My husband and I stayed at Il Girasole for one night. We were able to find the hotel pretty easily but it took some effort to get in to check in. I didn't realize that we were supposed to call ahead and tell the owners when we would be checking in. When we did actually check in, Niccoli was very... More

Overall, this is a great place to stay if you travel off the beaten path! My husband and I passed through Milan on the first night of our honeymoon. Brothers, Nicola and Matteo sent us detailed instructions on how to get from the airport to the hotel before our arrival. This was much needed being our first time to Milan.... More

The hotel or Inn is not located in an agreeable location. First of all, it is located in an area that I didn't feel quite safe. There is a reason the steel door is locked at all times? The rooms are furnished with everything "IKEA", including the beds! Sorry IKEA, but this is not what I would call relaxing. The... More

This small hotel, in an outlying area of Milan, is run by two charming brothers who go to great lengths to make your stay in Milan a pleasure. It is only two blocks from the metro that goes to most of the major sites and to the airport train station, so is actually quite convenient. The rooms are simple, but... More

Any review of Il Girasole will undoubtedly mention the location on Metro Line #1, or the paucity of restaurants in the vicinity, the adequate breakfast buffet, or even the simplicity of the rooms. But the only thing that is relevant is that the proprietor, Matteo, is friendly, helpful and accommodating. He made our two night stay memorable and our visit... More

The reviews we read were so accurate! Matteo and his family make you feel so welcome. Small problem when we gave the address to the taxi driver and we got their but not obviously but Matteo rushed out of the door to meet us when we rang, got us beer and prosecco and the most delightful check in and working...

I use this hotel when I am traveling to Milano. This is one of my favorite hotels. The staff is excellent and also the environment and the atmosphere is like family. From here you are close to the metro if you want to visit Milan and the staff can give you a lot of information's.

The service provided by Matteo was outstanding. Matteo arranged to pick us up from Milano Centrale railway station. Due to roadworks he was not able to meet us at the designated place, Matteo send us an SMS with new directions and following a phone call we were able to be pick up. We had problems at the rail station using... More

We received an extremely warm welcome from brothers Matteo and Nicola at Il Girasole. They are a biker friendly establishment well and truly. Matteo gave us each a beer on arrival and thoroughly went through the places to visit and transport. The room we were in was much larger than expected and even had a mini-kitchenette facility. The breakfast was... More

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, explaining everything about the city. The hotel is basic but fine, everything works and the beds are comfortable. It is a short walk to the subway, which is ideal because driving around town and, especially, parking is problematic. Hotel has parking in an inner... More
