Elevator saved us the climb to the fifth floor.

  • 5 of 5

APARTMENT: it was on the fifth floor and there was the working elevator. We had the General's House. The apartment was very close to local shopping, local restaurants, local supermarket called PAM. It was clean.

PROPERTY Management: He greeted us and oriented us to the apartment. He was resourceful when asked about kitchen and cleaning supplies.

Would definitely recommend the general’s apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the general’s apartment. It was plenty big for our party of 8, conveniently located to underground transportation and great restaurants & shopping. The communication was fantastic! We had a late flight, we were allowed to check out after the assigned time. Plenty of towels, supplies, air conditioners in each room and a washer/dryer which was really appreciated at the end of our vacation. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Milan Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

This stay was at the end of our Italy trip. We loved this location and the owners.

Our flights were cancelled and the owners served us very well with taxi and information support.. We loved their information book in the apartment. There were 11 of us and they prepared a bed and plenty of towels for us all. What a wonderful memory of their lovely apartment, fully equipped and their tremendous hospitality.

Location was ideal

  • 5 of 5

An excellent location close to the restaurants and an easy walk into the main city centre. Residence had everything we needed and was very comfortable for our too short a stay. Communications in English were really appreciated and our stay was very enjoyable.

Would use this location again as it is also along the main tourist Blue bus line so when sight seeing it was very easy to just jump off for a short walk back to the home.

Spacious apartment close to metro station

  • 5 of 5

Guila and Gianluca helped to make our stay in Milan a wonderful experience. Communication was excellent and if we had questions or needed something, they were always at the door within minutes. The apartment was in a secure building with plenty of sheets, towels, along with a washer and dryer and beds were comfortable. The spacious living room was a great gathering place for eight of us who stayed here. The apartment could comfortably sleep and accommodate at least 12. If we return to Milan we will definitely stay here again.

Not good

  • 2 of 5

The photos didn’t reflect the actual property, it looks as if it’s the same property on the listing but in reality is 2 seperate properties. We were very disappointed when we arrived to the property and we were crammed into the apartment that should only fit 9 people and we have 11 people. Beds were set up in the rooms where they are 1-foot apart enough room to get in and out. There are 3 comfortable beds and the rest is futons, rolling beds and sofa beds. We paid a lot for the property. The only nice thing is the 1 minute to the local station which can take you to most of the city attractions. This property should only to accommodate for 8 people . Everything is very old . The host responsed to our questions on a timely manner. We never see the host . Our family didn’t have a good experience for the price we paid

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that you have not been satisfied with your stay, but I believe that your criticism does not correspond to the truth. 1) The house is very large, and comfortably accommodates up to 14 people, as evidenced by many other reviews. 2) In the house there are six large beds: two double beds and 4 single beds. And four sofa beds: two double and two singles. You have used all the normal beds and only a sofa bed, 3) The price you paid, about € 30 per head per night, does not seem so high, considering also the fact that the house is located in a very central area of ​​the city, and in a precious building of the twenties. You also paid for 10 people, but you stayed in 11, without notifying me and without paying the surcharge planned for one more person. And this was very incorrect of you. 4) You did not meet me personally because I was out of town for work, but on two occasions my daughters came immediately to you, to solve your personal problems. 5) Our availability was maximum even when you canceled one night of your stay and we returned the money even if not due. 6) The pictures of the two properties are positioned at the announcement by the website, not by us, and therefore it is not our responsibility if this may appear unclear. In the presentation of the house and in the photos, however, we write very clearly which apartment is referred to. In any case we would be happy to be able to host you again and we are sure that your judgment will change
