When planning on your next vacation, one of the first things you look for and spend a great deal of time on is picking the right hotel to stay at. It can often be a vexing and at times confusing task, if you really do not know what to look for. While the first thing people seem to worry about is the affordability (and rightly so), there is a lot more here than meets the eye.
Here are 7 simple and sensible tips that will help make your choice a lot easier and assist you in picking a hotel that fits your needs –
Location: This might seem like a simple enough choice, but a lot depends on the purpose of your visit. If it is strictly business, then pick one that is closest to your client’s location and in case it is for pleasure, then pick one that gives you easy access to all the tourist spots. Remember that the ones closest to the airport are considerably more expensive.
Extra charges on amenities: Do check on whether the hotel offers you all the other amenities that you need. For instance, if you are high on connectivity, then check if the Wi-Fi offered is free and unlimited.
Stars on offer: More the number of stars a hotel has been accredited with, more the luxury on offer. That also means, you will most likely will have to shell out more. Stars are generally a good way of knowing the facilities and quality you can expect along with cash you will need to shell out.
Facilities on offer: Check for facilities such as restaurants, spas, conference rooms and refreshing pools, depending on what your interest and needs are. Here is no point having to travel a long way for a few basic facilities.
Family and kid friendly: If you are planning a family vacation, checking how safe the area in which the hotel is located along with how ‘family-friendly’ the hotel itself is, makes for an absolute must.
Accommodation and reviews: how clean, comfortable and warm are the hotel rooms? Remember that for kids, hotel TVs are still important and strangely enough, they spend plenty of time in front of the TV! Check out the virtual views of the rooms online and do go through customer reviews on third-party sites to be sure.
