Choosing the right type of hotel for a family vacation is an important consideration. The hotel is the place to feel at home. After all, you will return to your hotel room after a day's travel outside the door, and the hotel should be one place that should make you comfortable and relaxed.
A new trend in the hotel industry is "serviced apartments", which have all the features and amenities of a hotel with the added benefit of a kitchen, self-service laundry and ironing. These hotel suites are available in studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments which includes a full service kitchen, dining area and lounge or sitting area which is a big plus as you can get a good spot while the hotel room you can be quite crammed with space if you are with children.
When traveling with children, access to the kitchen is a great benefit as you can take care of their timeless hunger and snacks. Online hotel booking sites now also include a serviced apartment on their listings. When checking for a serviced apartment, the size of the room is extremely important. A studio of at least 50 square meters will be a good buy.
You may also want to check out facilities available for families with children, such as a dedicated play area or small children's pool can be an added benefit.
Hotel reservation websites have a guest review section where people who have booked their hotel through the website write comments about the hotel they have booked and stayed at. Guest reviews are the biggest selection criteria because they come from real people who have experienced it first hand. Reading guest reviews is a good idea as it gives you an idea of the services and amenities of the hotel you plan to stay at. Guest reviews can give you a good idea of the services, staff, rooms, cleanliness, amenities, location, or any incident that a visitor encounters. This will allow you to make the right decision about choosing the hotel.
Another mandatory before choosing a hotel is a check on the hotel card. Most of the hotel's booking sites, such as Agoda.com and hotelclub.com, provide a map of the hotel. Checking the map gives a good idea of the area around the hotel. You would like to see the nearest underground station or bust, the closest convenience store and the surrounding area around the hotel, which will give you a good idea of the area before registering.
