Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2011

After quite some unpleasant experiences in tiny business hotel rooms in Milan I found this jewel. Situated in a wonderful historic building the owners kept the charme of the centuries and upgraded it to a wonderful design boutique hotel. Excellently located in the middle of the city center, a few steps from the Duomo and at the same time in a very quiet street it is close to Metro and Airport Express train.
The service is outstanding, a bottle of water was brought up to my room without that I asked for it and my breakfast was served on my wonderful private terrace.
The room itself was big, the bed comfy, a marble bathroom attached.
Definitely found my place to be when I am next time in Milan.

Room Tip: opt for 3rd floor rooms with terrace!

Ref other reviews, found the hotel with no problem.
Rooms on the small side and a little bit dated. Terrace was the highlight and we even managed to eat breakfast out on a December morning with clear blue sky. The main problem however was the sound insulation which could be improved. Activity in corridor and other rooms was clearly audible and my wife and I did find ourselves speaking more softly etc to ensure we didn't disturb other guests. Not good.
I will emphasise that the staff were very helpful especially with restaurant booking etc.

Very friendly staff with nice rooms. We had the Terrace room which was very nice. Took care of us very well. The location is everything we could walk to all the major sights.

Really nice and quite rooms and very good location!
Super position in the very heart of Milan, close to La Scala opera house, the Duomo and the famous designer stores on via Monte Napoleone and via della Spiga.

I just spent three weeks in Milan at the Antica Locanda dei Mercanti, and feel that the first thing I have to say is that their staff is absolutely wonderful; they are efficient, caring and attentive to their guests needs and have contributed in making my stay very pleasant indeed

The hotel is at the centre of town which is very convenient, and the setting is absolutely delightful, the rooms are all equally spacious, bright and charming, and its very well kept.

we stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was a very pleasant stay. the hotel was quite small and it had no sign on the outside, but the rooms were wonderful. full of light and beautiful furniture. it`s an excellent mixture of antique and modern design. everything was absolutely clean and spotless. the bathroom was nice. the breakfast was excellent.
above all the staff was very friendly and very helpful.
it`s located just 5 minutes walking distance from Duomo and its surroundings.
what can I say?! it was a perfect spot to stay while in Milan. I`d highly recommend it to anyone traveling there.

We loved our stay at this lovely hotel. The staff was great and the room was specious, very clean and comfortable. My husband and I have traveled many times to Europe, and have not always had luck with picking the hotels online, but this was a great choice. We were very satisfied with our stay, and have recommended anyone we know who is traveling to Milan to stay at Locanda or as we call it the "Italian Gem".

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
