During our travels we have stayed in many different guesthouses and budget hotels. We desire not much, the only thing we always wanted was our own bathroom. We have collected all the information about our stays, so why not share it with you?

We have listed the cities in alphabetic order, with below the name(s) of the accommodation. If the accommodation is on, you will find a link to their website. Please consider using those links if you are planning to book one of the accommodations (or any other), in that case will will earn some pocket money. Thanks!
