What criteria do I use to select a hotel?

Choosing a suitable hotel is often anything but easy. Of course, everyone has other criteria according to which they choose a hotel. That’s why I want to introduce you today how I and some of my reisetopia colleagues proceed when choosing a hotel!

The choice of a hotel can definitely be based on different criteria. For me, the following options come into question at first glance:

    • Room (size, furnishings, condition, bathroom)
    • Catering (breakfast, restaurants, bars, room service)
    • Recreational facilities (fitness, pool, spa)
    • Service (friendliness, additional services)
    • Location (area, sights, traffic connections)
    • Loyalty programme (preferences, points, lounge)

I assume that everyone finds a different weighting for these factors, which is why I want to say quite clearly that my opinion is certainly subjective. Nevertheless, I am also happy to hear from you why you decide for a certain hotel!

Criteria for a hotel – the room

The room is for some people at first sight the most important criterion for a hotel. I also see the room as one of the most important factors when choosing a hotel. But it also depends a little on where I am. In a holiday hotel like the Conrad Koh Samui or the Hilton Seychelles, the room plays an especially big role for me, but not so much in a city hotel.

In addition, of course, there are very different factors with the room criterion. For example, a modern and renovated room is very important to me, while the size is not too relevant for a comfortable design. Also very important for me: a nice bathroom with a good shower like the one in the Conrad Algarve!

Criteria for a hotel – the catering

For me, catering is only of limited importance when choosing a hotel. For example, I generally eat very rarely in restaurants, and even less so in hotels. Also otherwise I would not necessarily call myself a gourmet, which is why star restaurants are not important to me. Also a great bar is not relevant for me – unlike for my colleague Severin.

Nevertheless, I don’t care completely about the catering, I appreciate the Room Service, for example. In the Conrad Bali, for example, I also noticed it once at 3 o’clock in the morning, a quite comfortable affair.

But it is actually more important to me that the prices, unlike in Le Bristol Paris for example, are not completely different from good and evil and less that the food is of top quality.
