2. Read reviews
Booking.com has over millions of verified reviews written by people who have stayed in a hotel and these opinions can be a great source of information. Hotels with high scores are worth looking into, but it is important to read the reviews and see what other guests particularly liked and disliked.
3. Choose your location wisely
The location of a hotel is something which is pretty important for an enjoyable stay. Find out where you want to go and what you want to do and research how far away it is from the hotel. What may seem like a great bargain may be a hotel in an area from where you have to take long bus or train rides to get anywhere. This is a waste of your money and your time.
Tip: Booking.com has a handy map to compare locations.
4. Services and facilities
Find out whether the hotel charges you for particular services and facilities such as wifi, room service, parking, breakfast, fitness center, bicycle rent and laundry service.
