The bright and charming Charly Hotel is run by Carla, Franca and the rest of the friendly family (including their dog Snoopy, who keeps lazy watch over the lobby). Its convenient location and reasonable rates are certainly pluses, but this warm two-star spot is much more than a budget hotel—you’ll feel like you’re coming home here.
Attention to design is evident throughout the Charly Hotel. Even the light fixtures and art posters in the 20 mid-sized guestrooms have been carefully selected. Floral wallpaper and shades of rose and seafoam green lend a “country kitchen” feel, and all rooms are outfitted with soundproof windows, air conditioning, TV and phone.
Several rooms overlook the expansive garden out back, where guests are welcome to enjoy breakfast (included in the room rate) or simply lounge about. (We managed to lose ourselves for a few sweet moments among the flowers.)
Some rooms have private bathrooms, while the cheapest rooms share facilities. Both shared and private baths are mid-sized and well-maintained.
The Charly Hotel’s common areas sport an elaborate burlesque aesthetic, replete with vintage chandeliers, vivid red carpet and Art-Nouveau banisters.
The hotel’s location, on a quiet street just off the buzzing Buenos Aires shopping strip (and within walking distance of the central station), is another big plus.
Wi-Fi is available for an additional charge.

Central station and Buenos Aires, Milan, Italy
About the Charly neighborhood
Milan’s main train station is not located in the prettiest part of town, and you may spot a few (or several) unsavory characters around here. That said, the area between the station and Corso Buenos Aires is plenty safe, and it’s home to several perfectly adequate hotels—many with rock-bottom rates. You’re also, of course, well situated for getting around the city, and Corso Buenos Airesis home to some of the city’s best shopping.
