Inexpensive Hotels in Europe

Inexpensive Hotels in Europe thumbnail
Visiting Europe doesn't have to cost a fortune.

Europe isn't known for all-inclusive accommodations, but that doesn't mean you have to hostel-hop to save on costs. There are plenty of inexpensive hotels that put you right in the thick of things, and that's exactly where you want to be, given the continent's rich culture and history. In August 2010, the rooms at these hotels ranged from $100 to $150 per night.

  1. Patou Boutique Hotel & Brasserie, Amsterdam

      Stylistas will appreciate Hotel Patou's proximity to Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton stores. The boutique hotel is right in the middle of Amsterdam's high-end fashion district and only a couple of blocks from the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum. Plenty of natural light shines in on the posh minimalist interiors, and each room has a picture of fashion designer Jean Patou. Grab an early breakfast at the brasserie so you can get some shopping done.

      Berlin combines the old and new.

      Althugh Hotel Otto is swanky, even the larger studio room is affordable. It's close to Kurfürstendamm, a cultural district full of cafes, designer shops and museums. Hotel Otto's most distinct feature is no doubt its rooftop terrace, where the breakfast buffet is open until noon, and tea and cake are served from 2 to 9 p.m.

    Croke Park Hotel, Dublin

      Dublin is a lot older than many people realize.

      Located across the street from the Croke Park Stadium, the hotel is a five-minute walk from the bustling city center and Temple Bar area, and a short bus ride from the airport. The contemporary décor plays second fiddle to the things that matter most: a comfortable bed, a generous breakfast buffet, and an impressive office space in each room. For a real treat, splurge on dinner at the Sideline Bistro.

    Pink Hotel, Paris

      Lamp posts guide people in what used to be known as the "City of Lights."

      Perhaps inspired by Edith Piaf's "La Vie en Rose," the hotel delivers on the pink without being too feminine. The intimate lodge only has 15 rooms in a renovated building set in a historic area close to Place de la Bastille, Jardin Yitzhak Rabin and scenic Parc de Bercy. Because it is in the 12e Arrondissement, there's no shortage of bistros. When you have had enough sightseeing, retreat to your rosy room for a "petit sommeil."

      Rome is one of Europe's most ancient cities.

      It's not just the kitsch deco that makes for a pleasant stay. The Trastevere quarter is a big plus, with its medieval streets and art-infused environment. The Old World area is popular with tourists, so you'll find plenty of bars and trattorias. The location is also on the quiet side of the hubbub; in addition to having a colorful room, you'll also get the shuteye you need.
