“Charming and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

The Lancaster is well situated, on a quiet street a few moments from the Arco della Pace and close to Parco Sempione. It's a charming and quaint place staffed by helpful and friendly English speakers. The breakfast buffet is simple but adequate and there's also a small bar where it's nice to take a nightcap. The beds are fantastically comfortable and we were there during snowfall, but our room was snug and cosy.

We stayed two nights at the Lancaster and felt so welcome there. The staff were just excellent, very polite and helpful. The breakfast was complimentary and was very good. The room, despite being in the heart of the city, was so quite and peaceful at night, and the bathroom was spotless! Beds were very comfortable too. Within walking distance of everything. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We had our son with us so had a room for 3. Even the little bed for him was comfortable.

Hotel Lancaster is a extremely well run hotel on a quiet residential street in north Milan. There is an old-fashioned feel about the place, but it is totally modern and convenient. Our room was large and comfortable; the bathroom had every convenience that one could want. And I certainly couldn't praise the staff more -- they were very kind and careful -- even to the point of helping me master the differences between an Italian computer keyboard and a conventional computer keyboard. Breakfast was quite ample -- and beautifully laid out. The neighbourhood has a number of interesting restaurants ranging from Michelin Guide level to plain and friendly. Public transit is a bit of a walk -- there's a tram line nearby, mind you, but the Metro is a bit of a long walk away. These are minor points -- this hotel is excellent!! What a find!!

We couldn't have been happier with the Lancaster. Nice room, attentive service and good location. It's in a primarliy residential area but is only 20 minutes walk through Parco Sempioneto the city centre . And it is close to many (non-tourist) restaurants along
Corso Sepione. I would definitely staff here again.

Lancaster hotel is quite close to Milan's dom (20-25 minutes walking). Very professional personnel, 3.5 Euro for 24 hours. Decent breakfest, nice decorated small rooms. I recommend the hotel due to the personnel and value/money ratio.

I stayed at the Lancaster for the first time last month. I was in Milan on business and was there about three weeks. The hotel was very comfortable, extremely clean, and quiet. I had a small single room and it was very adequate and big enough for a big bed, good desk space, etc. The staff were very nice, knowledgeable of all the restaurants, bars, shopping areas I needed to find. The bar is comfortable and they'll open it at any time and provide drinks, coffee, snacks, etc. Breakfast was typical of small European hotels, meats, breads, sweets, fruit cups, etc. The location is perfect, walking distance to the Corso Sempione, Arch, tram lines and tons of bars and restaurants in the area. The last night of my stay, my wife joined me and they moved us into a double room, very spacious with separate sitting area, small balcony, etc. I go to Milan frequently and will be staying here regularly in the future. Loved the place.

My husband travels to Milan for work and I typical tag along. We always stay at Lancaster. The sleeping areas and bathrooms are clean/spacious, and the staff is helpful and professional. Internet is about 3 euro daily if that's something you require. The signal has always been strong for us. Many of the rooms have a nice balcony with a bistro table and chairs overlooking a charming courtyard. It's perfect for having a quiet dinner if you want a break from the restaurants.

We really enjoyed the breakfast. It includes cured meats, hard-boiled eggs, mozzarella balls, tomatoes and and assortment of pastries and fruits. The best part is that it's all complementary!

The hotel is in a semi-residential area next to beautiful Sempione park. You can easily walk to the tourist sites. If you are driving, be aware of the dreaded ZTL zones for nonresidents. The limited traffic zones are intended to keep traffic out of historic, narrow-streeted areas. Luckily the hotel is accessible without passing through these areas, just pay attention to the signs. This only applies to you if you are driving here. Just a block away is a "hip" area with bars and restaurants that specialize in apperitivo (sp?). If you are not familiar with this, it's really popular in Milan. Essentially, you buy one cocktail and then get to eat off of an unlimited snack buffet that includes pastas, breads, sandwiches, meats, and cheeses.

Milan is a fabulous city, probably my favorite large city in Italy. I would highly recommend Lancaster to both business and leisure travelers.
