I chose this hotel partially for the location. Once you locate Vitruvio, and get your bearings, it's a very convenient spot. The Milan street plan is very complicated, but once you figure out how to get to the big sites (Duomo, Galleria, La Scala) you can do well by walking. It is near the train station, but on a quiet street, and if you have a room in the back of the hotel (top floor had a small balcony) it's very peaceful.
The staff was helpful, and the buffet breakfast spread was one of the best I saw in 3 weeks in Italy. And the sunroom/dining room has you virtually in the garden. You need to be down there to use the free wifi, but again, it's a nice spot to spend some time. Someone mentioned how "gay" the hotel was. At least a couple of the desk clerks gave information out to guests, when they were asked. But most of the clientele was straight couples, or other European travellers. Very few Americans have sought this place out, and it's a good deal, when the dollar isn't going too far.
The room, and especially the bathroom were nicely updated, and I think the Air Conditioning was working when I was there, but wasn't needed much, and it was nice with the window open.
