This 1920s apartment on the 2nd floor with elegant staircase looks and feels much much better and refined than the photographs showing on this page - very spacious, 4 metres ceiling, very bright and airy, kitchen and dinning area are in right proportion, very clean and minimal, very functional, decorated with freshly picked flowers from the back garden, there're everything in the cupboards, pots and pans and culinary are tidy and clean, if you'd cook simple meal during your stay you'd enjoy the Kitchen as much as we did (an excellent supermarket called U2 is just 8 minutes away, also 5 min away an excellent restaurant called Altrove serves thin and soft oven-fired pizza which is one of the best we have tried in Italy, as recommended by the host). Large windows, overlooking a picturesque square where you see the locals resting quietly around a fountain day and night. Japanese air-conditioning for the summer. Bedroom is huge, bed and pillow very comfortable, the wardrobe is bigger than a bus. Bathroom very clean and modern, hand-wash and towels are of top quality.
We were staying for a few days thus upon arrival we were given a fabulous hamper of crusty bread, chocolate biscotti, herbal tea, orange juice, apples and jams. The host Alessandra who also live in the same building is super friendly and kind and caring, she discreetly treat you as a good friend and this apartment is a labour of love. It is so comfortable that you'd rather stay in and relax, do some cooking, read a book and sip some wine than going out rushing between shopping and sightseeing spots.
Although it might seems slightly out of town of Milan, it actually takes only 10 minutes (one stop) by train to Milan's Central Railway Station, which is of course also connected to metro (if you come to Milan by train, as we did, you can take a train to this apartment on the next platforms, then 5 minutes walk), alternatively when you go out you can take a train to Porta Garibaldi, also 10 minutes ride (3 stops), for one of the major metro lines.
Previously a guest stayed here for 6 months and I can see why. Overall this apartment is a so-called home away from home, highly recommend, especially for couples and extended stay.
