If Italian cities were people, Milan would be the sophisticated older sister. While the rest of Italy gets by on a large amount of chaos and a lot of dolce vita, Milan takes business seriously and keeps the money coming in. Though not as flamboyant as the South, Milan has plenty of treasures on offer, both in terms of historical relics and up-to-the-minute fashion. It can be an accordingly expensive place to visit, though budget accommodation can be found, with occasional unmissable offers on glitzy 4-star hotels. Milan’s areas of interest are focussed within the centre, but even within this fairly small area, each of the districts below offers something slightly different.
Milan’s stunning and extravagant cathedral provides the centrepiece, with the rest of the city extending out in all directions from it. For this reason alone, it’s the perfect place to be based, with easy access to everywhere else in the city, not to mention the wealth of attractions surrounding the Piazza del Duomo. For those in search of Milan’s old-fashioned glamour, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is a must-see; a truly beautiful shopping arcade, housing some of Milan’s oldest and most venerable shops, cafes and restaurants. The hotels closest to the Piazza tend to be rather expensive, but if you fan out a little further, budget options do become available.
If the area around the Duomo is Milan’s historic centre, Brera is the undisputed fashion district. Exclusive, independent boutiques sell high-quality leather products, Milan’s fashion signature. As you might expect, the fashion industry here supports an arty café culture. This is Italy at its most stylish: a place to see and be seen, to rub shoulders with the fashion pack, to casually sip espresso and watch the world go by. Hotels are mid-range rather than budget, but for the desirable, central location and the classy touches, they offer value for money.
Milan’s university district contains the bulk of the budget accommodation, with everything from charming old-fashioned B&Bs to modern boutique hotels. It has a thriving nightlife (as you might expect from a student area) and a good range of Italian trattorie. Trams provide quick connections to the centre, and if you’re based in the southern part of the district, the Duomo is only a 30-minute walk away.
If you like nothing better than up-and-coming destinations, Zona Tortona is the place to be. This south-west district of Milan is the city’s design centre and is hotly tipped to be the next big thing. Free-thinking creative types reside here, and several of the streets are treated like exhibition venues for the latest design trends, particularly in design fair season. It’s situated within the Navigli district, which is popular with students and young people and full of bars and restaurants. Though many parts of the district are a little run-down, Zona Tortona is on the way up and truly creative.

Slatkis_88 Very nice place to stay at and very spaceaous. It was a little far from the city but that was not a problem because the tram line number two was just outside the partement and it leaves ever 7 minutes. The service was very good. The owners were very nice and helpfull with whatever you needed. We would definitely come back. We recomend this apartment! A&Z

dimitrioum It was difficult to find despite directions given. There needed to be better signs! Otherwise, we were quite happy with the services provided. Excellent staff.

michel7301 Located a bit off-centre, bit of noise between the rooms, not finished with all the rooms yet. But all this is largely compensated by the enormous friendly service, nice and clean rooms, calm neighbourhood and the fact that the value for money here simply out-competes hotels at double the rate. Do Milan? Go Rossovino!

justinbrys (ENG) The hotel is nice. Clean. It is located near the Centrale station,but not so close to the centre of the city. The tram number 33 leaves you at the door and you can catch this tram at Piazza Loreto (green underground line number 2). The price is correct. The shower on my floor only had lute warm water. The breakfat is an excellent buffet for 3'50 Euros extra p.p. The air conditioning is an extra of 7 Euros per day, too expensive considering that it gets very hot in Milan. It has internet service. It is close to the pizzeria "STOP" in Piazza Loreto, famous for its huge pizzas. (ESP) El hotel es bonito. Limpio. Esta cerca de la estacion Centrale pero más alejado del centro de la ciudad. El tranvia 33 te deja en la puerta y este se coge en la Piazza Loreto (linea verde de metro numero 2). El precio es adecuado. El desayuno es un excellente buffet por 3'50 Euros p.p. El aire acondicionado se cobra a parte y son 7 Euros por dia, exagerado considerando el calor que hace en Milan. Tiene cyber. Esta cerca de la pizzeria "STOP" (Piazza Loreto), famoso por sus enormes pizzas. La duche que usé no tenia agua caliente, solo templada.
