After your trip somewhere, you can always write a review about the hotel you stayed at. Based on the experience of your trip, you can either write a good review and thank the hotel or, alternatively, you can write a bad review mentioning all the disadvantages of your stay. When you know how to write a review of hotels you can share your opinion with others to help them make an informed decision about where to stay during an upcoming trip.
Before writing a review, select a review website such as TripAdvisor, TravBuddy or Travelocity, where you want to leave your review. Then introduce yourself and tell what the purpose of your trip was – a business trip or vacation, whether you were alone or with a family. You may also want to write how often you travel, as it affects your credibility as a source of information.
Tell what type of room you booked for yourself. This can be very useful, because at this stage the potential reader must decide whether to continue reading your review.
Be concise in your descriptions. Do not forget about grammar and spelling. Give advice to travelers. Focus on the details that you would like to know before you go. Share information about the hotel, which is not present on the website. Tell, for example, whether there is a relatively inexpensive restaurant nearby, or you had a chance to eat only in an expensive hotel restaurant.
Give specific information about your stay at the hotel. For example, that you were very lucky with the concierge, or the maid was not lazy to create fanciful animals out of towels every day.
Include photos in your review, if the website allows it. The old proverb that it is better to see once than hear a hundred times is correct. Photographs reflecting the unsightly conditions of the hotel can be especially valuable, as this way potential customers of the hotel will see all the disadvantages and think twice before staying there. Also, such photos might be useful, as they can urge the staff to take necessary steps in eliminating the problem.
Give information about the place where you stayed. List the major attractions in the vicinity of the hotel. Honestly tell how far indeed the hotel from beach is. And how much the taxi driver ripped you off to take you from the airport to the hotel.
Share your opinion about conveniences – whether the pool was as big as it was shown on the pictures, whether the bed was comfortable, etc. Discuss the level of service at the hotel. Write about how polite the staff was and how rapid the reaction to your requests and wishes was.
Finally, focus on the big picture. A small mistake, like, it took a long time to bring a shampoo, can be omitted, if the rest was great. Describe your overall impression and omit small and insignificant details.
