A friend and I stayed at B&B Althea November 2012. It is one short bus ride from the Linate airport, and tucked away on a quiet side street that is still a 5 minute walk from many bus lines and the Metropolitana that takes you all over. Within 10 minutes youre at the Duomo, etc.
Beatrice is the host with her dog Ned and cat Sophia- both whom we fell in love with. She gives you keys to enter the apartment building and your room (she has a separate entrance for her part of the apartment- its split levels). Therefore you come & go as you please.
You have your bedroom, bathroom and living room to yourselves. All of which are clean, decorated quaintly & meet all needs. Beatrice welcomes you with a map & directions on which bus lines to take, etc. She goes above & beyond what you ask her- looking train times for you, etc. Breakfast is served when you request, and is delicious fresh breads & croissants with jams and jellies. Fresh coffee and juice. Fresh fruit salad & yogurt. Best out of ANY B&B Ive been to.
Overall, Beatrice is so welcoming & provides such a fantastic B&B experience we recommend her to everyone! We made sure to book with her the night before we left as well!
