I and my two grown up sons travelled to Milan for St. Patrick's wkend. i had heard very bad reviews about the budget hotels in Milan and chose to book an apartment through Holiday Lettings as i have previously booked with them before and had a wonderful experience.
the apartment was everything and more that we had hoped. in a quiet courtyard off a main street, a few hundred yards from Loretto metro. Stephano and his wife were absolutely lovely hosts. The apartment was ultra modern, spotless clean, everything you would need. my sons were very pleased with the free Wi Fi. We had two bedrooms and the beds to sleep in were to die for. Esp the double bedroom. We had heating as needed, hot water, shower was lovely. If the weather had been warmer the very large patio would have been very welcomed. There was also a lift in the building as the apt was on the second floor.
it was so easy to find and to access the rest of Milan from this area. the highlight for us was a trip to San Siro Stadium to watch AC Milan and Balotelli scoring two goals against Palermo. If the weather had been warmer we would have visited Lake Como a mere 50 min train ride. From Milan there are so many other beautiful places to visit. we found eating around the centre of Milan quite cheap. The reason is i suppose because is because my sons love pasta and pizzas so lots to choose from and inexpensive. We loved the Duomo a must to visit and the shopping centre the Galleria.
i must say we felt very safe in this area despite reading other blogs on trip advisor. Reading other peoples reviews i CANNOT begin to understand what they are bloody moaning about. Milan is a wonderful city. we felt safe. we loved the city. the people were friendly. soooo much to do around Milan and the outskirts.
the bus only took about 50 mins from Bergamo to the main station in Milan. All in all a wonderful experience and would go back there no problem. Thanks Stefano. Your apt was so tranquil and so warming and confortable.
The location and the quiet court yard off the busy main street.
Nothing to complain about at all.
