When: January 2007

A small (11 room) hotel with simple charm. Soundproofing in the hallways could be better, but hospitality was top-rate. {3 stars}

The Locanda Milano is small (11 rooms) and very simple -- the furnishings are basic but comfortable, and very clean. The bathrooms are small but the water pressure was excellent. There is a free internet connection available for guests.

The only problem with the rooms was that the soundproofing in the hallway wasn't as good as it could be, and when someone came in late at night, you heard them. But with only 11 rooms on two floors, this isn't a huge problem.

The attached restaurant was excellent, with fabulous service. Locals also come there for lunch, and can often be found hanging out in the bar, watching futball and arguing politics. (I learned a lot of new words sitting there one afternoon!)

Our hosts were fabulous - they speak English, French and German, but were happy to let me try out my Italian on them.

Of special note was the New Year's Eve dinner - a tasting menu that started with prosecco in the bar, went from 8:30 until 1am, with seemingly endless courses and wines, and ended with fireworks and music.

We were very happy with our stay there, especially considering it was about half the price of staying down the hill in Lake Como! We were there for both low and high season, so our room went from about 80 euros/night to 130 for two people.
