This is no joke. TripAdvisor, one of the Internet’s most trusted sources for member reviews on attractions, accommodations, and restaurants, asked their members to reveal the top ten hotels priced under $19 per night around the world. The following two are at the top of the list; both are places on my travel wish list.
The Shiva Hotel in Kathmandu, Nepal. Average price per night: $9. Member comment:
“The guesthouse is right in the center of Bhaktapur, rooms with great view on Durbar Square. Breakfast at rooftop with excellent view on city and Himalaya’s. In times of festivals quite noisy in rooms at front side. The guys really make you feel at home.“
El Panchan in Palenque, Mexico. Average pirce per night: $6. Member comment:
“The rooms were cheap and had hot water, the location was fantastic (just outside the park), and the staff was helpful. The people there helped to arrange our travels to Palenque ruins and a tour of nearby waterfalls, which was nice. There was even a computer lab with internet access for my friend who had some work to do.”
