Spent 3 nights getting kids (3, 5 & 8) adjusted after flight from Australia. Hotel was perfect for us. We had the double suite on the second floor which gave us two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living space with a small kitchenette (we didn't use it) and a sitting area in the smaller bedroom, giving us all plenty of...

Perfectly located within a few hundred metres of the Galleria and the Duomo, this jewel is hidden in a sleepy backstreet. Room 4 was stunning, stylish, light, cool, airy with its own terrace. Staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. I highly recommend this hotel as an oasis of calm in a busy city. Five stars!

We loved the hotel! The location is perfect (short walk to duomo and castle/park). The room was beautiful. Very clean, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed stepping out on the small balconies that overlooked the street. I emailed a photo of our family to be displayed. It was framed and was prominently displayed on the desk. Our kids got a kick... More

Thanks again to fellow trip advisor reviewers, for recommending this small hotel in Central Milano. From a rather understated entrance we ascended to the top of the hotel and our lovely room complete with large outdoor terrace (potted trees, loungers, table & chairs, red geraniums) perfect! Quite unbelievable that you can be so close to everything that's going on, but... More

When we entered our room we knew that we had made a good choice. Space, light and elegance, and only 5 minutes from the Duomo and other wonders of Milano. We had tickets for La Scala and were able to stroll there for our wonderful night out, really only 3-4 minutes walk! Having spent a month in various cities in... More

After traveling for nearly 3 weeks in Italy, we spent our last night in Milan before heading to the airport. We selected this hotel because it was within walking distance of some of the sights we wanted to see. After negotiating a rather large rental car through the many streets under construction in Milan (for Expo 2015), we walked into... More

This hotel is ideally located just off what is said to be the largest pedestrian area in Europe, just minutes walking to the Duomo and around the corner from La Scala. The room itself was quite large with a beautiful, large private terrace. My two complaints, however, are the step down from the short hall way from the door and... More

My wife and I enjoyed a few nights in Milan in the middle of June and greatly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is ideally positioned for the main sites, being equidistant from the Duomo and the Castello, and around 15-20 mins walk from Da Vinci's Last Supper. Our room was very pleasant with first rate air con. We... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Locanda is an unexpected oasis of peace and quiet in Milan’s frenetic city centre. The elegant 18th century building is in a pedestrian area dedicated to shopping.Once you arrive you can forget your car – you’re in the very heart of Milan, close to La Scala opera house, the Duomo, the Stock Exchange, and the famous designer stores on via Monte Napoleone and via della Spiga.The décor is the creation of architect Vittorio Locatelli, who loves combining refined warm pastel hues with rough, natural materials, following his fancy wherever it takes him. His intention was to furnish the Locanda so that people would feel they were at home. He designed four suggestive rooms, each with a beautiful flower-filled terrace, a rare occurrence in a city like Milan.The atmosphere throughout is pleasant and relaxed, and prompt personalised service is guaranteed. ... more   less
