Artisthotel Monte Christo

100% love it
Well-located budget choice for the younger set
This two-star budget favorite in a rehabbed historic townhouse has just 12 rooms and is often heavily booked. The beds are Ikea-style, the walls are thin, and we're not sure where the "artist" part comes from, though the rooms are decorated with varying measures of bohemianism, including purple paint, lava lamps and Madonnas. Clean and cozy, though, if not especially quiet, and the price is right, starting at 40 euros. Bar downstairs, in which breakfast (8 euros) is served.
