When we go on holiday one of the most important parts of our trip is the accommodation. Flights are flights, you will only be on the plane for a short time so it doesn’t matter too much about the level of comfort. But for accommodation you know that you will be spending a number of days there resting from an action packed holiday. A good hotel can make or break a holiday, I am sure that we have all had bad experiences with a hotel and remember how it made us have a worse time than we planned.
The best way to get the best hotel for you and your group is to follow a few simple tips. I followed these tips for my recent search for Marrakech hotels, it meant that I ended up in the perfect place for me and my family. If you have some tips that you don’t see here in my list then please enter them into the comment box below, as a travel community it is great to share those tips that we can’t do without.
This is very important. You don’t want to be right in the thick of the action where it is noisy and difficult to relax and more do you want to be in a place that is so far away from the sites that you have to spend a long time and a lot of money on transport each day. So look at the map and see where the sites are and choose a hotel in close proximity to them.
Consider your needs
Your needs will depend on the type of holiday you are going on; a family, couples or friends holiday will all have different needs. If for example you are taking your kids with you then it is important to see if the hotel has facilities for children and is family orientated. If you are going with your partner then you need to find a hotel that is quiet and intimate, you don’t want to be in a family resort.
Reviews and opinions
I can’t express enough how important it is to listen to the advice of people that have visited the area that you are staying. I know that it might not be possible to get info from friends or family, so all you have to do is go online and read the reviews from people that have stayed in the hotels you are considering. Listening to the opinions of others will allow you to make the best possible choice!
