Essentially, a secret hotel is a hotel or resort, with vacant suites, that does not like to promote cut prices. In return for listing without stating their name, guests economise up to 50% off their room when they book via Hotwire and as much as 35% when they book via Lastminute. After you select your dates and city, you’ll be shown the secret hotels with vacant rooms. You can then cross reference against each other by noting their star rating, their location as highlighted on Google Maps and their list of services in the description. Another practical tool is the Tripadvisor rating provided next to each establishment on Lastminute and Hotwire.
So although you can’t see the name of the property until you’ve booked it, the gamble is lessened by the sheer amount of facts revealed about each hotel. For instance, if you book a 5 star in Chelsea with an award winning spa, how wrong can you go? Naturally some secret hotels have less details, so for some people this is more of a gamble.
