The apartment is in a very good location , close to the center of Milano, well served by public transportation , close to restaurants and bars , and in a very safe area .
It is small, with a tiny kitchen that only has a small refrigerator ( no freezer) , no oven ( only microwave ) and no dishwasher, and a bed that is smaller than a queen size .
The linens , pots , pans , dishes and flatware provided are minimal but serve the purpose well.
The furniture is nice and simple and there is plenty of space for everything in two wardrobes and many drawers. There is definitely less storage space in the kitchen and bathroom.
Note that the elevator only reaches the floor below the one where the apartment is located, so it may not work well if you have difficulties climbing stairs .
The characteristics described above make the apartment very nice for a short stay , however I would not recommend it for longer periods .
Javier, the apartment manager , has been excellent, always very kind and very prompt for any question or need we had . He deserves 5 stars .
This apartment is only a short walk from the Duomo and it is exciting to be welcomed home at this Metro stop every evening while climbing the stairs and seeing the Duomo at night. The Reserve Starbucks is also only a short walk away, so starting the day was great.
The central courtyard can be a bit nosey at times. I think that several neighbors are on their phones and talking with open windows while we are sleeping, but this is part of choosing to live in a neighborhood and being one with the Italian experience while we travel. The corner cafe and bar is hopping on Thursday evening, fun, but loud.
There was plenty of storage for our clothes and the bed was comfortable.
I would only suggest to shower in the evenings because when we showered around 8:30, there was not a lot of hot water.
Also, the grout in the tub and shower walls could use a good cleaning or redo. Similar to my bath at home, but I am not renting out my home, or I would be sure that there was no mildew in the grout.
We still would stay at this location again.
