Michaelangelo Hotel in Milan Italy : Location is superb.

Milan is not cheap ........ But that being said this hotel is value for money. 

The location is superb and overall it's not too shabby of a hotel. So if are not looking for an opulent and luxurious hotel but just a comfortable place to sleep then look no further.

Near Centrale milan train
Got jacuzzi bathtub
Hop on hop off bus just 50m away

No iron and ironing board - only has a pant press.

Hesperia Hotel : An okay B&B but location is great.

This is a B&B and location wise its great as its near the train station. You just need to be able to find it - and as is all places in Venice, finding it can be a challenge if you don't have a map on your smartphone. (Don't use address in Venice - even Venitian find it difficult if you simply ask them about a place by giving them an address). Have a map!

The hotel gave us a corner room which is huge by european standards. Overall its liveable but don't expect 4 star and above living amenities. Everything including the toilet is just basic.

But with all B&B, the breakfast are rather personal and having breakfast in a small corner of the hotel can be rather dainty experience.

Overall it ain't bad, because for me, the price of staying there is truly a value on its own.
Room Tip: Just along the canal of the hotel lies a delicious seafood restaurant. Its near the bridge just 5min walk from the hotel. You cannot missed it.
