It may sound atypical to book a hotel without being told what it’s called, but that’s precisely what thousands of travellers all over the globe are doing every year when they book a secret hotel. It’s not as dangerous as it seems however. For every secret hotel, you’ll be given some information detailing it’s facilities, such as whether it includes a swimming pool or meeting rooms, the star rating and an idea of where it’s situated. Hotwire and Lastminute both utilise Google Maps, so you’ll be able to view a marked region of where the property is located. These travel providers also show you the Tripadvisor rating (although you can’t read the reviews).
So why are secret hotels so popular? Well, when you book a secret hotel, you’ll not only get the opportunity to holiday in a four or five star luxury property but you’ll also save money! How much you economise on hangs on the travel provider, but with Lastminute you can save up to 35% and with Hotwire up to an unbeatable 50%!
