It might sound odd to book a hotel without knowing the name of it, but that’s exactly what thousands of customers around the globe are doing every year when they book a secret hotel. It’s not as high-risk as it seems though. For every secret hotel, you’ll be given a short passage about it’s amenities, such as if it includes a swimming pool or meeting rooms, the star rating and clues as to where it’s located. Hotwire and Lastminute both utilise Google Maps, so you’ll be able to view a highlighted zone of where the property is located. These travel providers also reveal the Tripadvisor rating (although you can’t read the reviews).
So why are secret hotels so sought after? Well, when you book a secret hotel, you’ll not only get the chance to holiday in a 4 or 5 star deluxe property but you’ll also save money! How much you save hinges on the travel agent, but with Lastminute you can save up to 35% and with Hotwire up to an incomparable 50%!
