What to look for in a good hotel
The adjective good mean several things to several people but in general standards a good can mean a hotel where you will be comfortable and secure, where the rooms are clean. This may be a mix between a standard basic hotel and a luxurious hotel. However, there are other things to be looked into apart from the facilities and amenities on offer.

When looking for a good hotel you must first start looking for the right location in the place you want. Ensure that it is not located in a bad neighborhood or where there is vice and crime.

If you are visiting out of town and you do not have a mode of transport of your own in the place you plan to visit, check whether the hotels you select have taxis easily available or there is easy access to public transport to the place you will need to go.

After checking out on the location and transport you will then need to look for a hotel that meets with your requirements. What would be your requirement. A good hotel should have clean rooms with en suite bathrooms. You will certainly not be looking to go down the hallway for the use of a bathroom. Find out the size of the room. Depending on how long you plan to stay the room requirement may vary. There are standard size rooms but if your stay is going to be long you may want a room which is large and you will not feel closter phobic. A good hotel will have televisions in every room and the bath rooms will be spacious with complimentary toiletries provided for the guest. A phone is a must and if you are overseas check whether international telephonic facilities are available.

When you are traveling and living out of a suit case, laundry facilities are a necessity and a good hotel should have a in-house laundry.

If you are on a business visit you may be working in the hotel after hours and you may require fax and printing facilities. A business centre which provides such facilities are available in good hotels. Also, internet facilities should be available in every room.

A good hotel will have 24 hour room service available so that, if you wish, you can choose to eat according to your own time schedule rather than stick by the hotel schedule. But apart from that the hotel should also have a 24 hour coffee shop and at least one other main restaurant. Better hotels will have several restaurants.

Even more easier when selecting a hotel is to check the classification of a hotel. A three star hotel will come into the category which is between a basic and luxury hotel, though at times three star hotels in your home country may be different and may be worse or even be better in another country due to the lack of standardization of classification internationally. That may be the case even in the home country. Therefore the search will be narrowed when you check the particular category of hotel you want though you might find value for money in some of the unclassified hotels. Sometimes a hotel may be better but due to the non-availability of some small amenity or facility which may even be a hair-dryer, they have not been able to get the classification they want.

However classification will be a good guide to start your search.
