So I ask to my guests:
respect the rule about the trash recycl
don't leave the windows open when you are outside
Smokers are allowed but kindly asked to smoke on balcony (partially covered and equipped for smokers and with direct access from Guest bedroom).
SMOKING IS STRICLY FORBIDDEN AROUND THE FLAT.
There are stricht rules regarding the rules to sort garbage (it is not my wish but is a rule from the Administration of building that follows rules of Milan Townhall), there is a very detailed brochure in the flat that explains in many languages how to sort glass, plastic, paper and food. Please follow the instructions as we receive monthly bills for breaking this rule.
TAKE CARE OF MY HOME AS IF IT WERE YOUR HOME
The place was nice. It's not entire place but only the bedroom. Small one on the photos. Really great location. Food store in the building, underground cross the street, train to the airport nearby.

Niccolo's place is very nice and comfy . It's central in Milano so that's easy to go anywhere to visit . If we are back in Milano we will surely ask for Niccolo's place again !!!
Dear Mehdi, you and your wife really impressed us, it looked like you didn't even stay at the place. Everything was perfect and you really took great care of my place. I really appreciated it and I am thank you once more for being a caring Guest. You are more than welcome to come back and you will be granted of Special Rate for sure.

I chose Niccolo's apartment mainly because I needed a place with a garage in Milan . I stayed there for 2 nights in October. As written before, Niccolo is very nice and helpful. He gave me access to a private parking as we had agreed in advance. He also allowed us to use the kitchen and the whole apartment.
His apartment is furnished with style, but I can not say the same for our room. In the pictures, the room looks much more - spacious than it actually is. When the bed streaches and you put one suitcase on the floor, there is not even a place where to go. But this is not the main problem. The room overlooks the courtyard and is very dark. The only light is a table lamp!!!
Furthermore, happened to be cold weather in October, and in the room was freezing cold at nights. I traveled with my daughter, who is 5 years old and you may imagine how terrified I was that the room has no heating. Niccolo and his mother were very nice and offered us extra blankets, but with no place in the room and freezed, it was nothing for us to do in the nights but to go to bed early.
The atmosphere in the room was particularly bad - dark, cold, and the picture of the funeral on the wall for an ending! Also there were mosquitoes that literally tore us and it was very strange for October! Also strange was the presence of a camera above the kitchen aimed at the front door with a light indicating that it is on !? I hope there was no such in our room! Fortunately, Milan had much to offer and yet we had a very pleasant stay! In no case, however, would not stay there again! Misled by the other persons impressions
Frankly speaking I am quite surprised reading your words, especially after explaining all in details before your check in and giving you all the possible assistance during your stay. But I will go step by step:
- You have been granted of Special Offer discount before your arrival as you asked. I wonder where you could have gone for € 30,00 per person/night in very center of Milan.
- the whole flat has centralized heating, it is very warm. The only problem is that by law in Milan the heating system switches on by October 15th, can't do anything before. I provided you all the blankets I had at home, but never thought you could be freezing.
- As you could have seen from the pictures of the apartment, the Guest Room is very bright and with pale colours, I wonder if you noticed it before booking. The picture that you are mentioning on the wall (funeral??)) it is a famous traditional celebration of Spring corn from North Africa, with bright colors, but I thank you for your consideration, I will think about placing different paintings then :)
- The rooms size is 15 square meters, clearly written in the booking page details.
- Camera: as we explained you the camera is pointing on two very precious frames of flemish painters and it is not recording or anything, it activates if people go very close to the frames. It is obvious that no cameras are present anywhere in the flat!
Thank you anyway for picking up such a tough feedback, especially after you have been taken care also considering you were traveling with your child.
I will consider how to behave next time I am asked for discounts or similar.
Nous avons passé un excellent week-end à Milan ! Accueil chaleureux de la maman de Niccolo et appartement parfait : très bien aménagé, très propre, très agréable, décoration moderne superbe, très bien situé, calme... Bref : nous recommandons sans hésiter ! notre seul regret : ne pas avoir pu partager un "aperitivo" avec Niccolo ! (...il travaille trop !)

I am a professional manager in PR and communications, I am traveling often for work and I look for serious and respectful guests. I am used to host friends at my place in Milan. I am open minded, friendly and usually do everything to make my guests feel comfy and like at home, no matters if are long time friends or fresh acquaintances. I have also a huge villa to rent in the island of Rhodes in Greece... that would be a nice escape! See you soon!
