Stayed 4 days during Fiera in this hotel, relocated from Sant Ambroeus, which was not pleasant and old. Hotel des Etrangers is Business oriented, good large rooms in the new wing. Reason of my review is front desk manager Tiziana Faciocchi. Any hotel in the world will be pleased having her in their team, highly professional, trying to help and accommodate any need during your stay. During volcano eruption in Iceland and Air traffic lockdown in Europe, Tiziana went beound her obligations trying to help us with flight schedule, and accommodations at very busy hotel. She was kind enough to go with me to the travel agency outside of the hotel and help to rebook flights. She speaks fluent English what is not much common in Italy, she was extremely helpful with transportation arrangements and other tasks needed.
Also leaving hotel every day for airport, and after unsuccessful attempts to fly back to US, during Air traffic mess, she was kind enough to rearrange room for us, and lower the rate, seeing that we are waiting for flight to US during last four days. Taxi to Malpenza Airport and back was E220, and to Linarte both ways E70. Unfortunately hotel is located little far from underground stations, 20 minutes walking, which are very convenient in Milan, not mentioning Taxi service if needed on short commute. Located mainly in the residential area with lots of restaurants and pizzerias around, by taxi to center Duomo, or Brera district 10-15 minutes. I found Milan lately is facing traffic problems more than in the past years, so if travelling in the morning or afternoon add 10-15 minutes in addition.
At the end, I want to thank Tiziana Faciocchi again for her humanity and professionalism.
