“Far better than a hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We recently stayed four nights in this apartment and it really made our trip great. The location is very convenient with about a 5-10 min walk to two different metro lines. From the apt you can walk about 20 min or less and be standing in front of the Duomo. It is very well located to a number of nice restaurants and two small supermarkets. The apartment itself was very clean with more than enough room for you to spread out and relax. It has a small fridge and even a washer if you've been on a long trip or packed lightly. During our stay they even cleaned the unit and changed the linens one day which I was not expecting. It does require a bit of coordination with the company but the apt. representative was waiting for us at the unit when our cab arrived. You cant beat the location, price and comfort in the center of Milan.

We stayed in the Garibaldi Apartment, which is in a quiet street off the Corso Garibaldi which is a great shopping and eating street, really close to all the places you want to go in Milan. We went on a number of tours with Zani Viaggi and this apartment was in walking dstance of the Foro Bonaparte where Zani Viaggi is located.

The apartment had a loft bedroom which was charming, but the spiral staircase would be an issue if you had difficulty with stairs. There was a fully equipped kitchen and a washing machine (we dried the clothes on the spiral staircase railings for which there were helpfully provided pegs!). The apartment was bright and modern with an air conditioner in the living room and one in the loft bedroom, we were there in summer and very much appreciated these. There is an elevator from the ground floor to the apartment.

We arrived in Milan early in the day and could leave our bags in the office, which is some way from the apartment. The staff were very friendly and took our bags to the apartment for us. They also walked with us and explained all the workings of the apartment. Just around the corner in Corso Garibaldi was a great restaurant "Tastari" which we would very much recommend.

We loved Brera apartments. If you are staying in Milan we would highly recommend it. What better than to stay in a local neighbourhood with great living space just a few stops on the metro from the city centre. The staff are brilliant and very helpful, showing us around when we got there, providing a city map, giving us tips and a tour of the apartment. The kitchen facilities are great - loved the nespresso machine in the morning as we made coffee and popped to a local bakery for pastries. It really is a home from home and very stylish. Wi-fi is a must for us and the wi-fi was brilliant - never had a problem and very fast connection. It was a shame we only stayed the one night - we would come back again and stay longer!

We loved having a complete apartment for the price of a hotel room. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped with a great espresso machine. Good location, between two subway stops and the surrounding neighborhood was nice. There is a cute cafe about two doors down where we had espresso on a rainy afternoon. We travel to Milan fairly often and would stay at Brera again. The only complaint we had was the noise from the bar downstairs and we wish it had a washing machine.

The hotel located in a quite street and neighborhood. The room is spacious and enough for me, my wife and my two children. The design is minimalist and simple. It has complete facility for family except clothes washing machine. The white color of all interior ensure us the cleanliness. It is only 3 minutes walk from subway station and to mini market. There area also some restaurant and shop surrounding this apartment. Make sure you contact the management first to arrange the key before you come.

Stayed at apartment garibaldi near corso como a few weeks ago and could not have asked for a nicer and more modern apartment. Newly renovated with stylish kitchen, large bathroom and new plasma tvs, this split level apartment is perfect for 4 people. Location is amazing, with great restaraunts and shops surrounding this apartment. Brera is a great neighborhood and would definitely stay here again next time in Milan.
