Check Your Hotel Out Before You Check In

Surely a nice view of the harbour bay in Hong Kong would tempt you to book that expensive room. Perhaps the room with a view of the golden gate bridge in San Francisco is ideal for a memorable stay. But many a time we often overlook details in a hotel booking that lead to a lot of stress and possibly ruin a good business trip or a holiday. Here we discuss a few important points that you can check with your travel agent to avoid disappointment.

Amenities Fitting Your Purpose
If you are travelling for business with a packed schedule it could be useful for you to book a hotel with a good gym which is open early morning and late at night. If you are on holiday a nice swimming pool with a Jacuzzi could be more important than a gym. When on holiday if you want to sweat it out it could be best done by jogging where you can explore the city. Some hotels have sauna, steam bath and many more facilities.
There are many aspect of breakfast that you need to check when you book a hotel. Firstly it's important to know whether it's included in the booking. Some hotels could charge you anything between $20 to $50 or even more if it's not included and you want to add it later. It is also important to know the start and end time of serving breakfast. Often business travellers have to leave the hotel early and holiday makers wake up late and both miss the most important meal of the day. It's always good to be informed so that you don't miss important things in life
Other miscellaneous points to check include whether the hotel provides wifi as part of your booking or it's additional. If so whether it's for one device or multiple devices. Some hotels in Kuala Lumpur will charge around $25 a day for wifi access for a single device in this information age. Check-out time is also an important point to note before you check in. Additional charges could be imposed on the guest if you don't extend the checkout (if the hotel allows). These minor details make an impact for a worry free stay.
