For my wife and me, this was our first Airbnb experience, and we are thrilled at how good it was. The information on the web site was accurate and described the place honestly. The apartment is modern, very clean, and spacious; the bed is comfortable. Location is about a 5 minute walk to the metro, and a short train ride to the center of Milan. A good supermarket is across the street, so we saved on meals by shopping for groceries, and a good, moderate-priced restaurant that Francesco recommended is just a block away. We noticed a dry-cleaner/laundry on the way from the subway.
Francesco was a most gracious and thoughtful host, much more so than we could have expected. He did everything possible to make us feel at home, and assisted us in person with a lot of local information and guidance. Francesco took time from work to meet with us and he made sure that our visit would be great.
While a B&B is a very different experience than a hotel, I would compare his apartment very favorably to a 4-star hotel in terms of quality. In spaciousness, it was even better. And even as senior citizens ourselves, we did not miss any hotel conveniences; in fact, we were better served personally by Francesco than any hotel would provide. Bottom line: Francesco's apartment would be our first choice for a return visit.
L'appartement est superbe, très bien entretenu et idéalement placé à 5 minutes a pied du tram et du métro. Francesco est un hôte très attentionné, l'accueil est chaleureux et le petit plus de fournir de l'eau, du lait et des yaourt à l'arrivée est vraiment très sympa. Nous y reviendrons lors d'un prochain séjour et conseillons cet appartement pour qui veut visiter cette belle ville!
Franceso's place was fantastic - exactly as advertised. The location was convenient to the city center and the place was very clean and well kept. Francesco was prompt in communication and very helpful getting around. He also bought us some great yogurt.
We had a great weekend at Francesco's flat.
The apartment, the neighborhood, the welcoming by Francesco... was all excellent.
The apartment look exactly as the photos, everything super modern and clean! There was coffee, tee.. even yoghurt waiting for us.
This was definitely my best experience at Airbnb.
Francesco and his place are wonderful! I met Francesco when I checked in. He was kind and told me everything I needed to know. Not to mention he had water and yogurt stocked in the house. The apartment was clean, modern, stylish and had everything you would need for a great stay. Communication was great. Location was great. Checkin and checkout were easy. Would stay here again!
Francesco was very prompt to reply and met us at the door with the keys. He was very friendly and happy to help with any questions about the local area. The flat was fantastic, it was larger than expected and very well decorated. It is well located close to the metro and a tram, we were able to get into the centre of milan in 10 minutes. We would happily stay again on our next visit to Milan.
We werden voortreffelijk ontvangen door Francesco die ons stipt om 12.30 uur stond op te wachten , ons rondgeleid heeft in zijn appartement en ons ook tips gegeven heeft over winkels in de buurt, restaurantjes enzovoort. Het appartement was piekfijn in orde, met zeer veel smaak ingericht en zeer leuk om Milaan te verkennen. Echt een aanrader dus!
About the Host, Francesco
If you are looking for contemporary art
A pretty, little church quite near the main church. Don't miss it because of its trompe l'oeuil by Donato Bramante (a renowned italian artist as Raffaello, or Leonardo da Vinci, or Michelangelo)
The best bar for a smart lunch or an aperitiv
For those who get confused strolling along the Navigli in search of a restaurant among dozen and dozen of bistrots and tapas bars I have a safe port of call to suggest "At Rebelot del Pont"
A nice place where you can taste "mozzarella" + design.
