As the name suggests, it has a bed you can sleep in and some fresh breakfast to wake up to. A ‘bed and breakfast’ is usually hosted by private homes that have a few rooms ready for your accommodation and the hosts live in the house. You can either sit together with the other guests at the table and eat breakfast or have breakfast inside your room, whatever suits your comfort. Here are some reasons why a ‘Bed and Breakfast‘ is an ideal choice while you travel.
If you’ve stayed at hotels, you might know that they charge way too much for a night and breakfast is not guaranteed at all hotels. Bed and Breakfast (B&B) do not charge as much as hotels; in fact, it has a more personal touch. Even when you travel to larger cities, it is economical to opt for a B&B.
Continental or traditional?
As the saying goes, ‘When in Rome, do as the Romans do’. Would you rather have the authentic homemade traditional breakfast of the place you are visiting or would you want to settle for the standard continental breakfast? A B&B offers a variety of home-cooked authentic breakfast options.
The local guide
If you are a tourist and want to go around for sightseeing, you might want to approach a local person who has lived in the city for years rather than asking at the reception of a hotel and getting a pamphlet. You could talk to your hosts at the B&B, and they will understand what you might enjoy the most and guide you and even tip you off about the best restaurants and places you could dine in. They host at the B&B would be more approachable and passionately willing to help you.
A home-like feeling
A B&B is your home away from home. The host makes sure you feel at home by adding some homely décor and furniture in your rooms. It doesn’t really feel like a hotel but feels like you are in another house that you own. You could even consider a B&B if you are visiting a place you haven’t seen in your state or city, it could give you a completely different experience and a staycation like an experience and is pocket friendly as well.
Conversations, learning and connections
Staying at a B&B is like meeting new friends or even family. You eat together, have conversations about the place and learn so much from the people who are also visiting. You could indulge in fun conversations and have a wonderful time while you are away. Conversations help you build connections with people who were once strangers, and this could turn out to be a great vacation for you.
