“A good find, will not disappoint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012

We booked 4 rooms at the lancaster hotel for a long weekend in July. The rooms were comfortable and clean, basic but with all the amenities required for a short stay. The free breakfast was basic but enjoyable and the staff were very friendly. There are a number of excellent restaurants in walking distance but you need to know what you are looking for. The city centre and lots of shopping are a pleasant walk through leafy tree-lined streets. All in all no complaints when taking into account the great price we obtained whilst staying in peak season. I would certainly reccomend this hotel to friends and family.

The small hotel is a little gem. Located near the Arch of Peace on the northern border of the Sempione Park it is easy to get to downtown from there. 15-20 min walk through the park. 5-7 mins if you take one of the BikeMi rental bikes that are located around the corner from the hotel. The breakfast buffet was very good for an Italian hotel. Rooms were fine, not huge but large enough and clean. It was quiet at night and the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all a very good choice when you plan to spend some time in Milan.

Stayed at Lancaster beginning of August 2012 for 3 nights. Hotel is in a great location, just 5 mins from Sempione Park and Corso Sempione with nice bar/restaurants. 10/15 minute walk from Cadorna train station which is ideal for those flying into Malpensa, as airport is some way from central Milan, but train direct from Malpensa is easy and quick. Walk from hotel to central Milan and places like Duoma Cathedral is only 15/20 minutes walk or so, and walking through the park is lovely.

The hotel itself has a lovely feel to it, the staff are very friendly and speak good English. We upgraded to a superior room on the 3rd floor and had balcony which was nice in the evening, the room was well appointed with everything we needed. Breakfast was plentiful and staff again were very pleasant. The hotel is good value for money and based on its location I would certainly recommend staying here and would definitely come back again.

My only warning is about mosquitoes, not at the hotel, but at the local bars and restaurants. We were not aware there was a problem, but on our first night out eating we got bitten and these mosquitoes bite and suck hard, it will take weeks for these bites to clear up, my wife even had problems with swollen ankles from them, so please be prepared, take repellent, although these critters bite through clothing too!

A visit to Lake Como is a must, again getting there is very easy from the Hotel, just get the train from Cadorna, it goes direct to Lake Como, and there you'll have fantastic scenery and if you take the cable car to the top you'll get a fantastic vista of Como with views out to the Swiss Alps. Wear sensible walking shoes if going up the hill though as there is a lot of walking to do, there is a bus, but if you enjoy walking that is the best way. Views from the lighthouse at the top are awesome.

To sum up, stay at the Hotel Lancaster and you will not be disappointed.

Very nice hotel within walking distance of Milan city center. The room was a little dark, however the great service and location made up for that. Breakfast was very good, more than a typical european breakfast.

If arriving by car, there is a private parking garage located a few blocks away that is approx. 25 Euros a night.
