Whether they go by the names hotel, guesthouse, city apartments, pensione, B&B, albergo, zimmer, agriturismo, locanda, ostello, auberge, or paradors there a variety of lodging options throughout Europe. Next to your plane ticket, accommodations take a big chunk of your travel budget. Budget travel means that we are looking for just that budget accommodations. There will be little glamour in most budget accommodations but they do have their own kind of appeal.

Remember when traveling throughout Europe you spend the majority of your day out “on the streets” so to speak. You’ll be in museums, parks, and cafes (sounds lovely doesn’t it). At the end of the day you basically need a place to rest your head and shower; and it doesn’t have to be the Ritz-Carleton.
