What would you prefer: B&B hostel or rental apartment in Europe, if you go on vacation with your family but can’t afford the high priced hotels?

It appears there is a flaw in this question. Accommodation options in Europe are more sophisticated than just BBs, Hostels (these two are not the same, actually), and expensive hotels. Furthermore, the diversity of the continent is overwhelming and accommodation infrastructure differs massively from one country to another.

For example, a very comfortable hotel in Montenegro, directly at the beach can actually be cheaper than an apartment in similar location, whilst hostels could be hard to find along the coast. The situation in Spain might be opposite, depending on the location. Whereas, in general, accommodation prices in Europe go up in the high season, in Finland it is not the case.

Think families who want to have econonimal holidays always prefer a rental apartment in order to have a kitchen. Thus they are independent of restaurant prices and completely free in their planning.

I am in agreement with Petra on this point, my wife and I invariably prefer to find a studio or small apartment where we have some basic amenities and are not tied to hotel facilities, this still leaves us free to explore the area and further afield whilst maintaining a temporary base, this is not always the cheapest option but the most suitable for us, we do not like to be 'organised' by tour companies with set itineries and have found some wonderful places by trial and error, I also think that the often used "green tourism" is sometimes used to make more money from a gullible public by the "Climate Change" lobbyists, no offense intended, just my view, regards to all, Tony.
