In my experience, bed and breakfast is one of the best ways to experience a new place. In many cases, room rates may be quite reasonable, despite the increasing number of high-end luxury B & Bs and inns, many of whom may even charge hundreds of dollars per night. At some budget-friendly B & Bs, you get a simple but usually comfortable room with unique decor. Shared bathrooms sometimes reduce prices, so if maximum privacy is important to you, check if your B & B accommodation offers a private bathroom.
B & B stands for "Bed and Breakfast" and now obviously we have discussed the "Bed" part of the equation. As for the "Breakfast" section, there is a range of options available. Some B & Bs will provide full breakfasts, and some even offer homemade ingredients, jams, marmalades or a variety of gourmet breakfasts. Others may only offer a simple continental breakfast. In larger cities, B & Bs may not even provide breakfast at all, so if a good morning is important to you, make sure to check if the accommodation you need actually includes breakfast.
Another advantage of B & B is that these places are usually private or couples, and they like to host people from all over the world. Often, the host ends up being fun to become your local local travel expert in the area. In any case, prepare a rather personal experience, as the host will usually share a room with the guest. Hotels are usually larger and have the atmosphere of a small historic hotel, so the atmosphere there will be less personal.
