My friend and I stayed 3 nights in this lovely apartment a 10 minute walk from the QT8 metro stop. This meant that a 10 minute ride on the red line took us to central Milan and the Duomo. The price of £79 per night was great value for a 2 double bedroom apartment.
Valeria the owner met us at the apartment, spent some time showing us round and explaining everything necessary and had kindly provided some snacks and a bottle of wine. She was very helpful, ringing to book a taxi 2 days after our arrival (when we contacted her to say we were having trouble) to collect us on our last day.
It was clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen, in which Valeria had also provided useful items such as coffee, teabags, olive oil, condiments, napkins, kitchen towel etc.. There were plenty of towels, spare pillows in cupboards and a basket of toiletries in the bathroom which although small was perfectly adequate with a good shower. 1 double bedroom was a little small but had a comfortable firm bed, the other also with a firm mattress but more spacious with several wardrobes and a light/ceiling fan which was much appreciated as the weather was hot and humid until our last day. There was also air conditioning but we did not need to switch it on as the apartment was very cool.
The open plan area with seating, dining table and chairs and kitchen was stylish and light and airy. There were blinds at all windows and the bedrooms and open plan living area had the continental shutters.
An important factor for 2 women travelling abroad is security and this was excellent with an outer lockable gate to the block of apartments, a further lockable door to the building, a secure lock on the apartment door and barred windows.
There was a large IPER supermarket, eateries and shops but this centre was about a 15 minute walk away. Those with a car would be fine. We ate twice in an excellent self service restaurant there which was great value, a huge choice of food (great for me as a vegetarian) and a high standard.
Valerie came on our last day to return my 100 euro deposit and to see us safely in to the taxi, having checked the price with the driver.
Overall you couldn't find a nicer owner or nicer place that was so central while at the same time being in a quite and safe residential area.
Great vale and highly recommended.
