We book most of our hotels through this site. It’s a great resource of hotels and offers great deals.
We love renting apartments with AirBNB to have more relaxed stays. If you’re not on AirBNB already, the link above will give you a $35 credit.
This might seem odd, but we use TripAdvisor to read hotel reviews and on occasion book rooms too.
Sometimes, even we stay in hostels. You can find great private rooms in hostels if you know where to look or you can find good deals on dorm rooms.
