I was here two years ago and wrote I'd be back...and back I was! It was october, two days for Expo, a friend with me. The room - twin beds - is almost elegant, it has everything you need: kettle and so on. The owners are a mine of informations, very helpful and practical. Breakfast in their dining room, very...

We stayed 3 nights in this great place in Milan, long enough to see the wonderful sights of the city and enjoy a quiet, comfortable room. Outside of the center in a residential neighborhood, but with easy access to the center, we had our own entrance and a great breakfast every morning. Beatrice was everything one could want in a...

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast on the outskirts of Milan. Peaceful neighborhood, away from all the crowds, with easy access to the city sights. Cozy room with a delightful host. Definitely worth a stay if traveling to Milan.

We spent three nights here and really enjoyed our stay. Beatrice was so friendly and helpful and provided us with a delicious breakfast every morning including one at 0700 so we could leave in good time to catch our early train. The room was spacious and had everything we needed. The separate entrance meant we could come and go without...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to book again if going to Milan. We didn't get off to a great start as we struggled to find it. Our fault - we were relying on the sat-nav and this wasn't on it. We should have printed off a map of the area. Via Ozieri is a small private...

Spent 2 days May 2015. Spacious room, great breakfast and Beatrice extremely helpful and knowledgable of the local area. Trams and metro within 5 minutes on foot.Central location with Duomo a short tram ride away. The room is also accessible by elevator which was a bonus as we had 2 very heavy suitcases after a lengthy cruise. Would not hesitate...

The apartment is in a cul de sac in a respectable area of Milan so it's quiet and we felt perfectly safe walking to the tram stop, and on the tram. It's about a 15 minute ride to the Duomo, there were trams every few minutes. The apartment is comfortable and the owner is friendly and helpful with good English....

Althea is a wonderful place to spend a few days in Milan. A bit like staying with friends. The rooms and bathrooms are immaculate and very homely. Beatrice has a way of knowing how to answer all your requests and makes you feel very much at home. A wonderful way to experience Milan as a Milnese.

I can only echo what the other reviews say. The place is great. The bedroom and restroom are immaculately clean and very comfortable. Beatrice even provided a little toddler bed for our 2-year-old. Beatrice was incredibly friendly and accommodating. My only gripe would be that it's not within easy walking distance of most of the sites in Milan. I think...

“It is not the easiest to find. When on the right street find the building labelled '3' on the left hand side (building before the one covered in wisteria) and then one is labelled 'althea' rather than a surname, so buzz that.”
