Location.

Milan Linate Airport (LIN) is 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the hotel, around 15 minutes by car.

Business travelers can make use of the 5 meeting rooms. Complimentary wireless Internet access is available in public areas.
Guests of the Starhotels E.c.ho. can start the day with a selection of hot and cold dishes in the bright restaurant with ample windows and backlit murals of a vegetable garden, which also offers a menu with fresh, seasonal items for dinner.
