El Paso Bed & Breakfast & Apartment
Ranked #88 of 283 Milan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Location is in Loreto, felt like a safe enough suburb even though some reviews of this area are not so good. But its not a posh suburb.
Its near the Loreto train station, which is convenient for two railway lines (e.g. the Duomo line and the Centrale line). When arriving by metro, make sure you take the Via Pacini exit, or you may have to walk quite far.
Giovanni is a very nice host, loves to chat and joke, and we found him memorable with his good nature. One night he didn't like the way we were cooking our spaghetti so he pretty much cooked it for us!!
He has a Golden retriever who is pretty docile.
Rooms are large, bathrooms are shared, 2 bathrooms for four rooms, which I think are all double rooms. Very clean overall.

This was a lovely apartment to stay at while we were in Milan. It's close to the main canal where all the restaurants are at. When we booked this place, we actually didn't know this wasn't a hostel. Rather, this place is an apartment and the host meets you at the apartment when you submit your arrival times. I would highly recommend to confirm your arrival time as we made a mistake with the host, and our flight was delayed, so she was waiting for us. We felt very bad.

The host is very nice and speaks very good english, which isn't always common in milan. There is also free wifi.

The apartment itself was clean, nicely decorated, and roomy. We thoroughly enjoyed it and wished we actually stayed longer. The breakfast was good/simple. You could make your own fresh coffee, toast, cereal, and there was yogurt and bottles of water. I felt very secure in the apartment as there were shutters and a good lock on the door. The place is in an area that isnt super touristy, which is nice. Its also right next to the tram line, so easy to commute around on. It was easy to get to from the main milan train station.

The bathroom was nice and clean and updated. The shampoo and body soap is provided. Lots of clean towels provided too. The only thing that I have against the place is that the traffic can get a bit noisy in the morning, so make sure the shutters are closed at night. Bed was comfortable, but there is no air conditioning. There is a fan though. This apartment may get hot in the middle of summer though.

Overall, for what you pay, this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Stay at least 2 nights to fully enjoy this place.

We stayed here only one night but the bedroom was really nice and clean we even had a small balcony. Very handy the elevator if you are traveling with heavy luggage. The owner is very helpful and extremely friendly. On top of that he prepared a delicious breakfast. It's close to a metro station around 10 minutes walking. The bathroom is shared but since there are only a few bedrooms it's clean and ready to be used at any moment. There are a few nice restaurants in the area. I absolutely recommend to stay here. Great value for money.

My husband and I stayed at El Paso for just one night, but had a great experience. The location was really convenient, less than a five minute walk from Loreto station, which just a couple of stops from the Duomo. Giovanni was very helpful and friendly and his dog was very sweet as well. I loved having a dog there, but even if you're not into dogs Keko was very low-key and doesn't pay you any mind. Giovanni made a great breakfast, which we enjoyed on the balcony, and was happy to let us use the kitchen when we cooked dinner in. It was super nice that this small b&b had two bathrooms so you could still use one if someone was in the shower. Our room was spacious and very clean, as well. For the price, El Paso was absolutely perfect for my husband and me. I would highly recommend staying here.

I loved it here. The owner is lovely and welcoming, the room was light modern and spacious and overlooked Milan. Breakfast on the balcony was delicious and the wifi was fast. Not far from Loreto station and just a 5 minute subway ride to Loreto station from Stazione Centrale. Loved it and highly recommend

The Elpasa Milano was exactly what we needed on our 1-night stopover in Milan. They say it is only 2 stops on the metro from MIlano Centrale Train Station, but we actually found it to be a pleasant 20 minute walk, even with our luggage. We also walked all the way to the main square in town (30 minutes each way), but the metro station is a few blocks from the hotel. The owner is exceptionally friendly, provided a free map, welcome drink, and suggestions for the city. It felt very safe, and the room was uniquely decorated and very spacious. We had to leave very early for our flight but so he set out breakfast for us. Bathrooms are shared. Excellent stay!
