About Milan

In spite of being home to some incredible art, including The Last Supper, and some incredible museums and architecture, Milan isn’t really a tourist city. Shoppers, foodies, art fans, and football, fashion and opera-lovers adore it, but it’s not quite beautiful. About 80 per cent of the Italian HQs of international companies are based here, or in the immediate surrounding area, so it makes sense that there are a lot of business hotels in Milan, and that the best places to stay in Milan are geared towards executives travelling on high end expense accounts. Milan’s other main claim to fame, design, is really well represented amongst its hotels too, and Milan has some of the hippest, coolest design hotels in Italy.

It sounds expensive doesn’t it, but we didn’t mean to scare you, some of Milan’s best design hotels are actually quite affordable, and we’ve included some of the best B&Bs in Milan on our list too. And some of the best places to stay in Milan if you want to eat and drink well of an evening.

Where to Stay - Which Neighbourhood?

  • ‘Duomo’ means more than just the cathedral in Milan, it’s the area around the gorgeous Gothic cathedral too, also called the Centro Storico, and includes the famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is the oldest shopping mall in Europe, and one of the most famous spots in Milan. This is also where you’ll find La Scala, and several of the city’s principal museums and galleries. This area is ideal if you’re only here for a short trip, it’s easy to get around and there are lots of places to eat and drink, but it is one of the most touristy parts of a fairly un-touristy city.
  • If you’re here to see The Last Supper, it’s in the Sant’Ambrogio area, close to the Corso Magenta, with its trendy wine bars and chic shopping. This is an affluent neighbourhood, so it can be quite expensive.
  • Brera is one of the best places to stay in Milan if you want be close to the fashion capital of this fusion capital. Brera is trendy, with an arty feel, and is one of the prettiest looking parts of Milan, with elegant buildings lining pedestrianised streets, and housing art galleries and antique stores as well as boutiques and fashion houses. This is also where you’ll find the charming San Marco Church, the medieval Castello Sforzesco, which opens onto the city’s largest park, the Park Sempione, Napoleon’s Arch of Peace, plus a couple of fantastic art galleries: the Pinacoteca de Brera, and the Galleria Civica d’Arte Modern, for example. And there’s a great Sunday market.
  • Smaller, but also very pretty, in an Art Nouveau way, is Porta Venezia, which is known for its neo-Romanesque Natural History Museum, multicultural vibe and gay community.
  • You might not know about Milan’s canal’s. It does have a few, and they make a lovely backdrop for some of Milan’s most romantic hotels. Navigli is the name of the area, and it’s also a place to come for a drink and a stroll of an evening, or for a spot of browsing in the vintage and antique stores. The very best place for a drink has got to be the Naviglio Grande, which is the largest canal, and it’s lined with great places to stop for a break in your explorations. Navigli is also a good choice if you’re looking for a hotel close to lively nightlife.
  • One of the things people always say about Milan is that it's modern, and to see, and stay in, the very newest skyscrapers, or contemporary buildings, you should stay in Porta Nuova. There are still a few 19th century buildings, but they’re now outnumbered by more contemporary ones, including some which are quite space age looking. Isola is next door, and it’s hipster, and more residential.
  • Fiera and San Siro, to the northwest of the city centre, are among the best neighbourhoods for families. They have lots of parks, and quiet, pleasant streets lined with cafes and shops. And you’re just a few stops on the subway from the centre of town. This is also the home of A.C. Milan.
  • If you’re here to sample all the culinary delights of Milan, Porta Romana might be one of the best places to stay. It’s packed with great restaurants, bars and cafes, and it's in a good location, between the historic centre of town and some of the trendier areas. Porta Vittoria is an up-and-coming version. Milan has the second largest number of Michelin stars of any Italian city, so there are plenty of good places to eat and discover the local cuisine.
  • If you’re looking for one of the best value places to stay in Milan you could try the Cita Studi area, which is the student quarter, so lively and culturally vibrant, and home to part of the Corso Buenos Aires, the Modern Art Gallery and plenty of great, affordable pizzerias.

While bargains in this city are thin on the ground, a handful of the best places to stay in Milan are delightful small hotels where it's not de rigeur to be dressed in head-to-toe black Prada crowned with a massive pair of dark glasses; we have listed our favourites below.

