With a shabby entryway and a gruff (but quick to warm up) staff, the one-star Hotel del Sole may initially be off-putting. Nonetheless, this budget gem boasts a prime location, great rates and a sunny quality that is strictly Italian.
The Hotel del Sole’s 17 guestrooms are a little of this and that. Crown molding adorns otherwise sparsely decorated walls, recalling a once stately home. Furniture is spare. Stiff sheets and green coverlets cover dorm-style beds. Polished terra cotta floors and miniature throw rugs add some charm.
All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, soundproof windows, a TV and phone. The huge balconies available in some rooms conjure memories (real or imagined) of summers abroad and late nights spent with good friends and cheap wine.
Most rooms have private bathrooms, but some triples share facilities. Both private and shared bathrooms are spacious and clean.
The Hotel del Sole is located just off the bustling Buenos Aires shopping strip, a 10-minute walk to the train station. It may not be the fanciest, but it offers all the basics at a great price.
Breakfast and Wi-Fi are both available for an additional charge.

About the Del Sole 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.
