Milan Hotel Review - Hotel Vecchia Milano

If you’ve been reading along with me, you know my distaste for Milan.  The hotel there that we stayed in wasn’t that bad though.  It also wasn’t that good.

We got this recommendation out of the Rick Steves Italy book.  I am a research-a-holic, mainly because I just like reading about travel.  Anyway, the review was good for a decent price.  This is my only complaint:

Those are twin beds.  And I was on my honeymoon.  That was not the hotel’s fault, however, that’s a combination of me (wanting to use the Rick Steves book) and my husband (wanting to not book things in advance).  When we rolled into Hotel Vecchia Milano at about 4pm, this was the last room available.  We should be lucky we got a room at all.  Plus, I would have taken a room anywhere just to stop trucking my suitcase all over Milan.  I was able to push the beds together.
There are three beds total, which would actually
work out really well for single travelers.
However, the room came in handy when the ENTIRE city shut down at 9pm.  We came back to the room and drank and watched the Euro Cup.

The bathroom, in true Italian fashion, was as small as a thimble.

When I spoke of an extremely small shower in Lucca, this one took the cake.

But, on the bright side, the price for this hotel wasn't too bad.  I can't remember exactly, but it was less than 100.

Just checked Trip Advisor, and people on there agree with me... the hotel is nothing great.  This is one time Rick Steves led me astray.

Cost: About €100, which would be $125

Best Deal: Continental breakfast with homemade cappuccino
