Affordable Hotels and B&Bs in Europe

Searching for hotel rooms in Athens and Rome this week, I stumbled upon this website:

I could not find any affordable hotels on,, expedia, travelocity…and all those usual suspects. On, however, I was able to find hotels for as little as 30Euro for a double room in Athens. They provide photos, reviews and their cancellation penalties are very forgiving. Plus, the hotels have character. You don’t see chain hotels on the site very often.

I wish I knew about this site years ago!
