Hotel Milano Scala is a Green Boutique Hotel that combines sophisticated hospitality and eco-sustainability. We are the first hotel in Milan and one of the few in Italy with ZERO EMISSIONS, thanks to a heat pump systems that exploit geothermal energy and allow the reduction of CO2 emissions to the outside. Furthermore, thanks to highly technological filters that capture polluting agents, the hotel offers its guests a healthier indoor air quality, with more than 80% reduction of fine dust. Thanks to these two features, the hotel has been included in the prestigious National Geographic Traveller UK Earth Collection 2019, which brings together the 36 most eco-friendly hotels in the world (we are the only one in all Italy). We also have a panoramic terrace that offers a 360° view over Milan, where we serve refined green cocktails inspired by the products of the rooftop garden on the sixth floor (vegetables, fruit, aromatic herbs and edible flowers). The hotel is also inspired by classical and Opera music: the tradition of the Teatro alla Scala can be felt everywhere in the hotel, especially during breakfast, always served with a live concert of harp or piano. Our location in the heart of Brera district allows our Guests to reach the most important points of interest in Milan in a few minutes, both on foot and by metro, thanks to the proximity of 3 metro lines (Cairoli MM1 Red Line, Lanza MM2 Green Line, Montenapoleone MM3 Yellow Line).

We stayed for a weekend in December and it was our first visit to Milan. Location was great within walking distance to the main sights and also close to the railway station with trains to the airport. Well-equipped room with focus on sustainability and it also had a small terrace/balcony. Spacious bathroom with all amenities. Breakfast was more on the continental side and lacked a bit of hot foods. But good quality and accompanied by live harp music every morning.

I found searching for a decent hotel at a fair room rate quite difficult in Milan. The big hotels seem expensive and there are so many boutique hotels. I ended up choosing Milano Scala as was going to the opera at La Scala just around the corner. The room was nice but perhaps slightly in need of a renovation but the bathroom was large and nicely appointed. Breakfast area is lovely and the food was fantastic .

The hotel is very centrally located. Easy walking to the Cathedral Square. It is about a 10 minute brisk walk. Lots of dining options around. The rooms are modern and well equipped. The bathrooms are Morden and well equipped as well. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Check-in was very fast and easy. Recommend staying here.

We recently had our daughters wedding in Milan and approximately 23 rooms were booked by our guests at Hotel Milano Scala . Matajis ,the hotel manager, fielded multiple phone calls constantly from all the international guests and always politely catered to the needs of each and everyone with such grace. The rooms were wonderful and comfortable and the roof top bar was the perfect place for us all to hang out. Aperitivo on the rooftop was outstanding! The drinks, the food, the vibe , the view cannot be beat! We couldn’t have chosen a better hotel ! Breakfast downstairs was always fantastic. The variety in assortment of foods offered was impressive as was the service. The location of the hotel also is perfect . It’s in Brera so it’s near the wonderful little cafes and boutiques and art school but also close enough to walk to the Duoma area, La scala etc. Only note is if you are much older the bath tubs are high so getting in the shower( in the bath tub) may be challenging. It wasn’t for us but for my 85 year old parents we requested a handicap room with a shower and no high tub. This really is only an issue if you have mobility problems in which case request a special room like we did for my parents. Last but not least I have to mention I have never been to a hotel where every single staff member is so courteous , friendly and helpful. I almost don’t want to post this review to keep this little boutique hotel a secret so it’s not too hard to get a room next time we’re in Milan . The cat is out the bag though. Just book there, you won’t regret it, Thank you Hotel Milano Scala!!! I’ll never forget how amazing you all were and how the hotel was perfect in every way possible !

Wonderful, convenient, quality hospitality. Milano Scala rates so high for me because it can genuinely tick all the boxes for making a stay in Milan a pleasant and successful time. Friendly, genuinely competent and informative staff, great breakfast, spotless, quiet room, a stone’s throw from much of what we all come to Milan for in the first place. Thanks for a lovely time.

We stayed for a couple of nights. Clean, modern and bright. Good size room. Friendly and helpful staff. Refreshing water in reception on arrival, nice touch after a long journey when it is hot. There was a lovely roof top terrace. The breakfast was good and what a lovely addition, there was a harpist playing. Great location, 5 mins to the Duomo and 5 mins to loads of restaurants

We loved this hotel! We stayed for 6 nights here. First of all, the location is really great: we could walk to most of the places we wanted to visit, e.g., Duomo; Basilica Sant'Ambrogio; Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore; and Museo del Cenacolo Vinciano where one can see "The Last Supper" of da Vinci. The hotel provided us with a room with a full bathtab, which was really great. The room was quite large, clean, and modern. One of the best things about this hotel is that they have a good fitness center, which is relatively rare in Europe. Their breakfast was excellent too with various choices, and moreover they provided pleasant live music by harpists every morning! The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Getting a taxi was quite easy and fast (like within less 10 minutes after we asked the receptionist). We also liked their "green" policy; they are serious about energy efficiency and water consumption. We will definitely come back to this hotel next time when we visit Milan again!
