Uncovering Europe's best budget hotels since 2001.
Yesterday’s New York Times travel section contained several pieces of particular interest, namely:
A Cook’s Tour of Milan
Mimi Sheraton’s front page feature examines Milan’s somewhat surprising culinary reputation. It ain’t just fashion and furniture, folks! (Caution: Contains mouth-watering photos of risotto, pears in wine, veal cotoletta, and more…)
For Your Next Trip, Stock Up on Dental Mitts
Michelle Higgins “Practical Traveler” feature focuses on personal hygiene in the age of carry-on liquid restrictions. Can you find a 3 oz tube of toothpaste?
While Finely Aged, Oporto Cultivates a Taste for the New
Famous throughout the world for its sweet export, Portugal’s second largest city offers the traveler much more than just tasty Port wine. We’re ready to book our dinner table at Foz Velha, “overlooking the crashing waves of the Atlantic.”
Cultured Travelers: Copenhagen: In the Tidy City of the World’s Most Anxious Man
Stephen Metcalf explores Copenhagen, tidy and civil, to trace the life and psychology of philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, the “father of existentialism.” Deep stuff. And, we had to chuckle, across the page from “36 hours in Orlando.”

Eric Goode and Sean MacPherson (creators of the Maritime in Chelsea) take on the Bowery, in this super swank new hotel next to a Salvation Army Shelter. “Skid Row on Easy Street.”
