Perfectly located within a few hundred metres of the Galleria and the Duomo, this jewel is hidden in a sleepy backstreet. Room 4 was stunning, stylish, light, cool, airy with its own terrace. Staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. I highly recommend this hotel as an oasis of calm in a busy city. Five stars!

We loved the hotel! The location is perfect (short walk to duomo and castle/park). The room was beautiful. Very clean, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed stepping out on the small balconies that overlooked the street. I emailed a photo of our family to be displayed. It was framed and was prominently displayed on the desk. Our kids got a kick out of it. Very nice touch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were happy to recommend restaurants and make reservations for us. The breakfast was delicious. If you choose to stay here, you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

Room Tip: We stayed in the loft and loved it

Great spot in the center of Milan. Staff fantastic and helpful.Best position ever-5 min walk from Duomo,La Scala and Castle.We came from the airport by train that stops at Cadorna station(just 10 min walk from hotel),if you have big luggage you may also take taxi (aprox.3 min ride to the hotel).Then you arrive in front of this historic building(we believe 18th century),makes you suddenly feel like a great and unique experience.
The reception is on the first floor,and there is a small lift that you can use for your luggage.
Once you arrive in reception you are welcomed by smiling and friendly staff.
After very smooth and fast check in they provide you with all information about the hotel and if you need it immediately the city map,reccommednations for the restaurants and all great spots you should see in Milan.
Our room was on the second floor-suite room-big,comfortable,sunny and with fresh flowers.
We know that there are also rooms with private terraces which may be a great option during spring or summer.By the way -air conditioning- super!
You may have breakfast in dining room or in your room as there is also 24h room service.
It was a great experience and we would for sure stay there again in the future!!!

Thanks again to fellow trip advisor reviewers, for recommending this small hotel in Central Milano. From a rather understated entrance we ascended to the top of the hotel and our lovely room complete with large outdoor terrace (potted trees, loungers, table & chairs, red geraniums) perfect! Quite unbelievable that you can be so close to everything that's going on, but on closing the French doors complete silence. During our stay here we even had the pleasure of being entertained by street buskers just around the corner. The violin music (Vivaldi, Puccini) would waft up to our terrace - bliss!
Hotel is close to shopping, restaurants, duomo (stunning), train station .... What more could you want. Staff pleasant and helpful; breakfast simple but delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and select the rooftop rooms with private terrace - a home from home!

When we entered our room we knew that we had made a good choice. Space, light and elegance, and only 5 minutes from the Duomo and other wonders of Milano. We had tickets for La Scala and were able to stroll there for our wonderful night out, really only 3-4 minutes walk!
Having spent a month in various cities in northern Italy we were very pleased that our last stop was in such modern facilities in a lovely old building.
Staff very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was adequate.
Will certainly recommend Antica Locanda dei Mercanti to friends and would definately return there ourselves.

Room Tip: The hotel is very quiet. Our room faced the street, but it is one way and narrow so noise would not...

After traveling for nearly 3 weeks in Italy, we spent our last night in Milan before heading to the airport. We selected this hotel because it was within walking distance of some of the sights we wanted to see. After negotiating a rather large rental car through the many streets under construction in Milan (for Expo 2015), we walked into this elegant, quiet, calm oasis. We had 3 rooms for our family of 6 and each room was beautifully appointed. The staff was so professional and helpful in giving directions and making dinner reservations. We all groaned when we realized we would be at this hotel for only one night. It was truly the best way to end our Italy adventure. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I would imagine all rooms are beautiful. We had 3 and they were superb! It was very quiet and all...

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
