We arrived by train as we intended to cycle. The trip to the apartment was interesting, a lady in the train station rang for a taxi for us, a 3 door car with a boarded up window in the back and a little dog curled up on the seat. The driver hadn't a clue where Il Girasol was, thank goodness... More

Hidden behind what looks like the back of a warehouse in a residential area is a great little hotel, perfect for exploring Milan. My girlfriend and I stayed here late September 2015, in what was the last day of a northern Italy trip. The neighborhood is kind of drab but the subway is only minutes away and from there is...

Last November we had a two night extension from a cruise before leaving from Milan airport. Knowing nothing about the city I needed help to get around. Mateo was wonderful. He gave us maps showing the best places in the city. He showed us that the metro was near the hotel so that we could get into the city easily.... More

The hosts are so polite and kind!!! The rooms and the whole hotel is very very clean and comfortable. Close to the metro you can get everywhere very quickly, but it is very quiet. At breakfast they offer products of high quality.

Nicola helped me to feel welcomed and at ease. It was fairly easy to find Il Girasole by metro and I felt comfortable walking in the area, even late in the evening. Nicole advised me as the the 'must see' areas during my short visit. His guidance was excellent! the room was modern, clean and well appointed. There is no... More

I stayed there with my husband and 6 months old daughter for one night. The great service started even before we got there with a very detailed email explaining how to get to the hotel, we followed the directions to get there by subway and had absolutely no issues finding the place. The hotel was immaculately clean and very quaint.... More

We stayed at Nicola and Matheo's place in Sept 2015. Easy access from the Metro, clean and brightly colored hotel, very clean, and very friendly hosts. We arrived dirty and road weary. They immediately set us up with a delicious coffee and spent a long time explaining all the things we had to see in Milan. We got our mojo... More

10 minutes from downtown by Metro, Il Girasole is a wonderful place to stay. We told Nicola that we were arriving early: no problem. We said we are vegan: no problem. When we arrived, tired from a long flight, they took our bags up the stairs to our rooms without being asked. SO FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL ! We loved Nicolas... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed the hotel. We were warmly greeted and given wonderful information about restaurants and the metro system. The hotel was only a 5-10 minute walk from the metro station, which made it easy to get to the sights we wanted to see. The room was clean and comfortable; they also offered a... More
