    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.

    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.


    “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…
