From Athens to
Tuscany, stay in one of Europe’s best affordable hotels—all less than $250 a
Check. Spa? Check. Views of the Mediterranean? Check. The Hôtel du Château de la Tour delivers everything you expect from a French Riviera
getaway—at a fraction of the price of other coastal hotels. So as you lounge in
your Rococo-style room, gazing out at the garden and azure waters beyond,
congratulate yourself on a vacation well done.
there are probably times you’d booked a hotel in Europe based on a pound or euro
rate, thinking the conversion wouldn’t be that bad—until you did the math. Now there’s
no need to scramble for your calculator. T+L’s editors have found 25 stylish European

Istanbul, Berlin, and Tuscany are just a few of the spots
where we discovered great-value properties. From an elegant four-room palazzo
to an eco-friendly urban boutique hotel, there’s a place for almost every taste.
If Barcelona is on your radar, check in to
Barcelo Raval, a new minimalist-chic hotel in the bohemian El Raval
neighborhood, from $140 a night. Las Ramblas and the Gothic quarter are nearby,

who prefer to step back in time will be drawn to the 300-year-old Relais di
Villa Rossi Danielli, a rural escape outside of Rome where Julia Roberts holed up
while shooting Eat, Pray, Love. The six rooms come with painted,
coffered ceilings and French floral fabrics, and the adjacent converted barn
has a wood-burning stone fireplace.
