This B&B is in an very convenient location, and the owner was very nice even thought we arrived rather late in the evening. The room is very nicely decorated and clean, although the bathroom is outside of the bedroom. Breakfast is very simple: toast, coffee, yoghurt. It is an efficient stay for those taking an early flight at Malpensa airport...

I too read the glowing reviews and expected something a bit different. The price was ridiculously low and there was even an extra bed in the room for another person. We were greeted by the owner and, although her English is not good, we communicated well enough and her son, who we later saw, spoke English much better. She was...

Be sure to note checkin and checkout times. Could they be more inconvenient?? Need to be out by 10AM ?? Gimme a break. In after 4? Never saw a checkin so late with a 10am checkout or pay a full day. A joke. Only plus is its clean and fairly close to Malpensa.

When he booked in our structure we wrote our arrival and departure times would like to understand why is this controversy, not a reservation on il Gelsomino

I've stayed in quite a few bed and breakfasts and I'd say this is one of the best experiences I've ever had. My wife, my son and I decided to stay in the little town of Ferno in this B&B rather than pay twice as much for the convenience of a hotel close to the airport, and we're so glad...

We stayed here on our way to the airport and am so glad we did. They were amazingly hospitable. The family picked us up from the train station, took us to a very, very clean and nice accommodations. The room was comfortable, the ac worked amazing during the heat wave! We went to the store to get food and found...

I booked this B&B after I read previous reviews. I am a very positive person and normally I can handle any situation but i think I must write this as the previous reviews are not correct. first of all they charged me 20 euro for pick up from airport and drop off, previous reviews mentioned free pick up. this is...

Good evening we are sorry if his experience was not positive but can not say that the reviews are fake or that he did not know that the bathroom was shared because the site where she booked it says clearly (room with shared bathroom) and transfer service is described on the site as a fee; therefore highly recommend to always...

We arrived a little late and hungry from Cinque Terre and wanted to unload and get to some nice place to eat. Initially, driving through the little town, and given that were coming from the seaside, we're not very pleased. However, the moment we got to our place, the owners Giovanni, his wife Monica and one of the twins were...

I found this B&B on Hotels.com. I was delighted with the quality of this place. The accommodations were actually superior to The Sheraton at the Malpensa Airport. Giovanni, the very nice proprietor, picked us up at MXP and brought us back for our departure flight at no extra charge. This is only about 10 min from MXP. An excellent ristorante...

The rooms, bathrooms and breakfast were great. Big nice rooms, big clean bathrooms even the shared one. We even got an extra room for free (for the third person in the room) because there was a free room. We also got the shuttle and it was ok. It is about 1 km from the train station where you can take...

I had an early flight in the morning, so I needed a place to stay over night. As it was cheap, I didn't expect anything. But, it gave me a positive surprise. The facility was very clean and quiet. Before that, the owner family was very hospitable and creates an at-home atmosphere. I enjoyed a conversation with them and other...
