My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the Da Mila on a recent stay in Italy. Marco was a very nice host and made fantastic cappuccino each morning. He is a food critic so he is very well versed on where to eat in the city and also where to go for gelato. The places he recommended were among our favorites during our entire trip and reasonably priced as well. He also was full of tips on more interesting things to do and see than you would read in a guidebook or elsewhere on the internet. However, this was unfortunately the most underwhelming of the places that we stayed during our 2 1/2 week trip and we stayed all in small bed and breakfasts like this one. The accommodations are very no-frills and the comments some of the other reviewers have mentioned about the smell in the entry to the building and the bathroom during the rain are true. The room we stayed in was adequate but definitely lacked charm and the windows were not double paned so it tended to be quite noisy in the morning. Also, given the fact that Marco is a food critic, we were a little underwhelmed by breakfast. Breakfast each morning was a microwaved croissant, an assortment of yogurts and fruit, and fruit pie. The selection was pretty standard for Italian breakfasts, but the croissant tasted as if it had been frozen previously or was stale and was overly reheated in the microwave. Also, this b and b is definitely not in a picturesque part of town, however it does feel very safe there and is an easy walk to the train station and about a 10-15 minute walk to the Duomo. All in all, the accommodations were ok, but the price was very reasonable.
