Interaction with Guests
If my working schedule permits, I'll be happy to welcome my guests personally. I live in the neighbourhood, but I am a flight attendant, so I may be away for some days. In this case my husband or our Personal Consierge will be there waiting for you. I will anyway keep in touch with my guests by mail and will also be reacheable by phone. Check-in and check-out time is 14.00 (2 p.m.) and 12.00 (midday), but unless we have very close departure/arrival, we'll welcome you as soon as you're in town and we'll let you stay until you'd like to on the day of departure.
A nice walk takes you to Duomo. There is plenty of restaurants all around the apartment, small and big supermarkets, including an Organic Food one, bakery, bank, 24hrs cash withdrawal, take-away pizza, laundry, tobaccos, newspapers, Corso Buenos Aires shopping street. You may walk to famous via della Spiga fashion shops. You may do jogging in Porta Venezia gardens, 1 min. from home, or swim at the Cozzi swimmingpool (7 € entry fee), a 33mt long, 1930s renovated monument.
The apartment is located in via Panfilo CASTALDI 30, near Porta Venezia. The area is one of the better served by public transport in Milan. The underground Porta Venezia stop is one minute walk away and takes you to Duomo in 5 minutes (3 stops) if you don't want to take a nice walk through corso Venezia and pedestrian corso Vittorio Emanuele. The same line (the red one, number 1) also reaches FIERA MILANO-RHO. Malpensa, Linate and Orio al Serio airports are very easy to reach too.
I chose this location to be at easy reach from all airports and from Centrale station.
Other Things to Note
I'm not sure there's a better place where to stay in Milan without having a car.
In the apartment you'll find soap, detergents for houshold use, as well as coffee, sugar, salt, olive oil. You'll only have to buy those items which run out during your stay, to make sure every guest will find all what is needed in the house without having to buy everything.

No parties and no drugs are allowed in the apartment.
Please be respecful of the neighbours by not keeping the music aloud or by avoid loud noises at night time.

I have to say from the moment I saw Arabella ad on airbnb. I thought that's a good location and it was nice. It was even better than I thought. From the moment I booked it. Arabella reply back promptly and was so accommodating. I felt like I was visiting a old friend in Milan. She met us at her place and chatted with us. She gave us suggestions on places to go and things to do.
She even had a binder she made with places to go and good restaurants in the area. I have to say all the restaurant we tried from her list were excellent. She even emailed me later that evening with details about questions I asked when we met her for the keys. I didn't have a cell phone(thankfully she had fast wifi ) she even offered to make reservations for us. Like I said it felt like I was visiting an old friend. We loved her place! It was clean and cozy! It had everything you needed. Plus the location was convenient to everything. I wish all my airbnb experiences were this amazing. If your looking for a place to stay in Milan, look no further. I've never written such a long review but I thought she deserved it. Thank you Arabella for saving my Milan experience!
Arabella ist nett und hilfsbereit. Ihr Appartement ist sehr gemütlich und sauber, wenn auch etwas teuer. Sie kennt gute Restauranttipps und auch sonst kann sie bei jeder Frage über Mailand weiterhelfen. Ich war super zufrieden;)
