I stayed in Hotel Vittoria for one night. Stepping into the hotel is like stepping back in time. The décor is so over the top it is laughable. Our room was red and gold everything: bedspread and matching curtains, wallpaper and carpet. The room was also tiny, and I can imagine it would get particularly frustrating if you were there for more than one night. The quilt on the bed was also made of a slippy material and in the shape of the bed, which wasn't really great for sleeping under.
Another problem with the room was the vent in the bathroom. It is obviously shared between two rooms as I could hear a full rendition of the person using the bathroom next to me when I was in the shower. It also meant that the noise of our neighbours coming back and using the bathroom came into our room and woke us up.
We decided to use the hotel bar in the evening, after seeing it advertised in the lift as having cocktails and live music. Again, absolutely over the top gross décor, with every space covered with fake flowers and magazines. There wasn't any live music, we were the only ones in the bar and the staff member managing reception had to run down after us to serve us at the bar. They also only had 3 cold beers and so when we tried to buy a fourth we were told it was warm. The bar also had so many items from breakfast on it that it had obviously not been used as a bar in a long time.
The breakfast itself was average. As vegans there were a few options available, but we were ignored by staff (potentially because we were a young couple) whereas everyone else seemed to have been offered tea and coffee. The fruit had also almost ran out by the time we arrived at breakfast, which was 9.30am and breakfast was meant to run until 10.30am.
A few good points on the hotel are it's location - it is a 20 minute walk from Duomo and is on the route for line 73 to Linate Airport - and the reception staff. I found the reception staff to be most obliging and pleasant.
Overall, Hotel Vittoria is a good hotel if you want somewhere to crash for a night before you head to the airport, but I'm not sure a longer stay would be tolerable.
