by 25 January 2015

Enjoying a central location on a pedestrian street in the heart of the historic Brera district, Hotel Milano Scala is set in a lovingly restored and modernised 19th century palazzo. The luxury boutique hotel is just a short walk from the Via Montenapoleone shopping area, the Piazza del Duomo and the Piazza della Scala. Ideal for exploring Milan, there are several metro stations and tram-line stops in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, providing efficient links to the rest of the city.

The majority of the 62 rooms overlook Via dell’Orso, while the rest, overlook the inner courtyard of the palace, and retain the spirit of the “case di ringhiera” of a charming old Milanese house. The themed suites take the names of famous operas and giant images cover the walls from the Historical Archives of Teatro alla Scala; some have a bedroom and a second bathroom on the mezzanine. Bathrooms are spacious and stylish and set in dark marble. All rooms are equipped with all the comfort and amenities of a luxury hotel including a pillow menu for a comfortable nights sleep.

Hotel Milano Scala has several fine dining options, including the Restaurant Primadonna, where the chef and his team create delicious menus based on seasonal cuisine and locally produced ingredients. On the eighth floor there are breath-taking views from the roof terrace over the city and mountains.

Hotel Milano Scala is proud to point out its green credentials and its carbon neutral status is certainly is an additional attraction to the eco conscious traveller. Building on these credentials the hotel has recently created a vegetable garden on the roof terrace. This agricultural space offers the chef a daily crop of vegetables, fruits and herbs for use in the kitchen or in the hotel's eco-chic aperitivos.

Morning concerts are organised in the covered courtyard, and guests can also take advantage of the basement gym, with a number of fitness machines. Hotel Milano Scala offers guests a wide range of bespoke services, including full concierge services and personal shopping.

Breakfast at Milano Scala is buffet style, and includes cheeses, fresh fruit and yoghurt.
