Price From $93
With low prices and a high-profile address—it's in Structuralist architect Piet Blom's 1984 Cube Houses—this newcomer in Rotterdam, opened in June 2009, has raised the bar for cheap sleep. Highlighting the playful spirit of the buildings' design, interiors expert Edward van Vliet outfitted the 49 rooms with striped bedding in primary colors and lamp shades printed with geometric patterns. The five doubles and 13 quads, ideal for families, each have private baths; the rest of the rooms are dorm-style with shared facilities.
