I've used TripAdvisor numerous times to help make a decision on where to stay or what to see but I've always been too lazy to write a review ... until now.
Matteo and Nic were fantastic, possibly the most helpful and enthusiastic owners I have ever come across. They made you feel as if you were staying at home.
Before all that however, when I booked I had an email from them to explain the best way to get from Monza to Il Girasole. I'd also asked if we could arrive early and leave our bags as we were coming straight from the camp site in Monza and so would be there before check in time. I had an email and text to say that they were expecting us and the room would be ready ... and it was. When we arrived at 11am, not only was the room ready but we were greeted with a warm reception, coffee and a pastry. Matteo then spent a good 10 mins explaining the best way to do a whistle-stop tour of Madrid as we only had one afternoon before returning to Scotland.
The room itself was fantastic, clean, tidy, roomy, air-conditioned, newly decked out bathroom with amazing power shower. Location wise, it's within a 5 minute walk to the metro station and only a few stops from the city centre ... so it was easy for us to arrive from Monza and just as simple to get our bus from Milan Central Station to Malpensa Airport.
And all this when we we're only staying 1 night. We will definitely be going back for a longer stay and to see more of Milan.
