La Caravella
Ranked #292 of 431 Hotels in Milan
Reviewed 4 January 2012

There's not much you can say. It's a budget hotel in Milan. It's about 2km from the centre but you can get a bus or tram. The room we had was tiny and the breakfast minimal. On the plus side:- it was quiet, there was plenty of hot water and fresh linen and the staff were helpful. Also, there is a restaurant across the road which is excellent and reasonably priced (Timeout 5 - don't be put off by the name!).

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms looked bigger!

Reviewed 3 September 2010

Had a trip around Italy and spent 3 days at the beginning of the trip and 1 at the end. And it was probably the best value we got among 5 other hotels in different Italian cities.
Extremely helpful receptionist.
Very useful location: 6-7 stops (10-15 minutes) by tram 27 or bus 73 to Duomo, several stops (also about 15 minutes) to Centrale FS by bus 92.
Good restaurant just a block away.
WiFi is available at 5,00 Eur per night.

Only one negative thing: rooms are not big, and there's no elevator in the La Caravella so living on the third floor might be a problem for those who don't like stairs.

Stayed just one night in February. Looks unpromising from the outside, but the young lad in the reception was friendly and helpful, despite not speaking much English (not a criticism - i speak little Italian!)
The room was clean, though small. Excellent shower.
Good links into town, with buses and trams a short walk away.
I would say that as a cheapish stay for a night or two, La Caravella is fine.

I initially chose the Hotel La Caravella because it seemed convenient to Linate airport. It is indeed between 15-20 minutes by taxi from the airport, and it is also an easy trip to Milan's glorious Duomo. The walk from the hotel to La Scala, the Duomo, and the Victor Emanuele Galleria would take about 20 minutes if you walked there directly--but you won't. There is too much window shopping and architectural admiring to do on the way! Streetcar and bus are convenient and easy to use from the hotel to downtown as well.

The rooms are clean and simple, with very comfortable beds. The small bathrooms include a bidet and the tiniest shower I've ever used. Lots of hot water and good water pressure. Don't be put off by the cotton waffle-fabric towels; we found these throughout Italy and not only do they dry you faster than terrycloth, they probably use much less energy to wash and dry.

The people at the hotel are very friendly and very helpful. They have maps, know where things are, when they're open, and how to get there. Little English is spoken, but these folks are experts at communication and made the whole adventure fun. Carmine made what turned out to be the best cappuccino we had in Italy, and he'll make you as many as you want. The breakfast included yoghurt, croissants, cheese, and juice.

The Caravella is a good choice. I'd stay there again.
