Budget-Friendly Boutique Hotels to Stay at This Summer

Budget-Friendly Boutique Hotels to Stay at This Summer

We’ve rounded up a selection of boutique hotels that have starting rates this summer of under $250/night. 

Bath, UK

A 1:20 train ride from London, the historic English countryside hamlet of Bath is a treat. Epochal baths from the Roman Empire, the bookish Jane Austin Centre, and Bath Abbey’s wonderous gothic architecture are all due to pique your interest. 

The Yard in Bath

The Yard in Bath is a 15-key, historic Georgian edifice that won’t infringe on your finances. From individualistic wall-clad fabrics to revived antiquarian furnishings, no two guestrooms are the same here. The indoor-outdoor courtyard wears Indian sandstone flooring and potted plants at one end, then olive walls and high-backed chairs occupy the other. 

Starting rate: $174/night 

Asbury Park, NJ

Just 70 minutes from NYC, this Jersey Shore beach town appeals to travelers of all ages. You’ll love walking down the seaside boardwalk and stopping into nostalgia-thumping places like the Silverball Retro Arcade, which has over 600 games on rotation, including vintage pinball machines. 

The Asbury Hotel 

The Asbury Hotel is the city’s hippest stay, blending the area’s Victorian-era history, rock-n-roll present, and shiny future. Rooftop lounge Salvation and outdoor movie theater Baronet are summertime vacation goals. Quintessential Jersey diner food with hints of creativity are what you’ll find at the onsite Asbury Lanes Diner.

Starting nightly rate: $242

Honolulu, HI

While Honolulu’s walkable, beachside Waikiki neighborhood is touristy, the isle of Oahu’s best gems are a skip away. Hike to the sea-facing summit at Diamond Head State Monument, tour the Pearl Harbor National Memorial, and learn about Hawaii’s erstwhile monarchy at the Iolani Palace.

Wayfinder Waikiki

At the Wayfinder Waikiki, brutalist architecture is adorned with tropical touches, geometric and floral patterns, and an assemblage of colors representing the land, sky, and water. The 70-foot saltwater lagoon pool, Hawaiian-inspired speakeasy Lost + Found, plus five-minute walk time from the beach cajole guests into staying here. 

Starting nightly rate: $220

Prague, Czech Republic

Picturesque Prague is one of Europe’s best economical places to visit. Shop hipster-esque Letna, walk the Charles Bridge, and learn about one of the continent’s most lauded authors, Franz Kafka, at the Kafka Museum.

Alamanac x Alcron

This refurbished, modish boutique hotel flaunts revived 1930s glamour. It features stimulating artwork, a coffee shop, and an unbeatable location steps away from Prague’s UNESCO-designated Old Town. Try the Czech menu at the onsite Acron Restaurant, then follow it with a cocktail at the Art Deco-injected Acron Bar. 

Starting nightly rate: $236

Sevilla, Spain

Located in the Spanish region Andalusia, a trip to Sevilla will leave you awed (forewarning: summers here are blistering hot). If you love history, visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site Real Alcazar is necessary. Those who have a penchant for design must see Plaza de España, a remarkable landmark built almost 100 years ago for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 that imbues Baroque Revival, Renaissance Revival, and Moorish Revival styles of Spanish architecture. 

Triana House Boutique Hotel 

Situated in Sevilla’s budding Riverside Triana district, each room here represents a different area within Andalusia. In one accommodation, green shades and olive-tree-printed wallpaper nod to Jaén’s droves of groves; in another, striped walls pay homage to the beach enclaves of the coastal city of Huelva. Guests love the communal courtyard and terrace, ornamented with terracotta statues.

Starting nightly rate: $91

Lima, Peru

Peru’s rollicking capital has one of the world’s best culinary scenes (Central Restaurante is a reservation-worthy eatery serving regional delights). In addition to eating, you’ll love Parque Principal and its artful flower beds, plus promenading around Old Town Lima’s Spanish Colonial-style buildings.

Villa Barranco

Located a block from bustling Lima’s beachside, palm tree-flanked Malecón, this nine-key boutique hotel lives in a restored 1920s home. Denizen artisans refitted the building with manicured stucco, idyllic balconies, and French terracotta roof tiles. The inside breeds a contemporary aesthetic with touches of Lima throughout, from antiquarian furnishings to local artwork.

Starting nightly rate: $225

Tuscany (Val D’Orcia), Italy

Tuscany’s Val D’Orcia houses Brunello di Montalcino, Italy’s most coveted wine—try it at Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona and the gracefully-aged Biondi Santi wineries. 

Locanda in Tuscany 

Live your best Tuscan life at the upscale, wallet-friendly, nine-room Locanda in Tuscany. Perks include the sunbed-lined swimming pool and onsite restaurant Taverna di Mozart, which serves season-changing, superlative Italian dishes. 

Starting nightly rate: $210

New Orleans, LA

Will it be hot and humid? Yes. But no matter the season, NOLA is fun. Explore the French Quarter and attend a jazz show at Preservation Hall, mosey around the National WWII Museum, and then learn about the city’s most famous festival at Mardi Gras World. 

Hotel Henrietta

Freshly debuted this year, the well-tailored Hotel Henrietta sits in the middle of Uptown New Orleans. Expect a balconied room staring out at the storied, oak-lined Saint Charles Avenue Streetcar Line.

Starting nightly rate: $160
