Milano Centrale is Milan’s main train station and one of the most convenient and affordable areas to stay in if you look for a great compromise between the distance from the city center and the train station. The hotels here are mostly modern and well equipped and adapted for frequent travelers. If you are in Milan just for a day or two, Milano Centrale is your ideal location. Why?

Why book a hotel near Milano Centrale?

What might surprise you is that you will often find the best and most well-equipped hotels right around Milano Centrale. The hotels here are often tailored for frequent travelers, businessmen, or celebrities who wish to stay as close to the city center as possible but at the same time enjoy the proximity to the train station and airport connections in case of early/late travel.

If you love to move from a train (or plane) directly to the hotel, this location is for you. Bonus, most shuttle buses and trains to the airports leave from Milano Centrale.

Please note that Milano Centrale is often considered not the best area to be walking around at night. I would recommend you to avoid crossing the big square or turning into empty streets at night. But these are recommendations for any big city train station. If you do not plan to travel or move around late at night/early morning, you will enjoy the area as it is 5 minutes from Duomo by metro.


How much does a night at a hotel near Milano Centrale cost?

That depends. For a luxury hotel in the area of Milano Centrale, you can pay up to 500 euros per night, whereas more budget hotels can be found for as little as 100 euros per night.

Compared to the other areas of Milan, booking a hotel near Milano Centrale is relatively cheaper.

2. ME Milan II Duca

A bit more on the pricey side, ME Milan II Duca is for you if you fancy luxury or wish to treat yourself to a nice hotel every here and then. This is a chic hotel, bathing in designs of Italian architect Also Rossi, featuring a contemporary stylish interior equipped with modern technology. 

Fancy an aperitivo? There is a sunset rooftop terrace with daily DJ sets, or, if you wish to stay closer to the ground, a unique Giardino del Duca Bar, serving cocktails and other drinks.

ME Milan II Duca is located a bit further from Milano Centrale, at Milano Repubblica, one of the fanciest modern neighborhoods you could stay in. You will be 1 metro stop from Milano Centrale and 3 stops from Duomo. What else could you wish for?
