“Wonderful Island of Tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Porta Garibaldi is your own apartment while you visit Milan. As others have written, Alessandra is a terrific hostess, furnishing you with guidebooks, stocked refrigerator, and tasty pastries. She was very helpful with suggestions for getting around - Milan is an easy city to navigate with the Metro and reasonably priced taxis.

The soft bed and pillows were especially welcomed after staying in places lacking these comforts. Highly recommend Porta Garibaldi, it is priced very affordably, especially given its proximity to the main historic area.

The apartment was clean and modern, food was fresh (Alessandra fills the fridge and you make your own breakfast), and location was great.
Alessandra was very helpful - she went out of her way to assist us and also gave us a great recommendation of which area to walk around on our only day in Milan.

After travelling from Venice to Milan, the change from staying in a traditionally decorated B&B to this clean, beautiful, modern apartment in the thriving, business city of Milan was a fun variation. Alessandra's is a most charming and welcoming host. She is as vibrant as the colors in her apartment and is only too happy to help with whatever you may need. In fact she did such a good job of setting us up upon our arrival, that we had no other questions to ask her throughout our 2 night stay! The kitchen was well stocked with a variety of breakfast foods and it was nice to be able to eat when we wanted in our own room. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go and it was a short taxi ride to the train station. We were more than pleased with our stay there and know you will not be disappointed if you stay here!!

Even though it was August, and our host was on holiday, we were welcomed and cared for at Porta Garibaldi B&B. This is a beautifully decorated, relaxing apartment had everything we needed to enjoy our time in Milan, including a well stocked kitchen. We used Alessandra's bikes to quickly get to the city center and other parts of the city. She also has city maps, restaurant recommendations, and other information on hand. The apartment is near train and metro stations, with good restaurants nearby. We were in town for a conference, and it was nice to be away from the big hotels, and experience a more authentic Milan. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at this apartment the second week in June. Alessandra made us feel welcomed from the minute we arrived. The apartment was very clean and stylish. She gave us a list of places within 3 to 4 blocks for dining. Each one was a fabulous experience with excellent Milanese foods! The location to the Duomo and fashion district can't be beat. It is located in a very safe area of Milan and only a 12 minute walk to the Porta Garibaldi station. I have recommended this apartment to several of my friends who will be traveling to Milan. If it is available, book it...NOW!

What a fantastic place to stay at. Alessandra who is a the owner of this charming and spotless studio is a very nice hostess. The flat is very cute, nicely decorated and extremely clean. Her home made pastry are delicious. The studio is located in the very nice and trendy Brera - Garibaldi area not far from the Duomo (20 minutes by foot or few minutes by tram). We highly recommend this place for those who are looking for a self-catered studio in a lovely and quiet location where breakfast, lovely pastries, fruits and drinks are available for guests.

Many thanks Alessandra for making this place so special.

Room Tip: Cosy, very clean and nicely decorated studio for 2. Beautiful bathroom with shower.

From the very first contact with Alessandra, we knew this place would be a good experience. And it was! The apartment is really well set-up with all the staples you could possibly need and some lovely extras that give it a really personal touch. The kitchen is well stocked for breakfast and more, and on the street level of the building is a small supermarket, so you also have the option to stay in & cook dinner, which we did once or twice, or explore the many eateries just around the corner in Corso Como. The location was fantastic: close enough to comfortably walk along some great streets to most of the major attractions during the day (with the added bonus of having the Metro close by if you wanted a quick trip home), and far enough away to feel like one of the locals, and really experience Milano living. The convenient train trip to the Airport made our departure stress-free. Alessandra was always available for suggestions and a hello, but never intrusive, so she felt more like a neighbour than a landlord. We could have lingered here much longer, and certainly will stay here next time we are in Milano.
