Incredibly helpful owners and nice room
Posted Oct 20, 2014
My husband and I stayed at Il Girasole for one night. We were able to find the hotel pretty easily but it took some effort to get in to check in. I didn't realize that we were supposed to call ahead and tell the owners when we would be checking in. When we did actually check in, Niccoli was very helpful. He went through where we should go, how we should get there, explained the metro to us, showed us where the shopping was and even explained where the locals go to eat. He also told us about apperitivo, which we took part in and loved. My only compliant is that there was no AC (was turned off on October 15) and we could hear everything in the rooms next door. The owners' hospitality more than made up for these complaints, but we didn't sleep all that much. Also, I should mention that Niccoli and Mateo went out of their way to help my husband (who I gave grief to after he did nothing for my birthday 6 days prior) to get a cake. They even threw in a bottle of Prosecco! I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying Milan.
