BEFORE YOU GO
Do a hotel research on the net looking not only for the cheapest
rates but also considering the amenities and services provided,
location, possible references from other people. Travel
guidebooks can also be very helpful for choosing the hotel that
suits you best. Be as much flexible with your trip schedule as
possible. For example, business class hotels often have lower
As soon as you reserved the room(s) online, document all
information about the hotel(s). The easiest way is to print out
the whole page off your computer screen so you will have a clear
statement that you can use as evidence in case of misplacing or
incorrectly entering your information by a hotel clerk. Take a
copy with you, make another one for your relatives so they will
know when and where you are going to stay so they can contact
you in emergency cases.
Learn the proper check-in and check-out times. Confirm the
amenities and services the hotel provides. Ask for directions, a
local map. Get a card with the hotel's name, address and phone
number so you can show it to a taxi driver or a passer-by in the
street if you get lost.
Some hotels may provide extra services that you may not know
about unless you ask for it:
- laundry service, - hair dryers, - voltage
adaptors, - newspaper service, - complementary meals, - access
to fax machine, copier, printer, computer, Internet connection,
- cable TV, rental movies, video games, - portable beds, baby
cribs, - complementary shuttle service to airport, - rental safe
for your money, jewellery, documents, - telephone access
charges, - fees for using mini-bar, - guided tours, excursions.
AT THE HOTEL
Safety should be a priority for everybody and you have to take
some precautions. We devoted a whole separate page to travel
safety including hotel safety measures so we will skip this part
here. When you go out for the day, leave your key at the
reception desk. Confirm closing time. Some hotels do lock up at
night and you're expected to keep the key if you stay out late.
BEFORE LEAVING YOUR HOTEL
Check out your room for left-behind items. If you need extra
time for staying over the regular check-out time (usually it
ranges from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m), make a request in advance or the
hotel may charge you an additional night.
Review the hotel bill making sure that all charges are accurate.
We wish you a successful and safe trip!
