Hotels are expensive! Especially in Europe. And if you’re not a fan of Airbnb, Booking.com may be a great alternative for you! My family and I spent a few weeks in Europe back in March/April and all of our accommodations were booked through booking.com 🙂
Booking is fairly easy. Just type in your destination, check-in and check-out date, number of rooms, number of people, then search! You can also filter by popularity, budget per night, star rating, property type, facilities and more!
One tip that I can give you when booking your accommodations through Booking.com or any other similar websites/apps is to READ EVERYTHING. Read the fine details, the terms and conditions, where to get your keys, check-in/out times, etc. Just be sure to read everything and also have a contact number owner of the place.
Here are some of the apartments we stayed in while we were in Europe 🙂
Grifone Apartments | Venice, Italy
5 adults for 3 nights, € 555
This was a beautiful apartment! Very spacious and location is very convenient. Just a 10-15 minutes walk from the train station. Had everything we needed and was neat and clean 🙂 There is extra charge for a late check-in so be weary of that.
Turisarte Apartment | Florence, Italy
5 adults for 2 nights, € 252
Another beautiful Italian apartment. Huge and very spacious, the only downside would be that it’s up on the 4th floor with no stairs. I slipped trying carry my suitcase down eek. Other than that we had a nice stay here.
Casa Giada | Rome, Italy
5 adults for 1 night, € 170
ANOTHER beautiful apartment we stayed in, had everything we needed. Just walking distance from St. Peter’s Square. This was probably my favorite apartment because of the view!
