Whether you’re travelling to Cambridge or Abu Dhabi, anyone in the market to economise on their hotel should honestly consider booking a secret hotel. With thousands of hotels in the collection, you’re sure to discover a hotel to suit your needs. The whole idea of a secret hotel is that the name of the hotel is kept secret. That means you won’t be given the actual name of the hotel until the booking is confirmed but you can nevertheless have a genuine idea from the listing of what to anticipate. Hotwire and Lastminute both integrate Google Maps to highlight where your hotel is situated, and all travel agents state the star rating and give a brief list of services.
So why not just book a conventional hotel? Well when you book a secret hotel, you’ll save up to 35% off the usual room price when you book with Lastminute and up to an unbeatable 50% when you book with Hotwire. What’s more is that the majority of the hotels in the collection are four and five star, so you don’t have to compromise on quality!
