I have been coming to this hotel on and off for business over the last couple of years and I have to say it's pretty good. It's located at Piazzale Lodi which is edge of city centre but this works great for me as I often have to travel in Italy by car and I invariably have to go either East or South. There is a yellow line metro station pretty much right outside which will take you in 10 minutes to Piazza del Duomo (where you can change lines to go pretty much everywhere in Milan) or if you go further the yellow will take you to Stazione Centrale. I lived in Milan for 9 years and used to stay in this area. It's a pretty nice residential area and there are some great restaurants within walking distance, particularly in Viale Umbria such as Da Angelo's where they do the best 'Fiorentina' steak in Milan. The hotel is classically styled and so a wee bit old fashioned but nice none the less. It's also spotless and the rooms are very nice. The beds are pretty firm and I always seem to get a pretty good night's sleep as you can make it pitch black and silent. Staff are efficient if not super friendly (as in all of Milan) and the Hotel restaurant is very good if a little pricey. There's also a gym and a pool which you don't always get in Hotels in Milan. In summary it's not the best hotel in Milan but it's pretty good for the price you pay and great if you don't want get involved in rush hour traffic to travel East or South on the highways.
