An easy walk to both the main train station and Corso Buenos Aires for shopping, Hotel Mediolanum Milan features a clean, modern design with bright rooms and quirky art. The 51 rooms have boldly coloured wall accents, paintings, chairs and bedspreads, along with desks and parquet floors; all come with mini-bars and air conditioning. Controls in the superior and deluxe rooms let you adjust the colours of the lights depending on your mood to “balance your chakras”—a fun touch. The included buffet breakfast offers a good selection to start your day off right.
Though there aren’t any must-see sights nearby, the area is convenient for traveling elsewhere in Italy or for getting around the city—besides the train station, there’s easy access to the metro, trams and buses. You can also stroll to the Corso Como area for more trendy eating and shopping options (about a 20-minute walk).
