Book in Kensington and we throw in Free Breakfast!

Secret hotels are becoming continuously more in demand, and with that additional travel providers are providing opaque booking deals. As a rule, all the travel providers provide the star rating for each property and notes on the area and services so you can make a knowledgeable choice as to whether the property is for you. Lastminute also integrate Google Maps for each listing, with a marked out area of where the hotel is located within. It’s also worth pointing out that usually the name of the secret hotel will allude to it’s location. For example Hotwire list their secret hot rate hotels under a title clearly related to a district or monument.

So why do these hotels choose to list in secret? The hotels in the secret hotel collection are often four or five star, and so don’t care to discount their guest rooms publicly. They therefore list without stating their name, so that they can keep their rooms full without guests waiting for reduced prices before they book. The secret hotels idea ensures both the customer and the establishment are happy.
