Nice hotel, close to everything and amazing staff

Posted 22-Jun-2014
Pros: It was a nice set up with REAL air condition (some places in Italy say it's air condition but not really, this is really is).
Cons: The wifi was not very good. My two boys were very disappointed. It's sad to say that I actually received faster downloads when I left the hotel.
Location: It is walking distance to EVERYTHING! Shopping is everywhere. The Duomo is about a 20 minute walk (at least). The castle is about 30-35 minutes.
We liked this hotel but we loved the staff. Luigi greeted us upon arrival and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. He explained how to get to everything and asked if we needed anything. Willie, the other owner, was around a bit more and super responsive to our needs. As a family of four it was wonderful. The hotel is literally in walking distance to everything a tourist would want to see, which is great. No taxi needed. If you decide you want to rest your feet, it is very easy to navigate the public transportation system.

Excellent apartment-hotel for a great price

Posted 24-Mar-2014 on Hotels.com
Luigi, the owner, is very welcoming and helpful. The Residence House is an excellent place to stay within walking distance of most tourist attractions and the metro without breaking the bank.

Pros: The location was very good, overall. A 15-20 minute walk from the Duomo and 5 minute walk to a river / stream area with great restaurants.
Cons: Really, not much. The rooms were more spacious than most and there was a great kitchen. The shower was a little small for a larger size person.
Apartment / condo style scenario. Willie, the partner we spoke with, was very helpful in pointing out great areas for food and things to do while in Milano.

Watch out for "resort fee"

Posted 24-Dec-2013 on Hotels.com
Our stay was OK and the price was good (compared to other Milan hotels) since we received a discount for staying more than 5 days. But the listed price was dishonest since there was a $15 per night "resort fee" even though this very obviously was not a resort. I think that hotels.com should make sure that its listed prices are the real prices and not just a come-on. Even with the $15 resort fee the price of our room was reasonable, but I found the use of a non-standard add-on annoying. Also, the picture shown on hotels.com for the hotel was quite unrelated to our experience in this hotel. There are some canals in the neighborhood, but none were part of our experience in this hotel.

Great value 20 min walk from city centre

Posted 02-Nov-2013
A large room with a kitchen provides a great base. The manager has a great personality and was most helpful. Easy public transport or walk to city centre.

Home away from home

Posted 17-Oct-2013
This isn't a hotel it's better! The room was very comfortable and has more than you need + more! Location is close to wonderful restaurants and bars and only 15-20 min walk to the major sites but also around the corner from the metro that will take you wherever you need to go. What makes Residence House Aramis is Luigi, Luigi is helpful making your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! We will definitely be back to stay. Thank you for everything Luigi, Alyssa & Gary

Welcome in Milan

Posted 27-Sep-2013
Pros: Felt secure despite all the graffiti; graffiti everywhere in Milan. Coffee shops right outside the door & ATM.
Location: Quick taxi ride from the train station. Metro a few minutes walk but downtown Duomo an easy 15 minutes walk. Hop on Hop off bus stop near by.
Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Did our laundry. Small gestures to make you welcome, fruit basket on arrival.

Excellent Urban-Family Stay

Posted 12-Jun-2013
Pros: The staff - my daughter still asks if we are going to see Mr. Willy again.
Cons: I'd have felt slightly more at ease with a chain or inside-deadbolt on the door.
Location: It's urban, there are graffiti on the neighborhood walls, but it's an active neighborhood with nightlife, restaurants and shops.
I stayed at the Residence House with my husband and two kids (3 and 6) for 3 nights before departing by train to another Italian city(May 2013). I contacted Luigi (manager) in advance via email. I wrote in Italian but Luigi is a fluent English-speaker (as is his partner, Willy). The 1st thing he did was get us a taxi upon arrival at Malpensa. I warned I'd have a lot of luggage & a carseat, & the gentleman who arrived was driving a van…score! Luigi said he would be away but that Willy would be there to assist us. Residence house is different: this really isn't a hotel. It's more like an apartment building (better for a family visit: kitchen, etc.). The managers aren't always there, but whenever I needed anything, I could call & get help immediately. Two things I wasn't expecting: Willy BOUGHT US LUNCH (the four of us) our 1st day!! It was completely and, pleasantly unexpected. Second, with kids, I was producing a lot of dirty clothes in 3 days. Willy had it washed for us at no charge. The only negatives: there's no extra lock on the door, just the 2-sided key lock. Being from NY/NJ, I was mildly uncomfortable without an extra deadbolt, but there are 2 door locks entering the building. The other is that the toilet didn't always remove solid waste well. It never backed up, but you could see the solid waste sitting there at the bottom, despite it flushing properly every time. I would recommend this place and even stay there again if we go on a family trip to Milan again!!!
