Hotel in Milan near main train station Jul 20, 2002
I stopped off in Milan for a day en route from Verona to Finale Ligure and was looking for something within walking distance of the main train station, but not too close to it either. I found what I was looking for in this regard at the Hotel Virgilio. It's a fairly short walk (around 150 meters) down Via Palestrina from the Central Train Station, enough just to have a bit of distance from the goings on there. The street it is located on seems quite enough and there are some shops and restaurants nearby.

I was able to get a room here for the night without a prior reservation. This place is ok if you just need a room for a one night stopover in Milan and use as a base for seeing the sights for a day. Nothing fancy here and very basic. It wasn't particularly all that clean, but the price was right for a night, so this didn't bother me all that much. Otherwise, there is nothing particularly special about this place and it's adequate as a bed for the night. Probably not the place for an extended stay though.

Just a word on safety matters and use caution around the Central Station at night time when in Milan. Not that the characters are an unsavory lot, though I'm sure there are a few of that ilk there, but a lot of people are hanging out around here, drinking and loitering and such. It usually clears out sometime after midnight when the trains have stopped running. Still, it's always good practice to keep yourself alert in such places at night. That's just common sense I guess, but it's easy to let your guard down.

Just a humorous story to finish up with, and returning to the hotel after midnight, I encountered a big street sweeper near the main train station. There is usually lots of litter after the days activities there. Anyway, this machine blows paper, dirt and bits of glass all over the place and I had to run away from it to keep from being hit by debris. I can laugh about it now, but it was quite alarming at the time. Be careful of those street sweepers too!

That's true I suppose, but I had a flight home from Milan the next day. I'd certainly like to visit some places in Eastern Europe one day though.

It's a grand train station, but unfortunately many people throw trash on the ground outside and hang around drinking and such. Maybe they do a better job today in getting people to be better behaved there.
