Quite and basic flat, just a couple of minutes away from the city center. Near to the train station. After midnight, however, harder to get back and a taxi is needed.
I was so happy that Riccardo is updating his availability well. I have tried 5-6 other hosts in Milano beforehand. Riccardo welcomed my request promptly, he gave directions which were quite clear. I arrived abit later, but he was flexible and in fact we only met when I arrived, but it was not an issue at all and he texted me during my stay if all is ok. Unfortunately the room looks nicer on the picture than in reality and therefore I give a lower rating. Some maintenance would worth in the flat.
The flat is quite large with interesting architectural features. The location could not be closer to the railway station. There is a clothing manufacturer's factory outlet near by, which is well worth checking out. The area is quiet and well served by trams.
I recommend that travellers to Milan take the time to familiarise themselves with the metro and sub-urban train system. Maps are available on-line. Having printed colour copies would be very useful. A two day pass represents exceptional value for money. Buy the ticket from a machine.
I found a walk around the area surrounding Garribaldi station very interesting. It is only one train stop away from Ricardo's flat.
Riccardo is an exceptional host. He is very knowlegable and could not be more helpful. Life is pretty tough for young people in Italy right now. He shows great entrepreneural spirit in the way he balances his work and the letting of his flat. He is a person I am glad to have met.
Riccardo provides a very spacious room and apartment. My stay was comfortable and convenient - the fast internet connection was a plus as I had work to do. If you are accustomed to walking, it is quite easy to get to from the main train station as well as the city center. Riccardo is very personable and fun to chat with!
All in all an enjoyable time at Riccardo's. It was really easy to arrive since Riccardo gave me detailed instructions on how to find the apartment.
The room was very cool, the bed was good and the Wi-Fi worked perfectly.
The place is close to a train station, and from there it's only 5 minutes and then you are in the heart of Milan.
Riccardo was a nice host, but unfortunately we didn't find much time to hang out since we both had to work a lot.
very nice house, cozy and big room, super friendly area and perfectly connected to the rest of the city. Riccardo and his roommate are friendly and warm, always there for a favour or to help. definitely a very good experience.
la casa è carinissima, la stanza grande e accogliente e Riccardo ed il suo coinquilino sono gentilissimi, amichevoli e piacevoli. consigliato caldamente.
I had a very nice time staying at Riccardo's place while I was in Milan. The room is spacious and clean. The apartment is close to public transportations, so it was very easy to get in and out the city.
I had a very early flight to go home, and Riccardo helped me figure out the best way to get to the airport. And it was easy and cheapest way to get to the airport!
Also the cat Domingo is super cute and funny. I enjoyed his company as well. I highly recommend staying at this place!
Ricardo is very friendly and helpful. The home location is great, very well connected to the city center. Carrefour supermarket is 2 tram stops away. The only disadvantage were mosquitoes, I was bitten by them a couple of times.
The room was clean and sunny, the people in the apartment very nice and the connection to public transport excellent.. what more could anyone ask of a flat in Milano! I hope they're still around when I come back.
On a more personal note I can recommend Riccardo to you as a conscientious host who seems to have a lot of experience in getting his visitors organized and set up ;).
I had a great time at Riccardo's place.
The flat is in a good location. Public transport is great (Suburban trains,trams,buses and tube are all close).
The room's light and big.
Riccardo and his flatmates are very friendly and unbelievably helpful.
They are also very flexible and respect the guest's privacy and needs.
Shouldn't forget about Domingo, one of the funniest cat I've seen.
In a nutshell, recommended.
