Four Tips to Find The Best Accommodation For Your Vacation
1. Choose the location carefully
Location is an important factor in choosing accommodation. Before booking any place, you should consider:
- How to go there from the airport? Does the hotel provide airport shuttle?
- Is it near the center/ train station/ bus station?
- Are there any restaurants and shops around?
- Is it easy to reach the main attractions of accommodation?
There are several cheap accommodations in booking sites, but lots of them are far away and not convenient to reach or commute.
Unless you’d like to take a cab or get on a long bus/ train ride every time, you should stay in the central area close to public transport, airports, local attractions, restaurants, and can get out and walk to most things.
2. Check the facilities & services
It is worth checking the facilities and services carefully before booking your stay. Some accommodation may charge for necessary facilities such as wifi although major places don’t.
Some places may have a restriction on using time of services.
For example, you cannot use the hairdryer after midnight till 6 am, or you will need to leave the hostel from 10 am to 2 pm during the stay for cleaning purposes
Also, you should check other facilities such as parking, swimming pool, spa, gym, washing machine, etc., to have a great stay.
3. Book early
Don’t book at the last minute because the price can go up or the place is sold out. The worst thing is opening the browser to book for your dream place and realize that it is sold out on the day you intend to stay.
4. Don’t hesitate to ask
If you have any questions or inquiries regarding the facilities, services, etc., don’t hesitate to email or call the property. Sometimes you can even add more services with discounts by negotiating with the hotel.
Also, it is recommended to double-check with the property to make sure that your booking is correct.
