A 35€ to 50€ room, Why is it so much better in Germany?

Jump to last reply

Travelling a lot, it's still stunning to me where this huge difference in quality (and service as well) comes from. The "cheap" hotel room in i.e. France offers a standardized product, room, lousy breakfast chain hotel style. A few years ago, it was dirty too.
Still, today it is light years away from what I get for the same price in Germany..

The reason, imo? Those German places are still family and independently operated by small business owners, yet they offer far better quality than the chains for little money..The difference between German and French hotels and Garnis is so drastic and the difference in value you get for you money so enormous.

Buy the products of these small businesses, don't let the chains take over like they did in so many places abroad.
