A few steps from Porta Genova Underground Station, we offer a fully furnished two-room apartment of about 45 sqm, at a nice competitive price. The apartment is in fact located in the heart of the Navigli (The Milano Canals), an area apt to easily reach the city inner center and the main Universities. I is positioned on the second floor of a
building characteristic for its communal balconies, in a very pleasant courtyard. The space is composed of a good size living room with sofa bed and an open plan kitchen; on the wooden ceiling were painted the portraits of the people who previously lived in that apartment. The master bedroom faces the opposite side of an internal courtyard, hence being very quiet. The bathroom has its shower. Ideal for those staying in Milano for long periods, for work or study, but also for tourists who seek a solution for a few nights.
Central location. Quiet and pleasant environment.
The location of the area is of particular interest, as it is in fact the heart of the city. It looks like a neighborhood populated by different social ranks. Once a peripheral area, today a nerve center,due to the closeness to the “Navigli” and clubs both day and night. It is a very safe place being it a very crowdy location, day and night. The “Navigli” are nearby , a picturesque place that characterizes this area and that are closed to traffic during the summer.

Overall it works for two to three people.
We had an excellent stay with Temporary House. They met us punctually despite our arrival late at night and greeted us with free wine and beers inside the apartment. The apartment itself was quite small but extremely cosy and well furnished, with comfortable sleeping arrangements for 4 people. It was also excellently located, just a stone's throw from the lively Naviglio and a short-ish walk from the Duomo and other tourist attractions. Gas and electricity are cheap if you manage your consumption and the check-out procedure is friendly and reliable. All in all an enjoyable stay and great value for money.
I specifically chose this apartment for its location. The apartment is a bit further from Milan FS (15 euros by taxi or metroline M2 - 15min), but the area is a bit more "arty" and you are not in the middle of all tourist hot spots. Duomo and surroundings are easy to reach by walk (20-25min) or metro/tram (10min or less). Few minutes walk from the apartment you have the Navigli District where you find a lot of cute restaurants by the canals and where lots of people come for drinks in the night. In the same street of the apartment you have this definitely to try out ice bar - called Stickies. The owner makes fresh, gluten free, vegan and any kind you like icecream on sticks and they are delicious - we went every night. Also you will find around a lot of small boutique shops for the shopaholic, a small carrefour express and the metro/tram is around the corner.
Communication was good with Marco and we found the apartment clean and tidy upon arrival. He is an easy going and nice person. Small detail - The ceiling is wonderful!!
Also - remember to bring mosquito spray if you plan to visit in summer. Milan is full with them! :)
Marco was really nice and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is small and nicely decorated, as pictured. It is good for 2-3 people. Everything you need is within walking distance.
