To summarise, a secret hotel is a property, with available rooms, that does not care to market cut prices. In exchange for listing without stating their name, customers gain from around 50% off their room when they book through Hotwire and around 35% when they book with Lastminute. As soon as you pick your dates and location, you’ll be shown the secret hotels with available guest rooms. You will then be able to cross reference against each other by noting their star rating, where they’re situated as highlighted on Google Maps and their list of facilities in the description. Another helpful device is the Tripadvisor rating provided next to every property on Lastminute and Hotwire.
So whilst you can’t see the name of the property until you’ve booked it, the gamble is diminished by the sheer quantity of facts revealed about each property. For example, if you book a five star in Bloomsbury with a critically acclaimed spa, how risky can it be? Of course some secret hotels have fewer details, so for some this is more of a gamble.
