It may seem odd to book a hotel without knowing the name of it, but that’s precisely what thousands of guests all over the globe are doing every year when they book a secret hotel. It’s not as high-risk as it sounds however. For each secret hotel, you’ll be given a detailed description about it’s facilities, such as if it has a swimming pool or meeting rooms, the star rating and indicators as to where it’s located. Hotwire and Lastminute both utilise Google Maps, so you’ll be able to view a highlighted neighbourhood of where the establishment is situated. These travel providers also divulge the Tripadvisor score (although you can’t see the reviews).
So why are secret hotels so in demand? Well, when you book a secret hotel, you’ll not only get the chance to stay in a four or five star opulent property but you’ll also save money! The amount you economise on hangs on the travel agent, but with Lastminute you can save around 35% and with Hotwire around 50%!
