Smart holiday, Hotel reception

Accommodation in a bad hotel is one of the major stress factors in travel: filth, noise, very small rooms or excessively high prices are some details able to ruin your vacation. There are, however, ways to avoid sitting in a bad hotel if you are willing to invest time and energy in its election.

Here are 5 ways to avoid sitting in a bad hotel:

1. Find hotels on the internet

Search the internet for the desired hotel. Check its official website and largest international tourism websites (Trip Advisor, Travelocity, Orbitz, etc.) and online reservation websites from abroad and from your own country.

Find reviews and read them to see people's impressions. Even though they are subjective, after a thorough reading you can make a clear idea about the services at that hotel. Do not ignore information from blogs or recent photos. Catalog photos are irrelevant in choosing a hotel about you know nothing. You can find the latest information including social networks, where hotels may have a profile.

2. Contact travel agencies

Enquire for travel agencies on the hotel you are interested. Their prices may be lower than the agency proposed the direct reception. In addition, a travel agent can clarify whether or not you need a hotel after a series of questions.

3. Avoid hotels transit

If you stay a few days in that hotel, do not opt for one night transit. These hotels offer minimal services and live mainly on account of tourists staying a night or two en route to a certain destination.

4. Ask locals

When you have nothing to set before, instead of randomly choosing a hotel, ask locals to head to a good hotel. You can get good tips from them, because they know the area and, in some places, it can put you in touch with the owner of villa or guesthouse.

5. Ask to see the room before paying

When you're on the road and need to quickly find accommodations, enter a hotel and ask the receptionist to show you a room before paying. That way you know for sure that you will not stay in a bad hotel.
