This boutique hotel has earned its place at the top of the Trip Advisor list for Milan. What a wonderful experience. Stefania and Maria and delightful hostesses without being intrusive. Each room is individually decorated - ours was the hunting room which had an interesting array of antlers on the wall, perhaps not for everyone but we enjoyed the novelty. The fittings and furnishings are interesting and excellent quality. The bathroom is modern and also spacious, the shower had good water pressure. The bed was absolutely comfortable with excellent quality linen and good pillows. Breakfast was terrific - the food amazing and they went out of their way to offer something special for my gluten allergic husband (a terrible thing to be in Italy!). The table decor was beautiful. The decorator of this hotel really knows their stuff as does the chef. We walked to the Duomo - about 20 minutes, and the canals are about 5 minutes away. Maria recommended an excellent restaurant - I can't remember its name so do ask Maria for the recommendation. There is also a well behaved and friendly dog at the hotel. I can't recommend this hotel enough.

We had a two night stay at this wonderful boutique hotel. You enter through large wrought iron gates into a courtyard. Up a short slope and enter through open sliding doors into a magical world of bric a brac, momentos, collectables all beautifully presented with obvious attention to detail. Warm smiles greet you as you are eased though registration. We were lucky enough to get upgraded to a self contained suite. Beautifully appointed, LOVELY bed with feather pillows offering a great night's sleep. Immaculate bathroom and I could go on, but by now you will have got the drift!

Put simply,, there is nothing bad to say about this hotel. It's expensive relative to Australia but not relative to Milan - particularly during fashion week; which is when we were there.

The location is perfect as it's really close to some great restaurants bustling with people enjoying their al fresco dining, adjacent to one of the canals. As well, you are a short, interesting 15 minute stroll from the Duomo and it's piazza - that seems to be the beating heart of the City.

All the staff at the hotel go the extra yard to make your stay memorable.

Exceptional hotel, strongly recommended.

I stayed there with my wife for 4 nights. It is one of the best property we could have found in Milan. The location was perfect as it was close to Navigly which is a great area with abundant restaurants and bars and full of life.
Our room was good size with a small balcony. The room was done very tastefully and was just exceptional. The breakfast was home-cooked and was just delicious.
BUT the best thing about the hotel are the two fine ladies, Maria and Stefanie, who go to any lenghts to make your stay comfortable. They make the place feel like your own home and are always smiling and have great knowledge about the Milan as well other places as were travelling to Florence after that. These ladies are truly exceptional and the best I have ever met!
In all, we will surely stay at this hotel anytime we are in Milan again!!!

This 20-room boutique hotel is located in the trendy Navigli district of Milan. The hotel is tucked away in a small courtyard making it difficult to find but definitely worth it. The eclectic decor is filled with multiple artifacts. For example, seating in the reception area consists of barber chairs; there is a drum set in the front window and hunter’s boots and ski racquets in the lobby.
The hotel is in close proximity to good restaurants along the canals, and about a half hour walk (or 8 Euro cab ride) to the Duomo.
Our accommodations (penthouse, suite 2) were tastefully appointed, comfortable and spacious. We also had a private balcony facing the front of the building. It rained while we were there, so unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy the balcony and outdoor furniture.
The Yard is a family-owned establishment. Service is extremely personalized albeit casual. Stefania and Maria went that extra mile to make our stay extra special by getting us tickets to Da Vinci's Last Supper (a must), recommending local restaurants and arranging for a driver to take us to Malpensa.
Breakfast is set up in the lobby area. Guests sit together at a large harvest table which is impeccably set with fine dishes, utensils and linens. The offering consists of savoury and sweet foods; your choice of coffee is served at the table. I was told that the delicious sweet treats are homemade daily by Stefania. Complimentary bottled water, juice and snacks are available throughout the day. A very nice touch.
Overall it was a wonderful stay, although not inexpensive.
A word of caution: if you plan on dining on a terrace along the canal, beware of mosquitos.

If you are looking for something different this is your place. A B&B tastefully decorated with a modern touch, hosts that are extremely friendly, a highly convenient location, rooms that are equipped with the newest faucets and showers, everything comes together in a place that makes you feel at home. Worthwhile to be mentioned is that the whole building is not at the street, therefore everything is quiet, Add to that a super breakfast, the proximity to Naviglia and some good restaurants and you don't need to look anywhere else.
The only critique is something that happens in many hotels. Why do they need to charge 6 Euros for a can of Sprite in the room fridge? This should be a convenience for the guest, not a profit area.
To their credit I have to say that when I mentioned this, the charge was cancelled!
Bravo for them!

Believe me this place is worth trying to find! My husband and I drove past the entrance three times EVEN when our navigation system told us we had arrived! My best advice it to look for the McDonald's on one corner and a coffee shop across the street at the Piazza 24 Maggio and then proceed one half block and look for a small black name plate on the wall. There are gates that must be entered and then even when you get into the parking garage you cannot find where to proceed for check-in. This, however, is the only bad thing I can say about this quaint, boutique hotel! The rooms were beautiful - so different! It is a place that you will not forget! The service from Stephania and other staff members was wonderful. They were very kind - always ready to help with a smile. The breakfast was beautiful and delicious and the hotel is located within easy walking distance of the Duomo and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
As it happens with all the most fascinating adventures, that of The Yard begins by lucky coincidence. Looking for a place where to live with its family, its owner instead found a vocation. Mixing the enthusiasm for a new challenge with the experience achieved during his many travels around the world, he built a small and comfortable guest house out of thin air. Spontaneously, this initial project became something more, and in a few years The Yard turned into a prestigious boutique hotel. ... more   less
