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 pets or any animal be it for therapy or not, is allowed inside the apartment.
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.
No unregistered guests to be added.
Avevo un'ora per trovare un posto a Milano.
Arabella? Precisa, disponibile, perfetta.
La sua casa? ...vorrei non averla lasciata questa mattina....
Very nice apartment. The location is good, it is near the Metro, and only takes about 15 minutes to walk to the train station. Arabella is very nice and friendly, although we didn't meet her, she provided very useful information for us both online and in the apartment.
Nice and cosy place, good location in walking distance to Milano Centrale and Doumo, everything was in a good shape except the apartment heating which somehow didn't function well but it was not so cold anyways and the coffee maker was broken as well, aside from that all was good and the host is a real nice lady as well, met us as promised on time, smooth check in and out.
We set the heating to 21°C during daytime and 18°C at night, but anyone can swich to manual and set the heating as needed.
The coffee maker works, we invite guests to check the instructions in the binder, as there are different options, depending if you use our complimentary capules, or the grinded coffee. You should insert the right piece in the machine. It's easy but you should read which is which, as told in the welcome sheet and specified in the instructions page.
We always invite guests to contact us in case of need, to have all the assistence needed. If you think something is broken, just tell us, it may be , like in this case, that is only a matter of explaining how to use devices. Thank you.
