We stayed 3 nights while visiting EICMA. If you have no car while in Milano proximity to a Metro stop is crucial. Girasole has that. From Malpensa you just take the train to Cadorna, and then the M1 Red line to the San Giovanni stop. Easy, cheap and quick. The hotel is about 100m from the Metro stop (a bit... More

The owners of this lovely establishment did thier utmost to ensure that we were comfortable and well looked after during our stay there. The rooms were clean and well maintained and our hosts Matteo and Nicola could never do enough to make sure we made the most of our time in Milan. Highly recommended!

My wife and I spent a good 3 weeks in Italy IL GIRASOLE was by far the best overall experience. Nicola and Mateo are probably the friendliest hosts you could ever find. When we first arrive we were not sure if this was the place, there's no sign at the door only a small Girasole sign. We rang the doorbell... More

I almost didn't write this as I don't want other people to discover this little treasure and then it will always be booked out! But I couldn't do that to the owners, Matteo and Nicola, who are probably the friendliest, most helpful people you could ever hope to meet. The B&B is very well situated with a metro stop on...

Matteo is one of the most enthusiastic and helpful B@B operators we have sever met. He has everything at the tip of his fingers: train schedules, subway tickets, museum info, store locations...In terms of friendliness and advice he goes way above and beyond! He also speaks pretty good English. (You've got to see it to believe it!) For a city... More

This hotel was great and the staff couldn't have been better. The hotel is less than a 5 min walk to the metro. From the metro, you can be at the city center in about 10 minutes. The two guys running the hotel were so nice and accommodating. They have metro tickets you can purchase, will book restaurants, and will... More
