In short, a secret hotel is a property, with available suites, that does not like to advertise cut rates. In return for listing without stating their name, guests economise as much as 50% off their guest room when they book with Hotwire and as much as 35% when they book via Lastminute. As soon as you pick your dates and city, you’ll be given the secret hotels with available guest rooms. You will then be able to cross reference against each other by looking at their star rating, where they’re located as highlighted on Google Maps and their list of services in the description. Another helpful tool is the Tripadvisor rating displayed next to each property on Lastminute and Hotwire.
So whilst you don’t know the name of the establishment till you’ve booked it, the risk is minimised by the sheer quantity of facts revealed about every one. For instance, if you book a 5 star in Soho with an award winning restaurant, how wrong can you go? Of course some listings have less details, so for some people this is more of a gamble.
