The positives: The apartment I stayed in faced a courtyard so it was quiet. The modern studio apartment and bathroom is very spacious with small kitchenette; it was very clean and tidy. It is very well located, in walking distance to DaVinci's Last Supper, Cadorna station, Sforza Castle. Overall, a nice residential area.
Negatives: As many have mentioned, the WIFI didn't work so this must not be a temporary problem since many have mentioned it. I was also given an alternative WIFI signal to try but it didn't work either. When I advised the lady on the same day that checked us in, she said, since it was a holiday weekend, the internet company wouldn't be able to fix it. That's understandable, what isn't is that others have also complained about the WIFI so it seems to be a regular problem which still hasn't been fixed. And, then each guest is mislead and told the WIFI "just went out". If I was in Milan solely for leisure, maybe this wouldn't be as much of an issue but I was also there for work so WIFI was needed even more. Luckily, there was a cafe down the road that I could go to but this was not the intention (to work in a cafe) when I booked the apartment.
The shower is modern yet has barely any water pressure! It is nearly impossible to wash your hair.
I was also told, as others have mentioned, that the apartment would have some kind of welcome/starter kit in the kitchen. We didn't even have a bottle of water in the fridge. I text the lady that checked us in about this and she never addressed it or got back to me about it (I was there for 3 days). If this service isn't offered anymore, then take it off of your booking info and confirmation and don't position the apartments as something of "luxury" and of offering "extra services" because that was not the case here.
And, guests, be prepared to bring all toiletries and things needed for the kitchen because the apartment was completely empty. I have stayed in many vacation rentals in the past and, at least a bottle of water, milk, sugar, soap,etc would be provided. Some places are generous enough to leave a bottle of wine. No, it's not necessary, but if you advertise something, then deliver on it. It's a shame, because the apartment is well appointed and in a good location so, if they can get their customer service and WIFI fixed, then it worth a try.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The building 'Magenta 62' is a noble house in the neoclassical style originally built by Lombard craftsmen on the project, it seems, by the same Piermarini. The client was a noble stranger of whom, today we’ve lost historical tracks. It seems that he was a patron sponsor of the Convent of the Little Bells (convento Delle Stelline) and devoted in Santa Maria Delle Grazie, in fact the palace is only twenty meters far from the monument;The construction is dated (by Robert Ribaudo architect, urban planner of the Milano town-hall ) in the first half of the seventeenth century.Between the years 1966 and 1968 was subject to heavy maintenance, in conjunction of which has been built behind another building, the garages have been excavated, and has formed the beautiful garden at the frieze of the two bodies of the building.The facade still has a rich portal architraved, flanked by pilasters of granite, two balconies: the first with a mistilinea plant, with elegant wrought-iron railings and the other, neo-classical, linear, with a rich era concrete columns . The windows on the facade are contoured of variously shaped plaster, standing out along with two smaller balconies at sides, with decorations and iron railings. In this context, and inspired by the extreme closeness of the Museum of the Last Supper, we wanted to dedicate all of our suites to the artists of the Italian Renaissance.Welcom to capitalsuites.it ... more less
