Wherever you want to go or whenever you want to travel, it’s highly likely that you’ll have the option of choosing to book a secret hotel. In booking a secret hotel, you can economise around 50% when you book through Hotwire and as much as 35% when you book with Lastminute. But it’s not only the promos that are attracting guests. Most of the establishments in the secret hotels collection are 4 and 5 star, allowing you to holiday in luxurious accommodation for a fraction of the typical price.
To ensure you make an informed choice, there’s a couple of things to search for when choosing a secret hotel. Primarily check the star rating as this will give you a realistic idea of the calibre of the property. Secondly check what facilities there are in the description. If you’re visiting for a holiday, you might want somewhere with a pool, whilst business customers may be after a hotel with a board room. Finally, a few travel agents now include Google Maps, so be sure to check to find out approximately where the property is situated.
