Hotel Info

I'm going to try to remember to always add our hotel info in this post in case anyone is interested in doing a trip we've already done.  I'll also include a little write up of the hotel.  As an FYI- We are budget travelers.  I chose hotels based on location and reviews.  None of these hotels are going to be amazing looking, but ALL will be safe, clean, and have a great location.  How much time are you spending in your room anyway??


Best Western Hotel Leipziger Hof, Innsbruck
Allows dogs, within walking distance to downtown


Hotel Cordoeanier, Bruges

Fantastic little B&B.  No parking, but great location and a great Trappist Beer Bar right next door.


Hotel Prince, Paris

Great location, Rue Cler neighborhood.  Close to Metro.

Diana Dauphine, Strasbourg

Close enough to downtown.  Has private parking garage.

Hotel De La Couronne, Riquewihr 

Sweet little place right downtown.  Has parking spaces.


Hotel Bella Vista, Constance

Includes a bus pass with room to get downtown.  Parking and dogs.

Motel One München Sendlinger Tor, Munich

Within walking distance of downtown
Hotel Forsthaus, Oberau
Great little hotel owned by German and American couple.  Allows dogs and is close to Garmisch (by car only).
Piesporter Goldtröpfchen, Mosel Region
Nice hotel, within walking distance of some wine tasting places.
Hotel Roemerhof, Baden-Baden
Great location, allows dogs (5 euro each) and has private parking (11 euro a day)

Shaftesbury Premier London Notting Hill, London
Super small room, but a nice location.  Close to metro.

Gozsdu Court, Budapest

Fantastic!  We had a studio apartment complete with kitchenette and living room.  Great location!  Parking and pets are welcome.  There are a couple little cafes for breakfast options.

Hotel Bogart 2, Milan
Within walking distance of train to get downtown.  Private parking area.  Allows dogs.

La Meta Alghero Casa Per Ferie, Sardinia

Great location across from both beach and bus stop.  Buses however do not always run.  Parking available.

Hotel Firenze, Venice

Fantastic location right in St.Mark's Square.  Allows dogs.

Hotel Montecarlo, Rome
Great location, 5 min. walk to metro.

Vilnius Rent,
Awesome apartment right in the old town!


Mercure Luxembourg Centre

Bed and Breakfast Durderdam, Amsterdam
We rented the yellow vacation house.  Free parking, about a 5 min. drive from a lovely grocery and the park and ride.  Parking/tram tickets 8 euro per car..not per person..awesome deal!  One separate bedroom (inside a sauna, but perfect for baby or a child), loft space for two people, and a double bed on main floor.  


Riad Zitouna, Fes

Awesome, awesome, awesome!  The best hotel ever!  If you stay here, definitely stay for dinner.  It's cheap and probably the most amazing food ever!  It's not heated in the winter months, so bring along an extra sweater for dinner.  We used the Airport Shuttle service, and although it's more pricey than just getting a taxi yourself, it's worth it in my mind.  They meet you at the gate to the medina and save you the walk lugging your suitcase.  

Ibis Krakow Centrum, Krakow
Great location, within walking distance.


Pensao do Norte, Porto

Great location, within walking distance of downtown and Hop On Bus stop.  Although we wouldn't recommend doing the Hop On in this city.  Not necessary.


Hotel Titano

Super nice hotel.  Allows dogs and is a great location.

Edinburgh- Airdenair Guest House- about a 10 min. bus ride from city center.  Great location, nice B&B.  Awesome breakfast!


Catalonia Mirador des Port, Mahon, Menorca

If you have a scooter, than it's a great location.  Otherwise, it's a bit of a walk.

N.H. Brenton, Madrid
About a 5-10 walk to nearest metro.  Nice hotel and comfy rooms.  

Bahia Blanca, La Palma, 1, 35130 Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands
Great resort.  All apartments have ocean view, kitchenette area, patio, AC.  A quick walk to beach and downtown taxis to that area if you're feeling lazy.  :)


ETAP Hotel Luzern City, Luzern

Within walking distance of downtown.  Has parking and allows dogs.

SiDE Hotel and Pension, Istanbul
Can't say enough about this pension.  Stay on the pension side.  They take only cash, but it is super cheap and a great location.  Roof top deck!

  1. Did I miss it when you broadcasted this fabulous information jackpot? This is fantastic, Melody, and such a great idea. I'm now thinking of doing something similar, as I'd love to send people to some places we've been if they're traveling there. I've only recently discovered your blog...was it a secret?
