“Great location, nice staff, could use a refresh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The hotel is very conveniently located near the canal which has great options for going out at night, and is about a 20 minute walk from the Duomo and that area. It's a bit far south for viewing the rest of the city easily, but there is a subway near by, and you can get pretty much anywhere from there. The price is good for what it is, but the hotel is not a luxury hotel in any means - but, clean, and the staff is very friendly. Note - you're not supposed to check in after 2100, and you need to tell them in advance when you're coming, which I didn't do. But the staff was really nice about letting us in - they were very friendly.

Dear Jason
thank You so much for Your stay and nice review.
Thank You so much for having well explained that we are not a 5stars hotel but on top of it that , either, we are not a standard hotel .
Residence House Aramis Milan is a small, nice located in the centre of milan ,very clean aparthotel with serviced studios and apartments with a daily set up and a limited reception time....that is why our reception is by appointment only.
Our Aparthotel born in the '80 and we kept the decor and style of that time .....
we continuosly working on updating our studios and apartments but still we would love to keep this small Aparthotel as it was.
Dear Jason , we hope we can see you again and have the opportunity to show you some newly decorated rooms.
best regards Luigi Giammetta Owner - Residence House Aramis Milan

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Couple in our mid-20’s. Stayed here for 5 nights in a standard double apartment during a 3 week Italian Tour

Good points:

- Informative and friendly greeting from Luigi on arrival who spent a good 20 minutes of his time hand-drafting a key to a map of Milan with attractions, transport and routes.

- Located close to the Navigili area with restaurants/bars and a busy night-time atmosphere

- Great kitchen to prepare easy meals and dining table provided additional space to sit and plan days during evenings/breakfast time

- Spacious and clean room/apartment with free air-con, although we found the orientation of the room meant it was comfortably cool upon afternoon arrival without the air-con which was great!! Also a selection of free wi-fi connections (with good signal)

Bad points:

- The fee paid for city-tax and linen seemed dear – although budgeting this into the cost per-night before arrival will alleviate any surprises

- Downtown location with a lot of graffiti was contrasting to central Milan but DID feel safe (if you can see past the colourful vandalism) and an easy walk (20 mins maximum) to Duomo with amenities on-route

Conclusion:

Comfortable room with friendly staff Luigi and Willy who were prepared to go the extra-mile to accommodate guests. Use the tram or get some comfy shoes on! Look beyond the graffiti of the surrounding area and it is easy to see why this apartment-hotel is so highly regarded. We would return here!

Aramis Residence, besides location, cleanliness, comfort, offers that nice feeling "to feel like home".
Our host, Luigi, helped by Willy, has managed this. He was always careful with us with practical advice for everything (from medical problems to turistic guidances). Thanks to him I learned how tasty is Italian food !

We just returned from Milan yestyerday (2 adults and 2 kids 8 and 4) and we couldn't have stayed in a better place. Fantastic location just 20 mins easy walk(full of shops) from the Duomo (centre) and 2 mins walk from the hip navigli canal area with tons of restaurants. Tons of shops/icecream places and patisseries outside the apartment.The rooms we stayed were really well done in a Tunisian theme and fantastic and comfy..We stayed in a 2 bed room suite with a extra kitchen and living room and the kids loved it.The star of the show is Luigi the owner. Amazingly helpful and couldn't be anymore friendly!!.From giving us the best directions to get to his place, to keeping the a/c on since morning for us so that we walk to cool rooms (was 38 degrees outside), to comp fruits and water and a free room upgrade..late check out..Luigi is a major star. Once we are there..he was very accommodating to all our needs and gave loads of info..advice.Nothing was a problem.And on our final day Luigi happened to be on the same restaurant as ours and he even paid for our meals!! Like he said..just Italian hospitality. I work in travel as a Tour operator but this service was something else..We will definitely go there again and couldn't recommend this place more..

After cycling from Barcelona to Milano we arrived at Residence House Aramis, greeted by Luigi and Willy. They accommodated our needs by providing a safe place to store our two tandems and then proceeded to give us all the information we needed to have a relaxing and enjoyable time in Milano. The location is fantastic (a short walk to the charming canals and a large selection of restaurants) and the room was clean, comfortable and close to public transit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

I stayed for 2 months in this place. It looks nice, it has all the comodities you could want for a longer stay in a city like milano, it's close to the center and to Naviglio (one of the best places to hang out and have a drink at night). All in all it's ok, but the big difference from other places is the owner, Luigi who is one of the greatest hosts i've ever met. He is alway eager to help, friendly, available and full of god advices. I will deffinately go there again even if it is to just say hi!

The location was delightful, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the host/owner made you feel like you were getting the service of a five star. Luigi personally walked us to the door of a comfortable, affordable eating place that offered great homemade Italian cuisine. Thanks for making us feel at home, we tell our friends about warm hospitality.
