Essentially, a secret hotel is a hotel or resort, with available guest rooms, that does not care to market reduced rates. In return for listing without stating their name, guests gain from up to 50% off their suite when they book with Hotwire and as much as 35% when they book with Lastminute. After you pick your dates and destination, you’ll be given the secret hotels with available rooms. You can then cross reference against each other by checking their star rating, where they’re situated as marked on Google Maps and their list of features in the description. Another practical device is the Tripadvisor rating displayed next to each property on Lastminute and Hotwire.
So despite the fact that you can’t see the name of the hotel until you’ve booked it, the risk is lessened by the sheer quantity of facts divulged about each property. For example, if you book a five star in Belgravia with a critically acclaimed restaurant, how risky can it be? Naturally some secret hotels have fewer details, so for some people this is more of a gamble.
