Planning a 3wk tour of some of south-western europe next year, and have no hotel memberships or affiliations. We'll spend time in France, Germany and Spain, and maybe Switzerland and Italy. I'm more inclined to stay in independent properties just in general, but wondered if there may be considerable incentive to choose one of the bigger operators. We'll be travelling in April and I'm thinking in terms of around the 150/night mark (AUD) on average. Any suggestions? Cheers.

You may like to check out the Motel One chain. They are the same as the Hub by Peemier Inn, fancy rooms, but ‘budget’ (the only thing missing really is tea/coffee in the rooms, a fridge, and small bottles of toiletries... those are in large bottles).

They have hotels across europe including switzerland. Advance booking should get you in the €80 range. And those are fully flexible.

Bears Easyhotels hands down as it is a proper hotel.

If you have no memberships/affiliations I would be inclined to suggest apartment stays rather than hotels. Other than in Switzerland you are going to find some great stays within your budget -of course the bigger cities may be a stretch in peak times
