In a city where ham is an acceptable form of ceiling it might be incredibly challenging to keep a vegan or even vegetarian diet in Madrid. Where’s one to turn when Museo del Jamon is on every street corner?

Eat at Rayen Vegano

Rayen Vegano is simply adorable. The decor is welcoming and humble, the walls feature artwork of local artists on a rotating schedule, and the plants crawling the walls bring the outdoors inside. Sit back with a glass of fresh mango juice and browse the list of whatever is fresh and local at the time. Rayen Vegano has a menu that follows the seasons and availability of produce, so you never know what you’re going to get, but you will always find good choices. Found in the artists neighborhood of Las Letras, the restaurant offers 100% vegan food and is usually buzzing with local hipsters who come to nourish themselves and catch up over a long lunch. The space is small, so come early to take advantage of the great priced Menu of the Day for only twelve euro; it includes first plate, second plate, a drink, homemade bread, and dessert or coffee.

Always Something New at Sanissimo

Sanissimo is the perfect place to top up your energy level with clean fuel. Fresh fruit smoothies, bagels, and vegan bakery ensures you’re going to find something you love here. They’ve added vegan hamburgers and ice cream to their expanding menu, so stop in and see what’s cooking!

Indian Food at Restaurante Swagat Indio

Lavapies is a colorful neighborhood famous for the smells of curry wafting down the street and the barrage of men with flyers hustling to get you to sit at their restaurant … and this is where you will find 99% of Indian food in Madrid. Swagat Indio is unlike others in the city, starting with their two locations — neither of which are in Lavapies. While most Indian restaurants cater to vegetarians, it’s harder to find ones that make vegan food, as many Indian dishes contain ghee (clarified butter). You will find the best naan in the city, thanks to creations such as pistachio and apricot fresh from the tandoori. Mmm.

Aliño has the Cheapest Menu of the Day

If you’ve got money on your mind, and your mind on healthy, fresh, food in a hurry, head over to Aliño on Calle Espiritu Santo 2 where you can get a drink, main entrée, and side dish for only five euro daily. Choose from dishes like basil and sun-dried tomato farfalle pasta, roasted red peppers and polenta, vegetarian pizza for two euro per slice, and homemade lemonade everyday. In the summer, cool off with a serving of fresh gazpacho, and in the winter warm up with stewed garbanzo beans and spinach. This is the best value for your money when visiting the vegetarian side of Madrid on a budget!

Sadly, there are no strictly vegan hotels in Madrid, so it’s best to find a cheap hotel in Madrid and spend your money supporting the vegan restaurants.

Many a tourist arrives in Rome without enough advanced planning, hoping to grab a room at the last-minute and score a bargain price. It doesn’t always work that way, however. There might be local holidays going on, events in town you were unaware of, and a myriad of other reasons why there are no budget rooms available. Plus, it’s a real pain to roll or backpack your things around from hotel to hotel on a sunny Roman day or in the rain. Take it from someone who has been there.

Instead, do your research and book in advance, leaving you free to plan out activities near by, scout great restaurants (here’s a great list if you’re a vegetarian or vegan in Rome), and work out transportation to your hotel. This article describes some of the cheapest hotels in Rome. After all, you’re there to see the city, not the inside of your hotel room. Save on the room and splurge on the rest of the experience!

Excel Roma Montemario

When a hotel has the word Excel in their name, you know it’s a good play to stay. But when you see it has an outdoor pool, workout center, is only 500 meters from the train station, and is only $34 per night, you’ll be scrambling to press “book” before this unicorn of a hotel is gone. But wait, there’s more — a lush garden, free on-site parking, complimentary Wi-Fi, and an event center make this an easy choice for your next stop in Rome. Check out the beautiful photos, and see for yourself.

A Room With a View

If you enjoy garden views while sipping your morning coffee, you’re not alone. Regal Park Hotel is outside Rome’s city center, near the famous and lush garden Parco de Veio. It’s less than a 20-minute drive to Saint Peter’s Basilica. This is a perfect place for those on a budget who also like serenity during their travels, as it’s no secret that downtown Rome is a bit hectic. The best is yet to come — their nightly rate is only $35, making this a veritable steal.

Rouge et Noir in Rome

Another budget hotel in Rome with free parking? Yes, you read that right. Quality Hotel Rouge et Noir Rome will leave you in the best of both worlds. Though it’s not in the center of Rome, they have a free shuttle which provides pickup and drop-off services, saving you even more money on transportation, and letting you relax without attempting to navigate the bus or metro system. Art lovers rejoice, as the hotel is only seven kilometers from the Borghese Gallery and tranquil surrounding gardens.

