Maybe you're nostalgic for the days when you fumbled between marks, pesetas, and francs, but there's one thing we all miss about the pre-euro era: the strong dollar. These days a trip through the Continent can wallop your wallet, and the euro is getting even stronger as the summer season arrives (we won't even mention what the British pound is doing to our humble greenback). Financial aid is here: We've found 12 hotels from Paris to Copenhagen that put a premium on comfort and good designwithout premium prices. Each is less than 250 euros a night for a room big enough for two (single rooms are less, but they're really just for one person). For up-to-the-moment exchange rates, use our currency converter
