United States


One of the most popular and biggest cities in the world, New York is also an expensive place to visit. In 2010 alone, almost 50 million visitors have been in this city and the occupancy rate of hotels here is much higher than in other places. Generally, you will pay over $200 for a hotel room even with the crisis, though it was even higher than that before. You can stay in New York on a budget, though the kind of hotels considered cheap here would be considered luxury prices in other cities. With such a large city and so many hotels at your disposal, finding a good deal is possible, though a bit of research will be needed.

The more expensive part is the hotel. New York is an expensive city to travel to and even when you spend a few hundred dollars per night for a room, you don’t always get a lot in return. There are many hotels which are extremely expensive and there are also many hotels which are just extremely overpriced for what they offer. If you do a bit of research, you can still find some good deals, thanks to all the reviews offered by other people.

If hotels are not your thing, you can also check out B&B’s or guesthouses, which are usually cheaper than hotels. Some of them offer you your own bathroom, while others have one which is shared with others. If you’d like to feel like a local, a guesthouse will give you a better ambiance and it will usually be placed in a residential area.
