By Keith E. Webb VINE VOICE on September 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
I travel to Europe a couple times a year for business -without a corporate budget! I needed a guide book that would help me find reasonable places to stay and the main sites to see in various European countries during my trips. (I rarely go to the same city twice.)

The Rough Guides are GREAT guide books. They are not for the backpacker crowd like Lonely Planet tends to be, nor the rich. Rough Guides cater to that middle crowd - me. Their single country or city guides go into great detail on each location. Don't miss these guidebooks if you are traveling extensively in one country. However, that's too much for my 2-3 day visits. That's where the "Rough Guide to Europe on a Budget" comes in.

The Guide covers 30 countries and appears to be an update of the The Rough Guide to Europe 2006 (Rough Guide Travel Guides). It gives a brief history, tips on culture, hotel and dining recommendations. It lists details on the top sightseeing sites. The photos and maps are better than many other publishers' single-country guide books. On my recent trips I found I was just as informed as my colleagues who invested (weight being a larger consideration than cost) in a single country guidebook.

"The Rough Guide to Europe on a Budget" has plenty of information for the business or limited time traveler. If you are going to spend a week in a country sightseeing upgrade to a single country guidebook.

Not a good guide book. The reason we got this guide book was for good, cheap recommendations on places to eat and stay and it did not provide that. Nearly everything cost significantly more than the book said it would (we're using the 2014 edition in 2015). Also maps were occasionally wrong about locations of recommendations. As another review mentioned it is really just a list of cities and what's in them. The only sections we really used were descriptions of cities and "getting around" (although prices here were also wrong). Very unreliable, stick with lonely planet, they know their stuff.

I used this book to guide me through London, Dublin, N.Ireland, and Paris. Its focus on keeping the cost down is fantastic, and I never felt like it was leading me to trashy hotels or overly cheap food. Compared to other travel books I believe this simply takes cost into consideration where others do not.

Physically the book is stout at about 1.5 inches thick. It has held up well despite being stuffed into bags.

such a broad guide that in the end it becomes a mere list of country and city names too chuncky to be happily carried around
