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

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.

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

This was our first trip without a group, so we were slightly worried we would have trouble navigating our way around Milan . The two owners, were so helpful and patient with our questions. The room was bright and clean. The subway is close and easy to navigate. When we left Nicola gave me an ice pack for my strained... More

This hotel appartment is only 10 minutes from Milano Duomo by Metro train. The room was clean and nice decorated. The host (2 brothers) was simply fantastic. Helping to point out the right areas for shopping and restaurants.

The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the main subway line. The room was impeccably clean and very functional. We appreciated very much the help of the owners of the hotel who were exceptionally friendly and provided all the information we needed. When we come to Milano one more time, we will choose Girasole again!

Il Girasole is delightful hotel to stay at. The rooms are a good size, very clean with lovely decor. Nicola was there when we had our stay at the beginning of August and he could not have been more helpful. His warm greeting and friendly demeanour are a pleasure to experience and I would recommend a stay there.
