Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

When we booked this hotel for a two nights stay, we were asked to answer several questions (like what is your sports etc.). We were wondering why they ask this kind of questions. When we arrived, we've got to know: since we play golf, we were placed in the "golf room", which is decorated to the golf theme.
We had a very nice and relaxing stay. Unfortunately, during our stay, the nearby public transportation was out of order -- should be operating soon again.
Conclusion: not cheap, but interesting and something special ...

Dear Sir/Madam,

we are delighted you enjoyed you stay with us, and that you enjoyed our Golf themed room.
It is our pleasure to be able to make your stay a little more personalized to your liking.

Unfortunately you are right about the public transpot being out of servize in many areas, or moved actually. This is due to the upcoming Expo in 2015, and we hope our city will get a beautiful lift for next year, for it's visitors to enjoy even more.

Thank you for taking your time to write us a review.


Hope to welcome you back some day soon.

Our kindest regards,

Lisa

A must do if you are staying in Milan
I have only one negative " breakfast "
Quirky presentation ! Not enough for us English
We like boiled eggs , yoghurt with fruit , tomatoes and pate pots with French stick
Simple additions that would cost much
Didn't like the extras for breakfast that you would have to pay for xxx
Wouldn't stop me recommending to friends x

Dear Sir / Madam,

Thank you for taking your time to write a review! We appreciate it very much, the feedback fromm our Guests helps us improve.
As for the breakfast, we understand it could not sadisfy everyone's taste, but for being Italian, ours is quite large.
Anyhow, we take all suggestions into consideration.
If our Guest is happy, so are we.

Thank you and we hope to welcome you back some day.

We loved this hotel. I stayed here with my two daughters, twice, to bookend a trip to Italy in July/August. The design is fabulous, and the rooms are terrific. We had the "Maison" suite on the first occasion, and the Cambridge on the second. My preference was for the Maison, even thought the Cambridge was bigger, as the decor was more interesting and it had a better living space. Easy walk to the Duomo, Galleria, Scala, etc. We'll be back!

we had an amazing stay at The Yard. Booked for three nights. Family of four. Asked for the Cambridge room after reading review on Tripadvisor. Very neat room, enough space for all four of us: two adults, 2 children. Staff very friendly and attentive. Owners always around making sure everything is properly done and guests are content.
Breakfast every morning: croissants, bread slices, cookies galore, yogurt and granola/corn flakes; coffee, hot chocolate, juice... enough to start your day!
Still and sparkling water with sweet tray always there waiting for you behind bar in the main floor after a day of exploring Milan. My kids loved it!
Amazing decor. Exquisite vintage pieces all around. A lot of effort put into it.

From the quirky bar to the individually-themed rooms, the team at The Yard have done an amazing job of creating a truly unique accommodation experience for visitors to Milan. The level of detail throughout the place is amazing and our room (the 'Hunter' room) was spacious and comfortable with a large outdoor space. When checking in I mentioned that I was hoping to catch the F1 so when we got up to our room, of course the F1 was already on the TV!
We really enjoyed meeting other travellers over our breakfast basket around the big table downstairs. The bar is great with about 8 different 'spaces' to hang out and have a pre-dinner drink each night. The staff were brilliant and you can tell that they've been recruited based on a personality-match to the hotel's style.
The hotel is in a good spot for walking up to the Duomo and the main shopping districts of Milan. It is also very close to the canal with it's array of restaurants (although there are some nice restaurants right around The Yard too).

Would definitely return and recommend to others!

Room Tip: I think there may be 'standard' rooms available, but see if you can book a themed room - ver...

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
