In a nutshell, a secret hotel is a property, with vacant guest rooms, that does not wish to market cut rates. In return for listing anonymously, guests save up to 50% off their room when they book with Hotwire and around 35% when they book through Lastminute. After you choose your dates and city, you’ll be given the secret hotels with vacant suites. You will then be able to check them against each other by checking their star rating, where they’re situated as marked on Google Maps and their list of services in the description. Another helpful tool is the Tripadvisor rating provided next to every hotel on Lastminute and Hotwire.
So whilst you don’t know the name of the hotel till you’ve booked it, the gamble is decreased by the sheer number of facts divulged about every hotel. For example, if you book a five star in Knightsbridge with an award winning spa, how bad can it be? Of course some secret hotels are less detailed, so for some guests this is more of a gamble.
