We had an overnight stay here on our way to Nice and we were pleasantly surprised. It is a wonderful little place off the beaten path. The rooms are spacious, very clean and decorated with a simple but artistic style. The staff was very friendly and as we arrived late provided us with sodas and juice. Breakfast was included. We...

I stayed for a couple of nights at Il Girasole, and really enjoyed the warm welcome and exquisite room there. Above all, it is about Nicola and Matteo and how much they dedicate to welcome you and make sure your stay in Milan is as perfect as possible. And that includes suggestions and explanations about the city. The size of...

I just spent 3 nights at Il Girasole, and can't think of anything negative to say about it. The hosts went out of their way to help me with any and all questions. The room was clean and quiet and unique, and had a small kitchenette. The neighborhood was off the beaten path; and an easy, direct subway ride to...

I really can't say enough about Il Girasole and Nicola and Matteo. I had just arrived after a 20+ hour trip and they made me feel welcome and comfortable. The room was spotless and was much bigger and nicer than I expected for a single/standard. I could not believe there was a little kitchenette! It was such a good experience...

I emailed ahead to ensure it was as close to the venue as I thought, ask for dinner recommendations, etc. I am not sure which brother replied or which one met us at...

We stayed in this hotel in March 2012. It is a reconstructed bicycle manufacturing facility that has been totally reconstructed by two brothers as a bed and breakfast. Although it is basic, it was absolutely immaculate in all respects. It is an area off the beaten track in Milan but a short 14 minute underground ride to the Duomo/shopping section...

Brothers Nicola and Matteo were the most welcoming hosts and insured our time in Milan was most enjoyable. Would highly recommend this gem of a b and b/hotel. In a city were accommodations are extremely expensive this place was very affordable. Would definitely stay here again.
