If you’ve planned on visiting a particular city for a business trip or you’re planning to surprise the missus by taking her to a coastal city for a weekend getaway; you have to get the basics right in both situations. The basic thing you need to do is to book a room in the right hotel. Most people tend to compromise on the hotel that they are staying in to save money. All we are going to say is that there is a big difference between booking a hotel that is cheap and booking a cheap hotel. Do not worry about moving your stuff. We have Hunts International (professionals in removals to France) to take your back.
Location is everything when it comes to booking a hotel. There is no point booking a hotel in a remote location because it offers you the cheapest deal; the only reason that you’re getting the cheapest deal is that the hotel is located so far away. Remember that if you are going for a business trip, you’re meeting or conference will most likely be located at the heart of the city and you would then be required to shell out a lot of money to travel to and from the hotel. What you save in hotel rent, you end up losing in cab fare. The same is the case for hotel rooms booked for vacation purposes; for example, if you want to enjoy the beaches, it makes so much sense to book a moderately priced hotel that is walking distance from the beach. Firstly, you would save a lot of money that would otherwise be used to pay for the cab ride and secondly, hotels located near tourist attractions tend to offer greater food and beverage choices when compared to hotels that are located in remote locations.
The reputation of a hotel is very important. If the hotel you’re booking has gotten a bad rep online, figure out why. Only reviewers tend to be a mixed bunch; most reviews tend to be honest and straightforward. But that doesn’t mean you should take the reviews without a grain of salt. If you’re hotel generally has a low rating due to a number of parameters then it is time to look for a new hotel. Most online review sites for hotels have parameters such as cleanliness, service, food, location, ambience, etc. Say for example the hotel is located close to your location of travel but the food is poorly rated, then it is okay to book the place as you can simply go somewhere else to eat. But if the general consensus on all criteria is poor; then look up other hotels that may be priced a little higher but offer a better experience.
