It might seem alien to book a hotel without being told the name of it, but that’s precisely what thousands of travellers around the globe are doing each year when they book a secret hotel. It’s not as unpredictable as it sounds though. For every secret hotel, you’ll be shown a detailed passage about it’s features, like if it provides a swimming pool or laundry services, the star rating and pointers as to where it’s situated. Hotwire and Lastminute both integrate Google Maps, so you’ll be able to view a highlighted zone of where the establishment is situated. These travel agents also show you the Tripadvisor rating (although you can’t read 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 prestigious establishment but you’ll also save money! How much you economise on is conditional on the travel agent, but with Lastminute you can save around 35% and with Hotwire up to an unbeatable 50%!