While Italy is known for price-gouging and bleeding your wallet dry, take heart that you’ve been a good Internet sleuth and will arrive in the city ready to make the most of your hard-earned money. A stay at any of these budget hotels in Rome will keep your accommodation costs low and the room quality high!

Barcelona is known for their famous Creme Catalan, La Boqueria Market with the massive butcher section, and Las Ramblas which is home to many overpriced paella dishes. So where is one to find a good meal? Forget about ordering the veggie sandwiches as they usually come with tuna. The following restaurants are 100% vegan, but are also great for any vegetarian or omnivore looking to stay healthy.

Cat Bar, Where the Cool Cats Hang Out

When you are in the mood for hearty burgers made without meat but bursting with flavor and nutrients, Cats is the place for you. A cozy restaurant with a free-for-all piano and extensive vegan menu that centers around garden burgers such as hemp burger, black bean burger, and crazy burger! Look out for the spicy salsa (hard to find in Spain) and the fresh made potatoes, pair this with one of the many microbrewed ales they have on offer, and you have a veritable vegan feast on your hands. Cat Bar doesn’t accept reservations, and can get crowded so be ready to wait on weekends and peak eating hours. Find them at Carrer de la Boría 17, near metro Juame I.

Veggie Garden of Eden

If you’ve dreamed of inspired Indian and Nepalese food at rock-bottom prices for a European city like Barcelona, look no further. Veggie Garden serves up many exotic dishes, from curried samosas to buckwheat soba noodle soup. The restaurant’s drink choices leave nothing for you to want — chocolate and banana smoothies, fresh mango juice, date and pistachio smoothies, and a wide array of green juices to recharge your batteries. Everything on the menu is vegan, including beer and wine, so order your heart out! Take advantage of the daily menu which is first plate, second plate, drink, and dessert starting at only eight euro. They don’t have a website and the place is popular, but worth the wait. They are at Carrer Dels Angels 3, near Contemporary Art Museum.

Choose La Matahambre for a Quick Getaway

La Matahambre (literally, “the kill hunger”) is a sweet little spot owned by two sisters. It is micro-sized place packed full of flavor and great deals — their daily dish is only four euro. It rotates depending on what the sisters feel like cooking. Most winter days you can expect a nut-based lasagna or seitan dish, while the summer menu reflects lighter options such as a quinoa salads and fresh gazpacho. Since space is so tight in their establishment, it’s a take-away only restaurant, but their location close to Las Ramblas means it’s a perfect place to pick-up and go people watch. Find La Matahambre at Carrer Unio 13.

No matter where you choose to eat, it’s a wise idea to get a hotel in Barcelona that is near the city center, so you’re able to explore on foot everything the city has to offer. The money you save on public transportation can go toward a few flutes of delicious cava, which is a must in Barcelona no matter what diet you keep!

Hotel An der Philharmonie

Flop onto the pillowtop mattress and sink into a deep and relaxing sigh of relief you’re at the Hotel An der Philharmonie where everything is wonderful. Right outside your door is the beautiful, proud Cologne Cathedral as well as the city center. Cologne’s heart is quite literally at your fingertips for the low cost of $92 per night.

Home Away from Home

The Hotel am Augustinerplatz is a great place to nest yourself for your upcoming Cologne trip. They offer a 24-hour roundtrip airport shuttle service, provide parking during your stay, and will even let you leave your car past check-out (space willing), plus their laundry service is reported to be fast and efficient. Basically, it’s like coming to stay at your mother’s house without the embarrassing childhood photos lying around. Choose this Cologne hotel if you want a no-frills but solid stay in the heart of the city.

Best of Both Worlds

NH Köln Mediapark is a fresh breath of air literally as it’s situated in the greenbelt area of the city. You’re surrounded by nature and lush, verdant beauty outside, with all the comforts of home inside. The 20-minute walk to the Cathedral is pleasant and keeps you entertained as you walk among tall towers, a lake, and the tree-lined streets. This is also a great way to burn off the delicious breakfast which is served on-site in the Concerto Restaurant. If that’s not enough for you, grab a workout in the 24-hour fitness center which guests also have access to. Of course, the hotel provides free Wi-Fi to keep you connected and ready to plan out your trip. The big surprise? Rooms start at $79 per night!

