The genius new way to stay in Europe's top cities for a pittance | The Sun

HOLIDAYMAKERS can now visit some of Europe's most popular destinations, without having to spend a fortune on accommodation.

Hotel costs can either force people to book places miles away from the best sights, or put them off booking their holidays altogether.

However, there are ways that tourists can ensure they get a good night's sleep that's both affordable and in a great location.

Hybrid accommodation brand Generator has announced the launch of 50 cutting-edge "Sleeping Pods" at two of Europe's most-visited cities.

The pods can be booked in Amsterdam and Berlin, offering travellers an affordable and private way to stay right in the city centres.

A night in one of the pods starts from £21 a night, and Generator claim they are "an exciting new alternative to staying in dorms and private rooms".

Each pod includes plenty of creature comforts for a relaxing stay, including a central control panel, light features, a mirror, and a charging station with a USB port.

They also have a smart card lock, a slow rebound memory foam mattress, a pillow, duvet and linen.

The pods are a great budget option for travellers who don't want to spend a lot on accommodation, but also aren't keen on sharing a dorm with others.

One traveller wrote on TripAdvisor: "Love having the pod beds which each have their own light and plug."
