Il Girasole is a great place to stay in Milan. It has very warm welcoming staff with lots of enthusiasm who offered great advice. We received excellent tips regarding the best things to see and do in Milan - places to go, and great locations for meals with local experiences that are not too touristy. The rooms are clean and bright rooms with everything we wanted. Il Girasole is easy to reach by Metro and has good access to downtown Milan. Great value! We will certainly stay here during our next trip to Milan. I wholeheartedly recommend it.

I was travelling with my boyfriend for a weekend break and a day trip to Paris. Nicola and his brother were extremely helpful and hospitable. We battled to find the place when we arrived, so maybe better directions on the confirmation slip, but otherwise we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Will recommend and will stay again!

We had a nice but a short stay at Il Girasole. If we ever go back to Milan we will definitely consider to stay at this surprisingly nice B&B. The area and surroundings of the place, which have a residential atmosphere, does not give you much clue about it. The innkeeper, Nicola is a very nice and lively person too. In short I believe you won't regret to be staying there.

Many thanks to Nicola and Matteo for the lovely stay. Good food and welcoming atmosphere. Convenient to the Metro, and lots of help with touring and train schedules. We wish we could have stayed longer!
