Find a cheap hotel in New York

Discover New York

New York City, the Big Apple or sometimes referred to as The City that Never Sleeps. It was established in 1624 as a commercial trading post by the Dutch, and it was called New Amsterdam until 1664, when the colony became territory of the English. New York was the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790, since then it has been the country's largest and one of the most well-known cities. Every year, more and more low cost airlines start flights to this city, so you will certainly find a good offer, including a cheap hotel , if you look around on Liligo.com.

Many places and monuments in the city have become world-famous, for example the Statue of Liberty that was wondered by millions of immigrants when they entered America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Wall Street, in Lower Manhattan, has been a major global financial centre since World War II and is home to the New York Stock Exchange. The city has owned many of the world’s tallest buildings, like the Empire State Building and the twin towers of the former World Trade Center. Nowadays, the Manhattan area, just like Bronx, East Harlem and Brooklyn are popular touristic destinations, with some very cheap hotels , and plenty of companies to rent a car.

New York is the birthplace of many cultural movements, probably most known for the famous Broadway theatre. The Harlem Renaissance in literature and visual arts, and of course the hip hop, punk, salsa, and disco music, not to mention the abstract expressionism (also known as the New York School) in painting, all can be found here. You can easily access the programs and facilities, if you reserve your cheap hotel room in advance, and see after your visa, too. Have a nice stay in New York!

Some things to take care of when planning your trip

To have a holiday without setbacks, it helps a lot to take into consideration what simple measurements can be done that would save you many bad shots. First of all, always check your documents that will be requested at the entrance of your destination country, consult the competent government agency, and even if you do not leave the country, keep in mind that it is obligatory to carry along your identification papers. Moreover, many accommodations request documents at registration. You may also want to rent a car, so you'll have to take your driver's license with you (get informed about the international driving license, too). Do not forget your travel insurance, your health insurance card (we strongly recommend you to take your health card). There are some countries where a visa is required to be allowed to enter the country at all. But do not worry, in most countries you can enter and stay without visas or special permits for some months (usually 90 days).
A good tactic is to photocopy important documents you might need, so in case they get lost or stolen, it will be really useful. Furthermore, it is also a good idea to carry along two extra passport photos.

Thanks to the Schengen agreement, one can freely cross the borders of ‘Schengen countries’, so EU travellers travelling within this area won’t be asked to identify themselves. Even so, you should always carry along identity documents, because police might ask for identity checks, any time. The following countries form part of the Schengen Agreement:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Iceland (non-EU), Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway (non-EU), Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland (non-EU).
EU countries that do not belong to this agreement are: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, UK and Romania. Citizens outside the EU will need to apply for visas and documents to enter the Schengen area. The maximum length of stay for travellers is 3 months.
Bear in mind that some documents and visas are not that easy to get, one has to wait for them. Therefore it is recommended that you plan the travel and learn about these documents well in advance.

In addition to paperwork, when travelling within or outside the borders of the EU or the Schengen area, don’t forget to be informed of the required or recommended vaccinations in certain countries. If you know exactly the health care situation of the country which you plan to travel to, you can avoid many unpleasant surprises.
Again, please note that some vaccines require more than one dose, sometimes with large temporary spaces between them, so it is advisable to act well in advance. Be cautious with consuming food, especially fruits, and for your security, drink bottled water only.
Also, the maximum weight of your luggage is usually around 20 kilos –depending on the airline-, so it might be a good idea to make a list of most necessary things before packing your suitcase. Your passport (and anything fragile) is best to be guarded in your hand luggage that you bring along into the cabin.
Note that you can’t have scissors (or any kind of cutting or stabbing tools) with you, nor liquids of any kind (water, tee, juices and all types of cosmetics), or at least only a small amount.

Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that your luggage gets lost. In this case it might be helpful to have some clothes with you in your hand bag, until your luggage is found.
