We had a very easy time checking in and out of Silvias apartment. Very quick communication and very quick to answer any questions. The apartment is in a great neighborhood for restaurants and bars and extremely close to the metro to get anywhere in Milan that you would need to go. All of the amenities described in the listing are accurate. Overall we had a very nice experience being on the Navigli. Really fast wifi for anyone who needs to work from the apartment as well. Thank you Silvia.

Silvia's apartment is spacious with beautiful furnishings. The little balcony is nice to have overlooking Milan. Convenient to metro,bike rentals, restaurants,and shops in the Navigli canal. area. The Sunday outdoor market along the canal is a treat for antique buys, jewelry, new art and many treasures. Silvia's suggestion for happy hour at Mag and Indiana Post was fun. We came for the Christo art event in the Lake district. Silvia was helpful trying to give us a sense of how hard the transportation would be. We went anyway and had a great time. Only regret, we had 2 and 1/2 days to stay. Fantastic!

Response from Silvia:
Dear Diane, I'm happy that you enjoy your staying in Milan and it's great that you finally succeded to reach the Christo's Floating Piers. It was not easy at all! Only - as already I wrote you - May I suggest you to try to better communicate with your host to organize check in and check out? We Airbnb's hosts, we are not like a hotel, we can't stay all day available. We have our jobs and our families. We can do our best to welcome our guests but if I ask my house keeper to wait for you for more than 3 hours on a Saturday night, I think is fair to pay a little extra money to her for the disturb. I've tried to communicate with you in many different ways - I sent you 3 phone numbers (mine, one of my friend and the housekeeper that was waiting for you), I've sent you messages with Airbnb, I've tried to call your US phone number - actually I was scared that something happened to you, because I know that the flight from Paris to Milan last 1 hour and 30 minutes and you told me that your flight was delayed of half an hour. We waited for you from 4 pm as agreed and you arrived at 7 pm without send us any messages. The same happened when you left and you decided without ask me before to leave the keys of my appartment under the mat... It was much better and safer to answer the messages that I've sent you the day before your check out. So without any anger, you are welcome at any time but please notice that Airbnb is not (URL HIDDEN) :-)

We had a tremendous time in Silvia's apartment. The apartment is spacious, bright and with comfortable furniture and cool decor. The place is very well equipped and you will find everything you need to enjoy Milan fully. We enjoyed our morning tradition with an espresso on the authentic little balcony. The apartment is perfectly located, just across from the cool market metropolitano and right by the canal. There is a great vibe in the neighborhood and there is always something to do. All in all, I would recommend everyone to stay here when in Milan!
