The Space

Beautiful apartment in one of the most enchanting areas of the City, we are close to the dock, the old port of Milan which flowed the "Navigli", ancient canals designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Strategic position to visit the city thanks to the nearby metro station. A delightful walk along Via Torino - one of the meccas of the Milan shopping - takes you to "Piazza del Duomo" and from here the most beautiful promenade in Europe - Via Dante - will take you to the "Castello Sforzesco" the majestic fortress of the City. The district is characterized by the presence of many old taverns and restaurants and just 150 meters away is the "Navigli" district, the symbol of Milan's nightlife.
Extremely quiet 35sqm apartment located on the fifth floor of a pleasant building of the late nineteenth century. The sun enters the house in the morning and evening. The property consists of a living room with comfortable double sofa-bed, a separate kitchen and bathroom. Internet wi-fi for free

  • We booked for 4 days, but with no AC it was too warm for me (there were 2 fans). After 2 days with little sleep, we continued our travel. Big plus to Filiberto for giving us refund for 2 remaning nights :-) Also close to pubs/resturants by the canals. Happy to come back during a cooler season.

  • Great location and friendly, helpful people to deal with but the appartment was much so that I left early. While the location is handy, as they say in the description I think it is not so true to describe this apartment as beautiful. Tthe bathroom in particular was in terrible condition - cracks and mould and dirty marks - there was even long black hairs on the bathroom floor. ( I have short blonde hair)

    The photo on the site and description lead me to believe this would be very beautiful and quiet and private - I hear traffic noise and sirens very loudly as there are two big roads nearby. Also the photo of the balcony is not so true - there are no plants over the windows to give more privacy, and those that are there on the balcony are dead. Everyday there are people walking past my window as this is the entrance to the lift for other apartments - 4 in total ? Also if I leave the bathroom window open I can see people’s faces at the lift. Opposite me are other apartments and I look out at their washing or see them on their balconies

    It may be ok for a day or two but most def not for a stay of five days or more.

    I raised my concerns with Filberto and he was very good about refunding me and apologised as he thought the bathroom should have been repaired. If you are thinking of staying here check - or maybe you don't care so much if it is run down. hope you find this feedback helpful. I am staying in a very beautiful apartment now in Florence instead. and will make it easy to get a refund of my money. It would be kind of you to refund me two days to make up for the issues I have raised (and have put up with)

    Response from Filiberto:

    Hi Cassandra, the problem is due to the fact we had a water loss from the roof ubove the bathroom after some renewing works - we have painted the walls after we discover it but it seems there is still a small water loss which has stained the wall after we painted it - we will have it fixed as soon as possible

  • Great stay! We loved our stay in Milan at Alessi. It was a nice apartment, close to the metro, and quiet for sleeping. Filiberto and his colleagues were very accommodating with our early arrival.

  • We had a nice stay at Filiberto's flat. We were welcomed by his friend, who gave us the keys and explained very well how to get to the flat.
    It's a small and pretty appartment, and there was some nice attention to us : some maps of the city on the table, a map of the nearest facilities on the wall (bakery, supermarket and pharmacy).
    It was a bit noisy, but not too much. Just enough to see that Milan is a living city :)
    It's also well situated (about 5-10mins walking to the closest subwat station, which goes to Duomo really fast).

    Thank you a lot Filiberto ! :)

  • It's a small well located apartment but unfortunately the apartment could have been cleaner, specially since it's owned by an agency. The location of the apartment is great but the apartment was not very clean. We had to re wash everything before using. It would also be nice to have at least some soap in the bathroom sink to wash our hands and better lighting in the bathroom. Be aware that you have to go to their agency to be able to get the keys when you arrive. The person that took care of our reservation was nice and gave us maps to the city.

    Hi Isabella, if you only had contacted me I would send immediately someone to clean the apartment again. I promise I will check the cleaning lady more often

  • Great studio in a great location. Close to the Navigli canal district with lots of bars and good restaurants and walking distance from Milan's stunning Duomo. Highly recommended! Very helpful and welcoming hosts.

  • Вітаю всіх! Так сталось, що ми з подругою перебували в Мілані в найсумніші часи для нашої вітчизни - для України, з 18 по 22 лютого 2014 року. Ми ще в грудні 2013 року купили квитки на виступ улюбленої групи Depeche Mode, який відбувся в Мілані 20 лютого і не мали уяви, що ця подорож виявиться для нас справжнім іспитом, адже майже весь час ми не виходили із апартаментів і уважно слідкували за подіями на Батьківщині. Але, все ж таки, я маю що сказати наступним арендаторам. В офісі в Мілані нас зустрічав Marcello, дуже привітна людина! Доречі, за вказавками Filiberto, нам дуже легко вдалось знайти їх офіс )) Розташування апартаментів добре, але на фото вони виглядають краще, ніж вони є насправді... трошки застарілі, і зовсім малі ) але все чисто і затишно! І ще дещо. Я довго вагалась, у якій частині міста зупинитись і обрала район біля каналів, але те що побачила, мене просто засмутило - там виявилось брудно, понуро і зовсім не романтично. Якщо коротко, бронювати ці апартаменти можна, але на багато не сподівайтесь! Бажаю всім приємних і цікавих подорожей і..... Слава Україні!

  • Flat really closed to navigli/colonne area. Functional and cozy with everything you need. Really kind and "happy mood" staff despite I arrived after checkin time. At the checkin, I received datailed and useful information about flat: detailed map, check out instructions, depliant about city and its attractions. So, for future time, I'll sure book it, if possible, for my overnight stays.
