What is a hotel? It is a building planned to provide accommodation service to people and allow visitors to travel. Some hotels provide guests with additional service, for example restaurants, spa, gym, swimming pool, nurseries, bar, conference services, etc.

Hotels are usually classified into categories according to the degree of comfort, positioning and the level of services they offer.

Origin of the word ‘Hotel’

When we talk about tourism we talk about hotels because in antiquity, when people started traveling, they needed a place to stay and sometimes when great personalities traveled, they were accompanied by their entourage (It is clear that they were a lot) and it was impossible to accommodate everyone in the place, this is the reason the first accommodations with the name of hotel appear.That’s why its said that tourism and hotels go hand in hand, its because they are very much related.

Each day has a schedule of activities that must be fulfilled.·     For some people, the food may be of poor quality due to the fact that being massive quantities is losing the special touch of the meals. In the case of drinks, it can happen that they are common products and very little selected, that depends on the plan or hotel that you have paid.·  If the hotel is very far from the city you can’t do anything, just stay all the time in it.·  You must be aware of what you have bought, many times hotels can assume to have everything included but it is better that you enter to detail that you have bought. Many times in the all-inclusive is not really «all inclusive».·      Check what activities you want to go to and their schedules. In some cases the hotels schedule the most striking activities in the early hours of the morning and if you don’t reserve your space in advance you will miss them. In conclusion, the hotels are a good place to stay when you are visiting another country or you are on vacation, but you should always take into account all types of hotels, because there are a lot, and all the advantages and disadvantages that may have.
