Looking for a good hotel in Paris? It shouldn’t be too hard to find one, given the number of rooms (around 81,000 in 2012) and the diversity of styles on offer.
As one of the world’s most visited cities, the choice ranges from chain groups to highly individual addresses. In keeping with its reputation as a refined, elegant and extravagant city, the accommodation offer includes a high number of luxury establishments and hip design hotels, but those on a lower budget and business travellers who require a convenient place to stay are also well provided for.
There’s no lack of superlatives to describe London, one of the liveliest and most expensive capitals of Europe. Its extensive choice of activities (museums, shopping, vast parks, historical monuments…) and insatiable appetite for fun are magnets for foreign and British visitors alike. As far as hotels are concerned, the offer is large (with around 1300 establishments), the prices are generally high, and the type of accommodation is extremely varied, so we felt that a little guidance would helpful.
Spain’s capital has also got a lot going for it in the way of culture. The centre is home to its fair share of architectural delights, and no trip would be complete without admiring the Plaza Major, the Puerta de Alcala, the Paseo del Prado and the Palacio Real. City of movida, Madrid’s inhabitants definitely know how to party, meaning there is about as much to do by night as by day.
