Charming open space in the middle of Navigli, the net of canals designed by Leonardo Da Vinci.
Close to subway which connects you to railway stations (Centrale and Garibaldi), and to airtrain (Cadorna), and few minutes biking to the central square, Piazza del Duomo, the apartment, designed by Claudio Poli, has modern design and functionality, in a tipical milanese building, on the canal.
Night life in Naviglio Grande is quite gentle, differently from the close "beer canal", Naviglio Pavese.
Despite of dimentions (it's a miniloft, very well designed by Architect Claudio Poli, Professor at Politecnico di Milano), you feel like travelling (email hidden), open and free, (email hidden), vertical and orizontal labyrinth made of boxes, or Lego bricks.
So, going to sleep is like playing a game. On the top of the castle.
So many little bugs to be fixed, step by step, shouldn't be a real obstacle for a pleasant stay...!
The apartment is for the guests, complitly.
Interaction with Guests
Me and Anton have many communications with guests before the ckeck in. During the check in yuo can have all the information you need. If you have some problem during the stay we can help you, but the apartment is yours during the stay.
The neighborhood Navigli, Naviglio Grande, is very charming. You can go by foot (no car), and have many little restuarant and pubs on the canal. We leave there for many years and we love this place.
Our flat is very near to Porta Genova (subway station - green line) - 150 mt from us.
From Malpensa airport:
you can have the train Malpensa Express to Milano cadorna (45 min) - € 12,00; from Cadorna you have subway (stops to Porta Genova).
From Malpensa TR. 1/2 to STAZIONE CENTRALE - 50 min. € 10,00.
From Stazione Centrale:
Subway - green line direction Abbiategrasso/Assago - 7 stops. Our stop is Porta Genova. Ticket: € 1,50.
From Linate airport:

Check in and check out are flexible if the some day we haven't a new guest, but we have many guest, so normally:
check in is possible from 1.00 pm, check out is at 10.00 a.m.
We love dogs and cats. You can have your animals with you.
You can smoke in the apartment during your stay (but open the windows to respect other guests who don't smokes).
I would recommend this location to anyone who wants to have a very good stay in Milano at a reasonable price. First of all, the hostess, Irina, is a very nice person to deal with. Secondly, the location. It's in walking distance from Centro Storico and less than 5 min to go to Porta Genova transport hub (metro, tram terminus, train station). Navigli is perhaps the most vibrant district of Milano which at the same time retained the feel of a "classic" Italian town (atypically for Milano). Lots of bars / cafes / good restaurants (Le Vigne, Al Pont de Ferr) around. One of the food outlets is situated right in the ground floor where you can have a very good pizza daytime and an "aperitivo" (food for the price of a cocktail) in the evening. Plus a bakery with a fantastic focaccia on the left hand from the entrance. And finally the apartment which turned out to be bigger than I expected and has literally everything that you might need during your stay. Despite the vibrant nightlife of Naviglio Grande the apt is very quiet since the windows face the courtyard. I couldn't ask for more.
Irina was a wonderful hostess, she expected us at the apartment and showed us everything. The neighborhood is amazing, full of little bars, restaurants and vintage shops, and a block away from a subway station.
The apartment itself was comfortable, it had everything you need, including a lot of food.
I'd definitely recommend it!!
L'accoglienza è stata puntuale e calorosa, nell'appartamento abbiamo trovato molte cose di cui potevamo usufruire, anche la descrizione sul sito era molto precisa e le foto rispecchiano la realtà. L'appartamento si trova proprio sul naviglio a davvero pochi passi da metro e tram e vicinissima ai locali dove uscire la sera!
Irina is really sweet and nice host that I feel really appreciated! Moreover, the location of the house is awesome that so many nice restaurants and bars are just right there.(Mainly local Milan people are there so it's awesome) Home itself is also very nice with good heating systems and clean and modern atmosphere. When I saw the all the kitchen utensils and foods for breakfast, I really got touched. Absolutely recommendable for your staying in Milan!! Thank you Irina for such a warm welcoming and letting me staying at your lovely place! :)
Ottima posizione, appartamento pulito ed adeguato alle nostre esigenze!!
I've actually just managed the reservation for my colleague coming to Milan for a few business day from Frankfurt. I live in Milan in the nearby area and I had strongly suggested this place from Irina instead of anonymous hotels. My colleague was very happy about the accomodation and enjoyed Irina's place. Nice welcome kit in the refrigerator with first needs items available. I will strongly suggest it for other occasions and to some other friends too.
