The place is 10 minute walking to Duomo metro station (lines yellow and red) and 10 minutes walking as well to Sant'Ambrogio green line metro station. If you mind walking, you can reach those stations by bus (line 94 to Sant'ambrogio) or lines 2, 3, or 14 to Duomo.
Please check the address for yourself on a map (Corso di Porta Ticinese 12), this is downtown Milan for real. I dare to say the overall quality and location you won't find for the same price.
Should you have the need to CHECK-IN/OUT outside the time frame I use to have, please just let me know.
The apartment is at second floor and there is a lift.
You will find bed sheets and towels for you.
There are plenty of restaurants, pizzerias, fast food, sushi... around here and you will find one open even if you arrive late in the evening.
I made the design of my house and also built part of it. I tried to exploit any given space in a rational and aesthetically pleasant way. I used the best materials I could. For instance, in the bathroom you will have real Bisazza mosaic, the magnolia type.
The kitchen is fully functional either if you want to cook something or just microwave something.
Even if the space is limited I used mirrors to stretch it up a little. I think the result is awesome. You'll tell me.
The house itself is located in an historical palace, an ancient XIII century convent. At night you will be sleeping comfortably in a new latex mattress and the place is quiet and away from the streets. The third person might sleep on the leather couch that I can assure you is very comfortable But if you wanna have fun and meet people, just walk out of the building door.
Nevertheless, the major touristic and historical attractions are just minutes walking from here. Name one and take a walk to get there.
You can reach here with several public transportation means. It's just 20 minutes away from Milano Central station.
Lastly, I take pride in saying that here you will experience the only piece of queen size automatic foldable bed that I designed and built. The mattress is in lattice, 18 cm thick.
Please watch the video on youtube to get an idea(actually, the one in the video is not as good as the final version I have now):

Samsung LCD 22'', only italian programs and some BBC and CNN
Fully functional, italian espresso machine, electric and microwave oven. The table has wheels attached to move it around. There are 4 foldable wood chairs.
L'appartamento è piccolo ma studiato molto bene per essere funzionale: c'è tutto quello che serve. La posizione è centralissima ed è l'ideale soprattutto per chi viaggia da solo e magari ha voglia la sera di fare una camminata e vedere il Duomo (ci si arriva a piedi in 15 minuti).
C'è il wifi a disposizione: dettaglio non da poco. Chris è stato gentilissimo e mi ha aiutata via mail a superare una piccola difficoltà di collegamento che avevo con il mio iPhone. Un padrone di casa super efficiente anche da lontano. A Milano poi c'è Mariam, anche lei gentilissima. Insomma, lo consiglio sicuramente!
We were greeted by Christian's friend Mariam. The location is amazing. It is right in front of a taxi stand; there are tram stations few minutes away; Duomo is in walking distance; and grocery, butcher shops near byThe apartment is very clean and neat. Unfortunately, it is not very spacious. You can also hear the next neighbour talking but this did not bother us as we were extremely tired by the time we came back.
Christian right off the bat was very friendly and communicative, helping us to get our plans in order.
The apartment is in a great location for taking advantage of nightlife, as well as an easy walk from the Duomo. Though the apartment is small, it is thoughtfully set up; the murphy bed automatically folds up making space for hanging out.
Thanks for a great stay Christian!
This place is located right near the center of the city. Duomo, Sforza, Brera and many other places in a walking distance. Apartment is comfy, clean and very quiet. Everything is smart organised and we was completely satisfied with our stay at Christian's place.
Very well placed to discover Milan by foot and close to any public transportation. In the middle (email hidden)ly surrounding, but the flat itself is very quiet. Small but nice, tidy and smartly arranged. Christian was very responsive and Mariam very supportive. Great!
One advice if you travel by car, arriving by the south as we did: park at Famagosta (very easy and quick to find), 4 metro stations away from Sant Ambrogio, and then ten minute walk top Christian's place. It cost around 8,5 € per 24h
Great apartment; excellent location and creative use of space. Stayed in Milan for 9 nights. The apartment is located right by the Roman Columns on Corso di Porta Ticinese
Easy walking distance to the Duomo; Navigli canal area with lots of great bars/restaurants; Sforza castle, Cadorna station, Roman Columns.
The place and the location is really good! All the people I met there were all telling me that it's the best area if you're looking for something more cool and edgy. As I am in the fashion business I was really glad to meet and hang out with a lot of young and creative designers there.. Very cool!
Christian and Mariam were very helpful and reactive whenever needed. The place is just as on the photos. Compact but enough for 2. The place is really central and has everything. Surprisingly enough it is safe from the outside noise. The only trouble was the upstairs neighbour walking back and forth "on heels" but she behaved during the weekend ;) 2 very nice restaurants (burger and Japanese) just at the door.
L'appartement est idéalement situé et trés agreable ! Suffisant pour 2 personnes. L'appartement est situé dans un quartier trés commercant et vraiment situé près de tout les lieux à visiter. Nous avons récupéré les clefs sans problèmes le 1er jour et notre hôte était disponible et à l'écoute.
Merci beaucoup pour ce beau séjour !!
The apartment is ideally located and very pleasant! Enough for 2 people. The apartment is located in a very neighborhood merchant and really near all the places to visit. We got the keys without problems the first day and our host was available and listening. Thank you very much for the nice stay!
The apartment is in a perfect location, walking distance to all the sights and lots of restaurants and bars to explore. Apartment was very clean and Christian's friend, Mariam, was really friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again when in Milan next! Thank you!
