Hotels

You can get super cheap budget hotels for super cheap or luxury 5* hotels that costs hundreds.

For hotels we would usually choose to book with Booking.com (sign up to their Genius programme for extra discounts) or with Trivago where you can then choose who to book with including the hotel direct.
