Who are we? EuroCheapo is a guide to budget hotels in Milan and throughout Europe. Our editors have been reviewing cheap hotels all over Europe since 2001, always with an eye on recommending only hotels that are clean, central and cheap.

Milan can get pricey quickly, especially if you happen to be visiting during fashion shows or other expo dates. During the rest of the year, however, the city can be a welcoming place for Cheapos, especially given the number of small, family-run hotels and pensions in town.
