Things you should pay attention to when checking in a hotel
Checking room quality
After booking at the hotel, you should ask the staff to let you check the room to see if the quality of the room is the same as the price you paid. First, you should check the mattress to see if it is thick, smooth, soft and comfortable. Remember, sleep is very important during travel, it can affect your mood.
You should also check the condition of the bathroom whether the toilet is clean, nothing smells, and the towel is new. And if possible, you should use the towel you bring, limit the use of towels in the hotel. Look in the closet and on the top of the cupboard if there is dirt or anything left by the previous guests. After checking, if you are unsatisfied, you can ask the hotel staff to change the room for you.
Be careful when staying at the hotel
For those who love posting pictures on social media, you can take pictures of anywhere in the room, but remember to never post the number of rooms on social media. The thieves may know the room number, sneak in and steal things.
Many cases of theft took place in hotels from budget to luxurious hotels. Remember that the hotel staff and the room cleaner can enter your room when you are away, so you should bring valuable items with you. Never leave precious items like phones, laptops, money, watches, passports in the room and go out.
In addition, especially for female friends, you should not open doors automatically when someone knocks on the door, even if they say "Housekeeping / Check room / Security”. Then you should look through the small eye hole in the door before opening to identify them.
Since there are many bad guys disguising themselves, be wary of the worst case. Before going to bed, you should leave the light in the bathroom, if it makes it difficult for you to sleep, close the door slightly for light. Do not turn it off, because when there is a situation, you will handle it faster and also make it easier for you to go to the toilet when you are still sleepy. You should also close all the windows before you go to sleep, the crooks can sneak into your room through the window.
Pay attention to your surrounding
Before entering the room, you should find an emergency exit along the corridor and see if there is any space in the room where you can escape easily in the worst case. In the event of an explosion, or something that affects your life, if you know the exit location, you will easily calm down to handle the situation.
Besides, you should check the items available in the room, see if it is not good, you should immediately report to the receptionist. Because when you check out the room, if the staff discovers the item in the room is damaged, then you have to pay for the item even if you don't do it. Remember not to smoke in the room and be careful when using fragile items such as glass, glass tables, white walls ... especially in large hotels, you will pay a hefty fine.
In addition to being able to book good hotels and carefully checking hotel information online, choosing good travel agencies is also a good option to ensure hotel quality that you stay during the trip.
