street.
The room rate was 85 breakfast included which, being in centre of Milan is not bad at all.
Unique Quality: The location.
Directions: Main railway station area
The rooms at this hotel are decent in size and the bathroom is quite large. The location is convenient to the train station (about a 10 minute walk) and the staff is quite friendly. There is a hair dryer in the bathroom and the hotel has an elevator. Breakfast is included. The area is a little boring overall...a few restaurants, lots of hotels and a lot of wholesale clothing stores.
Directions: With your back to the train station, you will see 2 McDonald's. Go toward the one in front of you (the other one is on your left)...and walk down Via Napo Torriani. At Via Alfredo Cappellini, turn right; the hotel will be on the left side of the street.
The hotel is a three star, but I would imagine that's down to it having the necessary facilities - it has minibar, TV, etc - rather than being a nice hotel. It certainly isn't what you could call charming, with dark rooms and drab, rather depressing, decor.
It is, however, and in a good location for transport links. It's close to the main train station, but no so close that the area is dodgy and the walk to the main sights is relatively short.
The main reason I can only give the delle Nazioni a single star, though, is the terrible service we were subjected to on checking out. We'd paid extra for a room with jacuzzi. As the bathrooms aren't nice enough to want to linger, I was a bit disappointed on arrival. Nevertheless, I wanted to make use of the facility. No hot water. We called reception and twice someone came and tried to fix it. No good. Well, that was disappointing too, but not the end of the world. Trying to charge me for the use of the jacuzzi without being able to use it was aggravating, however. An argument ensued in the lobby, with the manager only reducing the price when I made to walk out without paying at all.
I can't remember what I paid, but whatever it was was too much. And needless to say, I won't be returning.
