I was very disappointed with my stay at this hotel and would never stay here again.

I spent my last night in Italy at Hotel Ristorante Cervo as it was close to the airport and the reviews I had read were all positive. My single room was on the bottom floor of the older section of the hotel. My room reeked of smoke. The smell of smoke was so strong that it seemed as if the person just left an hour earlier after smoking three packs of cigarettes with all the windows closed.

My room had two windows. The bedroom window had bars on the outside. The bathroom window opened up right into the parking lot at a level which made it pretty easy for anyone to climb inside. I tried leaving the windows open for about an hour to see if I could air out the room but it did not help. After a couple of hours, the mosquitoes started coming in. I had to close the bathroom window for the night, as it was not safe to leave this window open. I left the bedroom window open a tiny bit with the curtain closing off the opening to try to limit the mosquitoes.

Across from my room was a little neighborhood, which ended up being quite noisy with some sort of construction work going on much of the night. Dinner at the hotel was just so-so. The menu was very limited. I did not sleep well that night and could not wait to get out of that room in the morning. For a three star hotel, I was not impressed. The bathroom amenities consisted of a sliver of soap. The buffet breakfast was again just ok.

Perhaps my bad experience at this hotel was because I was staying in the older section of the hotel, but still, I personally would never stay here again. A very disappointing last night in Italy!

Clean, friendly, great access to Malpensa airport!

This hotel is a traveller's dream come true when leaving from MXP! It is less than a five minute drive to the terminal.

The staff is friendly and helpful. After checking into the hotel, I took my rental car back to the airport the night before my flight. They got my luggage to my room and picked me up after dropping the rental car. The next morning I got to the airport without the stress of having to do that!

The hotel is clean and well appointed. The breakfast was good and the price of 93/night was reasonable. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Budget hotel, with good sized rooms.

On our July 2001 trip to Italy, we stayed at the Hotel Cervo our last night before heading home. It was a very pleasant surprise. I had read that it was a small budget (emphasis on "budget") hotel so was a little apprehensive.

But the Hotel was spotlessly clean; decent sized room and bathroom (our room in Paris a few years ago was half the size!) and it was just a few minutes from Malpensa. We had our car but they had a shuttle. There was even a light breakfast included. All for 160,000 lire ... we thought it was a great bargain.
