“Amazing!!”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

So much passion has been put in to the décor of this hotel! The little knick knacks speaks of so much character. The place oozes with warmth and hospitability. We had the Cambridge room for a family of 4 ( 1 teen and 1 pre teen ) and we really loved the Cambridge themed room. Location was excellent as it was about a 10 to 12 minute walk to the Duomo and a short walk from easy dining places, shopping and also a short walk - about 10 mins to the canal which was alive and buzzing in the evening. From the Duomo you could walk on to Fashion District or take the metro. Lisa gave us some really fantastic recommendations for meals that suited us perfectly!
Breakfast was good for us. Choice of jam, chocolate, plain croissants and nutella for the kids on toast if they wished. Hard boiled eggs. Refills of coffee, cappuccino, tea, chocolate and a large cookie jar- home made. You can sit by yourself or share a long table- easy and there was always Pina to keep you company! All the staff were warm and friendly and eager to make our stay a comfortable one! Will stay here again when next in Milan!

Our family of 7 stayed there for 2 nights at the 2 penthhouses on the 3rd floor. The room each had their own themes and we love it. All of us from the adults to the children enjoyed the stay and the experience. The owners made us feel very welcome. Lisa at the front desk was very helpful from the check in to the day we checked out. We will definitely stay here again if when we are back in milan. Will also spread the good words of this amazing place to our friends back home. Lastly, the kids had fun with the dog peanut.

I booked this hotel based on reviews on tripadvisor. I was a bit disappointed. The room was very large for a European hotel. Even though it has a "kitchen" area, there was no plates or utensils. The balcony was mostly crowded with plants that made it not very attractive for sitting. And the breakfast consisted only of a croissant, juice (from concentrated) and coffee. The location was somewhat inconvenient. Compared to other luxury hotels in European, The Yard did not meet the standard.

Dear Madam,

Thank you for taking your time to write a review on The Yard, we appreciate all feed back since this helps us improve.
As for the non functioning kitchen, we understand you completely, we are in the process of having them removed.
As for the area, this to us was as surprise since most of our Guests are very happy with this area being close to the City Center and the Navighi cnal area full of restaurant.
But of couse, everyone has different needs and wishes.

Our kindest regards,

Lisa

"Would you Iike me to prepare a croissant for you? What would you like in it? Jam or Chocolate?"... This is what greets you every morning at The Yard. This place is exceptional. The decor is sophisticated yet warm and welcoming. I spent a few good hours looking at all the corners of the lobby. It is an attraction in and by itself.
The hotel is located near the porta ticinese, near the Piazza 24 Maggio, a few minutes was from the two canals that are lined with restaurants and cafés, and the area is extremely live and bustling with locals and tourists.
The hotel staff are amazing. This is a family owned business, and they are so warm and welcoming. They are extremely well dressed and elegant, typical milano fashion. Christian, the young Internationale fan who greeted me on arrival with his tie and smile, is very friendly: so much as to forgive me for buying AC Milan stuff for my kids. They accommodated me beyond duty. I needed an item I couldn't carry on the plane (a toy horse head on a stick I needed for a ceremony), and asked whether I could borrow it from them. They didn't have it, but found it on amazon.it for me! They named it Pino, matching the lovely Pina their dog.
The rooms are amazing. I stayed at the Slalom, ski and sleigh theme. The room was newly renovated, warm lighting and high ceiling in both room and the bathroom and a rain shower like nowhere else. It was on the second floor, with a terrace with seating. The closet was scented with a product from Al Bazar, a local upscale men's boutique. I also saw two other rooms, the Puck (hockey) and football.
There is wifi and a large HD TV in lobby for sports fans. Wifi is on and off, which maybe annoying for some travellers. The walls are also thin and noise travels easily between rooms, but these were not at all troubling for myself, paled in comparison with everything this place has to offer.
The hotel is 15 minutes from Duomo, 15 minute walk from metro station. It is surrounded by great restaurants. I asked the staff for recommendations on everything, and got the absolute best of Milan, from restaurants to boutiques to clubs.
The bar in the lobby is busy in the evenings. There is live music on Fridays, and Saturdays a nice social scene.
Housekeeping staff are also very pleasant, and take great care of the room. I don't understand why this is only 4 star. It matches many 5star boutique hotels in Europe, even in North America.
On the day of my return there was a taxi strike, no cabs to be found. They found me a private car, no problem to go to airport.
A far as Milan is concerned, I will go back each and every time to The Yard Milano... There is no place like it.

The service we experienced at The Yard Hotel was superb. The staff is professional, friendly & helpful. I would highly recommend this Class A Hotel to everyone. When I am in Milan I will definitely stay there. It has a great location & even offered parking.

Great amenities & wonderful outside deck. A true gem.

A golden nugget in a nice Milan area !
A charming boutique hotel where all rooms have sport as common theme. I was in the "off-side" room which has football memorabilia.
Beyond the precious decorations, at night there was an amazing atmosphere where the staff gives a plus point. So take your time and have a drink suggested by the skilled bar tender Settimio (Seven) and have a chat with Max the eclectic night receptionist.
Thanks guys! I'll come back soon

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
