Todmorden, England, United Kingdom

Two virtues were important. It was both cheap and easily accessible to public transport. For anyone who has not been to Scandinavia it's probably worth pointing out that cheap hotel stays are usually during the main summer season and/or at weekends. Even this one is cheaper on the weekend, but it's still cheap during the week and that makes it highly unusual.
It is about 10 minutes walk from the nearest metro station, about 23 minutes from the central station.
At weekends I should prefer to pay a bit more and be more central but during the week it did not seem like A LITTLE more!
Like most of its breed it is positioned near a motorway and if you have to sleep on that side of the building - do try not to! - earplugs are a necessity; I speak with feeling not having taken any!
