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.... More

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... More

Dear guest , thanks for your kind words, sorry you missed the milk: we don't put it with the kettle not to leave it at room temperature. We will be glad to provide milk upon request as we do not use UHT milk. More

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.
