Determine your budget
Since it will largely depend on how much money you are willing to spend on accommodation, make a budget beforehand so that you do not have to worry about expense on other things during your visit. Most of the luxury hotels that provide you with comfortable rooms demand high charges, but the services often come with plenty of amenities.
List your preferred amenities
Amenities are often the most important factor that will help you find a good hotel room. If you are looking for a simple, no-frills accommodation, you have a huge range of options at your disposal. No-frills room may typically include a clean room with a ceiling fan, a bathroom and even TV or telephone. Maybe a room full of state-of-the-art amenities qualifies as “good” in your opinion; in that case, you can find a list of luxury hotels. If you are staying in an expensive luxury hotel, you do not have to worry about finding a good room as big hotels usually care for their customers and avoid giving bad service.
Read online reviews
Online reviews can help you a lot in your search for a good hotel room. No matter what city or country you are planning to travel, you will always find plenty of online reviews on hotels and rooms, written by visitors. Personal views and experiences can help you more than any travel guide. Compare different reviews and come up with a sensible option. Remember that hotels offer a wide variety of rooms, with different prices. So, do not decide on a hotel after reading a review or two.
Get in touch with the front-desk
If you have booked a hotel room through an online travel agency, try to get in touch with the front-desk person days before you are scheduled to arrive. Make a phone call and ask to talk to the front-desk person. Tell the officials that you are going to stay in the hotel and you want the best service. Front-desk employees know which rooms are best, so it is worth getting in touch with them beforehand.
