Booking for budget hotel accommodation online is steadily increasing
From students to families and business travellers just looking for a clean base to stay, budget accommodation is here to stay.
The popularity of independent travel seems to be responsible for this upcoming trend and hostel and cheap hotel owners are responding offering more services and comfort than ever before.
That being said, it does depend upon your destination. If you book a cheap hotel in London and want anything more than a base from which to explore the city then it’s highly likely that you will be disappointed.
Book a cheap hotel in Bangkok like the 3* Viengtai Hotel which comes has an excellent location and great online rates and you wont be disappointed.
If you have never booked a budget hotel before, then to get the most out of your stay you need to make sure that you will not expect too much or you will certainly be disappointed and if this is likely to be the case then its best to pay a little more to make sure you get what you really want.
Budget hotel check list
Budget hotels generally fall into the 1-2* category and have limited facilities
Location. Don’t always expect a prime location if you are booking a budget hotel. The location may be central but in a residential or rundown part of the city.
Shared facilities. Check the hotel description. You may have to share bathroom facilities though not always.
Room size. Expect your room to be a little cramped. Possibly not a wardrobe but hooks on the wall for your clothes.
Street noise. It’s highly unlikely that your room will have soundproofing.
Double beds. Probably not. More than likely 2 Single beds to sleep 2 people instead of 1 large bed.
To sum it up, if you are looking for a base with no frills from which to explore a city then you will get the most out of a budget hotel and enjoy your stay.
