4 Things to Consider When Choosing a Hotel or Resort

Yay! You finally booked your much-needed trip! But were you able to find a room for your vacation already? If you are still on the hunt for a place to stay at, then consider these factors before you select a hotel or resort. These will help you choose the perfect accommodation that will best fit your wants and needs!


Is it near bus stops and train stations? Is it close to the different spots written on your travel list? These are just some of the questions you will need to ask yourself before hitting that “book now” button. You will also need to consider what type of trip you want. Do you want to relax away from the city noise or do you want to stay in the heart of the most action-packed town? Decide carefully and make sure to read up on that area first.

Online ratings and reviews

It is always safe to consider all your options. One of the best ways to see if a hotel or resort is worthy to stay in is to look for guest ratings and reviews online. The more positive reviews they have and the higher ratings they get, the bigger the chance you’ll enjoy your stay there too! This may not be the ultimate deciding factor, but it can be an excellent basis. Also, try to look for their TripAdvisor badge or other OTA recognitions.

Amenities and other onsite services

Will you be going on a staycation and be spending most of your time indoors? Or will you be leaving the hotel every day and be staying out most of the time?

Your answers will indicate the amenities and services you’ll most likely need. If you’ll be staying in, then you might want to choose a hotel with wifi, a pool, a gym, or a spa. Why leave when you can pamper and enjoy yourself right there and then, right?


Last but not the least, you’ll need to consider how much money you can allocate for accommodation. You can go for a simple yet homey room or choose to treat yourself by booking a spacious suite. Your call!
