As some other reviewers have mentioned, this place seems half finished. Bare bulbs, switches that don't work, unfinished door frames, it all seems hastily slapped together. Worse than the unfinished nature of the place, however, was the mildew we encountered in the showers. We booked a private triple room for two nights and for some reason were moved to a different room for the second night, not a big deal in itself, but the bathroom reeked of mildew and rotten eggs and stank up the whole room.
When we came to B&B Villa Melchiorre we were very dissapointed, becouse parking wasn't for free (on your internet site you are miss leeding about the free parking). Under the trees was forbiden to park! Young man on the reception counter spoke English very bad, so it was very hard to communicate with him. Becouse we were first time in Milano we expected more information for sight seeing (maps), metros, food ets.
It was a loud and noisy hostel, but guess thats how it is in the citty on bigger streets. The aircon was just too smal to cool down the room. For that money it was okay too stay there for some nights.
The hostel is located next to a noisy street and at Night we couldn't sleep because of all the cars we heard through the Window. Is seems like they are renovating their rooms because our bathroom was half new half undone.
At early morning the staff was sleeping so I had to wait maybe 10min to open me. They did it when I started to call the doorbell constantly and calling the phone....
Establishement is not bad, but has room for improvement. Staff was nice but appeared unorganized, as the whole place. There is a common room, with its water boiling device, otherwise rather empty. The whole place looks like in sleep, unfinished, missing things. Room in 1st floor facing main street was ok, but superbly noisy. Wooden glass windows are not preventing noise to come in. And beds, they are foldable, small and very bad. Though, it was very clean. Okey for a one night stay.

Basic, but that's what you pay for. Staff was friendly, city centre is close. There IS hot water, but you have to wait 10 minutes for it...not 5.

a lot of dust in the room... it was very noisy and impossible to sleep in the room due to the noise outside.
