Florence flexible check-in/check out times

Any suggestions for someone who needs to stash luggage before and after usual hotel checkout times, or are the hotels willing to hold luggage for a fee?

Welcome to the forum!

Almost all hotels will hold your luggage before and after checking in/out
Just ask
No fee

Christine, thank you for the quick reply! I am a solo traveler in Florence for the last leg of my tour from Turin, arriving 11:30 am Wednesday through 6pm Thursday with my luggage. I have to leave around 6pm to stay in Milan one night to fly out Friday morning from MXP. Do you have a hotel recommendation for ease of travel, safety, and comfort for that one night and proximity to the train station? Advice for the right hotel in Milan Thursday night to get to MXP in a timely manner would be much appreciated as well!!

What time does your flight depart?

The 2 hotels most often mentioned here are
Hotel Garda
Hotel Berna

Both should be on or you can book on the hotel website
Don’t hesitate to book as others have reported low availability in Milan at certain times

Both are walking distance 5-10 min from Milano Centrale
From Milano Centrale you will take the Malpensa Express it runs every 30 min or so and takes about an hour
You can buy your ticket at the station or on the easy to use Trenitalia app
No need to purchase in advance- but you could get it at station the night before when you arrive
Just to save time in the morning
The price never changes, can’t sell out, no reserved seats
