Rated 2 out of 5 by BerkeleyW Mandatory swim cap for pool???
The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are modern and clean. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Everything was great with the exception of my experience with the pool. I got my family suited up for the pool so we could enjoy it while we stayed at the hotel. This is a big job as it's not easy to get two young children into bathing suits...but also because the hotel is very large so it was a long walk for us to get to the pool. Upon arrival we learned of the mandatory swim cap rule. If you don't have one (which we didn't...who does these days???) then you can buy one for 6 Euro from the hotel. We didn't want to pay 40 Euro to enjoy the pool for 20 - 30 mins as we'd planned so we went back to our room and had to explain to our kids that they couldn't use the pool. Made a potential amazing hotel experience unenjoyable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AkG83 Stylish Airport Hotel
This hotel exceeded most of my expectations. It's beautifully designed and furnished. The staff was friendly and attentive. It's basically in the airport so you don't have to plan travel time to catch your flight. The room was beautiful and clean. I really liked the appointments to the room: rain showerhead, comfy bed, etc. I ate at the hotel restaurant and found it quite pleasant. Like all hotel restaurants, it's a bit overpriced but the food here was tasty and with lots of healthy and food-allergy options.
I only have two complaints. The room wifi was fairly slow, especially since it cost 12 euro per day. Also, my room faced the airport parking lot and there was lots of noise there all night. I had to wear ear plugs to get sleep. With another room, not facing the parking lot, I would have been perfectly happy.

Very convenient for late arrivals and early departures. Nice and comfortable place to stay when your flight is delayed after checking out. Comfortable rooms and nice bath.
Could improve on speed of WiFi.
Will return again to this hotel soon.

Rated 2 out of 5 by como13 Started out great...but...
When my husband and I arrived at this hotel we were so excited! We were on the last leg of a very long trip and we were thrilled to be upgraded to a junior suite. The room was amazing...until we realized that the AC did not work properly. It was very hot and stuffy...unbearable. We tried to call the front desk, but the phones didn't work either! On top of that the bathroom lock was broken and my husband got locked in! After going back and forth to the front desk 3 times and having multiple people work on our AC, (and get my husband out of the bathroom) we were then moved to another room, with 2 beds. :( Needless to say, our stay at this hotel was quite chaotic...all we wanted to do was relax and instead we spent hours dealing with this mess! The hotel could have been great, but they definitely have some room to improve.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bbhk Ultra long queue at front desk (no dedicated waiting queue for elite members) & funny bathroom design
I was upgraded to a spacious diplomatic suite, which was nice. However, the super large bathroom has a small bathtub and does not even have a stand alone shower! I wonder what kind of "Italian design" it is...... And I had a bad experisnce that it took me such a long time to queue up for small things at front desk. I suggest they dedicate a queuing line for elite members.
Other than these, the superb location and direct acess to the airport is perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by FaroFlyer Sheraton Malpensa
Hotel is very convenient for the airport and is only a short walk. Room service food was fine and reasonably priced. WiFi was weak but wired OK.
Big negative is noise. The hotel advertises rooms as "Fully soundproofed" which is mainly true against external noise, but totally untrue about internal noise from doors, trolleys, staff and guests.
This would definitely not be a suitable hotel for day use as noise starts before 07:00 and continues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carolynb The staff at this hotel are EXCEPTIONAL.
I just want to personally say that my stay at this hotel put the icing on the cake on my trip. My son and I were on vacation to celebrate him receiving his Masters Degree and this trip was wonderful. I want to thank all of the customer service representatives, they are professional, courteous, and very attentive to your needs. You now have a valued Sheraton preferred customer in me. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by dan1972 4th category hotel not 4stars
this option is great for location because you can just step in the terminal after check out.
But the Sheraton brand is jeopardized at this facility.
I got a room that was literally 300 meters from elevators
although apparently very comfortable, had several flaws that are usually unacceptable in any hotel.
- the toilet had evident signs of rust under the border, poor cleanness
- the bidet had broken plug handle, impossible to use
-water pressure was allowing only a tiny wire of water to flow
- absolutely no hot water
- I had an early flight so I asked for setting up wake up call, never got any
- asked to get a trolley for luggage at my room at 6am and nobody showed up
in conclusion, expected services from an upscale hotel were not met, basic services like cleanness and flowing water+hot water also missing.
Can't believe this is Sheraton in 2012

Rated 4 out of 5 by NP18 Great hotel - Bad food
We have enjoyed the stay at the hotel but made one big mistake, we have decided to have our dinner at the hotel restaurant. The quality was much below our expectation, the waiting time was very long and we fealt that someone in the kitchen thinks that whatever he will serve "they" will eat and if "they" will order a shoup with clams & Brendy and finally get just some boiled frozen shrimps" they" will not notice. Our complaint was ignored.

The hotel is modern and very convenient but is getting out of date in some ways. The club lounge and bar space are excellent and the staff are first rate. It can be loud but is at the airport so that is to be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg6200 Great Location, Wonderful Staff
I travel to Milan/Malpensa often. I’ve had the opportunity to stay at several other hotels in the area but none can compare to the comfort and convenience of the Sheraton Malpensa. Its location with regards to the airport and the train station make it easy to get to where I need to be and the staff has always been first rate. It will always be my first choice when making reservations.

