Milan is an expensive place to stay, with most Milan hotels geared for business travellers with expense accounts. However, hotels are usually efficient and comfortable. Budget options do exist, mostly located around the Stazione Centrale area (not a great neighbourhood, but acceptable and convenient for travellers). The cheaper hotels are always in demand, and the smarter hotels are often full with visitors to conferences and trade fairs, so you should definitely try to book in advance.
On this page you will find recommendations for mid-range and budget hotels, from three-star down to more basic two-star options. If you’re looking for a more up-market option, we have a special page for Milan luxury hotels.
