Selecting The Right Hotel For Your Family Vacation

Selecting the right type of hotel for the family vacation is an important factor. Hotel is the place which should feel like home. After all you would be returning to your hotel room after the day long out-door trips and hotel should be one place that should make you comfortable and at ease.

A new trend in hotel industry is “Serviced Apartments” which have all the features and facilities of a hotel with an added advantage of kitchen, self-service laundry and ironing facilities. These hotel apartments come in Studio, 1 Bed Room and 2 Bed Room apartments, which includes a full service kitchen, a dinning area and a lounge or sitting area which proves a big plus as you can get a good space, while a hotel room can be pretty crammed up for space if you are with children.

When travelling with children, access to kitchen becomes a big utility as you would be able to cater to their untimely hunger and snacks requirement. Online hotel booking sites now also include serviced apartment in their listings. When checking for a serviced-apartment, room size is the utmost important. A Studio apartment with at least 50 square meter in size will be a good buy.

You may also like to check on the facilities offered for families with children, like a dedicate play area or a small kids pool can be an added benefit.

Hotel booking websites have a guest review section where people who booked their hotel through the website write their comments about the hotel they booked and stayed in. Guest reviews is the biggest selection criteria as it comes from the real people who have experienced it first hand. Reading guest reviews is a good idea as it gives an idea about the services and facilities of the hotel you are intending to stay. Guest reviews can give you a good idea about the services, staff, rooms, cleanliness, facilities, location or any incident faced by the visitor. This will enable you to make the right decision about selecting the hotel.

Another must before selecting the hotel is checking the hotel map. Most hotel booking website like and do provide hotel location map. Checking the map gives a good idea about the area around the hotel. You would like to see the nearest underground train or bust station, nearest convinience store and surroundings around the hotel, which will give you a good idea of area well before you check-in.
