EuroCheapo's Guide to Cheap Hotels in Europe
The EuroCheapo Newsletter
July 31, 2008

Finding the right hotel can be hard, especially when you're on a budget. How central is it? Does it get rave reviews? How cheap is it?

To make hotel research a little easier, this month we added "CheapoFactor" to our search results. CheapoFactor compiles our results by taking the price, editor's picks, user rating, and location into consideration.
