How to find the best place to stay when arriving to a new country

The place where we will stay during our trip will represent a large percentage of the total expenditure we are going to make, so it is important that we choose a good site, since this depends, to a large extent, on our trip being unforgettable or a total nightmare. To begin with, you have to define what you are going to do during your trip and how much comfort you are willing to sacrifice to save money or to live a different experience.

 

If you plan to stay in a hotel you have to keep in mind that the best hotels do not always have to be the most expensive, you just have to keep these small points in mind and decide which of them you can sacrifice to a greater or lesser extent.

 

Location

You have to keep in mind what you want to do on your trip, and depending on it the location of the hotel is extremely important. If you want to be in the center of the tourist area a few minutes from the center maybe the hotels are more expensive; On the other hand, if you can afford a hotel not so central and further away from the tourist area you can save some money that you can spend on some whom you have during the trip.

 

Cleaning

Nothing says excellent quality of a hotel that the cleaning of it, not in all the hotels the cleaning is equally rigorous, if you are one of those people, like me, who can not stand being in a dirty room and less if it’s not up to you do the cleaning, maybe you do not want to save on this aspect and choose a hotel where cleaning is an almost religious norm.

 

Access to public transport

Many times this is usually the only method of transport, if we take into account that paying a taxi during our entire trip can make it excessively expensive, it is useless to choose a budget hotel if we save everything in taxis. Renting a car for a short trip is also usually a big expense considering that we have to pay for gas and insurance for the car.

 

Free WIFI

If you are one of those people who can not live without being connected, no matter where they are, it is important that you certify that the use of Wi-Fi is, at least, free. This will avoid having to pay an excessive cost to be connected with your friends and family.

 

Breakfast

The best hotels are those that offer you a good breakfast, so you can enjoy the local cuisine without having to spend too much money. When you travel you realize that usually the restaurants do not offer local breakfasts, if you really want to live a complete experience look for a hotel that offers you a local breakfast.

 

Now, what is the best way to know each and every one of the previous points? Simple, check the reviews of other travelers. Nothing more sincere than the opinion of a traveler who recommends or not a hotel. Avoid those hotels whose reviews are very bad or do not have reviews. Do not limit yourself to read only the reviews of a hotel on a single web page, search for reviews of different websites so that you have a more complete opinion of the hotel in which you intend to stay. Finding a good hotel is not easy, but it’s worth the effort.
