Whilst the outside of the building may be doused in graffiti (as is most of the area in Milan), the interior of the building is well maintained and in a good condition. The room I stayed in was on the 4th floor (top floor) and put simply, a basic self catered apartment.
With two twin beds in the apartment and a basic kitchenette, it's a suitable place to stay if you are visiting Milan alone or with another person. The fridge in the room is useful and there is plenty of crockery & cutlery to use if you want to prepare food during your stay. I've found microwaves to be a rarity in self catered apartments but the one in this apartment seemed to work and had been cleaned. The express supermarket next door is perfect for this type of apartment and open from 8am to 9pm during the week.
A few minor gripes to the place are the lack of lighting as in the main room there is only a large life size plug in lamp so the desk area is often dark if you want to study/work etc. The wifi connection was strong throughout my stay but would only allow one device to be logged in at once which is inconvenient but a minor issue. Lastly, if you are a light sleeper then this residence possibly isn't ideal as there is a tram line that runs outside and is audible from inside the room plus the electricity box ticks in a similar way to a clock which you cannot turn off at all.
Minor gripes aside, the apartment is a short taxi journey away from the city centre or a 25/30 min walk so in a suitable location whilst not paying the high city prices. There are still over 10 restaurants in the surrounding areas but for more choice, head into the city.
I didn't expect cleaning services in such an apartment but rooms are cleaned 3 times a week with fresh towels etc provided which is a nice bonus.
