We spent two nights at Althea. There is just one room at this B&B so it is very quiet and private. It was very clean, a good sized room with a private bathroom (sink, shower, toilet, bidet). The window opens on to the street but it is a private lane so there was virtually no traffic. The room has a/c, a TV (not sure how many channels as we did not use it), and free wi-fi.
Althea is located a half block from a bus route and four and a half blocks from a subway/train stop. Either option gets you into the heart of Milan in 10 to 15 minutes.
Breakfast was upstairs on the outside terrace and was plentiful. Beatrice, our host, offered many suggestions on how to move around Milan (we did not have a car) and sights to see. Beatrice does have a small dog and a cat but they do not have access to the guest area and the only time we saw them was on the terrace at breakfast where they kept to themselves.
We would stay here again, and highly recommend it.
