Summer is fast approaching and if you're looking for a truly affordable hotel in Europe that doesn't involve surly front staff, decor from the 70s, walking up 10 flights of stairs, or a PC from the 90s that qualifies as the "business center", then you should check out Generator.
This hip hybrid brand of hostel and hotel rooms has opened properties in Barcelona, Dublin, Copenhagen, Venice and Berlin, all at seriously reasonable prices with shared rooms as low as 15 Euros. Even their two newest properties in the world's most expensive cities--London and Paris--are still wildly affordable thanks to a new 20 percent off promotion.
From now through August 31, Generator London (near King's Cross) and Generator Paris (in the 10th Arrondissement) are offering 20 percent off their rooms which range from dorm-style with en-suite bathrooms to private rooms with private balconies. Both properties have 24-lounge, cafes and nightlife venues. And of course, there is free WiFi here. (You can peep the inside of Generator London here.)
To book, select your dates and check the "Pay Now and Save" option. Rates for the private rooms in London were going for 53GBP in mid-June, while private rooms in Paris were at 67 Euros.
Not heading to Europe this summer? That's ok as more Generators are expected to generate within the next two years in Rome and Amsterdam as well as Miami and LA.
As floor themes, that is – while we wish our evening at Generator London would have included hanging out with Sacha Baron Cohen, Julie Andrews, and Daniel Craig (imagine that), they were only there in spirit, bringing a splash of different color and design to the just-reopened hostel-with-style in Bloomsbury.
Available by the bed, Generator is taking affordability to the extreme, with starting rates at £12 ($20) a night – but the real gems to us are the private twins starting at £24.50 ($40). Share it with a friend and you’re looking at nightly cost of $20 per person, for a clean bed in a private room with a modern bathroom. You can’t go wrong with that in London, and could easily do much worse for more money.
Straight after the €1 flash sale at Generator Barcelona this week that we hope some of you were able to take advantage of, the stylish hostel brand is ready to welcome you back to Generator London, following its multi-million pound overhaul.
We headed over to the city’s Bloomsbury area to have a look – and there was a lot to see, and lots of people had shown up to browse the public areas, listen to the live music, and sample the specially created gin, elderflower, and Earl Grey tea cocktails.
The Generator hybrid hostel-hotel brand always offers cool accommodations for an even cooler price but on March 18th you'll be able to nab a bed at the Generator Barcelona for just ONE EURO. No need to read that again. It really says ONE EURO.
The hotel is offering a 24-hour flash sale from March 18th at 1pm (local Barcelona time) to 1pm on March 19th. Here are the details:
· Guests can book as many beds for as many nights as they like.
· The sale is only for the dorm beds, not the private hotel rooms.
· It's first come, first served so you have to book fast.
· The deal is good for stays from March 18, 2014-March 17, 2015, a whole year!
· You will also be automatically entered in a prize draw to win a free upgrade to the Penthouse Suite. This room has its own lounge, kitchenette, and a huge terrace. Normally, it's €250 a night, but if you win, it will only cost you ONE EURO.
· Some more terms and conditions are listed after the jump.
· Sign up here to get early bird access.
Set in the Gràcia district, just a short walk from the epic Sagrada Familia by Gaudi, the Generator Barcelona features some incredibly cool spaces, including the lobby/social area which features more than 300 lanterns inspired by the city's annual Festa Major de Gràcia.
Room accommodations range from twin, triple, quad and dorm hostel rooms to private hotel rooms and the aforementioned penthouse suite. Hostel rooms typically start at 13 euros a night while hotel rooms go for 51 euros a night.
