We were looking for some reasonably priced accommodation in Milan close to the popular Navigli area. Trip Advisor led us to the Residence House Aramis Down Town where the owner, Luigi offered us the warmest of welcomes.
We booked an apartment for six to sleep a group of four friends in single beds. It was a really good size with a bedroom with three beds in, a kitchen area and dining area with two additional beds tucked around the corner. A separate bathroom completed the apartment. We paid the small supplement for all bedding and towels, everything was very clean and housekeeping even came during our stay to tidy up which was an added bonus we didn't expect.
Before we arrived, we agreed a check-in time with the owner of 3pm to allow us to get the train across from Bergamo, a quick call when we arrived and Luigi the owner met us within moments. The apartments are very easy to get to, less than 5 minutes from Porta Genova FS station on the green line from Milano Centrale FS.
The road which the apartments are located on doesn't not seem very attractive, but we did not have any problems and there are two doors into the apartment block before you get to the corridor with the apartments on, very secure. It is a few steps past the postoffice to the main road along the canal.
On arrival Luigi gave us a map of Milan and marked on all the sights he recommended that we visit, giving us a great welcome and also the offer of four free cocktails at the Maharaja Indian Lounge Bar on the corner.
We had two sets of keys and even arranged a slightly later check-out. I cannot fault these apartments in any way, they are located in a group of other apartments, and are well equipped: two TVs, Fridge, fresh fruit, cutlery, Microwave, cooker, hairdryer etc. There is also a Carrefour supermarket within two minutes on the corner of Via Vigevano on the way to/from the main station. Luigi replied to all emails really quickly and spoke excellent English.
