“Contemporary, Comfortable Hotel”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

I enjoyed my stay at this property (2 nights). The hotel is very modern, stylish, and elegant without being stuffy. I found the service and staff to be impeccable with the possible exception that I had to track someone down to get coffee at breakfast. The room was clean, comfortable and well furnished (in room coffee, flat panel, wifi, safe). The bed and pillows were quite firm, which some may find uncomfortable (it was fine for me). Super location, close to everything. Breakfast was a bit sparse compared to other places I have stayed, but it was okay. In all, I like the property and would hesitate to stay here again.

We were very pleased with our choice of Hotel Milano Scala for our two night visit to Milan at the end of June. The hotel is in the heart of the Brera neighborhood, which is accessible to everything the city has to offer. Out visit was built around a night at the opera for my 65th birthday, as La Scala was on my "bucket list'.

We found our room to be typically small,, but nevertheless pleasing and with top quality bedding and mattress. The front desk staff was always welcoming and friendly. Most impressive were the beautiful common areas, where one could take the included breakfast.The buffet breakfast selections were way above average and beautifully presented.

All in all, we would recommend the hotel for business or pleasure travelers seeking a city-center location.

Overall a smart hotel , even if the rooms are rather small . It is well located and stylish . However , our stay was overshadowed by the sullen and unwelcoming attitude of the hostess in the rooftop bar . We had especially chosen this hotel because it boasted of a rooftop bar but when we went for early evening drinks before going out for dinner we were told that all of the tables were reserved ( by non-residents we suspect ) which wasn't a problem but the hostess struggled to hide what a nuisance we were for trying to get a drink . Shame that such a small thing spoilt our stay .

This hotel is right around the corner from La Scala, the Galleria, the Cathedral and via Spiga.
Just north is the Brera neighborhood, great for restaurants and people watching.
Our room looked out over a vine covered courtyard above the restaurant, so it was quiet as well as charming.
Wonderful service at the front desk and the Concierge was equally helpful.
Highly recommended hotel in a big city.

You air conditioning is controlled by the front desk.

I did not realize that every time you leave the room your air conditioner setting are adjusted to the default position (OFF) (your key needs to go into the slot by the door but is actually controlled by the front desk manager). Therefore I just woke up in a hot sweat and had to call down to lobby to get it turned on again.

This is pathetic.It Summer time in Milan. Its 90 degrees outside.

Do not stay at this cut rate hotel. (Cut rate in the sense its E165 a nite for a non air conditioned room). If you go out touring or to lunch or dinner, that's a lot of phone calls to the front desk.

PATHETIC.

Room Tip: Maybe the Winter it does matter that the rooms are not air conditioned.

If you are looking for a decently priced good hotel in the heart of Milan, then you cant go wrong with Hotel Milano Scala. It may seem pricey, but it is Milan after all. How cheap can it get at the center of the city?

The hotel property is good, parking is available at an extra cost, and the rooms are decently sized & modern. The Duomo is 5-10 mins away, just a couple of streets away. There is plenty to see, shop & eat around. Its a safe bet.