The Best Places to Stay in Milan

For a city break

  • Milano Scala is a mid-sized contemporary hotel in a traditional Milanese palazzo. It’s simple on the outside, but inside it’s quite plush, with parquet floors, modern art and private balconies overlooking an internal courtyard. We like it for a city break because of the size, 62 rooms, and the Brera location, but it's also got an excellent restaurant, a wellness centre and meeting rooms.
  • Smaller, arguably hipper, and super close to the Duomo, The Gray is a great pick if you’re only able to be in Milan for a short time. This design hotel has just 21 rooms and suites, which are stylish and simple, with plenty of the sort of style this city is best known for. Two of the suites have private gyms and a jacuzzi. The Gray has its own fine dining restaurant, and a chic bar on a roof terrace, so no need to go out.
  • Also close to the Duomo, but on the La Scala side, the Hotel Spadari al Duomo is another of our picks for a Milanese city break. It’s a good size, with 40 rooms and suites, and the decor is stylish and memorable, very Milan. This hotel has all the mod. cons., but no restaurant. They do serve breakfast, though.
  • If your idea of a city break to Milan involves quite a bit of shopping the Palazzo Segreti may be the best hotel for you. With its 18 chic, yet minimal rooms, it represents the modern elegance that a number of the city's fashion brands are famous for. This is a hotel with good lighting and smart use of space. There’s no restaurant, but you’re surrounded by dining options, as well as the shopping from the door we promised.
  • Close to Milan’s central station, the LaGare Hotel is a glass pillar, rising from a basement spa, with a hydromassage Roman bath, sauna, Turkish bath and a salt cave, to the roof terrace, which overlooks the Port Nuova district. There are 141 slickly designed rooms in muted colours, which are offset by colourful pieces of Murano glass. The LaGare was built in 2015 as a business hotel, and it’s got everything you need for that, including sitting rooms with a range of international plug sockets.

Milan’s Hippest Hotels

  • When it opened Straf was declared Italy's most avant-garde hotel, and it’s still considered something of a design stunner several years on. Behind the classical 1880s façade is an ultra contemporary minimalist space, with a very industrial feel — think polished concrete, burnished brass, glass, iron and black stone. Come here to rub shoulders with the cool crowd of fashionistas, media-types and designers et al, who love the interiors.
  • Famously converted from a perfume factory in the heart of Milan’s design district, the Magna Pars Suites are a collection of 39 suites, all decorated with extremely high design standards. There’s a lot of white-on-white here, with white art too, and just a few coloured pieces of furniture. You’re minutes from the Via Torona, so it’s a popular spot for models and fashionistas, and rooms are well set up for that sort of crowd, with shelves of fashion books, professional hair dryers and impressive toiletries. There’s also an excellent restaurant, overseen by a Michelin-starred chef.
  • The Hotel Viu is an impressive, modern glass building: tall, with balconies dripping in greenery, in a hip district edging on trendy Isola and Porta Nuova. It has 124 rooms and suites; they’re compact, but beautifully designed, with plenty of natural materials and neutral colours: think wood inlay and marble bathrooms. There’s a buzzy cocktail bar on the roof, as well as Milan’s only hotel rooftop pool, as well as a gym and library, and a restaurant. This is also our most affordable hotel in the hip hotels in Milan category.
  • The Yard’s retro sports theme might be a bit of a surprise in Milan, but it’s sophisticated and it's fun. The 32 rooms and suites are all playful and unique, and certainly very memorable. There are two restaurants (both excellent), and its bar is hip and lively. There’s even a vintage barbers on site.

