The apartment is located on the 5th floor of an early 19th century building, one of the oldest in this area. What makes it particularly interesting and functional, especially in relation to its cost, is the presence of two independent rooms (a bed-room and a living room) with a small kitchen in between, accessible from both spaces: the apartment is small, but its spaces are well designed to make even a short business trip with work colleagues and not only a romantic pleasure stay possible and, what's more important, comfortable. The living-room is really enjoyable, due to its size and the height of the ceiling, with exposed wood beams, housing a comfortable sofa-bed as well as a small stone studio desk and a nice fireplace. The room on the other hand is small and cosy, facing the quiet and bright inner courtyard through a relatively large window. The kitchen is essential, with a fridge and an electric stove, but equipped with all the necessary tools for the preparation of proper meals.
A place from which you can catch a train to the lakes in the morning and be back in the evening, or easily get to any other part of town using one of the three available metros.A place where you can have fun, eat well, go to dance, listen to good music as well as visit showrooms and small shops. Such is Isola, the area in which the apartment is situated, few steps away from Garibaldi railway (and metro) station and the well-known Corso Como. The district derives its name from the fact that when the railways was built, in the second half of the 19th century, its territory was literally â€œisolatedâ€? from the rest of the town. Once a working-class area mainly still inhabited by workers and small shop keepers, Isola is now experiencing a rapid transformation into an place for large office blocks, luxury housing, commercial and recreational activities. In fact, among the small gardens, little squares and streets that still characterize it, new high-rise ultra-modern buildings as well as vast green spaces are now being built. This neighborhood can count not only on the presence of a large number of typical Italian restaurants and taverns, but also of the nearby famous night clubs of Corso Como and of one of Italy's most important jazz sets: the Blue Note of Via Borsieri. Last but not least, every Tuesdays and Saturdays, one of Milan's biggest street markets will bring even more colours and people to this part of town, where you will find both quality fresh food as well as clothing of any kind.TripAdvisor property ID 2372505...Read more
