The arrival at a rather blank door of the hotel is a little disconcerting, but once in, the receptionist was friendly and helpful, though we were welcomed in to a temporary reception due to renovation of the floor containing both the reception, lobby and breakfast-room. We were not informed of this in advance. The somewhat misleading photographs on their web page had also suggested a terrace available for all the guests which is not the case, indeed there is no common area at all.
Also, not all rooms have their own terrace (I had hoped otherwise) so, although our room was lovely and spacious in itself, it was not quite what I was hoping for and seemed rather overpriced.
Breakfast was very minimal, but what was provided was good quality (nice coffee and fresh OJ).
- 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
