My family and I stayed there after vising Germany and Venice. We only stayed 2 days, as we were only flying out of Milan, and yet, my entire family wished we could have stayed at this hotel during our entire vacation. It was a little hard to find, granted, the hotel is in a courtyard and not visible from the road, but once inside, you could not ask for a home away from home. It was better than we ever imagined! There is a comfortable living room, with a dog, in which to enjoy a cool drink and some fantastic comany (and a dog). The rooms were unique and very homey while the common rooms bred discussions with others staying in this wonderful hotel. After our stay, we had to leave at 3 o'clock in the morning to make our flight. Once Maira (at the hotel) knew, she told us she would meet us to let us out and reset security. We got up, and met in the living room to check out (at the crack of dawn) and leave, and Maria met us with Capacinos and breakfast bags including all all my kid's favorites! All they could talk about (instead of nagging about waking up so early) was how awesome Maria and the hotel was. I could not recommend them enough!
