Great conversation starter, and actually not a bad read. Great photos and decent descriptions. I assure you that you can't find a better coffee table book than this!
This book makes me want to pack my bags and go! so badly... and at the same time it evokes happy memories of sunny, adventurous, and spectacular trips. Leafing through this book is like digging out your shoe box full of photographs -- just better. You see the pictures that YOU would take -- of the places that YOU would check into, and you will find yourself marvel at memories that you have yet to make. This book is not meant to be a guide -- it rather is a combination of art book and photo album. It combines pictures and little stories of more than 200 friendly, welcoming, and caring budget places around the world -- many from Asia and South America but also finds in the US and Europe. The list of addresses in the back enables the reader to directly contact the hotels for reservations. However the book is a huge inspiration to forego the depressing chains on your next trip and rather go search for these happy-making gems. When I am in need of a mood-booster I just love to spend some time in the travel section of a book store and "plan" my next trip. This book has the very same uplifting effect with one variation: It focuses on the place where you are STAYING rather than the place you are GOING. This concept is a bit baffling but makes sense: The place you are staying replaces your home for the time of your trip and should be oozing just as much hospitality as the town or country you are visiting -- without eating up the best part of your travel budget.
After I opened Cheap Hotels, I kept repeating "I love this book!" First, it's handsomely printed and bound in Germany. The photographs, speaking their own language, are numerous and wonderfully colorful. The text is in English, French and German, reminiscent of operating instructions. As you peruse it you become not an armchair traveler, but a bedside traveler. The beds (and various amenities) pictured can be had for from $4 to $185 per night (strictly speaking the $185 room has two beds). There's a location on the globe for every adventurous soul.
This book is at least as much of a bargain as these rooms.

I must admit that I am really disappointed with this book. I don't think it's worth the money at all. The information in the book is meager. It offers nothing more than some pretty pictures, a lot of blank space, and a list of all the hotel's contact information in the back. What I hate the most is the tiny, hard-to-read captions about each picture. For Christ' sake, for all the blank space in the book, the editor could not choose a bigger and more readable font? I was expecting more detailed description about each hotel listed in the book. As for the writer's comments about the repulsiveness of the polyester bedspread in the charaterless chain hotel rooms and the charm of those little, cheap hotels, she is preaching to the choir because people who would spend money to buy this book are already the kind of travelers looking for this kind of lodging.
The photos are what lead me to enjoy this book. Unlike many other books on travel this is more of small notebook on places to have a good rest and a surprising new view. Too many books miss bringing the feelings one has had on the road, this one doesn't. It attempts to get that across in the writing and the photos, the brevity of words does reflect how some experiences have no words.
So far have kept this book close to me to get a feeling during those times when something different is needed. The few friends I've given this book to have enjoyed receiving it.