The Best Luxury Hotels in Milan

  • Several of Milan’s fashion houses have their own hotels, and Bulgari is the first one we’re listing. If you’re familiar with their wares you might be surprised by its simplicity, for here the glamour is very much understated, with a feel of 1930s minimalism: black and white marble, beautiful wood flooring, and neutral colours in the 58 rooms and suites. As well as being one of our favourite luxury hotels in Milan, Bulgari is also the only hotel within the old city walls to have its own garden. Of course the food is excellent too.
  • Armani has a hotel too, the Armani Hotel, which is a similar extension of the brand, but with a real focus on the elegance and modern lines of their designs. It comes across as fairly minimalist in the 95 rooms and suites, but with creative touches, like a discreet crocodile print embossed design in the linens. The spa is gorgeous, and the restaurant is too, with fantastic city views.
  • We’ve covered the fact that Milan doesn’t have a lot of beautiful old buildings, so her grande dame hotels are more contemporary than in other Italian cities. By Milan’s standards we think the Grand Hotel et de Milan qualifies as a grande dame, with its luxurious details of parquet flooring, heavy fabrics and its mix of antiques and contemporary design pieces, which mirrors the mix of old and new art on the walls. It’s also close to La Scala.
  • For a sense of traditional Italian luxury try the Principe di Savoia, a large, five star hotel with bright coloured silk inlay on the walls, heavy drapes, painted pillars and ceilings, grand chandeliers, antiques, fountains and a fabulous pool with a wonderful mosaic dolphin design. There are 301 rooms and suites here, plus an opulent bar, high-end restaurant, a luxurious spa and gym, and a free shuttle service to pretty much anywhere you want to go.

Milan’s Most Romantic Hotels

  • Brera’s Palazzo Parigi is large and luxurious as well as being romantic, with the sort of grand public spaces that are both welcoming and memorable: think high ceilings, beautiful marble inlay flooring, ornate cornices and huge windows. There are 98 large, light rooms with spectacular city views, an indoor pool, spa and gym, and two elegant restaurants.
  • With decor that’s simpler than many of the hotels on this list, the Elizabeth Lifestyle Hotel caught our Guru’s eye because of its Corso Italia location and its secret garden. And it made the list here because it’s got some lovely details, and really comfortable rooms, that are fresh, charming and comfortable. There are plenty of nice touches too, like the custom-made scent and the contemporary art prints.

For families

  • The Chateau Monfort is a five-star, fairytale themed hotel jus s short walk from the Piazza San Babila and Milan’s famous designer boutiques. Expect period features, an elegant wine bar and classic Italian cuisine, but with fun decor like four-poster beds with Nutcracker soldiers for the posts, and heart shaped dining chairs. This is the kind of hotel in which to take afternoon tea. And which your kids will remember forever.

Milan’s Best Townhouse Conversions

  • As in other cities, some of Milan’s most elegant townhouses, which would once have been home to affluent merchants or the local gentry, have been converted into hotels. And one of our favourites is the Antica Locanda dei Mercanti, which was a merchant’s house, and is now a truly charming, 15 room hotel in Brera. Inside the decor has a country chic feel, with wood floors and plenty of creamy colours. The best rooms are the suites on the top floor, which have wrought iron four poster beds and private terraces.

For great value

  • Even at the most affordable end of the scale, Milan offers style and detail. Home BB is a two room contemporary offering with quirky features, a pillow menu and a choice of bathroom linen. They do an excellent in-room breakfast too.
  • My Bed is a stylish option in the heart of Milan. There are just 12 spacious rooms, super simply decorated, with private balconies. And you’re perfectly located for the best bars, cafes, shops and restaurants.
  • Casa Titta is like the home of a stylish and worldly friend, who has four individually designed rooms furnished with period pieces and treasures from their travels. There’s a delicious breakfast included in the price. It’s outside the centre of town, but still only ten minutes to the Duomo on the subway.

Prefer an Apartment or Private Villa?

  • If you’d prefer to stay in an apartment or private villa we recommend you visit our online partner Booking.com.

Travel Information

  • Milan has two airports, Malpensa and Linate. Malpensa is the main international hub. Linate is only seven kilometres from the centre of town. You can also arrive in Milan on the train from Turin, Venice, Naples, Rome, Florence, Zurich, Pairs, Barcelona, Vienna, Geneva etc..
  • If you want to hire a car we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars.
  • Bearing in mind that most places, tourist destinations included, are closed Mondays, and that Milan shuts up shop for much of August, this is a city you can visit pretty much all year round. Summer is hot, Christmas is bustling and charming, and spring and autumn are times when locals are busy with work, so you’ll mostly see visitors on the streets. During the fashion festivals Milan heaves. April, May, September and October are probably the best months to visit if you’re looking for pleasant weather and small queues.

Still not sure which to book?

  • You could widen your to include all the best places to stay in Lombardy, consider staying in Como on Lake Como, which is 50 minutes from the centre of Milan, or in Monza, home of the Italian Grand Prix and just 10 minutes by train.
  • Alternatively, you could contact one of our friendly Gurus for personalised advice.
