Il Girasole is a small hotel with bed & breakfast style accommodations located in a quiet residential neighborhood a short walk from a stop on the main Metro line of Milan. Mateo and Nicola are the perfect hosts, they are always smiling and always ready to help with any information or assistance that would make our stay easier. They are...

Being very honest, when I first saw the reviews and photos about Il Girasole I was doubting it would be that good. It didn't seem right. My expectations started to change when a couple of days before my trip I received a very kind email from Nicola and MAteo (brothers and owners of the place) confirming my booking and giving...

If you're looking for a clean basic hotel a bit from the city centre in a quiet area with super helpful and friendly hosts - this is the place. Our room was indeed very basic and simple - but everything that you need is there - when in Milan you don't want to spend time in a room anyway -...

We passed through Milan on our way to Switzerland on our Honeymoon. Nicola and Matteo were the perfect hosts. They were friendly, accommodating and offered excellent service. We stayed in a superior room, detached from the main building, had Prosecco and snacks delivered as a honeymoon treat. Room was big and clean with quirky design features. It takes a quick...

Warning!!!This hotel is 8km from the old city in Milan. Extremely overpriced for what you get. I am extremely dubious as to how this hotel got it's rank on tripadvisor! Something is not right here. Room basic & clean. Service ok but manager does disappear at night and is uncontactable in mid to late evening. Extremely noisy from about 6am...

A clean, traveller-friendly place to stay when visiting Milan. The owners Of this renovated bicycle parts factory could not be nicer and the rooms while basic are very clean and and quiet. Its a little difficult to find by car but a super easy metro ride to the center of the city. Parking is available in an inner courtyard which...

First and foremost STAY HERE. I have never had a hotel email me personally before my stay to check on how I want the bedrooms arranged! The service just got better when we arrived.

We stayed at Il Girasole for 2 nights, in a bright and cheerful triple room. The room was very spacious, with a separate room for the single bed. The building was clean and airy, and had a neat hidden patio. Air conditioning worked great, and we really needed it. The breakfast was great. The best part was the host --...
