A hotel is defined as "a facility that provides payment on a short-term basis". (See 1.)
In the early years of the hotel, the accommodations were very basic, usually a room with a bed, a closet, a small table and a sink. These days, most rooms are equipped with modern facilities. In addition to bathrooms, there is air conditioning, a telephone, a TV, Wi-Fi (internet connection) and a minibar with snacks and drinks.
Hotels have changed dramatically over the years. There are several types of hotels to suit almost every person's tastes, needs and most of all. The two main types of hotels are luxury hotels and affordable hotels. Although both have similar basic amenities, these two types of hotels have significant differences:
As the name implies, these hotels were created for people on a low budget and therefore want to spend as little as possible. The rooms at these hotels usually have basic amenities such as a bed and washing facilities and most of them have shared toilets. Most budget hotels are older. They are clean but not as fancy as luxury hotels. Some of these budget hotels are equipped with worn-out furniture and offer nothing for free except perhaps a simple breakfast or newspaper which is sometimes included in the price they charge.
Prices for affordable hotels vary greatly depending on the location. Only in Los Angeles can budget hotels charge anywhere from $ 45 to $ 119 per day.
Luxury hotels are for people who are accustomed to a rich lifestyle. The staff at these hotels are specially trained to cover everything guests need. Their aim is to provide their guests with all the luxuries they desire during their stay. These hotels were built in such a way that their guests are absolutely free to stay. In addition to basic amenities in luxurious rooms, these hotels are usually equipped with massages offering massages, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, beauty centers offering a wide range of beauty treatments, swimming pools, bars and restaurants.
These services of course come at a much higher price than budget hotels. Other services you can get at luxury hotels are free room service, free newspapers and even better channel options on your TV. You can even use clothes and slippers while staying at these hotels.
As with budget hotels, prices for luxury hotels vary greatly depending on the location. Luxury hotels in London charge anywhere from £ 240 to £ 525 a day.
There is truth in the saying "Get what you pay for". So for people who have the money to spend on expensive hotel accommodation, staying in a luxury hotel would be better if they want to have the best service they can buy for the money. But for people who have a limited budget but need a place to stay while away from home, it is better to stay in budget hotels.
For travelers who want to make their reservations ahead of time, at the hotel of their choice, they can go online and check the websites of various hotels around the world.
