The bed and breakfast service is one of the oldest forms of accommodation. Ever since the Middle Ages, traveling merchants and wanderers alike were treated in inns that resemble today’s hostels and pensions. Besides receiving a cozy bed for the night, guests are also treated to a meal in the morning. The experience of staying in a facility that offers this type of lodging is unique. Nothing compares to a good night’s rest after a long day of traveling and the pleasure of waking up to the smell of freshly-grinded coffee and a hearty breakfast.
If you want to experience a new community and discover its true nature as well as meeting locals and finding out more about their lifestyle, then you should not book anything else than a bed & breakfast house guest. Here, the city’s rich history and the spirit of traditional hospitality will lure you into an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation.
Another important advantage that bed and breakfast lodges have is the low cost in comparison with booking a hotel or a modern resort. Very often, the price for one night is at half of the value that you would pay to book a double room in a three star hotel of relative notoriety. Considering that the fare for a B&B also includes the next morning breakfast, you could say that you trade in the popular brand for a more natural and traditional approach to house guesting.
Bed and breakfast facilities are usually ran by entire families and the business is passed down from one generation to another. This gives the traveling tourist the chance to experience the local customs and traditions. The meals are also cooked by the people who own the B&B’s, so you can have the rare chance of trying a secret family recipe.
