New York, NY (PRWEB) December 16, 2008
EuroCheapo, the Internet guide to budget hotels in Europe, this week announced the addition of Brussels and Bruges to its growing roster of city guides. With the launch of these two popular Belgian destinations, EuroCheapo (http://www.eurocheapo.com) now provides budget travel guides to 26 of Europe's most popular cities.
Brussels, home to many of the European Union's governing bodies, has its share of diplomats, bankers, and bureaucrats with expense accounts. Hotel rates reflect this, with prices soaring during the workweek. So what's a Cheapo to do?
"Surprisingly, Brussels has quite a few small, affordable, and charming hotels and B&B's," said Tom Meyers, Editor-in-Chief of EuroCheapo. "Our editors hunted down hotels in Brussels that provide the best value, leaving plenty of money for waffles, mussels, and even a few beers."
EuroCheapo's Brussels guide (http://www.eurocheapo.com/brussels) features a wide variety of budget-friendly accommodations in central locations, including hotels, pensions, bed and breakfasts, and hostels. The site's editors made special effort to find properties suitable for all types of travelers, including families, business travelers, backpackers, and those just passing through for a night. Nightly rates in recommended hotels start at about $75 per night, taxes included (double occupancy).
The EuroCheapo Bruges guide (http://www.eurocheapo.com/bruges) showcases low-cost hotels, B&Bs, and hostels in this romantic, canal-lined city. All recommended properties are in central Bruges and within walking distance of the Markt and Burg town squares. Nightly hotel rates in Bruges start at about $70 per night, taxes included (double occupancy), although the city's bed and breakfasts offer rooms for even less.
"Bruges is a dream for budget travelers," Meyers said. "The city's hotel and B&B proprietors have high standards and low prices."
In addition to budget hotel recommendations, both the Brussels and Bruges guides provide expert advice to help minimize travel costs. City guide articles cover when to go, tourist passes, airport transportation, renting a car, budget tips, cheap eats, and free museums.
