Choose spring or autumn for the best deal and you’ll enjoy a city that is every bit as beautiful but less crowded. You can count on a certain standard of accommodation and it will often exceed your expectations. You might find that you’re placed in a luxury hotel for much less or that you have a comfortable and spacious room in one of the clean, well-organized hostels or motel style accommodation close to the airport.
