It turned out that FireFly office was just some 200 meters from this hotel, so we didn't had much driving for the first day from during our seven day trip in Italy. OK, we drove to the nearby town of Ferno to have a Italian style supper at Osteria San Martino.
If you are traveling by car - I highly recommend to choose hotels near airports - you won't be in city center, but you will have much more benefits, rather than staying in center - free parking, cheaper price are just the two and main reasons I prefer hotels/motels outside city centers. And Holiday Inn Express hotel in small town called Case Nuove (located just next to Milan/Malpensa airport) was our first choice when looking through Booking.com.
They have smokers rooms, which is essential, if you smoke, if you don't - good for you (don't even start). TV could be bigger and feature more channels, but all the rest was perfect. We got what we paid for.

Simple bathroom with shower
Small TV set at Holiday Inn Express Milan/Malpensa Airport hotel
The choice of TV channels was limited, but not a big issue actually, they have a high-speed internet access instead.
Wide variety of breakfast
Scrambled eggs, brioches, fruits, prosciutto e.t.c.. Really good breakfast here.
Free parking at Holiday Inn Express Milan/Malpensa airport hotel
The Bottom Line
We paid about EUR 50 for this hotel, and next I will travel to Milan/Malpensa airport area - I will choose this hotel again.
