The great beds, linens and amenities are just some of the perks of staying at a hotel. However, while it may be fun, travellers need to be mindful of hygiene, safety and the overall offering.
Here are 5 things to do when you check into a hotel room:
Do a run through the room with a staff member: Hotel guests are allowed to ask questions. While you do not want to be that impossible guest who criticises every little thing, asking a staff member to do a site inspect with you could help improve your stay significantly.
Sanitise before use: Some hotels pride themselves in making certain that their rooms are clean at all times.
However, some hygiene issues may surface without the hotel even realising it. As a guest, it is advisable to sanitise the television remote, telephone and even the headboard before use. You will thank us later!
Check the prices of the mini bar items: Never assume that the mini bar is complimentary, even if it is at a 5-star-hotel.
Many travellers indulge in the items and only realise their grave mistake when they receive a hefty bill at the end of their stay. If you are unsure, rather ask!
