We stayed one night at Althea while in Milan visiting my sister (who conveniently lives around the corner from the B&B). What a gem this place is! Beatrice is such a wonderful hostess, so friendly and kind. She also has a sweet dachshund, Ned, who is very friendly. The room is spacious, bright and cozy. Great bed and sheets. The... More

Wonderful B&B. The location is good, in a quite area not far away (and easily accessible by public transportation) from the city center, really close to Porta Garibaldi station. You will feel at home, so cozy, so well taken care of, it is a jewel in Milan. The breakfast is excellent and I've had the best fresh fruit salad I've... More

We spent a night here and were glad we chose this B&B on the last stop of our two-week road trip. Beatrice's lovely abode is located in a residential area away from the hustle and bustle of touristy Milan. We had a car but chose to leave it in the parking lot and explored the city by bus which is... More

BB Althea is a calm, very nice and relaxed place closed to the heart of Milan. We enjoyed our stay (three days) very much. Beatrice gave us a lot of good advices to discover Milan, to find good restaurants etc. To stay in her beautiful house was a great pleasure.

The best thing about this B&B is the owner, Beatrice. She was helpful from the first e-mail I sent to the entire week we stayed in her lovely facility. It's rather like renting a small apartment than a B&B, but her breakfasts were great (thanks for the decaf) and she was so helpful with maps, directions, and just nice conversation.... More

We have just returned from a trip to Italy during which we stayed at Beatrice's accommodation. To say it is a "B&B" would be an injustice - it was like a small apartment with a large bedroom, en-suite bathroom and charming sitting room. Independent access was a bonus. It is very tastefully decorated and has provisions for making drinks (with... More

just come back from a three nights stay at Althea with an American friend. An Italian colleague had suggested we'd be happy there, and we were! Hot weather in Milan, but well working air conditioning. Quiet, nicely decorated and well equipped room. Very good italian breakfast: fresh bread, homemade jam, fresh fruit...and the owners so helpful with everything we asked... More
