Are you heading to Milan Fashion Week (Feb. 21-27, 2018), but looking to avoid breaking the bank? We’ve rounded up some of the most stylish hotels in Milan, and found you some great alternative options. Here’s how to do Milan fashion week on a budget:
1. Bulgari Milan versus Senato Hotel Milano
The Bulgari Milan is a decadent hotel that’s set in a former 18th-century palace. It sits in a prime location, just a short walk from the famous Milan Cathedral. The hotel comes complete with a mosaic swimming pool and a spa with gold finishing touches. It’s a top hotel choice for the elite, which is evident from the regular line of sports cars parked in the hotel’s valet. The Bulgari Milan’s unique selling point is its historic garden that is thought to date back to the 13th century when the building was used as a monastery. If you’ve got the cash to spare, book the Bulgari Milan from $995 a night.
It’s hard to believe the Senato Hotel Milano is a budget-friendly option, with chic black and white themed interior, marble flooring, and an incredibly stylish decor. However, you really can live the celebrity lifestyle without breaking the bank. Like the Bulgari Hotel, the Senato Hotel is also housed in a historic building from the early 1900s. It’s near to the prime fashion district, and the top shops such as Gucci and Louis Vuitton are just a short walk from the property. Guest always comment on the hotel’s chic Italian design and comfy beds. Book the Senato Hotel Milano from $218 a night.
2. Palazzo Parigi versus Bianca Maria Palace
With a Romanesque swimming pool surrounded by pillars, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most elite hotels in Milan. The hotel is located in the heart of the fashion district and features an elegant interior with marble flooring, chandeliers, and high ceilings. The luxurious bedrooms feature enormous beds and balconies. To top it off, the hotel has an onsite patisserie cafe, where you can indulge in Italian sweet treats and delicious coffee. Book a room at the Palazzo Parigi from $520 a night.
Meanwhile, the Bianca Maria Palace is a great, budget-friendly alternative. The hotel features an equally elegant interior, with stylish rooms. It’s got an on-trend, stunning spiral staircase running through the middle of the building — making it one of the most stylish budget options in Milan. Guests love the hotel’s impeccable concierge service and location, which is right by the metro and just a few stops from the main sights such as the Milan Cathedral.

3. Four Seasons Milano versus Spice Hotel Milano
The Four Seasons Milano sits in a 15th-century building that was once a convent. The hotel features a stunning interior, with high ceilings and ornate detailing. The rooms offer a luxury hotel experience at its finest, with enormous beds and high ceilings. The hotel features a beautiful landscaped garden and courtyard where guests can unwind with a coffee or glass of limoncello. It’s located in the heart of the shopping district, right by the top designer stores. Book the Four Seasons Milano from $875 a night.
If you’d prefer a cheaper alternative, why not book a room at the chic Spice Hotel. It’s an awesome budget option, with rooms that are just a fraction of the price of the Four Seasons.
