Our family group of five is just completing an enjoyable five night stay in two apartments at the Haus Bethusy. Both our studio apartment and our two bedroom apartment were as advertised -- basic but clean. I was impressed by the unexpected attention to the little details that make traveling easier: reading lamps by the beds, a small plastic tub for washing out clothes in the bathroom, lots of hooks for hanging up towels, and a kitchen well equipped for basic tasks such as washing fruit, serving wine, and having cereal in the morning. The service we all most appreciated was the good free Wifi that could easily handle all of us online at the same time. True, in the two bedroom apartment it was much stronger in the bedroom than the living room, but a little family togetherness as we each did our thing on our own devices was a small price to pay for such fast, reliable service. For our kids, this was heaven!
Sonia was very helpful and I just want to mention two places she referred us to that we especially enjoyed. The first was the Bellagio Sporting Club, a great place to go for a swim. It had nice pool (though no diving board or slide), beautifully landscaped sunbathing area, good food, and friendly staff. We spent a whole afternoon there and enjoyed seeing many the many Italian families that came there as well. The great second place Sonia told us about was the Punta park and it's lovely La Punta restaurant, which is not to be missed.
I want to second the reviewers who have commented about the good location of these apartments. It truly is a two or three minute walk just up the street to many great restaurants, stores and markets. We found three markets, one general, one good for fruit, and one good for meat.
We made a day trip into Milan to tour the main sights and see the Last Supper. The trip was a bit complicated since it involved taking the ferry, the train, and the metro, and it basically took twelve hours from start to finish, but we all agreed that it was very worthwhile. We were very satisfied with our guide, Alice Salvagnin at email@example.com
