Great value 20 min walk from city centrePosted Nov 2, 2013
A large room with a kitchen provides a great base. The manager has a great personality and was most helpful. Easy public transport or walk to city centre.

Home away from homePosted Oct 17, 2013
This isn't a hotel it's better! The room was very comfortable and has more than you need + more! Location is close to wonderful restaurants and bars and only 15-20 min walk to the major sites but also around the corner from the metro that will take you wherever you need to go. What makes Residence House Aramis is Luigi, Luigi is helpful making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! We will definitely be back to stay. Thank you for everything Luigi, Alyssa & Gary

Welcome in MilanPosted Sep 27, 2013
Pros: Felt secure despite all the graffiti; graffiti everywhere in Milan. Coffee shops right outside the door & ATM.
Location: Quick taxi ride from the train station. Metro a few minutes walk but downtown Duomo an easy 15 minutes walk. Hop on Hop off bus stop near by.
Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Did our laundry. Small gestures to make you welcome, fruit basket on arrival.

Excellent Urban-Family StayPosted Jun 12, 2013
Pros: The staff - my daughter still asks if we are going to see Mr. Willy again.
Cons: I'd have felt slightly more at ease with a chain or inside-deadbolt on the door.
Location: It's urban, there are graffiti on the neighborhood walls, but it's an active neighborhood with nightlife, restaurants and shops.
I stayed at the Residence House with my husband and two kids (3 and 6) for 3 nights before departing by train to another Italian city(May 2013). I contacted Luigi (manager) in advance via email. I wrote in Italian but Luigi is a fluent English-speaker (as is his partner, Willy). The 1st thing he did was get us a taxi upon arrival at Malpensa. I warned I'd have a lot of luggage & a carseat, & the gentleman who arrived was driving a van…score! Luigi said he would be away but that Willy would be there to assist us. Residence house is different: this really isn't a hotel. It's more like an apartment building (better for a family visit: kitchen, etc.). The managers aren't always there, but whenever I needed anything, I could call & get help immediately. Two things I wasn't expecting: Willy BOUGHT US LUNCH (the four of us) our 1st day!! It was completely and, pleasantly unexpected. Second, with kids, I was producing a lot of dirty clothes in 3 days. Willy had it washed for us at no charge. The only negatives: there's no extra lock on the door, just the 2-sided key lock. Being from NY/NJ, I was mildly uncomfortable without an extra deadbolt, but there are 2 door locks entering the building. The other is that the toilet didn't always remove solid waste well. It never backed up, but you could see the solid waste sitting there at the bottom, despite it flushing properly every time. I would recommend this place and even stay there again if we go on a family trip to Milan again!!!

Great hotel for the discerning travellerPosted Apr 15, 2013
Pros: The people and the safety and the standard of cleanliness
Cons: Outside building could do with a facelift but that is just being picky . I did not really have a least favourite thing
Location: In the Navigli area , close to trams and buses and a short walk to Duomo ( centre)
I would like to start by thanking all staff at the residence house Aramis , I could not have been made to feel more welcome in a Michelin 5 star hotel / restaurant . We were greeted in a very friendly manner and promptly shown to our room , The room was clean and secure with everything we needed for a lovely stay in Milan , The city centre was only a 10/15 min walk away with excellent access to buses trams etc... The (navigli) area is where the apartment was located that area has lots of nice bars and restaurants supermarket etc ....... I could honestly not recommend this place enough to anyone who is looking for clean safe and comfortable residence while visiting this city . luigi and Willy are delighted to show you where places are, even if they lead you personally to the door of a good pizza shop nothing is too much trouble. The wifi connection was fast and reliable and all in all its a big thumbs up from us . If we go back to Milan I will definately stay here again .

MilanPosted Mar 12, 2013
Nice, very close to metro. Close to grocery store and other services needed since there is no breakfast but there is a kitchen.
Ridiculously overpriced and overratedPosted Sep 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
We stayed at Residence Aramis for 2 nights last week. NOT a good idea.First you have to take an appointment 24 hours in advance in order to have the key of your room. It was written in very small characters at the bottom of the reservation sheet. Moreover, you have to pay extra 20 Euros for the linen and 30 euros for the cleaning lady. Also the parking is at 1/2 mile from the hotel. Hotel at 25 min walking from the center (Duomo). But located in a nice area of the city. Room was at a 2 star hotel level at the very most. Ugly furnitures, dirty walls, old and stained paint, etc. There is absolutely NO garden and NO view on the city. All we could see is an ugly roof accessible by anybody, so you cannot keep the window open. There is absolutely NO reason to pay that much for this hotel, IT IS A VERY BAD CHOICE!!

Really dissapointingPosted Sep 23, 2012
Location: Navigli - on the canal - ok area - beware of mosquitos.
Where do i start. First thing is the criticisim of expedia - on arrival we were asked for 50 euro by the front desk. 20 for bed clothing and towels and 30 for cleaning the room. There was a potential further 30 in taxes which we were not charged. why was this not covered in the price and located elsewhere of the expedia page at £132 per night plus this is shocking. The area was was shabby noisy and about a 30 minutes walk from the centre. On arrival the room smelt of eggs to which we were advised to open a window as the indians down the hall were always cooking. Noisy city street v smelly room? The room was extremely basic, the bathroom was shocking and dated. The bed was a fold away bed and rock solid. The air con did not work properly and to be honest if i hadnt chosen a "non refundable" option i would have left the following morning.

Perfect stay to enjoy the CityPosted Sep 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
First of all, I am rating the Aramis as an apartment hotel. That means no room services; and there is cleaning only every couple of days or so. It is up to you to keep the place neat and tidy. With that out of the way, the Aramis is clean and comfortable. Good hot water shower pressure. Clean and comfy bathroom. The towels and air-conditioning machine can use an update, but again functional and up to what is expected of an apartment hotel. Luigi the main staff of the hotel is a gem. Always helpful with suggestions, always smiling and speaks excellent English. Very generous with his advices. There is compliementry water, milk, juice, snacks and a bottle of wine pre-stocked, perfect after a long day of travel. The neighbourhood is outside of the crazy busy part of Milan. Quiet location. Short walk to Metro, an express supermarket, an outdoor open market, and the tram. It is also closed to the Nagivali district where there are dozens of good restaurants. The open market, not for the cheap junks, is an excellent place to buy the freshest fruits in the morning; had the best pears I ever tasted all for 2.5 euros for 1kilo! Lastly the free Wifi is reliable and moderately capable (ie. open most files, downloads and streaming). If you are like us who travel to see the city and mostly eat out and stay in the hotel only at night, the Aramis is a great inexpensive option. I give an excellent score for what the Aramis delievers and not because it is a 5-star hotel.
