4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the cities included 9 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Just returned from a 2 month trip using the 2002 guide. I found the recommendations for the restaurants to be excellent. After realizing that the Frommer's writers and I had the same tastes, I made it a point of seeking out all of their 'starred' recommendations for restaurants. The sightseeing descriptions and recommendations were also quite good. The hotel recommendations were not as good. A few of the hotels we stayed in that were not 'starred' or listed as a 'Find' were not as comfortable as hotels in other books.
We traveled with this Frommer's, Rick Steves, Lonely Planet and Rough Guides through France, Belguim, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Italy. We liked Rick Steves' recommendations for lodging, Frommer's for restaurants and both for sightseeing. Lonely Planet and Rough Guides were not used if in a Frommer's city. If in a Rick Steve's city (but not Frommer's) we used Lonely Planet for restaurant recommendations (not as good a Frommer's but better than Rick Steves).
Background: Two travelers, professional, early 30s with enough money to stay out of the hostels, but did not want to blow the bank of 5 star lodging. Rick Steve's packing philosophy. Both traveler's love to eat!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Capitals only 8 April 2001
By Tina - Published on
Format: Paperback
Frommer's does a good job with the general hints on travelling cheaper, but unless you plan on visiting only the major cities and capitals only, look for another book. There are 24 major cities and surrounding areas covered from Ireland to Budapest, but that's not many cities in comparison with all of Europe. I only will have a short time in Europe and that means that I will only be able to visit two of the cities listed and have to use another book for everything in between. Lonely Planet is much more inclusive and definitely covers the lower price scale.

5.0 out of 5 stars AFFORDABLE EUROPE AT ITS BEST! 14 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This guide keeps getting better year after year! I used the '97 edition to go to Prague and the '99 edition to go to Madrid and had a great time and saved lots of money. Now I'm planning to see London and Paris and the 2001 edition looks like all I'll need. Even the maps are looking sharper! Well done!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great student guide 19 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Coming from a person who thought that I was against travel guides, Frommer's was great. The restaurants were tasty and their descriptions were accurate, and the general information and tips about each city were very helpful. Often it was useful to have hotel information in the book so that you could call ahead of time from another city and make a reservation. I am a 22 year old semi-budget traveler, and many other young travelers that I talked to were disappointed with Lonely Planet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Frommer's 2001 Europe : From $70 a Day 17 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I recently returned from a 3 month tour of Europe and took this book with me. While it did have a number of major European cities in it the actual information about them was definetly lacking. I found my self usually better off with out a book at all as opposed to only having this one. Several other travelers we met felt the same way and some were lucky enough to have Lonely Planet guides. For the money spent I'll stick to them or Rick Steves in the future. i.e. This book would take you to the train station/ subway but then fall short on what the heck to do to get a ticket!!! Which is important information stranded in 20 different stations/ subways a month each with different customs. Frommer's did do an excellent job of pointing out all of the gay and lesbian districs and bars in each city and the gay friendly hotels and shops... but they also have a strickly gay guide to Europe as well. The amount of space used for this information could have been better allocated for more pertinent information. I'll have to give a thumbs down on this book. Take something else with you or take nothing at all.
