This was my second time staying at Hotel Milano Scala. I was unable to take advantage of a lot of its services because I was there for one night for an early morning flight the next day, but the location is within close walking distance of the lovely Brera neighborhood, the Duomo and surrounding tourist attractions (La Scala; Galleria Vittorio Emanuele; shopping) and yet removed from the tourist throngs.
This time around I was in an extremely peaceful and quiet Superior room with a balcony overlooking a courtyard. The room fits a queen size bed, a desk and night-table, with a small entryway with a chair/cushion, but not much bigger than that. In the past I was facing the Via dell'Orso and it was still pretty quiet with very little traffic. The rooms are very clean and the decor reflects exactly what you think it would: La Scala. My room included black and white vintage photos of audience scenes from La Scala and a poster from a production of Salome. Service was quick and efficient. The hotel is very environmentally friendly, and not just in the use and changing of towels and bed linens. Bath products are green and no plastic is used (that I could find).
This hotel, including its general areas, feels like an escape from the city. I'm sure I will stay there again.
