Cesena 5 is located on a quiet side street apart from the Old City of Milan but still near a major tram line (Line 12) that allows for easy access into the Duomo and the Old City area (1.50 Euro for a ticket for one). The B&B is very clean with modern rooms (my wife and I chose the Blue Room on the first floor). The room was nicely furnished with adequate storage for hanging clothes and folded items, a large comfortable bed, a small refrigerator, an en suite shower and toilette, and an air conditioning unit (that for this visit seemed to struggle somewhat with the above average temperatures; well over 30 degrees (Celsius) throughout the day and into the evenings). Cristina (the owner and host) was very gracious and accommodating. She had to be away on the day of our arrival (family commitment) but made sure that we could enter the B&B (there is a code that she provided), keys were in our room, and she left us a note to explain how to get around, etc. All was completely in order and coordinated well. We had no problems. Breakfast was adequate but slightly sparse by U.S. standards (some fresh bread or rolls from one of the local bakeries and perhaps some hard-boiled eggs and fresh fruit would round out the offering). Parking is on the street so it might be a “hit or miss” situation but on the day of our arrival we found a spot across the street, parked our car, and did not move it again until we left for our trip to the airport on our way home. We were not concerned since the area appeared safe and there really was little through traffic on the street. We enjoyed our stay and found the B&B, Cristina, and the convenience of being part of the city without actually being embedded in it to be just what we needed. And the convenience of getting to Linate Airport for our trip home made staying here the right choice.
