We booked to stay 4 nights in the Garibaldi Apartment in Milan February 2013. Having booked almost 9 months in advance we secured a very good rate of around 125 Euro per night. We arrived into Milan early morning on day one. From here we took a shuttle bus to Central Station (10 Euro pp) then a taxi to the "Hotel Solutions" office who manage the apartments. As our apartment was not yet vacated they took care of our luggage until 2pm.
We came back at 2pm and someone walked us the 10 minutes to the apartment. This was a bit of a pain with all our luggage, and despite the offer that they would drop the luggage at the apartment for us they didn't, and they didn't even offer to carry a bag on the walk.
None of that mattered as soon as we walked into the apartment. On a quiet street about 5 minutes walk from Moscova station, with a good variety of local restaurants the location is fantastic. About a 10 minute walk and you will be at Duomo. The apartment is a loft style, bright, yet fantastically heated for the winter. The first thing you notice when walking in is the glass floor of the bedroom above the dining/lounge area. Lots of windows provide plenty of natural light.
The apartment has everything you need. Free pay tv. Very fast and free Internet. A fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. The bed is very comfy (one suggestion would be a couple more pillows) Plenty of space for two people. Fantastic location, I don't think anywhere would beat it. Lots of supermarkets in the area plus the great little kitchen meant we cooked up a storm each night.
Keep in mind it is not a serviced apartment. That suited us fine. It made it feel even more like a home away from home. Forget a hotel this bets them hands down.
