Set in four 18th-century buildings a block from the La Scala opera house, the Mandarin Oriental Milan is as glamorous as the designer boutiques that line nearby Via Montenapoleone. The interiors are the brainchild of Milanese architect Antonio Citterio, and they bring together classic Italian furnishings and Asian-inspired touches, like bonsai trees and a dedicated treatment room in the spa for Thai massages. The rooms start at 430 square feet, and all feature wooden floors, custom-made furniture, Egyptian cotton linens and Nespresso machines. The marble bathrooms have underfloor heating, twin sinks and amenities from Panpuri. For fancy fine dining, the main restaurant serves traditional Italian dishes and Milanese specialties either in the 1950s-style dining room or in the gorgeous tree-lined courtyard (weather permitting). For light bites, head to the Bar Bistro, a stylish lounge with a striking marble floor and houndstooth armchairs (don’t miss the jazz brunch on Sundays). The mammoth spa has an indoor swimming pool, steam cabins, a fitness center and a whirlpool, and offers treatments based on ancient Roman bathing rituals.
In the Area
The hotel is just five minutes from the powerhouse shops that line Via Montenapoleone (“Montenapo” to locals), such as Giorgio Armani, Narciso Rodriguez and Alberta Ferretti. The Teatro alla Scala (more commonly known as La Scala) is one of the world’s great opera houses. See a performance, explore the museum or take a guided tour of the set and costume workshops. For the opportunity to see Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, be sure to buy tickets far in advance — only 25 people are admitted every 15 minutes. And to continue the culture fix, Milan’s Castello Sforzesco houses 12 museums within its walls, covering a range of subjects such as art, science and design. There are lots of excellent coffee spots in the city, but two standouts include the in-house café at the Giorgio Armani superstore on Via Manzoni and Cova, Milan’s oldest café, dating back to 1817.
How to Get There
Top notch hotel in best shopping area in Milan. Rooms are clean and classic. Walking distance to may different areas as well. The concierge was top notch and did not fail with their amazing restaurant recommendations. Not cheap but worth it.
Tuck in a side road of the main Scala Ave is what I consider to be the charm of Milan . Mandarin has fine an excellent job with the renovation. The rooms are bright and modern . A lot of thought has font into making the discerning traveller notice the difference . This is the first time I see a wooden toothbrush , very much in trend with being Eco Friendly. The service is impeccable . The location just a stone throw away from the Main shopping area yet very private and quite . A perfect luxurious hideaway for the discerning traveller . Well done Mandarin Oreintal

The MO takes comfort and service to a level of the unimaginable. From perfectly appointed rooms: to sheets, pillows and mattresses that have you reluctantly getting out of bed: to croissant that put the French to shame. The staff are passionate and efficient to a degree that makes you think they are in your head predicting your every need. I've always had a dream to live in a hotel for one year, if I could it would be the MO Milan. Can I crowd fund this dream?
