When we say there is a hotel in Europe for every budget and every travel style, we truly do mean it! European accommodations are as diverse and unique as the continent itself.
Here is a breakdown of just some of the cheap hotel rooms in Europe that are available to you:
- Hostels: Once the primary choice of students and ‘hippies’, hostels have come along a long way over the past couple of decades. Nowadays in most hostels you will find a range of travellers from students to families to seniors; basically anyone looking for cheap hotel rates in Europe. Many hostels offer dormitory style accommodations with shared bathroom facilities. Some of the newer hostels now have private rooms with en suite facilities, but these are best booked in advance as they are limited.
- University & Colleges: During academic break many of the universities and colleges throughout Europe open their dorms to travellers from around the world. The accommodations are basic but often have self-catering facilities, which can really assist in making a small budget stretch even further.
If you are looking for something a little more elaborate than a hostel or dormitory style accommodation, then one of the following may be ideal for you:
- Bed & Breakfasts: Intimate and charming, Bed & Breakfasts suit those travellers who are looking for a very homey atmosphere to start and end their day with. Often located in personal homes or historic buildings, each Bed & Breakfast is distinctive. A favorite feature for many of the B&B is the personal connection you receive with your destination. The owners of many B&B’s can be limitless sources of local information on everything from the best restaurants to the best shopping deals.
- Hotels: Similar to any other country, Europe is chalked full of mainstream hotel chains and independent hotel operators. Each one is subject to a star rating system and inspections by local governing bodies, typically the tourist board for the city or region. Like in North America, hotel rates will range from economy to luxury.
Accommodations in Europe are not limited to just hostels, school dormitories, B&B’s and hotels. There are many other lodging alternatives. In England and Scotland, castle stays abound and can add a little history and romance to any vacation. In Stockholm a night on a moored ship will be peaceful with the sound of waves rock you to sleep at night. Let whimsy take over when you book a night for the family in a treehouse in the Loire Valley of France. If you can dream it, Europe will offer it.
