Welcome to the House of the Whales!
You’ll stay in a gorgeous loft in one of the most beautiful parts of the city, near the Church of San Cristoforo, on the Navigli.
The building used to be a book manufacturing facility, and it’s been recently renovated from the ground up.

The apartment is on two floor, connected by glass and iron stairs.
The industrial parquet covers every floor, and it’s good to walk barefoot.
The kitchen is comfortable. It’s got an oven, dishwasher and everything you need.
There are two bathrooms, one of which has a large shower with a glass mosaic.

The main bedroom has got a kingsize bed, while the living room has a convertible sofa that can become a very comfy second kingsize bed in an instant. The apartment can house 4 people comfortably.

It’s a very well lit apartment, but if you want to sleep into the day you can close all tents and enjoy the peace, far from noises and voices.

The neighborhood is residential, you’re very near pubs and clubs, but the house is very quiet because the entrance is in a court. For your security, by night you can activate the alarm system with a simple button.

The Whale House is very central. It’s connected to the historic centre with the tram no. 2 (you can get to the Duomo in 15-20 minutes of tram ride) or you can take the underground on the green line, MM2 Porta Genova.

In the neighborhood you’ll find flea markets, characteristic restaurants, pizzerias, pubs and clubs, on top of banks, bakeries, pharmacies, tobacconists. Not far from the place, you can do the groceries in supermarkets and colorful neighborhood markets.
The Naviglio side is a perfect place to jog, but you’ll also find swimming pools and gyms.

We’ll give you every information for you to navigate the hood with ease.

House Rules
Check-in is after 3PM

Siete i benvenuti, sentitevi a casa vostra!
Le regole da seguire non sono molte: fumare solo fuori casa (c'è uno spazio coperto dove farlo); trattare bene le parti delicate come tendaggi e tutto il resto; e fare poco rumore dopo le 22 nella stanza da letto, in quanto c'è una parete condivisa con un'altra abitazione.

Noi abitiamo di fianco e siamo a disposizione per qualsiasi necessità!
