Good location - less than 10 mins walk from the Duomo. Everything else was very poor.
Booking & Property not fit for purpose:
Address incorrect on booking confirmation - had to email (no response) and then ring TWICE to get correct address, turns out it was a mobile number so got hit for that cost too!
As requested, rang when an hour away from apartment - despite this, apartment was not ready and still had to be cleaned, so we had to leave our belongings and head out without getting a chance to change/freshen up.
Damaged wood flooring in hallway, outside bathroom - EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS. See attached photos. We had to place some clothing on this to prevent bashing our toes all the time.
Shower is designed in a wetroom style, but not effective in containing water spray from shower, resulting in flooding in bathroom and all items in bathroom getting soaked (even those hung on hooks, or on sink unit)
Cheap & nasty bedding - attached photo says it all....
Random very large picture sitting on floor in hallway - why?? Was this just dumped here for no apparent reason?
Insufficient cutlery, glasses, equipment in kitchen - didn't lend itself to being 'self-catering'
No-where to leave luggage after check out on final day, so had to drag it around Milan with us
AC only in the bedroom
Excessive building works taking place in neighbouring building resulting in excessive noise levels (drills, sanders, God knows what!), so not possible to be in the apartment during working hours.
All in all, very disappointed with the condition of the property and would not recommend it to future travelers. I stayed in some pretty poor establishments 20 years ago when backpacking, but this was shocking - I cannot believe they charge people to stay here.
- 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
