It might seem strange to book a hotel without knowing the name of it, but that’s precisely what thousands of travellers worldwide are doing each year when they book a secret hotel. It’s not as unpredictable as it seems though. For every secret hotel, you’ll be shown some information detailing it’s services, like if it provides a swimming pool or laundry services, the star rating and indicators as to where it’s situated. Hotwire and Lastminute both integrate Google Maps, so you’ll be able to view a highlighted area of where the establishment is situated. These travel providers also disclose the Tripadvisor rating (although you can’t see the reviews).
So why are secret hotels so popular? Well, when you book a secret hotel, you’ll not only get the opportunity to stay in a four or five star decadent resort but you’ll also save money! The amount you economise on depends on the travel agent, but with Lastminute you can save around 35% and with Hotwire up to an unbeatable 50%!
