An insider’s guide to Milan best 3 and 4 star hotels. Selection based on value for money, guest reviews, location and “Milanese design”.
Milan best 3 and 4 star hotels – locations
You can find 3 and 4 stars hotels everywhere in Milan. However, I decided to focus on hotels located in 3 areas:
- Central station: in case you will spend only one or two nights in Milan, on your way to Como lake, Venice or Florence, it really makes sense for you to stay close to the station. You can find some good and reasonably priced hotels there, and easily get to Milan city center by Metro (just 4 stops).
- Milan city center: sleeping here will allow you to visit most of the city by walking. These are also the ancient neighborhoods, full of charm. And, least but not last, perfect places for shopping. A number of really good hotels are available in the 200 €/night range, I selected the ones I know and with the highest client ratings
- The Navigli district: this is a bustling area, perfect for dining but also to get the last trends in art and design. Note that it’s not very close to the city center, you will need to take buses or Metro to get to the very city center.

Milan best 3 and 4 star hotels – room rates
The rates reported in this post refer to July 2018. Note that room rates (as well as availability) can vary a lot in Milan, that’s why I’m providing a range. Rates will skyrocket during the most important city events, such as the Settimana della Moda (Fashion week in September) or the Salone del Mobile (Furniture exhibition in April), while rates usually collapse during holiday periods and summer. Therefore, it’s always worthwhile to check the web for promotions, I personally use Booking.com to spot the best bargain.
