“exactly what we were looking for”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

We were looking for something different - not just a hotel, a room - but something with that little extra. We found it in this gorgeous little pearl. Centrally placed, yet hidden away and charming, its just like living in a luxurious appartment in this wonderful city. Its slightly difficult to find, and parking was a bit of an adventure but well worth the trouble. Friendly staff, cosy, intimate, tasteful, classic yet with all mod cons.... the list goes on! For those that enjoy quality and experiences yet arent millionaires, this small hotel is thoroughly recommended.

We very much enjoyed our two stays at Antica Locanda die Mercanti. We stayed in two different suites and got a peak at a third, and they are all large, airy, with huge windows and high ceilings. Interesting decor and very comfortable. The location could not have been better and the staff was extremely helpful.

This hotel is actually an old apartment building that was converted into this lovely and very romantic hotel. My wife and I had booked this based on the reviews but that's only half of the story. If you visit Milan, with your love, this is where you want to be. Centrally located and literally mere blocks away from all the sights (Duomo, Scalia Operahouse, Galleria, Sforza castle) that make Milan the amazing city that it is. The staff was extremely attentive and always gave wonderful recommendations for restaurants around us. The cobblestone street in front on the building is centuries old and riddled with history just wide enough for one car. You have to climb the stairs up a flight to find the front desk and the elevator (which is size of a linen closet, wonderful) took us to our room. My wife an I preferred the stairs because the visual sense of the space made you feel like you were in a Fellini movie. Once we got to our room even the though the balcony called us the bedroom with it's white linens and lovely setting was amazing and very comfortable.

Hotel is located in quiet street, but very close to centre and basilica. We had junior suite, wich was spacious. Bathroom was big, with shower cabin, toilett and bide. If you like sweet breakfast, you are happy. If you prefer eggs or somethink else, it is extra charge. Staff is extremly friendly and helpfull.

I spent 2 nights in this hotel. I'm from Milan Area, but now I'm living in Luxembourg, so, when I have meeting in Milan, I'm trying to experiment some hotels to suggest to friends and colleagues. Actually this one is nice, very well located in the city center, old but well mantained, but talking about trade off between money and services ... more than 200 euros breakfast included... but you have not to order one yogurth. For the hotel breakfast is coffee or milk, croissant and breas, jam or marmalade. If you're lucky there's the cake of the day. But for one yogurth (not branded) in one cup ... 2 euro more... that is service.

Our suite was very clean and relaxing after a long shopping day their staff was always there with good suggestions for a nice apperitiv and a tasty dinner.
Definitly the pleace to stay when you go to Milan.

Perfectly located in the old town of Milan, this small hotel is hidden in a quiet side street. From the outside you would not even tell there is a hotel in this ancient palazzo. The rooms are nicely renovated, romantic and stylish. The staff is very friendly and helpful. In the winter I would rather choose a room on the reception floor. In the warm season I would go for a room with a terrace on the top floor. The only negative point is the rather unattractive staircase and elevator. But once you are in the hotel, everything is very pleasant. We loved this place and will be back.

Room Tip: room 13 is great

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
