Budget hotels – all mod cons?Back to Forum
I realise that many Business Travellers will be regular guests at high-end hotels with gym, spa, numerous restaurants and rooms with all manner of hi-tech interactive controls – a list so long most of us never even realise half of what’s available.
However, hotels at the budget end also want to ensure we don’t miss out on their comprehensive offering.
I stayed in a hotel in Central London a couple weeks ago (booked through a well-known online website) which detailed the following room facilities – ‘TV, air-conditioning, desk, towels, carpets and toilet paper’.
I can confirm that all advertised facilities were present and correct.25 Apr 2018
Almost in reverse order of importance.
I stayed in a serviced apartment last year which did provide toilet paper and even had a lovely welcome pack of chocolate, bottled water, some high-end teas and even a coffee-making machine. What it lacked, however, was a bar of soap (or a dispenser).
Of course I went out and bought some, but since all previous occupants of the room would have suffered the same omission, it did make me wonder how clean the rest of the apartment was.25 Apr 2018
“Budget Hotels” – I wonder how these are defined? I was researching hotels in London recently for a client and came across a budget hotel costing just south of £200, whilst I ended up putting him up in a 3/4 star for around £130 per night…25 Apr 2018
I believe that we do spend a lot on our Lifestyle, Especially during travel, we ensure to get the best accommodation during this process we end up burning our pockets.
It is essential for us to make sure we save on our travel and accommodations. Maybe we can use E-comm sites for discounts and offers and not compromise on your accommodation or travel.
I generally save up by using Discounts and coupons from GrabOn, as they are more reliable.19 Jun 2018

That’s right, Martyn, London hotels have been getting ridiculous for years now. And in my opinion they’re not even good value for money compared with hotels in most similar-sized cities around the world. That’s why I prefer the Sofitel Heathrow despite the distance [disclaimer, I’m not associated with Sofitel].
Rob, your post cheered me up, carpets and toilet paper, whatever next?!19 Jun 2018
