THIS POST IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. This is constantly being updated as I add more recommended places.

This is a compilation of hotels, apartments and other accommodation types that I have personally tried and recommend. These are mostly on the mid-range budget with a few on the low budget and luxury budget ranges.

I'm a full time nomad, sometimes a digital nomad, with no home base (I gave up my apartment in the Philippines and  I have no family there) so I'm constantly searching for the best places to stay around the world. I share here the best ones I found.

These places are for two people unless noted otherwise. Prices may be dynamic depending on season, estimated price I indicated is based on amount we paid.

Some of the links are an affiliate. This means that I may earn a small commission for purchases through this link at NO extra cost. This helps me continue working on my website. Salamat!

Costa Rica




Chambres La Belle Vue

€60 for 2 including breakfast in summer/ peak season 2022

 One of the best bed and breakfast we've stayed at. Very personalized. Clean and cozy room and bath. Breakfast at the garden. Great view of the citadel on your way up (it's uphill to the place).



Prista Guest Rooms 

< €30 for 2 in fall 2022

Walking distance to the plaza and restaurants. Newly built, clean. Washing machine has a dryer which is rare at this price point.

Veliko Tarnovo

Honey I'm Home Apartments

< €40 for 2 in 2022

Very central and within the old town. Simple studio loft with a basic kitchenette.


South Panoramic Apartment in the art district of Kapana

€40 for 2

We really love this apartment and it really felt like home in Plovdiv.

Rila Mountain



Lecce, Apulia

ConVivo Apartment - Palazzo Galateo

$ mid-range, with discount for weekly bookings

Very spacious apartment. They have 2 apartments in the complex and we chose the one with terrace and we also had our own rooftop here. It's a stone house with Lecce stone that was renovated with modern comforts. Perfect location within the old town but not busy, just 2-minute walk to restaurants and tourist sites.

La Belle Ville

< €150 for 2 in 2022 (before summer peak season)

This was newly opened (2022) and you can really feel and smell that it's new.  It's a small room but very good value for money considering the price of other hotels (hotel prices in Paris are freaking high! ). They also provide high quality toiletries, snacks, tea and coffee.

It's not in the center but it's right next to the metro. You would need to use the metro to get around Paris anyway so there is not one center. The hotel has a good pizza restaurant and a nearby boulangerie. The prices are reasonable in this neighborhood.

This is a hotel and there is no kitchen but they provide a kettle and coffee mugs. We stayed here for a week and busy doing touristy activities in Paris. It isn't a place for long term stay, there's no place for working.





Hunedoara (Corvin Castle)


La Gomera

Casa Panama

< €58 per night for 2 people in 2022

A rustic renovated farm house in Hermigua. Nice terrace with gorgeous view of farm terraces. Bonus if you love cats and goats.


Finca de los Abuelos

€78 for 2 people, price increase for more guests

This 200-year-old finca is the best place we stayed at in 2022.  Not only was it great value for money, it was also super functional and had the most homey feeling. Plus, the design and every detail was stunning! When I say every detail, even the door stopper is a work or art.


Tenerife (Arafo)

Finca La Casita en entorno natural

< €180 for 4 people in 2022

In my top list of favorite. It feels like a family vacation house. It has a swimming pool, billiard pool, garden, sundeck with a view of the coast.

Tenerife (Candelaria)

Donde Brilla el Sol

Very affordable. Situated in a residential area and walking distance to restaurants. We stayed here for one night when we arrived in Tenerife. I recommend this for short stays as there is no kitchen. Breakfast is included.
