Staying in the center of Milan can be a little (very!) expensive, so for those on a tighter budget, I suggest you choose a hotel a little further away, but close to a train and/or metro station to facilitate travel both within the city and to other regions. And, with that in mind, today I bring you a short list with some suggestions for hotels close to one of the busiest stations in Milan: the Central Station.

The ticket costs €2.20 and is valid for 90 minutes; if you prefer the one valid for 24 hours, you will pay €7.60, and for 3 consecutive days, €13.00. You can buy in loco, directly at the ticket office or at the totems available at the stations.
What is the big advantage of staying close to a central station?
The ease to move around! The central stations of cities that offer trains and subways have options for moving both within the city and outside, such as other nearby cities and/or regions. Therefore, if you intend to visit other locations and will use the train, staying close to a central station can be a great deal!
The same goes for those who intend to use the subway: the central stations have transfers for all the main lines, which facilitates the journey to important or more distant tourist attractions. Discover our Section: Traveling in Italy by Train.
Is it worth staying outside the historic center?
If you want to save money, yes! This is because the more central hotels, which offer you the possibility to get to know the city more quickly, cost a little more, HOWEVER, remember that the cost-benefit will also depend on the days you will spend there, as well as the places you want to know. Find out here: How to save on accommodation in Italy.
Even a little further away from the center, you can choose to take a walk to the nearest tourist attractions; if you prefer, you can walk and return by subway, for example.
Advantages of staying outside the Historic Center
One of the great advantages of staying a little further away from the center is avoiding the ZTLs! If you have a car, it is good to remember that traffic in some areas of the city is restricted and, choosing to stay further away, you can avoid getting a fine and, normally, hotels offer customer parking.
