Hi 'm Alessio and I work in television and new media and I'm responsible for content and production for Mtv italy.
What an interesting home! It was filled with awesome art and eccentric posters and figurines. It was like a museum.. We had so much of fun! Was Sucha shame we cldnt meet the cool man(Alessio) himself during our stay.
Ok besides that.... Check in and out was (website hidden) comm with host. Location perfect with a 10min walk to both central stn or nearest metro.
Supermarket down the road and there are bars/cafés around tho not many.
Apt was given in satisfactory condition on check in.
Pls note that the host stays in the apt-when not rented out as all his belongings are left back. Beds were gd. Rooms big enuff with cool stuff on the wall!
I wasn't a big fan of the cramp small bAthroom but it was clean.
I will recommend for low budget trAvellers, backpackers and those who need simple comfortable night caps.
You do get what you pay for.
Pls imptly water the plants for the host. It's a beautiful terrace - it's kinda relaxing to do that task-so i din mind!
We liked it and had a gd stay :)
Ce logement est vraiment bien placé, près des transports et des communs et des magasins de proximité : la cuisine est d'ailleurs très bien outillée et la terrasse c'est vraiment top. Par contre le mauvais état de la robinetterie du lavabo bloquée nous a obligé à nous laver les dents dans la baignoire, ce n'est pas très pratique, et le frigidaire était plein de restes y compris une assiette sale avec un morceau de gâteau... Ça manquait un peu de disponibilité pour ranger nos affaires mais on peut faire avec.
Bref un petit rajeunissement de la plomberie et une meilleure gestion du nettoyage rendra cet appartement excellent.
Very nice and warm house!
Haha, but the house is not tidy as the picture show, as this house is use to live by the host. Also, because this, you can have anything you need in this "real" home! CIAO !
We met Alessio briefly in front of the apartment to hand over the keys. We found the apartment much like as shown in the photos. Everything was perfect for our overnight stay.
We arrived from Milano Centrale and had a bit of trouble getting to the place at first - but eventually found our way! It's actually pretty convenient from the train station. We met Carlos who helped checked us in. The apartment was very cozy and beautifully decorated - really like the paintings and quirky art stuff! it was perfect for a group of 4 and we enjoyed our stay there. Only tricky thing is the water heater - remember to turn it on some time before you take your bath or it will be freezing cold! Other than that, the apartment's great and Alessio is very responsive on emails as well. Would recommend for anyone passing through milan! :)
Very conveniently located in Milano and we had no problems finding the place!
Nice apartment but looks more cluttered than shown in the pictures + heater takes hours to boil (we ended up not bathing as it was too cold). Alessio did mention that the heater will take a while to boil so do note on that (best to switch it on before going out touring so you can have a nice hot bath when you are back)... Interesting décor around and great garden! thanks for hosting us :)
Lovely decorated apartment close to the main station which is perfect if you travel by train. We stayed there for one night and enjoyed it. Alessio was very welcoming although he was a bit in a hurry. I can recommend this place.
The place is very convenient next to the train station, and decorated with taste.
Already for the second time, our stay in Alessios apartment was very pleasant and a bit like coming back to a friends house. I already looked forward to see all the funny and inspiring pictures on the walls. Alessio has created a very cheering atmosphere with simple and creative means. The balcony for the morning sun and the terrace for the afternoon/evening sun is another asset that comes into play if the weather is sunny, like it was all last week! Alessio (email hidden), everything was like he said. He was helping us out one night with a great restaurant tip via sms and welcomed us on our arrival with a nice coffee on the terrace. We highly recommend this apartment.
Alessio's apartment is obsolutely beautiful and comfortable! It is very tastefully decorated with every little detail. The terrace is very beautiful, full of lovely plants. It was a pity I didn't meet Alessio in person, but his friend Carlos helped with my arrival and he was very nice and helpful. The location is quite ideal, close to several metro stations and the central train station, so it was very easy for me to go around the city. I would definitely try to come back if I will be in Milan again!
