Cheap Hotels
Really cheap hotels in Paris or New York might be hard to come by. But outside of Europe and North America there are some great accommodation options on offer for the budget traveler looking for a bit of luxury.

And let's face it, traveling is pretty hard work. Although backpackers hostels might be the cheapest choice, there are times when you want to have a long shower all to yourself, put the air-conditioning on, and curl up in a beautifully made bed... After attacking the mini-bar, that is!

When it comes to price, many people seem to stick to the rule of thumb that 'if it seems too good to be true, then it probably is'. Hotels that offer a host of wonderful facilities, and are still really cheap, might cause a few alarm bells to ring. 'It can't be good if it's that cheap', people seem to say...

But, if this might occasionally prove to be the case, then here are a few cheap hotels around the world that really are that good:

Siem Reap Riverside Hotel, Cambodia

With Angkor Wat, one of the world's most exquisite monuments on its doorstep, you'd have thought that accommodation at the Siem Reap Riverside Hotel would be seriously expensive. It's not the case, however. This charming place offers double rooms from around €4 ($6) a night. The hotel will even help arrange transport to the wonderful Khmer temples. And in the evenings after a long, hot day of sightseeing you can sit out and have a drink on their beautiful flowery terrace.

Villa Serena Margarita Island, Venezuela

Margarita is, generally speaking, the domain of large, expensive resort-style hotels. But the Villa Serena is a family-run place with a warm, comfortable vibe. And with prices from about €15 ($21) a night, it means you can spend a few extra days lounging around on the nearby beach.

Venus Hotel, Pamukkale, Turkey

At just a shade over €6 ($9), and with a pool thrown in, the Venus Hotel has got to be one of the best offers in Turkey. Everything is very carefully put together, and the place has an intimate feel. What's more, the word's beginning to get out about the homemade meals they provide to hungry guests.

Tibetan Lodge, Dali, Yunnan, China

There are cheap hotels, and then there's the Tibetan Lodge. Plenty of places in China fall under the 'budget' category, but few are as beautiful and lavishly decorated (in traditional fashion) as the Tibetan Lodge. Most important of all, though, it's spotlessly clean. And from a trifling €4 ($6) a night, it's got all the luxury a footsore traveler could possibly need.

Hotel Kaoba, Cabarete, Dominican Republic

At the Hotel Kaoba, in the paradisiacal country of the Dominican Republic, €12 ($17) goes a long way. In fact, you get a lovely two person bungalow set amidst a tropical garden. Not that you'll spend much time in it! The beach town of Cabarete is full of great restaurants and bars. And during the day there are fantastic opportunities for kitesurfing and windsurfing.
