Colissio Hotel, Stirling

Finding a place to stay that has a good reputation and in well within your price range can be a daunting task. Even with many review websites available, you can still get into a really bad situation. How can you find really good places to stay in your price range? The review sites are often plagued by property owners refuting honest reviews. Check out accommodation reviews on Yelp and other local people powered. Know what you are willing to put up with if you have to be on a budget. My personal considerations are the bed needs to be right and the bath makes sense and just works. The rest is icing on the cake. Safe neighborhood.

Review sites worth looking at, but always read several reviews from are:

Like a Local More cities are being added, there are reviews on just about anything. While this site  boasts great real reviews, still read carefully. What may be great for one person is not for another. More professional reviews, professional travelers and writers. Not necessarily non-biased.
