So most of the threads here are about hostels, but what about /comfy/ hotels?

Maybe it's just me being British and being used to being totally ripped off, but holy fuck. Some countries have some incredible deals on hotels.

For example, I'm going to Brazil next week. Rio, the Green Coast, Iguazu falls. Every hotel I'm staying at is basically 5 star luxury. Rooftop pools. Spa. Gym. Multiple internal restaurants/bars. One of them has 6 different outdoor pools.... and the cost for all of this? For 2 weeks? £700 (about $1000). For the same standard in London. It would probably cost about £20k+

Where are the best places to go for getting this sort of good value?

I know Vegas can be very expensive, but I've also heard a number of stories where people have gotten good deals in great hotels. Or that they've been upgraded or offered additional nights for free at some of the casinos.

If you're going to Vegas with another person (or a few people), and I assume you are, there's a nice, clean reasonable hotel with suites that include a full kitchen, washer and dryer, etc.

I stayed there myself earlier this year. It's just off the strip, but they have a free shuttle you can use. Also free breakfast, and a laundry room (coin-op).

King suite will run you about USD $140/night.

I was traveling a bunch earlier this year. I tried to stick to $50-100 a night, and mainly did that. I stayed in one hostel and while it was OK, it helped remind me why I prefer a /comfy/ hotel. Mainly cuz I have a hard time sleeping, and I like sticking to a kinda boring schedule.

Anyway, it seemed like my money went furthest in Bangkok and Italy. I stayed at this really nice place in Bologna with good breakfast, heated floors in the bathroom and shit for maybe $60/nt. A place in Rome with coffee brought to my room fro around the same. The BKK place was enormous and had a nice ass breakfast buffet.

Japan has some pretty reasonable and comfy business hotels. They're tiny, but they work. The place I stayed at in Sapporo was pretty nice, a Best Western north of the station. Though that could also just be the exchange rate talking.

London is definitely the worst. I stuck to my budget and was in a total shithole. The people who ran the joint were Russian or something so even the "English" breakfast sucked.

I once had a "hotel room" in London that I could--literally, and I mean literally--touch both walls with my outstretched arms.

If you use hotels many times every year, I always recommend signing up to IHG program.
Although their hotels are not always the best nor the best deals, I always book their hotels in cheaper countries (Eastern Europe, SE Asia, China) and get as many loyalty points as anywhere else. Also, they have a huge range of hotels (Intercontinental, Holiday Inn, Staybridge mainly)

For example, with those points, I got myself 7 free nights in Intercontinental Vienna right (instead of around 350-400 euros per night) in the middle of August for free, and lately I went to London for four nights near Oxford Street for free as well, with an upgraded room. (instead of 450 pounds per night)

And yeah, I always go in hotels.

I was pretty happy when I went to dgi byen in Copenhagen back in August.
Clean and pretty large room, good bathroom, fucking amazing location (apart from the main train station right below the balcony lol)
The place did get very hot in the night because it was freakishly warm and had triple glazing windows.

8/10 will definitely go again

I've had multiple hotel rooms in Hong Kong where both walls were flush against the bed. If you dropped something down the side of the bed, it was gone.

Some places in SEA have a great price/quality ratio. Even in BKK you can still find 5 star luxury for relatively cheap.

They do this for people who gamble a lot. Also groups of hit girls.

The Ibis hotel chain is consistent in quality and a real bargain in my opinion.

Yep, true for me too. I remember staying in a hostel once for £32 a night and that was a fucking shit heap. The Second time I went It cost me £120 for a reasonably nice room but it was quite a trek from the middle.

Assassins you mean?

Agoda, Booking.com, and groupon are great for finding discounts on nice places.

I'm a student and don't have a huge budget, but five-star hotels in India tend to be of very good quality for low prices. I think I read an article somewhere online that indicated either New Delhi or Mumbai had the best value-for-experience five-star hotels in the world. They might not have anything terribly crazy inside aside from pools, bars, and clubs, but in some cases you're paying as low as $70-$80 for a single.

Doesn't reflect my experience in India. I've had far better price/luxury ratios in Thailand and Malaysia for example.

Which hotels are you staying at in Brazil?

Was there last year and the hotel in Copacabana (Rio Porto Bay) was about £175 for a room (the exchange rate has been really good for us Brits but it wasn't *that* cheap)
