Booking a hotel to enjoy a few days of relaxation is undoubtedly the most important decision you will make. There are several factors you have to put in mind while selecting or booking a hotel. These factors will ensure your stay is as comfortable and welcoming as possible.
- Location of the hotel
This is a factor that is considered as a key factor. Aside from the fact that you can use a vehicle or any other means of transport, the location of the hotel matters a lot. For instance, in a town like Naivasha, it is important to choose a centrally located hotel to stay, allowing you to move freely and avoid unnecessary costs in time and money.
If your main focus for stay is to get a resting place while touring attraction sites around then the proximity of the hotel to the attraction sites is paramount.
Still on location you will have to consider a hotel that is close to social amenities like shopping centers, banks & hospitals.
Price is a variable that you will need to assess in relation to the previous factor to make a final decision. In this case, the more the stars and better location, the higher the price. Ensure you look for attractive offers and packages that include other added services. To know this, you can always visit the hotel’s website for all the features.
Another option will be to call the hotel & ask if they have promos & discounts on your travel dates.
Since you are planning on a vacation, it is important to know the kind of service you would like in order to enjoy your stay. In this case, you may decide to choose a hotel with a swimming pool, a restaurant, a bar or even one with outdoor games among others.
It is also important to go through the hotel’s pages on various online travel websites like TripAdvisor & bookin.com just so that you can get to know what other travelers are saying about the hotel’s service delivery.
- Types of rooms
Select your room type according to the number of people you will be checking in with & your budget.
Various hotels have different room types i.e. eco, standard, superior, deluxe, presidential suite etc.
Usually the more room options a hotel offers the better it is for the travelers because it allows them to select rooms based on their budget.
Room selection is not only limited to a traveler’s budget but the gender, size, age & relationships of the travelers. Ensure you pick on the best option for a better and comfortable stay. You might also like to pick out a room with lovely views or pretty courtyard.
From time to time, there are hotels that provide fantastic accommodation with breakfast included. This factor adds more comfy to your stay as you get to avoid random movements to find your meals. Depending on your interest, you can choose on either bed & Breakfast, half-board or full-board.
- Guest Reviews
Before booking a hotel, it is important to check on the references. Fortunately, we have trusted websites such as Trip Advisor which show travelers reviews from previous guest to the various facilities listed.
This is certainly one of the most important aspects of booking a hotel room. It is undoubtedly very reliable as it eliminates any biased or unfair reviews.
