A hotel is defined as "an establishment offering paid accommodation in the short term." (see 1.)
In the first years of the hotel the accommodations were very basic, usually a room with a bed, a cupboard, a small table and a sink. Nowadays most rooms are equipped with modern facilities. In addition to bathrooms, there is air conditioning, a telephone, television, Wi-Fi (internet connectivity) and a mini-bar with snacks and drinks.
Hotel accommodations over the years have changed drastically. There are different types of hotels for almost everyone's taste, needs and especially budget. The two most important types of hotels are luxury hotels and budget hotels. Although both have similar basic facilities, these two types of hotels differ considerably:
As the name suggests, these hotels have been established for people on a small budget and therefore they want as little as possible to spend. The rooms in these hotels usually have basic facilities such as a bed and washing facilities and most have communal toilets. Most budget hotels are older. They are clean, but not as luxurious as luxury hotels. Some of these budget hotels are equipped with worn fittings and they offer nothing for free, except perhaps a simple breakfast or a newspaper that is sometimes included in the price they charge.
Rates for budget hotels vary greatly, depending on the location. In Los Angeles alone, budget hotels can count anywhere between $ 45 and $ 119 per day.
Luxury hotels are for people who are used to decorating their lifestyle. The employees of these hotels are specially trained to provide everything the guests need. They want to offer their guests all the luxury they want during their stay. These hotels are built in such a way that their guests & # 39; stay is absolutely as stress-free as possible. In addition to basic amenities in luxurious rooms, these hotels are usually equipped with spa services that offer massages, gyms with the latest fitness equipment, beauty centers offering a wide range of beauty treatments, swimming pools, bars and restaurants within the property and a laundry service.
These services naturally have a much higher price compared to budget hotels. Other services you can have at luxury hotels include free room service, free newspapers and even better channel selections on your television. You can even use bathrobes and slippers during your stay at these hotels.
As with budget hotels, the rates for luxury hotels vary enormously, depending on the location. Luxury hotels in London cost anywhere from £ 240 to £ 525 per day.
There is truth in the saying: "You get what you pay for." So, for people who have the money to spend on expensive hotel accommodations, staying in a luxury hotel would be best if they want the best service that money can buy. But for people who have a limited budget but need a place to stay while away from home, they can better stay in budget hotels.
For travelers who want to reserve their time far ahead in the hotel of their choice, they can go online and view the websites of different hotels around the world.
