Who Are We?
WaytoStay.com was founded in 2022 by Lewis Ogden. After being frustrated by the lack of first-hand knowledge provided by other travel guides, I decided to create a dedicated resource for travelers of all budgets and types.
Our travel guides combine local and expert knowledge to provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date information when it comes to the key questions we all have when visiting a destination.
“When is the best time to go”, “Where is the best place to stay”, “What things can I do when I get there?”, “What is the weather like in June” and so much more.
We know how important finding the right destination place to stay can make or break your vacation. We use our firsthand experience together with all possible reviews, comments, and feedback to bring you the very best travel guides no matter where your trip takes you.
Our team ensures that all information on the website is backed up by thorough research, testing, and local expert opinions to provide you with a sound and reliable recommendation, be it a hotel, hostel, or sightseeing tour. For more information, feel free to contact us.
