Wonderful cosy historic small hotel/guesthouse, run by an absolutely delightful, lovely owner who made us feel like a guest in her own house, without being obtrusive. Very clean and comfortable room with a huge tv. However if you are watching tv in Milan you dont deserve to be there! walking distance to castle and Duomo. Quiet cobbled street, nice and... More

This is an odd review because I didn't stay here. I made an error in my booking and booked for the wrong night. When I arrived, the owner was so incredibly nice. She welcomed me in, gave me coffee, and sorted out my reservation problems. They didn't have room for me that night, unfortunately, but the owner was super helpful,... More

The owners are really friendly and warm, they would answer all my questions and give me advise on what to do or where to go. The breakfast was very tasty and had a lot to choose from. They upgraded my room and it was a beautiful double room with a extremely comfortable bed. The location is very good, very close... More

Casa Calicantus was a wonderful surprise! We stayed in September on the first stop of visiting Italy. Rosanna was a great hostess who made us feel welcome in her home. She and her family did not live there but where only a phone call away. She greeted us with tea and cappacino. She gave us tips on what to do... More

Casa Calicantus is a regular house in a residential section of Milan, a short walk from the top of the Parco Sempione. Rosanna is a wonderful host. She was always around and provided excellent restaurant recommendations. The house itself is just off the tram line, so it is easy to get around the city. We stayed here when I was... More

I have just returned from a six week driving holiday whilst attending special opera performances in major European cities and a Conference in Geneva. I stayed at Casa Calicantus for 7 nights and basked in the wonderful Wagnerian Ring Cycle at La Scala while I was there. To stay in this lovely B&B was a 'home away from home'. I... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. This is an excellent B&B. The best part is its location. We could not make a reservation for Leonald's Last Supper before we left our country. So we went to the church first thing in the morning from this B&B. It is in a walking distance. And listen! We succeeded! We... More

This is difficult as it will be my first somewhat negative response in 4 years of using Tripadvisor. My girlfriend and I are very laid back people and are not those grumpy 'always finding fault' folks who seem to want everything for nothing. The Casa Calicantus is a delightful old building with many antique and original features. All the rooms... More

This B & B is a hidden gem. It's actually an old family home not far from the northern end of Park Sempione, with easy tram access to the Duomo (or you can walk in 25 minutes) and close to Cadorna train station (rail access to Malpensa airport). Rossana is such a warm host that you will feel instantly comfortable... More
