Let's be honest, not everyone can afford five stars, which is why so many people book at three and four star hotels. But before you start shopping and book the first budget hotel you find, there are a few things you really should know about.
The first is that each country has its own hotel rating system, which means that a five star hotel in London is not necessarily the same as a five star hotel in Australia or the United States. Each country has its own rating system, which could result in some confusion. In the UK, stars are rewarded with facilities, customer service and customer service, in France they focus on room quality, and in Italy they focus on cleanliness. Which means knowing the UK star rating system can help you look for hotels in other countries that offer the same amenities, services and customer service, even if they aren't rewarded with five stars.
In the UK, facilities and services are taken very seriously and any hotel lucky enough to have a five star status must provide research facilities and services to guests. They also need to have experienced, qualified and excellent staff who focus on providing the highest level of customer service, working to extremely high quality standards at all times.
The hotel should provide the highest level of cleanliness, be well maintained and offer delivery of any service to the highest standards. In most cases, a five star hotel will give you some benefits such as a fitness center and an on-site wellness center, which should give you a range of quality treatments provided by quality therapists. In addition, the hotel should also provide you with a twenty-hour front desk for added convenience.
It is always advisable to visit a new city or country and choose a five star hotel with a barrier service. The concierge has a wealth of local knowledge and experience. They can make recommendations and suggestions on what to see and do, book a taxi for you, or help you with public transportation. They can also book a theater on your behalf or book a dinner at a high-end hotel, saving you time and energy and reducing what you need to do during your vacation.
Furthermore, they should provide butler service. If you rented an apartment and had guests visiting for your evening meal, then a butler could be the ideal way to host the event, allowing them to dine, serve a meal and clean plates while keeping their glasses filled.
Most five-star hotels will have a choice of public areas. You should have a full on-site restaurant serving evening meals, and maybe even breakfast, they should also have a lounge bar or relaxing place where you can sit and chill, maybe having a coffee or cocktail before dinner, light snacks should be served here during the day. In addition, they should provide you with twenty-four hour service in a five-star quality room.