This hotel is a good, functional hotel only let down by the very poor service in the bar and the dark brown decor which makes it seem a little drab.
Restaurant excellent both food and service

Rated 5 out of 5 by TSizzle Incredible Staff, Great Experience
After a long week of business throughout Italy I was thoroughly spent. The close proximity of the hotel to the rental car drop off area was exceptional and a blessing. At check in I was met by the hotels friendly staff who quickly identified me as an SPG member and my check in was quick and easy. In the morning heading to check out of the hotel I glanced at the flight status screen located in front of the elevators in the lobby to find my flight had been cancelled. Because of this early alert I was able to contact the airlines and make new flight plans before the rush at the ticket counter. After a short walk to the terminal I boarded an alternative flight and continued home. Every member of your staff I met was friendly and helpful down to a final good bye in the morning from the hotel cleaning staff. Thank you for an exceptional stay at your hotel

Rated 4 out of 5 by TKSY Convenient
Generally, no complaints. Although not in the city centre, the frequent train down town is convenient and fast. There are minor attention to details which can still be improved on. Some hotel provides a fruit platter to welcome it's members. It would be nice to have free wi-fi in the room. However, at least there's free wi-fi in the public area. The website should state that swimming cap is required and for Euro5, it can be purchased.

Rated 4 out of 5 This Hotel is a great home away from home
staying at the Sheraton Milan Malpensa Airport Hotel was so good! we got of the plane and walked straight into our home for the next few days. Some may think its to far from everything but a short inexpensive train ride to Milan City allowed us to see the world of Milan , Italy. At the end of the day we were home and recouping for another! At the end of it all there was no early morning rust to catch our flight as we were there!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pericles427 Great Location, Poor Check-in
For flights out of Malpensa the location can't be beat, and the restuarant and the spa were both top-notch. But the check-in was totally unacceptable: while five people stood in line, five staff members stood aorund doing nothing but directing people in which line to stand. For people coming off the road and looking to get some rest before a flight, this was really unsatisfactory.

Rated 3 out of 5 by thevlture average European travel hotel
Pros: beautiful, spacious. Modern rooms. Location. Menu prices very reasonable.
Cons: pool (see below), room amenities(see below)
Having stayed at over 100 SPG properties worldwide, this is the first time that a shower cap was mandatory to use the pool. 5 euro from the hotel if you don't have one. A little too "convenient" honestly. Was I at a hotel or had I become an extra in The Great Gatsby? I refused and skipped the pool that I had been looking forward too. Little wonder I saw no one using the pool. Also, 10 euro to use the the steam room and sauna for a Platinum guest is a ripoff.
Secondly, in typical European travel hotel fashion there are no ironing boards in the guest rooms. But unlike every other European hotel have stayed this hotel does not have them available to bring to your room. You either have to wait for the cleaning service to open or take your clothes to the crew lounge to iron your clothes. Being told this at check-in would have been nice. This was 20 minutes I did not account for when waking up. I was told it is for safety reasons. Apparently every hotel and motel in America is unsafe. Who knew?

Rated 3 out of 5 by stefanob The only game in town at MXP
This hotel has the capability to be a great stay but every time I have stayed, there has been at least something (and sometimes more than one) that has been extremely irritating - something that doesn't work as it should (be it air conditioning, printing services, etc). Staff is always friendly and rooms are spacious and comfortable but the hotel is quirky and seems to have been built sloppily

Rated 4 out of 5 by Americanbusinesstraveler Mixed review
The hotel is undoubtedly convenient given the remote location of the airport. And the club lounge and fitness centers are great. Downsides are the TV and internet, which are both subpar. The other downside is the price, which is quite high given its distance from downtown Milan. I have stayed there twice for business and will likely again for its convenience, but it is my hope the internet and TV improve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by thebellaimage Great place to rest after a long holiday
I had a long and wonderful vacation in Italy, but a 9.30 flight out of Malpensa to JFK. Rather than deal with traffic, etc. early in the morning, I decided to try the Sheraton. This is very uncharacteristic of me as I generally make a point of seeking out non-chain hotels in Italy. Nevertheless, the Sheraton did not disappoint! The room was large, the bathroom luxurious, room service a bonus, and breakfast excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jules48 This hotel is well situated
If you need to be at Malpensa Airport then this is the place to stay but dont look at some of the features that need rectification.
The air conditioning in our room was never able to be set by us and 3 calls for help resulted in advice to open the window.
Water only escaped from the shower waste after I pulled the whole plug out of the floor.
The building is looking tired and needs maintenance now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by supatight80 Expect Junior Suite Upgrades for Plats
Booked a BRG rate that was dirt cheap but yet they accorded me with a jr. suite upgrade upon check-in.
Very nice folks here and the lounge can make you so full!
Only thing I don't quite get (and this after staying in their deluxe suite last November) and their jr. suite is that there is no privacy at all when taking a shower...hmmmm....Thank goodness it was only me travelling this time around :)

The sprawling hotel offers wonderful rooms, restaurant and club lounge.
The staff was very friendly when we arrived - we were upgraded to the diplomat suite on the club level - the lounge had good snacks and free wine and beer at night and an ample breakfast.
The restaurant served an excellent dinner for a reasonable price and the bar was open until 2pm
easy access to trains and rental car options
a good stay

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bridget8 Great and restful time.
We were told that this is the best way to fly away from Milan and it was. Even though our flight left at 10:20, we were told to be there 3 hours early. Since we only had to walk across the indoor walkway, and had located our airline the day before when we checked in (always a good idea because we hunted a bit), we had a great time and next time hope to take my bathing suit because a swim would have been lovely.