Tokyo promises to be many things: exciting, crowded, confusing, and electric. But as anyone who has ever visited knows this city is not cheap. That doesn’t mean you should skip it, though! Tokyo has many charms that can be had without spending a penny. All it takes is some pre-planning and preparation on your part. One expenditure that can get out of hand is a hotel room in Tokyo. Fear not, for here’s a list of cheap hotels in Tokyo to keep your overhead low.

Once you’ve booked the room, it’s time to plan your itinerary. What excites you most? Here are a few options of varied activities that Tokyo offers for free at select times and locations, so use a free and handy app like TripIt to keep yourself organized and saving as much money as possible.

Play Pretend at the Emergency Simulator

If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like when a major earthquake hits, make your way to the Tokyo Fire Department where you can take a free first aid course, learn about what to do in an emergency, and the fun part step into the earthquake simulator! Feel the ground rock and roll below you and see if you can keep your calm and remember the instructions. It’s a giant virtual reality game for all, and it costs nothing. Check the Tokyo Fire Department website for current open hours before you make your trip there, though.

Get a Tour Guide Free

Even though it’s touted as costly, Tokyo still has some secret gems and one of those is the Tokyo Free Guide. As the name suggests, this is an organization of people from all walks of life who want to share their city with visitors. You can book a guide on their website and select your preferred language and you will be paired up with a guide whose interests match yours. Getting firsthand insight into the culture of Tokyo is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and they’re offering it for free. Of course at the end of your tour it is customary to give a token of appreciation for the time spent and friendship started.

Hop on the Panda

No, not a real panda the Panda Bus. If there’s anything more adorable and appropriate than a panda bus in Tokyo, we can’t think of it right now. The Panda Bus picks up in Asakusa and does a big loop, returning to its starting point so you can get a lay of the land, a feel for how the city moves, and sit in adorable seats that have panda ears sewn onto the sides. What could be more fun?

Stroll the Flea Markets

There’s no better way to get in touch with the people of the city than to see what they show up to sell at flea markets. Everything from antiques to the newest animal costumes will be on display at the many flea markets all over the city. Check out this listing to see which one is closest to you, and enjoy!

See? It’s not that hard to save money when visiting Tokyo. It just takes a little Internet research and a lot of faith! Enjoy your next visit to the Big Sushi and relish all the money you’ll be saving.

When you’re itching for a vacation but not flushed with cash, it’s a good idea to stay within your budget and save on hotel rooms since you’ll be spending most of your time outdoors anyway. When Seattle the city of coffee, rain, and Mother Nature is on the agenda you need not worry, as there are so many activities to do out and about that you’ll barely sleep anyways!

Marco…..? Polo!

Stay at the Marco Polo Motel and your lungs will thank you for making this budget choice, as the whole hotel is smoke-free. While the hotel has been around for a while, you will appreciate the amenities like on-site Wi-Fi, complimentary toiletries, and cable television. You can easily shave down a few more daily costs by using the in-room fridge and microwave to self-cater a few meals. Rooms start as low as $79 per night, so book ahead, as they fill up quickly.

Beauty and the Budget

Relax and let the Seattle Pacific Hotel take care of everything. Nowhere else are you likely to find a room for $83 a night that is so large, spacious, and full of amenities. The hotel features cable TV, Wi-Fi, a shower/tub combo, and even a fireplace in the lobby to warm yourselves up on a winter Washington night. If you like saving money while having a few elegant touches, this hotel is a must!

When Location Matters Most

Part of keeping costs low while traveling is picking a central hotel so you cut down on transportation fees and maximize your exploration time. Hotel Seattle enjoys the perfect location downtown, and their 24-hour front desk is happy to help you sort out any loose ends on your trip. Previous guests have raved about the kindness of the staff as well as the convenience of being allowed to leave your luggage for a few hours after you’ve checked out to fully maximize your time in the city.

Columbus Motor Inn: Back to the Basics

While staying at the Columbus Motor Inn likely isn’t on your to-do list for your upcoming trip, it’s impossible to deny what a great bargain they offer. Being five miles out of the city means you’re paying only $63 per night for a comfy bed and a hot shower which is probably the cheapest budget hotel in Seattle! While their Wi-Fi is notoriously slow (or sometimes absent), you can take advantage to visit one of Seattle’s thousands of coffee shops and get your Internet fix there or maybe this is the perfect time to take an Internet hiatus, and live in the moment for a while. One thing is certain: staying at this motel will save you plenty of cash and leave you ready to splurge on some finer things during your trip.

Everyone deserves a vacation, not just those whose wallets are ready to make it rain! Luckily these budget hotels in Seattle are a great compromise between the stars in your eyes and the dollar signs on your bank statement.

