In 2009 I decided to open a B&B in the apartment next to mine, because I love travelling, meeting new people and the city I live in. I wanted it to be fun, colourful, comfortable and cozy.
Today, I'd like the people who stay here, for just one night or for a week, to feel welcome, as if this were their home away from home.
There's a fully equipped kitchen, stocked with everything you need for a hearty breakfast; there's a big bed with soft mattresses and a selection of pillows to suit all tastes; there's a large shower in a bright bathroom, painted green and purple like the rest of the apartment; there's a TV with satellite channels and free WiFi; there are books that I like and a lot of city guides. And then there's me, "next door", always on hand for anything you need and to advise you on what to do, what to see, where to eat.
I look forward to welcoming you to my and your home!
We are situated at the heart and at the crossroads of the most interesting areas of Milan: Garibaldi, Brera and Isola.
Brera will welcome you with its museums, the wonderful art gallery, its historic streets and its elegant palaces.
The Garibaldi and Isola districts will amaze you with their characteristic houses and Art Nouveau buildings, set alongside the new skyscrapers by famous architects which are changing the face of the city: César Pelli's towers and square, Boeri's vertical forest, Herzog's Feltrinelli building and the Porta Nuova project, formerly Varesine.
Pedestrian streets, classy boutiques, parks, gardens, the brand-new Eataly in Piazza XXV Aprile... You can discover all of these on foot from our B&B, or, alternatively, reach Piazza Duomo in 20 minutes or Parco Sempione with its Castello Sforzesco in 15 minutes.
From Porta Garibaldi railway station (350 meters) overground trains connect to Malpensa Airport, fast underground services to Rho Trade Fair (Expo area) and fast trains to Turin, Bologna, Florence, Rome and Lake Como.
We are 5 minutes from Porta Garibaldi and Moscova underground stations (green line).
And if you're sporty and want to explore more distant neighbourhoods, you can take advantage of the bikes which we have made available to guests.
