The Yard Milano
A quirky boutique hotel in Navigli, the Yard is recommended for those who want to stay in this bohemian part of town. A short ten-minute drive will take you downtown, where most of the city’s attractions, commerce and financial centers are. The unusual décor includes travel trunks, old boxes, sports trophies in a super stylish atmosphere that seems somehow British and a little hipster as well. The hotel started as the owner’s family home and in time developed into a vintage style hotel. You still get a homely feeling right at the lobby. It has a bar that is very popular with locals, and can get quite crowded on weekends, offering games like backgammon. Rooms are unique in layout and style, mostly sports themed, from boxing, skiing, to cycling or rowing, but there are more traditional options, decorated in light neutral shades. All rooms are comfortable and spacious, with concrete walled bathrooms. Rates usually include breakfast, a rare find nowadays. If you like Navigli, and if a vintage style and an intimate stay in a trendy setting appeal to you, The Yard is just your ticket!
