It may sound atypical to book a hotel without knowing the name of it, but that’s precisely what thousands of people worldwide are doing each year when they book a secret hotel. It’s not as unpredictable as it sounds however. For every secret hotel, you’ll be given a thorough passage about it’s facilities, like if it offers a swimming pool or translation services, the star rating and hints as to where it’s situated. Hotwire and Lastminute both utilise Google Maps, so you’ll be able to view a highlighted region of where the establishment is situated. These travel agents also reveal the Tripadvisor score (although you can’t read the reviews).
So why are secret hotels so in demand? Well, when you book a secret hotel, you’ll not only get the opportunity to holiday in a 4 or 5 star decadent hotel but you’ll also save money! The amount you save rests on the travel provider, but with Lastminute you can save up to 35% and with Hotwire up to 50%!
