Trendy hotel in the midst of Park Avenue

Whether you’re off to Helsinki or Melbourne, those hoping to economise on their hotel bill should honestly consider booking a secret hotel. With thousands of hotels in the collection, you’re guaranteed to discover a hotel to suit your stipulations. The whole concept of a secret hotel is that it’s a mystery. That means you won’t discover the actual name of the hotel until the booking confirmation but you can still have an accurate idea from the listing of what to expect. Hotwire and Lastminute both use Google Maps to highlight where your hotel is situated, and all travel agents include the star rating and detail the amenities.

So why not just book a standard hotel? Well when you book a secret hotel, you’ll get up to 35% off the normal suite rate when you book with Lastminute and up to an impressive 50% when you book with Hotwire. Furthermore many of the hotels in the collection are four and five stars, so you don’t have to compromise on the calibre!
