This is not the hotel to arrive at in the Milan rush hour, tired and stressed after being stuck at the Mont Blanc tunnel for two hours. The position that makes this hotel great for sightseeng makes it very difficult to find with your car. It is on the tiniest of one way streets and unloading blocks the traffic (the hotel is on the first floor of an old building so you can't just quickly leave your bags). The terrace room was small with a tiny bathroom albeit with a great shower. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Drinking Barbera late into the night on your terrace extremely peaceful. The highlight of the hotel however was breakfast on the terrace listening to the city waking up. Two points stop this hotel being outstanding; one, the noise from the adjoining bedrooms (very poor sound insulation) and two, it is a little overpriced.
- 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
