The Space

YES, WE MADE IT !!! (March 2014)
We reached the number of 75 reviews on Airbnb and we have top-ratings (5 stars) overall and on each of the 6 different ranking details!
On Airbnb, only 1 other apartment in Milano (out of 1400) has reached this goal, and it is more expensive than ours.
A big, big thank you to all our guests !!!


65 square meters / 700 sq feet apartment recently renovated by the owner, an architect, in one of the most interesting, lively and safe areas of Milan (western part of the city center: Fiera - Corso Vercelli - Piazza Piemonte).
The apartment is very calm and quiet (rare to find in Milan) thanks to its position, protected from the street noise by 2 small gardens.

On Airbnb this apartment is one of the most rented in Milan, with more than 75 reviews, all positive, in less than 22 months, and one of the very few with 100% satisfaction of guests on all the rankings (you can make comparisons on the Airbnb website with other flats).

Fast, wireless internet access.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I highly recommend this apartment. We stayed there for 4 nights in June. It is an ideal place to explore Milan with its proximity to the Wagner metro station (6 minute walk) and downtown. Giovanni was very helpful and accommodating - met us on arrival at the apartment, and even gave us a ride to an excellent restaurant close-by pretty late in the evening. He was also available on phone for any questions we had.

    For a family of 4 with 2 teenagers it felt like a home away from home with ACs, washer, awesome WiFi, full kitchen and lots of good eating places within 6-10 minutes walk. The kids loved it and would love to go back.

    Thanks Giovanni for all your help.

  • We received such a warm welcome by Francesca with valuable local information provided and lots of great advice for restaurants, sights and transport. The apartment was very comfortable for two, with everything we needed for our stay. It was really handy having a washing machine to use. The location is excellent, being a few minutes walk from the Metro, we were able to get around really easily. The local supermaket and food market was really close. Francesca's recommendation for LadyBu (the buffalo mozzarella store that also serves meals) was AMAZING! So was the pizza place. We felt very much at home and we'd love to visit again. Thank you, guys!!! :)

  • I spend 4 beautiful days in Milan in the very nice apartment, impression is realy like on the photos. Very clean and you can feel like a realy Milanese ;-) when you have italien ! breakfast in the little Bar SOLE e LUNA very close to the apartement. The apartement is very quiet and you can rest and relax during or after a exhausting day in the city. In the kichen ist everything in good quality to prepare some meals. The area is rather upscale, nevertheless very good for shopping. You find little boutiques and stores with better prices then in the center and tourist quarter.
    Hint: If you do´nt like going by Metropolitan (like me) it is very easy (and more interesting) to go by tram: No.16 up to duomo.
    I hope I will be back soon. CiaoBacioBine

  • It has been a pleasure to meet Giovanni. I arrived very late from the station and he was expecting me in the flat.
    The flat was designed by Giovanni and looks amazing.
    It is a 5 star apartment with great wireless and the flat is very quiet.

    I'll probably come again to stay at Giovanni's flat next year...

  • I stayed at Giovanni's apartment for 10 days in november and I felt very much at home. His place is very well equipped, clean and cosy. Everything worked perfectly and the internet connection was also very good. It is located 2mins from a subway station and supermarket and in one of the nicer neighbourhoods of Milan. I definitely recommend this apartment for anyone going to Milan.

I moved with my wife Francesca to Lake Maggiore from Milan 3 years ago, and I kept this flat that Francesca (an architect) has completely re-designed. We have a good experience in being guests and in hosting people, since we are members of Homelink (home exchange): more than 80 people have already stayed in our apartment (... and they have all been quite happy about that...!). Don't be shy and contact me for any curiosity you have about my house. Giovanni P.S. A warm welcome to all the "Foodies" and "Wine Lovers" group members!
