We had a room with a double bedroom called Food on the top floor. The room was nicely decorated and very very clean! It's actually the first thing that I noticed at this B&B - super clean, smells fresh! The owners are really friendly and helpful! They gave us tips where we should visit, the best restaurant areas and nightlife. Breakfast is simple but fresh daily; juices and fresh coffee were available together with jam cake, fresh patisserie, tasty chocolate cake (on Sunday), baguette with fresh cheese & salami, natural yogurt, granola and fruits. Biscuits and teas were available also during the day in the breakfast area. Some uncomfortable situations where in our room 'Food' top floor: 1) TV is very small compared to the majority of the rooms nowadays, however since we were out all day it wasn't a big issue. 2) The shower room could use a little upgrade as we had no shelf in the shower to put shower gel/products nor a place where we could hang our loofahs to drop water and the shower door is fabric and very brittle. We had to be extra careful. As for complimentary toiletries, this B&B will provide 2 small soaps, 2 sachets shower gel (will serve 1 person only) and 2 sachets shampoo (will serve for 1 person only). Room cleaning is done daily and you will always find new toiletries however you might need to ask for more if you are 2 persons in the room. Maybe a simple solution for this B&B would be to install shower gel dispensers in the showers and provide little lotion bottles instead of shower gel sachets. A blow dryer was provider in the shower room (not a powerful hair dryer) and clean towels were provided daily! We also asked for 2 extra pillows as they were too flat for our taste and the owners provided extra 2 immediately. Room had AC and worked perfectly! Overall we are happy with the friendly B&B as it's close to the metro, easy to visit Milan and in a safe area. Thanks to the owners for the lovely stay!…
Il Girasole is a friendly family run B&B. As soon as we arrived Matteo sat us upon arrival to offer us drinks and snacks. His attention to us was first class, a service with a personal touch. Matteo gave us a map and highlighted all that was worth checking out on our brief visit. Breakfast was yummy with these delicious croissants. Nicola and Matteo are great hosts and are attentive to client’s needs. The hotel was clean and well equipped. The location close to the metro so very convenient. It certainly lived up to the reviews. The room was great and nicely furnished. My friend said that she would go back to Milan just to stay here lol.
A budget friendly hotel just outside the main city centre. A couple of minutes walk will have you at the metro which is easy to get around on. This family run hotel is clean warm and very relaxing, Matteo is such a fantastic host and does Italy proud in what he does. I was on a visit to Milan for a Radiohead concert with my partner and this hotel provided us with the perfect base for the weekend in Milan, Matteo gave a map and basically highlighted all that was worth checking out on our brief visit, It worked out perfect. We've promised to come back to have a more comprehensive tour of the city and we already know where we are gonna stay.
This is definitely a unique, quaint little hotel, situated in a high rise residential neighborhood in the northern part of Milan, One could easily bypass the rust-covered facade on the street with very little to identify that a hotel is located there, save for the sunflower motif on the wall (Il Girasole is Italian for the Sunflower). The hotel is a family-run enterprise, with the brothers Nicola and Matteo doing most of the work. It seems that the hotel is a converted bicycle factory, and there are pictures on the wall showing the very impressive conversion to a hotel over the past 20 years or so. Matteo set me down at arrival and ran me though the entire setting of Milan. Very helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet, albeit a bit cramped for a twin bed setup. The breakfast was adequate, although not spectacular. While I did not take advantage of the nearby metro, I am told that it is only 20 minutes to downtown. A daily metro ticket costs about 4.5 Euro. Restaurant options in the neighborhood are a bit limited, with sometimes unpredictable hours (especially on Sunday). I would think the best food strategy would be to eat downtown for lunch and dinner, or perhaps take advantage of one of the numerous "happy hour" places downtown, which I am told have very substantial offerings for a reasonable price. I think the best thing about the hotel is the personal service that Matteo and Nicola render. It was very helpful to me, being a first time visitor to Milan. I'd definitely consider staying here again.…
This small boutique hotel has many attributes including the welcoming owner, just 3 min walk from the underground (then 20 mins to Cathedral), a great triple room which has a separate alcove for our teenager and a generally comfortable/clean room. It was a little difficult to find and if driving I would recommend booking a parking place (there are only about 4) as otherwise you are looking for on street parking. The only other small concern which means Il Girasole fell short of excellent was the slightly delayed, but very nice breakfast which was a little frustrating as we were heading south on a busy Saturday.
