Though your obvious choice to stay during your trip may be a hotel, we opine that a bed and breakfast lodging promises a more intimate experience of the metropolis and its people, who come from all parts of the country. B&Bs also provide more services and facilities at a cheaper price than any comparable hotel, and being smaller in size, offer more personalised services, something that you cannot expect from any hotel chain. Thus, these serviced accommodations make for the perfect value-for-money propositions.
Bed and breakfasts can be easily found in a number of localities and cater to different preferences and tastes. So, you have plenty of options to choose from.
