My first impression from when we pulled in front of the hotel - was what did I do!!! But....once inside and meeting Luigi my doubts were put to rest. The room, service and overall accommodations were extremely welcoming. Luigi goes out of his way to make you feel at home and offers great advice of things to see and do in Milan. Highly recommend, as I would come back to this gem👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and from the first point of contact via email to last point of contact I cannot find fault and believe me I have tried. We arrived about 2 hours later than expected which I was able to advise the owner but this was not a problem and there was someone there to receive us, shows us to our room and provide a city map with some of the more important things not to miss. The room itself was exactly as described . The bed was very comfortable, the shower quite powerful, the air con controllable and the wifi worked perfectly. Add to that the welcoming bowl of fruit and soft drinks in the fridge ..all extras you would pay a fortune if you stayed in luxury boutique hotel. The breakfast was more than adequate, fresh croissants and coffee each morning. And then there was Luigi...a lot has already been said about this man and I can only speak as I find. He is very friendly, more than ready to give advice on where to go and what to see and where to eat.( he even turned up at breakfast with candles for my birthday and apologised that the bakery was not open so no cake!) The house is in a perfect location close to the restaurants and bars in the canal area and an easy 25-30 minute walk to downtown Milan. In summary, great location, great service, comfy bed and good shower., responds to emails quickly..what more could you want..
We stayed here for 3 nights in July. Luigi was the most welcoming gentlemen! He gave us advice on where to visit and recommended for us to visit the QC spa, which we loved! The accommodation is in a perfect location, close to Navigli canal, trams and the metro. There are lots of lovely restaurants, bars and coffee shops in the area. We couldn't have been more pleased that we chose these apartments! They were clean, spacious and had lots of room for clothes/ toiletries. So pleased we chose these apartments!
What brought my attention to this hotel was the fantastic location. It is within a short walking distance to the beautiful canal area that is lined on both sides with restaurants and cafes. Free parking (around the corner in a parking garage) was a huge plus for us as we had a rental car. The 'suite' we had was super clean and the staff was accommodating, (walked my husband to the car garage upon checkout). A 15 min walk to all of the highlights. Location, location, location.
Love, love, loved staying here!!! Location is perfect! It may look like it's on a busy street but we found it to be incredibly quiet. The little coffee shop next door is fantastic for breakfast and people watching. Luigi and Willie were simply perfect!!! I made a mistake while booking and booked for an extra night. They weren't able to give me a refund but instead agreed to upgrade us to the suite on the 5th (I believe) floor. What a beautifully quaint apartment it was! We were greeted with a huge bouquet of flowers, a bottle of wine, and a fruit basket! Such nice touches!! While the balcony didn't have a city view, it did have a nice view of a courtyard and was very nice to sit out and enjoy a glass of wine. Luigi gave us a map and let us know the 'must sees'. Everything was within walking distance! Alot of shopping, the canals, the Duomo and so much more! We decided one night to visit the canal and thought "What was Luigi talking about? It wasn't busy at all and no restaurants?" We turn there corner and there was Luigi!! He recognized us right away and after chatting a bit, we realized we were on the smaller, more quiet canal. It was early and not many places were open for dinner but Luigi walked us to a restaurant that he recommended and later that night, we went back. DELICIOUS!!! The next morning, we ran into Willie at the coffee shop. He hadn't started working yet but he came over to chat and to see if there was anything he could do for us. Both Luigi and Willie were great!!! FYI both spoke good English which helped because our Italian is nonexistent. If/when we go back to Milan, we will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this hotel.
Simple and basic place to stay, but very clean and well-equipped. Small kitchen, mineral water bar, slippers ... free wifi, free parking. The owners try their best to help the visitors, excellent service. Only 200m from the river and the entertainment center of Milan in Navigili, and 1.5km from the Cathedral . Italian breakfast in coffee shop near the hotel. If they will invest in quality bed and linens it will be perfect.
we have just returned from a 3 night break away with friends and to be clear we normally stay at pretty good quality hotels so have grown to expect high service and standards. The Residence Amarmis is totally different from any other hotel (much more understated) than others we have stayed at but we loved it! it was like staying with an Italian family for the weekend. our chats with Luigi and Willy every day were great and went far beyond what was expected and necessary.... The hotel is very clean, has lovely touches such as fresh flowers and fruit in the rooms and yes you could say not as modern or plush as some but we came away from Milan feeling like we would never want to stay anywhere else is we ever went back to Milan ( and i'm sure we will).The breakfast is in a cafe outside of the hotel but on our first morning Luigi took us in showed us the routine and even got them to make us some scrambled eggs after our beautifully fresh croissants of several varieties again another opportunity to feel like an Italian.... we took the train to lake Como on two of the days which was very easy and had a sensational time and then returned to Milan and walked just round the corner to the canals to find a huge variety of superb restaurants and bars.The location is great and we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and thank you Luigi for a very memorable holiday :)
Found this place on the internet and booked us it was one of the only places that offered free parking close to the main part of the city ( side note- you don't want the hassle of parking a car in Italian cities). The man who owned the hotel was lovely and very helpful. There was even a basket of fruit in the room complimentary and a water cooler. Something we haven't seen before on our travels so it gave us the chance to save some money on water. There was even a little kitchenette! Which was just wonderful after travelling for a few weeks. The issue waS the fridge didn't work - the man offered to change fridges for us but given we were only staying two nights we didn't see the point. Only negative was the noise that was coming from above our room until early hours of the morning. It sounded like people were moving furniture and shooting a porn video until 1am. It was very annoying. We didn't complain about this as we didn't think the room even belonged to the same hotel. so short of the owner telling them to be quiet, of us moving rooms (which we didn't want to do) we just left it. Would highly recommend!
Luigi could not have been more accommodating - taking a last-minute reservation and helping us to get our rental car out of the (free!) parking garage at 6am before the place opened. Very generous and helpful. Location is super convenient for all the restos, bars, shops in the Navigli area and a pleasant 20-minute stroll to the Duomo. Free parking is very rare in Milan and the parking garage on offer was convenient and secure. Room was fine for our needs; had everything we needed and was clean and well kept.
Our family of five spent the weekend in Milano at the Residence & Hotel Aramis Milan. It was a fabulous location and only a brisk walk away from the sights and centre of the city. We appreciated our local neighbourhood - Navigli for its lively atmosphere and fabulous restaurants nearby. This hotel is well-equipped and comfortably quiet. Luigi and his staff were charming and could not do enough to make us feel welcome and accommodated. Thanks for a great stay in Milano!