While there are plenty of budget hotels in Mermaid Waters, a luxurious beach hotel makes the difference between a decent vacation and a spectacular one. As with anything, you need to find the right fit for your ideal vacation. Take a look at these outstanding hotels and see if you’re not ready to book a flight to Queensland right away!

Live Like Royalty at Palazzo Versace

With handmade mosaics, fine silks, and perfect parquet floors, Palazzo Versace is an experience that will take your breath away. Facilities include the usual air-conditioned, smoke-free rooms with a nightly turndown service; in case you can’t bear to leave the room, 24-hour room service is available. Lagoon pools, cabanas, and the outstanding Aurora Spa will leave you blissed out and eagerly awaiting your return to your own personal palace.

Paradise Found: Peppers Broadbeach

There’s simply no Gold Coast hotel with more amenities and a better location than Peppers Broadbeach. Among the free Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, plasma TVs, and the DVD selection, there’s more than enough entertainment to go around. In addition to all of this, you’re going to love that each room comes with a fully equipped kitchen, allowing you to keep your diet while on vacation! When you’re done with dinner just toss the dishes in the dishwasher. How’s that for convenience? Of course, it’d be a real waste to spend so much time indoors while on a beach holiday – don’t worry – Peppers is located right on the water. You can hear the waves lapping all day and night, and toss open the doors and hit the sand whenever you feel like it.

Family Fun For All at Surfers Paradise

The Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa will make even parents feel like kids again. With views to make you swoon, a heated saltwater pool replete with fish, a romantic waterfall and lagoon, and even a waterslide, you’re sure to want to spend the whole vacation here! The smallest guest room is 450 square feet, so you will have plenty of room to unpack your belongings and enjoy life outside of the suitcase.

Your Home Away From Home

Travel can be challenging – even if it’s just a short break with the family – but Meriton Serviced Apartments Southport has changed all that. Guests rave over their five-star service and helpful staff. The proximity to public transportation and beach views also make these apartments a great choice if you want to feel cozy and homelike while on the road.

The Perfect Spot for Surf and Turf

Hopefully, you’re not turning up much turf at the RACV Royal Pines Resort, which is a five-star resort located on one of Australia’s best golf courses. If you plan to spend as much time swinging clubs as catching waves, this is the spot for you!

If your budget allows for some elegance, book now and start searching for the perfect summer read because the only thing you will have to take care of while staying at these great spots is relaxing all day long.

They say if you drink the water from the Trevi Fountain that you will certainly return to Rome, and rightly so; Rome is a city that deserves to be seen many times over and from many angles. Admittedly, a visit to The City of Seven Hills is more pleasant when you’re not on a backpacker’s budget, and even more so when you’re ready to splurge. If your next trip is going to be a comfortable one, make sure to stay at one of these hand-selected hotels.

Hotel Barocco is a Throwback to the Baroque

When you need to be in the heart of the action, the Hotel Barocco is perfect. Only ten minutes walking to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, and a metro stop right in Piazza Barberini, the location alone would be reason to call this hotel ideal. Add in that each room is appointed with marble bathtubs and sinks, wood furnishings, and a pillow top bed to help you rest after a long Roman day.

Aldrovandi Villa Borghese

An exquisite setting, impressive attention to detail, and the finest of everything from silverware to on-site dining, you’re in the best of hands at Aldrovandi Villa Borghese. Take advantage of their free city shuttle, which leaves you at the most important touristic sites, and make it a point to dine at the hotel at least one night; the Restaurant Oliver Glowig proudly boasts two Michelin stars.

Hotel Indigo Rome St. George Seamlessly Fuses Luxury and Modern Art

Craving something a little more bold? Look no further; the Hotel Indigo Rome – St. George is just the ticket. Each room bursts with personality; choose by color, theme, or your own personal preference. Just because the decor is wacky doesn’t mean the staff is — far from it, in fact — everything here is top of the line. This hotel is all about personality: Plug your iPod into the docking station and relax to your own rhythms, or ask the staff what to do in the area and hit the streets in search of your spark.

Hotel Raphaël-Relais & Châteaux, Your Own Castle

Hotel Raphaël-Relais & Châteaux is a dream come true for weary travelers. From the welcome drink and surprise to the Bulgari amenities in the restrooms, everything is well thought out with your comfort and happiness in mind. When you take the short stroll to the local sites, you can relax knowing your belongings are safe and sound behind a Siemens Safety Electronic lock.

The hotel itself is a living monument to art in all forms, from the ivy and bougainvillea that drip from the front façade to the Carrara marble that greets you at the entry.
