13.11.2015 WHAT IS THE BEST MILAN ZONE FOR TOURISTS TO STAY? HOTELS IN THE VICINITY OF CENTRAL STATION



The entire Milan can be tentatively split into eight tourist zones and each one has its own specific atmosphere, advantages and disadvantages for tourists to stay.

WHAT IS THE BEST MILAN ZONE FOR TOURISTS TO STAY? HOTELS IN THE VICINITY OF CENTRAL STATION

Today I am going to tell you about Central  Station (Stazione Centrale) zone, the most convenient Milan zone in my opinion and opinions of most my clients. And this is the reason why

Central Station is a Milan sightseeing attraction on its own and this huge building is distinguished by quite a weird architecture – fusion of Liberty, Art Deco styles and fascist architecture.

Yes, yes it was Mussolini’s order in the early 1930s to modify the original building design to make Central Station look more monumental that was supposed to embody power and might of the fascist regime. In the course of time many symbols of the fascism were removed, but some of them have remained to now. Today this is not only the second biggest railway station in Italy (the first one is Roma Termine in Rome) from where you can start for any destination of Italy as well as go on one-day trips to the nearest towns of Milan (soon a detailed post), but a huge mall containing more 100 shops and fashion boutiques, 30 cafes and restaurants and also middle size supermarket. So if you have free time while waiting for train or bus, you won’t get bored at Milan Stazione Centrale/Central Station!

And here are all advantages of staying in Central Station zone:

  • The place is very easy to get to/from Malpensa airport, Malpensa Express suburban train and Malpensa Shuttle bus depart Central Station every 20 minutes.
  • The vicinity and convenient transportation connection to central Milan.
  • The vicinity of corso Buenos Aires street, one the main streets for economic shopping in Milan, and also one of the longest shopping street in Europe which is more 1600 m long. So there is much one can afford!

  • A great number of inexpensive cafés, bars and restaurants for any taste and cuisine. By the way I can recommend those, missing soups in Milan, visiting soup café  La Zupperia at the address:  via Fara 33, not far from Central Station. You can always enjoy 3-4 various soups from the menu (which is rare in Italy) at €4-4.5 per portion. The café is open for lunch only.
  • And the most important thing is this is the location of numerous inexpensive, but very nice hotels and below are the best ones of them in opinions of my clients:

Bagliori hotel – very good-natured staff, strategic location between Central Station and corso Buenos Aires street and marvelous patio make it one of the most convenient hotels in Milan.

There is another nice and inexpensive hotel nearby: Due Giardini hotel, free Wi-Fi and square breakfast; plus convenient location and of course patio!

Salerno hotel – very companionable staff, clean and cozy rooms (I personally stopped by)

The Best Hotel – convenient location, quiet green zone and marvelous patio, where you can have breakfast weather permitting (breakfast is delicious and square).

And below are the hotels about 200 m away from Central Station square on Napo Torriani and Boscovich streets,

and where you can have a bite on the run and buy gastonimic Milan souveniours at very acceptable prices.

So the hotels in this zone are:

Berna hotel   - the best one in opinions of my all clients who stayed in the hotel.

Mennini hotel

Bolzano hotel

Canova hotel

Atlantic hotel

Bernina hotel

Garda hotel

Flora hotel

Idea hotel

Augustus hotel

The disadvantage of the zone is it is not the safest for late evening walks.

I wish you a nice trip!
