New York, unfortunately, seems to have a bit of a bad reputation for being an expensive place to stay. Now, I am not going to lie to you, some of the hotels in New York are absolutely ‘off the charts’ when it comes to cost. However, if you know where to look, staying in New York can be just as cheap as almost any other ‘major’ city.

1. The Jane Hotel, West Village: Ok, this is not the cheapest hotel on the list. However, if you are looking for a budget three star hotel (i.e. you want a decent bit of comfort in your stay), then this place needs to be right at the top of the list. One of the reasons as to why I love it so much is the fact that the décor is very ‘retro’. It is an incredibly comfortable hotel with double room prices certainly being on the affordable side.
