In the vacation summer season, the most frequently heard question is “Where will you be vacationing this year?”. We recently told you how wonderful the mountain is in summer and why you should plan your family vacation in its embrace. Today we give you tips how to choose a suitable accommodation. 

We admit – choosing a hotel that satisfies the needs of parents and children is not always an easy task. To have activities for the little ones, to be at a convenient distance to key locations, to have opportunities for relaxation for the parents. A bunch of questions stand before anyone who has taken up this task. We could calm you down- the mission is possible. We give you 3 tips which help you choose a hotel for your dream family vacation.

1. Prioritize. Determine what is important to you.

In the abundance of offers and offers, one could easily get lost. Therefore, first define what amenities are important to you and what you would like to have in the hotel. If you have decided to indulge in an active family holiday, the key for you would be the location. It is important the hotel is close to the places you want to visit. If you plan to spend most of your time in the hotel itself, the amenities offered will be important to you. When doing research, it’s important to understand:

  • Where exactly the hotel is – Check which places of interest are nearby and what is the distance to them, are there restaurants nearby, what are the entertainment options in the area. 
  • What amenities are available – Ask about the dining options. Facilities such as Wi-Fi, parking, 24-hour reception, safe. Ask if they are free with an extra charge
  • Are pets allowed – If you choose a hotel where four-legged friends are welcome, you won’t have to part with them during your family vacation.
  • What are the options for relaxation – See what options the hotel offers for relaxation. Check if there is a relaxation area – pool, sauna, steam bath, jacuzzi. After all, vacation is a time to take a breath of fresh air and relax.
  • What’s there for the little ones – Find out what activities are offered for the little ones – is there a children’s corner and an outdoor playground. If the children are small, you can ask if a high chair in the restaurant, a cot or a bassinet are available.семейство в хотел по време на семейна почивка

2. Browse photos and read reviews

Our second recommendation when choosing a hotel is to familiarize yourself with the surroundings. The best way to do this is by looking at photos and reading what other guests have to say about their stay. You can visit the hotel’s social networks and see its Google business card.

Browse photos uploaded by both the hotel  and other guests. You get an idea of the comfort and coziness the hotel offers. Google allows you to filter reviews by different keywords. This way you can see what other guests are saying about the amenities important to you.

3. Check active offers

We recommend you book a room directly through the hotel’s website. Hoteliers often offer the best price for reservations made through their site. Remember, once you’ve chosen a hotel, to check if you could get what you like at a lower price. Check if the hotel has active offers at the moment and in case the answer is yes, take advantage of them.
