In anticipation of the upcoming trip to Auckland, New Zealand (NZ), I was looking for a house. With so many options – breakfast, resort, houses, apartments and hotels that are served (if they are to name a few) – I eventually chose a house in Oakland. Now my question came out: What is the housing I want to stop? to: What is the provider I choose?
In fairness, we can say that if I booked my trip through a travel agent, they may be able to suggest to me the right provider, but in this day and age of online booking of travel I did not need to talk to travel agents. In accordance with my flights online orders, and I decided to book accommodations online. First, I decided to find out what people are talking about accommodation in Auckland to find out if I have a good offer.
I heard all this talk about the user reviews have become increasingly popular in today's Internet environment, and now I see why. This is very similar to the conversation with the family & # 39; or her friends and asked if they could recommend somewhere to stay, but in this case you have access to a wide range of opinions. Another advantage with the & # 39 is that the feedback is posted on the website no longer filtered by ISPs, so you only read the good reviews, but instead they are much more transparent and honest assessment of the hotel.
Available are many sites with travel reviews on the Internet, but I must say that it is important to find one that is not just a common website which allows people to subscribe and post comments together, and since they are open to unverified reports, and even overly positive and sometimes fake comments from themselves prazhyvalnikav . Thus, my first step – find a trusted site for inspection of hotels in Auckland.
This is a & # 39 appeared in the form of reservation website. Comments on these sites can be placed only by people who have actually booked and stayed at this hotel Oakland. As a result, I am able to read honest reviews of these guests. Not only that, but it was easier to read reviews on the same site that I could finish the book than read one site, and then find another home in the selected Auckland hotel.
In most surveys, which I got, it was a rating system of 1 to 5, where:
1 = bad
2 = below the average
3 = value for money
4 = great value for money
5 = excellent experience
This method of ranking means that I could easily get a general idea of the value without the need to read every review for the last twelve months. From there, it took a further investigation of the hotel, which provided for the reading of each of the reviews that have attracted my attention. At this point, it was very important to remember that one or two bad reviews do not necessarily reflect the poor service from the hotel. People have bad days, and unfortunately, the hotel do it. But if in some reviews mentioned taps, poor soul, noisy rooms or poor service, I feel safe to assume that most of the guests will be right.
In the end, the only trend that has manifested itself in many bad reviews, is that sometimes people were waiting in a hotel more than provided. Such complaints as "the restaurant was closed at 11 pm," "no room service" or "I had to carry your own luggage", all evidence of the investigation, that these services were not offered Auckland hotel in the first place. There is still a belief that the hotel has round the clock counter and bar, swimming pool, gym and spa. Where today's requirements removed the irrelevant offers and services, to provide consumers with the best price.
Thus, after reading numerous reviews and feeling more informed than when I started, I was able to find a hotel in Auckland, which would correspond to my needs, not only service, but also a place of stay, costs and benefits. In the end, the reviews are one of the elements of my decision, and I had to be read in conjunction with my personal criteria to make the final decision.
