Hotel Sanpi is a good value pick to the north east of the city centre, within easy reach of Milan's top sights. The local area isn't touristy, but it is safe and well connected -- the nearest metro (Porta Venezia) is just five minutes on foot from the hotel.
A 20-minute walk and you can be perusing the designer goods in the Quadrilatero d'Oro (Golden Rectangle); 10 minutes more and you'll be at the Duomo. A visit to see Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" at the Cenacolo Vinciano (five minutes' walk from the Conciliazione metro station) is a must for history buffs and art lovers -- be sure to book in advance as the 15-minute sessions are limited. Other sights worth a visit include the glass-ceilinged shops at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, the 18th-century La Scala opera house and Castello Sforzesco in Sempione Park, to the west of the city.
Hotel Sanpi is not a full-service hotel, but it covers the basics well. Wi-Fi access is free and there's a tiny gym in the old wine cellar -- for outdoor workouts, travel three blocks to the Giardini Pubblici, known as "Milan's most pleasant park" (Rough Guides).
There's no restaurant on site, but the hotel offers a continental buffet breakfast, and guests can order omelettes made to order (charges apply). In the evenings, stop for a drink in the lovely courtyard, where a small menu of traditional cicchetti (appetisers) is also available, before venturing out for dinner -- ask the concierge for a recommendation or try one of the local Eritrean restaurants.
Rooms are simply furnished with classic furniture and parquet floors. Basic rooms can be small, but there are larger rooms for families that sleep two adults and two children and have split-level sitting rooms. Rooms on the ground floor can suffer from street noise, so request one on the higher floors or to the rear for a more peaceful night.
