Location matters. When you’re a tourist in a city that you’re not familiar with, you want to be located nearby or in the centre where you can easily walk around and see all the sights. Hardly anyone wants to be stuck in the suburbs on their holiday, having to commute an hour just to get to the city. Of course, unless that’s what you prefer. For most of us, we want to be able to walk out of our hotel and be right where the life is. Many cities have historical areas, areas dedicated to pubs and bars, fashion district, art district, etc. You just need to pick an area which suits your needs.
When travelling, if you can pay a decent price for an interesting and unique hotel, why wouldn’t you? For example, London is a city that offers travellers with a variety of options. Depending on what you’re looking for, there are many hip hotels in London. You can stay in historical hotels, yacht hotels, floating community hotels, and more. It really depends on the atmosphere you’re interested in experiencing. But it’s important that you do, within your budget, find a hotel that’ll provide you with an atmosphere that brings you inspiration and relaxation.
No one wants to go broke while travelling, however, it’s easy for the accommodation to take a big chunk of your budget. You can find quality hotels at an affordable price, you just need to hunt for the deals. In addition, the season you travel in also affects the price.
At the end of the day, the hotel could be beautiful but if they don’t offer the basic amenities, they’re not worth it. After a full day of sightseeing, you want to be able to lay on the bed, peek at your social media and work emails. But what if your hotel doesn’t offer free wi-fi? It’s 2018, cities are now making their centres wi-fi, there’s no excuse for not having it – unless that’s their gimmick. Make sure they offer your basic hotel amenities such as laundry, complimentary tea or coffee, wi-fi, and TV.
If a hotel is not reviewed, the odds are you’re not going to choose it. You want to make sure that the hotel you’re going to stay at is relevant on social media. This doesn’t mean they need to be plastered all over Instagram, but they do need to appear on Google, have a website and reviews from customers. If not, you’re running the risk of walking into a situation that you weren’t expecting. The last thing you need is a bed bug infestation in your luggage or a hotel room which looks nothing like the photos.
