I'm from Milano, Italy and I work in fashion.
It's a very nice apartment, and both Sara and her husband are very attentive and helpful hosts, with the house and with any issues related to the city, such as transport (tram, metro, they even gave us a full timetable of trains to Torino as we didn't have a laptop), places to visit, ideas... The place is clean, tidy and bright, and really close to a tram stop, and only 5 minutes away to the Stazione Centrale via public transport. The neighbourhood is quiet and there is a delicious pizza place just around the corner. Everything is fine!! Whenever we return to Milano, we are going back to Sara and Simone's place, for sure.
Excellent accommodation will return a third time.
Simone e Sara hanno un bellissimo sorriso,
Sono molto accoglienti e rispettosi degli ospiti.
Lo spazio riservato ha ingresso autonomo e ti fa sentire tuo lo spazio.
Le lenzuola sono Pulite e profumate, come del resto il bagno.
Questa mansarda è attrezzato di due letti divisi un poco provvisori ma molto comodi.
La metro è a dieci minuti, il quartiere è silenzioso.
My friend and I stayed 2 nights in Milan at Sara's place at the very end of last year, December 2010. The place is great as are Sara, her husband Simone, and their baby Mia. It's fairly close to the central train station (Stazione Centrale) in a quiet residential area and everything is in good shape. Sara and Simone could not be more helpful, organized, and accommodating for anything one might need from use of their kitchen to WiFi . I would just note a couple of things for travelers: the place is on the top floor and there is no elevator in the building. Also, the room is in the attic, meaning the pitched roof ceiling slopes in a bit, so you have to be a bit careful not to hit your head. Lastly, the interior stair between the main apartment and this room with bathroom is narrow and has no banister/railing. None of these things were problems for us but I figured I should note them for some taller people or older people with balance issues. (You could avoid the narrow interior stair altogether, however, and just access the room from the main building stairwell.) I would definitely stay there again if I went to Milan as well as recommend it to any friends headed there.
Sara was an amazing guest. Perfect in every way. Left things clean and tidy. Very easy to communicate with; welcome back anytime!
