You don’t really advertise a hotel with the death of a prominent resident, but in this case it was Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi who passed away here in 1901. This throws, after all, a light on the type of clientele one can expect here (NO!, They are not all dead!). The Grand Hotel is a stone’s throw away from the famous Scala, the Milanese opera house. Famous singers, conducters and - well - composers are a normal sight at the lobby of this charming relict of the 19th century.
