eSky – Hotel reservation in Ireland and abroad - Hotels, apartments, cheap accommodation
Trips of all kinds have become available to many people in the recent years. Cheap accommodation is not just available in camping areas and tourist chalets anymore, but also in youth hostels and private apartments. Even the more expensive and luxurious sites often bet on clients with an average budget, tempting with numerous deals. How to choose the cheapest, but also the best amongst all offers available on the market? We will let you in on how to search them and what to consider!
Apartments from around the world
So-called aparthotels are an increasingly popular site for accommodation. They come with many advantages: they are larger than hotel rooms, they guarantee access to the kitchen, a private bathroom, they offer comfort and are frequently located outside the inner centre of the town, thanks to which they allow to get to know its true atmosphere. Another benefit are the prices. Like in every case, those can vary but if we consider their size, it will probably turn out that the costs will be much larger than in a hotel. However, we must give up service and breakfast, daily replacement of towels or even bedding, and accept the lack of a reception desk and staff ready to help in every situation. Apartments are the cheapest choice for people travelling in larger groups, especially in traditionally expensive countries such as Norway or Switzerland.
Hotels are not necessarily a synonym of costly accommodation; in many of them we can find really cheap options with a high standard. Sometimes all it takes is just a quick calculation to see how much we will save on giving up a hotel in exchange for another place of stay. It might turn out that breakfast which we prepare ourselves increases the price of stay, similarly as an own supply of water, coffee or tea. Using websites of intermediaries as well as search engines, you can easily and quickly compare prices of hotels at the destination and even spot very attractive deals - sometimes the prices fall by as much as 70%! On top of that, a large part of hotels is situated in city centres - in many metropolises, the use of public transport can be quite expensive, so a hotel situated near the key attractions can turn out to be a serious saving.
How to book an accommodation?
There are many ways to book an accommodation at a hotel, apartment or any other place. Of course, all this can be done on the hotel webpage, but when choosing special portals dedicated to accommodation, it is easier to save and compare various options, e.g. prices of individual rooms in the same hotel. On top of that, there is no need for traditional bank transfers; you can quickly pay by card. It is easier to separate cheap hotels from other options and choose only those which we find the most attractive.
