“Perfect Milanese Apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here in a one bedroom suite for about 4 days last Fall and it was great! The front desk knew who we were before we even checked in because they asked for a photo of us to put in the room to make it feel more like it was our home. The staff was very efficient and helpful. They gave us excellent recommendations for quality restaurants NOT tourist trap places. They made our taxi reservations and recommended short cut walking paths to nearby sights and restaurants as well. They made Milan a great place to experience for the first time!

We had only one night to spend in Milan so chose this hotel based on reviews and it's location. What a delight! The hotel is a hidden gem...clean, bright and peaceful. The reception and breakfast room is bright and elegant, sparsely decorated with just the right accents. Our room was divine, we had a corner room with a small private terrace. The room was flooded with natural light, the furnishings were mostly white, it was large and airy and felt very private. It was decorated tastefully and was very clean. The location was great, so easy to walk to everything we wanted to see, yet tucked away on a quiet street. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if there was a breakfast buffet vrs being served a breakfast. Also, it was very expensive to park our car for the day at a garage about a block away. I'd stay here again if I didn't have a car. The staff were friendly and very helpful...lovely hosts.

Room Tip: The terrace was so nice to have even though we didn't really use it. It was a lovely thing to lo...

We stayed for 1 night in this hotel with 4 of us (2 adults, 2 children) and could not have been happier with our choice. The staff were fantastic and really made us feel welcome. The room was clean and spacious and they even rolled in a stretcher bed for us so that our kids did not need to share a double bed (which they hate!).

We took the Malpensa Express to Stazione Cardona and from there it was an easy 15-20 minute walk, even with our luggage. The hotel is in a very quiet street but next to a pedestrian mall (via Dante) which takes you one way to the Castle & the other way to the Duomo. All of Milan's most famous sites was in easy walking distance.

All in all a great stay.

Great location near Duomo, beautiful private terrace where they served breakfast. Service was excellent. Air conditioning easily coped with 37C. Cannot fault in general, there was a very small lift that did not quite go to the ground but for us this was just part of the character of the building.

An excellent small hotel with superb, helpful staff (including the brilliant Ewa) - in a quiet street near the middle of Milan - close to everything you want to see. The air conditioning works extremely well in very hot weather. Stay there!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony and enjoy breakfast served there.

This is a charming small hotel right in the center of Milan - perfect location for exploring the city. The rooms are quaint and comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, the service is cheerful and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious. We only had one night here but if I make a return trip to Milan this will be the hotel I hope to book.

We found this lovely hotel thanks to tripadvisor, so THANK YOU! It is an absolute little gem, right in the middle of Milan, close to everything and charming rooms.
Everyone was so helpful to us, giving excellent suggestions of what to see and where to eat. We felt like we were staying, not in a hotel, but with nice friends. a thoroughly delightful experience at a very reasonable price. We LOVED it, go there!

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
