We stayed in Antica Locanda Dei Mercanti for 3 days and it was absolutely fantastic! All reception staff is incredibly kind and helpfull.We have booked a suite room which was just perfect(big and full of sunlight). We loved the space and bathroom was very nice with a very big shower.
We had breakfast in our room at any time we wanted which was a nice surprise.
The hotel is just in the heart of the city-walking distance to everywhere! We highly recommend it to everyone !!

Found this boutique hotel, which is a true gem. After reading other reviews, chose a room with a terrace - and got a big one! Breakfast is served in the room, if you want to, and could be enjoyed outside because of heatwave in March. Big bathroom. Not quite so big bedroom, and fairly simple furniture, not up to the "excellent" standard, but enough. Service really, really good. Provided transportation to and from airport, and this helps, if you arrive late, because the hotel is really hard to find from the outside (read other reviews as well, big green door, but small sign, and anonymous building and street). 10 min walk to the Dome. Less to the Castello. No traffic noise, close to shopping streets. Couldn't be better (well, more comfy armchairs, but, who cares, you can sit outside...).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace!! Arrive early, use photos from reviews, and a map to find the entranc...

finally a real boutique hotel, i often travel for business and i find that all hotels are the same the only difference is the geography!!! but not this hotel......i arrived in Milan after a disastrous journey, my flight was delayed following two cancellations but once at the hotel i was welcomed by the most amazing and friendly staff, i was then taken to my room (which to my surprise was spacious considering is a city center hotel) where all attention to details was given to ensure the best result was achieved, if there was a place i wanted to be, this hotel was surely the place.... Despite the location the room was very quite so managed a wonderful night sleep..Situated right in the city center a few minutes walk from all the main attractions (and yes shopping in Milan is an attraction!!!) which meant after work i still had time to visit the interesting places without going too far... i was on a business trip but i would definitely recommend this hotel for all special occasions, whether with family, friends or partner... i have certainly made it my preferred choice for all my travel to Milan.

Room Tip: any of the terraced rooms or the junior suite

This Hotel, which is a B and B , is charming located very central to the center of Milan. We had this small but very lovely room with a stunning terrasse.
The view was the sky mostly, but very quiet and not overlooked!

Room Tip: Look for a room with terrasse, the best, no doubt !

We only had one night at this lovely hotel, really just a layover waiting for our flight out of Milan. Over the years we have stayed at a great variety of hotels in Italy and we found this hotel to be just perfect for our needs. Sure the lift is tiny and there are stairs to deal with and the bed is firm and there is a small clothes storage recess, but these things are entirely normal in Italy and are of no consequence. The important things are the charming and friendly staff, the modern bathroom, the comfortable bed and lovely linen and the discreet but marvellously central location, including an easy walk (with baggage) to the airport express station. We left too early for breakfast so cannot comment there, and having it as an extra charge suited us. The decor is elegant and understated and the restaurant recommendation we were given was excellent. We shall certainly recommend this hotel and we shall stay there again ourselves.

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
