Stay options in Germany include:Hotels: Thankfully, most German cities have franchises of the large international hotels, as well as a number of local hotels. However, prices can vary significantly by city (For instance, Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt are most expensive). A cheaper and more convenient option is staying in Ibis Hotels and City Hotels that are usually located near certain major railway stations. B&Bs are more affordable and slightly less comfortable than hotels. However, they are a good way to experience local German culture. Hostels are simple, affordable budget-accommodations, mostly available on a sharing basis. International youth hostels and independent hostels are the most popular choices in the country largely because they are widespread, easily available and cheap and a good way to get to know other travellers. Camping on authorised campsites in Germany is also a cheap and handy way to spend the nights. These campgrounds vary in quality and infrastructure which determines their price.
