Tips for Choosing A Hotel
1. Prioritize your needs Focus on hotels that will best meet your needs. Amenities, location, and price all come into play in making a determination. However, do you really care about a spa that you wont use? Or a pool when it’s the beach you are after? Or do you want the coziness of a small bed and breakfast? So, it is very important to look at the photos of the hotels ONLINE, ask around for recommendation, check user review at a few website for reviews (likewww.hotels.com) or you can call the hotel and ask them to explain what they have got to offer and who or what age their regular customers are. This would be helpful for you to select a hotel that you want.
2. Knowing what facilities are included in the price In some countries, the bathroom facilities will determine the price of the rooms. Example are France, a bathroom with tub will cost more than a bathroom with only shower. If you want a double bed, you should request one because twin bed is very common for all the hotels room. If you would prefer an in room safe or an air conditioning room, ask the hotel whether there is any surcharge. Please bear in mind that your assumptions on what to expect may sometime disappoint you, so it is important to ask exactly all the details of the room for the price you are paying for. For exotic and unique properties, it is even more important to call the property or do a little research if you do not like suprises.
Some hotels offer free internet service and some hotel do have charges for using their internet service. And also, some hotel only provide free internet service (WiFi) at their lobby and there is charges if you want to use internet service in the room.
3. Ask for restaurant or room service. Many hotels offer room service, but not necessarily 24 hours a day. Moderately priced business oriented hotels often keep menus of local restaurant that will deliver to your room.
4. Expectation for budget hotel For budget hotel accommodation, do expect some facilities are missing. This would include swimming pool, spa, Or even internet service is not available at these budget hotels. So, do take note that the price you pay would come in line with the facilities that is available in the hotels. Mostlikely budget hotel would be a hotel where will offer you only a comfortable sleep in the night time.
