My husband found this place and wanted to try it, and we're not sorry we did. We were there early and not many people around, but I didn't mind that. We both got bruschetta to start with and it was yummy. For mains my husband got the fillet steak and I got the calzone, i always wanted to try it.... More

After a disaster stay in Paris - we arrived in Milan in what was a single night stopover while we headed to see our family in Veneto. I searched all over Milan for hotels that would accommodate both my family of four (two kids aged 7 and 10) and my elderly parents as well as our budget. We've been to... More

Very good location of the hotel. The "stuff" is very kind and helpfull. Only the shower was tricky (as in most of the Italian hotels I've stay for this trip) and the lighting is kind of low (but it's not a big deal since I used the room only for sleeping). It's a very good place to stay for a... More

We have stayed at this small hotel for four nights and truly enjoyed the cosy homely atmosphere of it. It's run by two brothers who love what they do and love their city. They have recommended us good restaurants nearby, suggested places to see, helped explaining the public transport system. The room was spacious and nice, simple, but it had... More

At the Girasole, we feel like home. I arrived early morning, and I was greeted by Matteo with cappuccino and croissant. The room was ready early, and very clean and welcoming (small bag with water and crisps on the table). I definitely recommand this place. It's 5 minutes walk from the metro station San Giovanni (not in the city centre,... More

The hotel is lovely. The location is good, just 2 blocks form a metro station, so it was very easy to come and go everywhere. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. And the hosts Nicola and Matteo were simply great! They made us feel at home and gave us lots of wonderful tips about Milan. Thanks a lot!... More

I discovered the existence of this hotel by searching one close to the so called "Bicocca" neighborhood, where I had to go for business reasons (but its location, a short walk from the "Villa San Giovanni" metro station, makes it very practical also for tourism stays in Milan). The hotel is in a decent neighborhood in the suburbs, in a... More

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
