About Us

1BB was created from a merger of 3 successful Bed & Breakfast sites in different countries with the aim of forming a truly global B&B directory site.

About the accommodation on the site

On this site, the term bed and breakfast includes a wide variety of accommodation styles, from traditional B&Bs to country inns, homestays, guest houses, lodges, cabins, apartments, small hotels, self catered cottages, eco-lodges, farmstays, guest ranches - you name it! Furthermore, while the term B&B is fairly universally known, they may also locally be referred to as a pension, pousado, zimmer, chambre d'hôte, casa particular, minshuku, ryokan, gästehäuser, herbergen, gîte, pensione, casa rural por habitacione, cafe et couette, pensão, gästezimmer, auberge, maison d'hôte, hospedaria, frühstückspension or a host of other names. Whatever their characteristics, these properties will mostly be independently owner-operated with a small number of individually decorated rooms. As the name implies, breakfast is still generally served.

The benefits of B&B accommodation

Staying at a bed and breakfast (or similar) is great value for money, will turn your trip into a unique experience, allows you to benefit from local knowledge, is good for the environment and directly supports the community you're staying in.
