We stayed at Madoninna for a week in the mid of August 2013. It is a beautiful place a couple of minutes from the motorway, ideal for a stop over or even better for a week of wonderful holidays. You can choose between the morbide charme of the old albergho or the New York Loft style of the new building where they have a lovely roof terrace with a small but very refreshing swimming pool. Great views from the terrace over the hillside.
We stayed a the modern building, huge room with two queensize beds, nice bathroom and air conditioning. everything was clean though of course a lot of concrete, wood, and minimal style like I mentioned a bit meatpacking district boutique style.
Madonnina is famous for weddings and other events, they have the perfect party locations.
The owners Roberto and Carla are the best. They are full of heartwarming hospitality and you happen to feel like in family. Also the other service staff was very friendly and helpful.
The food was delicious. I lived for two years in Italy and therefore know to differentiate between true Italian cuisine and Tourist Staff. here you get genuine Italian food, always fresh and always home made. Usually I do not care for dessert, but here the pasticciere was wonderful. Also Pasta, Meat and Fish were of the utmost quality.
I can highly recommend staying at Madonnina and we will surely return. It is a great place just 10 minutes from Foxtown (for shopping) twenty minutes from Lake Como and an Hour from Milan. So there is a lot to see and to do. But if you rest on the beautiful roof terrace you suddenly forget about shopping and Sightseeing.
Grazie Carla, grazie Roberto
