“Excellent B&B”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We stayed here for a long weekend a couple of weeks ago. Paola was a fantastic host and, whilst Home BB, is quite a long way from the centre of town, Paola sat us down with the map and showed us the best way to get in and out of town - we pretty soon had two bus routes, a tram route and the Metro sorted. She was great at recommending places to go , restaurants etc
Room (we stayed in London) was modern, spacious and comfortable and Paola put on a fabulous breakfast!
Whilst location is not right in the centre of town, its really accessible for the Wagner area of teh city which has some lovely restaurants and gelateria which was one of our favourite bits of town. Bus took about 15 mins into centre of town and they were always regular.
Would highly recommend Home and Paola as an excellent hostess!

Room Tip: we stayed in London which was excellent

Absolutely loved this B&B. Modern and spotlessly clean - the rooms have everything you could want and the bed is one of the most comfortable I have slept in. However, what really sets it apart is the fabulous Paola who is so helpful, friendly and a mine of information (foodies will be in heaven with her tips). Our flight was 3 hours late meaning we arrived past midnight but we still received a warm welcome (sorry to Paola's boyfriend). We only stayed for 2 nights but would have loved to stay longer.

As I already expected due to the great evaluations here, the hotel is very cozy, new, modern and clean.
Although the location is not central, there's bus lines to center and subway close. (Be careful, taxi's fare was really expensive - 15 to 20 euros to center)
Paola, the owner is extremely gentle.

I had been travelling all day from a skiing village in the Dolomites when just before 6pm I tentatively crossed the busy road in the dark and located number 141 Lorenteggio. Here it was: Home BB Milano. I pressed the buzzer, was greeted with an enthusiastic welcome and invited to come up to the sixth floor. Thus started a four night stay which was just the best - superb.

Minimalist lines, monochromatic tones with stylish accents, uber contemporary fit-out, pillow selection, beautiful linens, choice of bathroom products, mini-bar and coffee machine in room, decent coat hangers, light dimmers, electric external and internal blinds, pansies and herbs growing in the vertical container on the balcony, wonderful shower, great bathroom lighting - and then, fresh fruit and chocolates. This was some room!

Breakfast was a sight it behold. Paola is a foodie: home made bread with her own jams (the orange marmalade - ooh!), her own honied granola which was scrumptious with the natural yoghurt, her own tart, muffins and biscuits (stylish biscuits!), choice of juices, fresh fruit, freshly sliced ham, speck, salami, cheeses, her own dried cherry tomatoes and mushrooms in oil. This was all presented as if for a gourmet photo-shoot. Just beautiful! And then coffee to order!

So a great room, great breakfast but the best is yet to come.....Paola is a great host - smart, savvy, passionate, engaging, informative, helpful, flexible. How else would I have come to taste the best canolo in Milan, hidden away in the Pasticceria Siciliana? A crisp outer shell encasing the finest sweet ricotta with small chocolate chips at each end - belissimo! Then there was the best chocolate shop in Milan; the suggestion to go to Casa Lucia for dinner (off the tourist track); the provision of the local transport day-pass; and on it went - a fountain of information and tips that only a knowledgable local can provide. But Paola is more than just a knowledgable local - she is also in to food and wine (and chocolate)!

This is a terrific B&B and contributed significantly to my pleasure in spending four nights in Milano. Paola is a gem!

We were onlt able to stay here for a night, but Paola was a great hostess, marking the travel routes into the centre, and to local restaurants very clearly on the map she gave us, and even had travel cards for us.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we would like to return to Milan to explore furhter and to stay once again at Home BB.

Room Tip: We stayed in London, which was perfect for us.

Very nice and comfortable room, modern and clean, felt like home.
Best breakfast ever. Everything was homemade by Paola: bread, marmelade, cake, muffins, short bread, muesli
Paola also had a lot of recommendations for restaurants and how to get to the center. Thank you very much.
Next time we will stay there again. Highly recommended.

Excellent and very clean B&B. Perfect for visiting the city, located in an area from which the city center can be reached by bus or tram in ~20 minutes.
Paola is very nice and will make your staying very enjoyable.
