Milan is a popular weekend destination over the Christmas and New Year period. Piazza Duomo, the main square in front of the stunning cathedral, is the location of the biggest Christmas market in the city. There are a number of smaller neighbourhood markets too but we suggest staying in the centre at one of our recommended hotels near Milan Christmas Market and the Duomo.

Even though Milan is a relatively expensive destination, all budgets are catered to so you can easily stick to a low budget or spoil yourself with a little luxury. The choice is yours. If you’re on a budget, you might need to stay a little further from the centre or you can choose an apartment in Milan which are often more affordable than hotels.
Top PickRoom Mate Giulia
Address: Silvio Pellico 4, Milan City Centre, Italy
One of the most stylish and comfortable boutique hotels in Milan is also perfectly located near Milan Christmas Market. Room Mate Giulia is in a stunningly restored 19th-century building and the interior is inspired by mid-century design. The hotel was renovated using locally sourced materials such as terracotta from Lombardy. Thoughtful service complements the incredible location. This is one of the most sustainable hotels in Milan as they use 100% renewable electricity, they don’t use single-use plastics or miniature toiletries and they invest in local community projects. I highly recommend staying in this hotel in Milan.Check Availability

Another excellent boutique hotel near Piazza Duomo, The Street is a 5-minute walk away. The unusual interior design is light and bright with minimalist features and wall artwork promoting historic Milan. This hotel is excellent value for money, especially when considering the quality of the service and the ideal central location. The hotel has open green space which you can take advantage of if you get lucky with the weather. Most food provided by the hotel is locally sourced and organic.

If you would prefer the additional space and privacy of an apartment in Milan, Aparthotel Duomo would be absolutely perfect. Located on a small backstreet just behind the Duomo, you’ll have the incredible experience of feeling like you’re living in Milan. The apartments are clean, tidy with a simple design and light colour scheme. The apartment with a spa also has a view of the beautiful Duomo.
Hotel Gran Duca Di York
Address: Via Moneta 1/A, Milan City Centre, Italy
If you would prefer a more traditional, Italian design, the Hotel Gran Duca Di York offers exactly that. There are lots of tiles, marble and yellow wallpaper. While perhaps not a budget hotel, this is definitely a more affordable option and is excellent value for money given the location and excellent reviews. The hotel is 400 metres from the Christmas market.
Hotel Spadari Al Duomo
Address: Hotel Spadari Al Duomo Via Spadari 11, Milano
Another stylish and highly rated hotel is Hotel Spadari Al Duomo. Rooms are decorated with paintings by young contemporary artists. The hotel is one street from Piazza Duomo so it is very close to the Christmas market as well as being in the heart of the fashion and shopping district. You can walk to all of the incredible sights of Milan from here. It’s the ideal city break location with everything at your doorstep.
Milan is a popular destination all year round. It’s not just tourists visiting but conference visitors, business people, fashion and design workers. It’s a big city with a lot going on. There are many hotels in Milan but with so many visitors, the best hotels can book out quickly. I suggest booking your hotel as far in advance as possible to ensure a convenient stay in Milan.
