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

I stayed here in June on business. Beautiful rooms, I had a "standard" room and it was excellent. The set up is more just "rooms" rather than a hotel. Great breakfast which is delivered at the exact selected time to your room. Very helpful staff available to assist with any questions. I would like a minibar.

Two of us stayed here for two nights. The room exceeded my expectations (huge by European standards and quite romantic), the staff are friendly and very helpful (helped with luggage, available to help with questions, etc.), and the location is perfect. The hotel is a five minute, slow window-shopping, walk between the Duono and the Castle. The reception staff were... More

Two of us recently stayed fir two nights each time at both the beginning and end of our trip to Italy. The hotel is in fabulous location about halfway between the Duomo and the Castle, about a five minute walk for both. Via Dante is steps away and about a 10 minute walk to Cadorna train station which is one... More

Delightful and welcoming staff plus great location . Rooms start on the 1st floor and are spacious and comfortable. There is a luggage lift. Decor is refined and elegant, breakfast is fine. Location is the big plus, midway between the Duomo and the Castle with a myriad of shops and restaurants on the doorstep this is a great place to... More

In the centre of a city, it is unusual to find a hotel with good sized, well equipped, pleasingly decorated, very comfortable rooms which also have a small private garden/terrace. The hotel is located in a very quiet position, in a small street, but is within a few minutes walk of the principal attractions and some good restaurants. The staff... 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
