When I was a kid all I wanted to do was stay in hotels on holiday but we always stayed self-catering holiday cottages, and now I’m older I know they’re overpriced and generally a bit grubby, and a self-catering is the best option.
However hotels are fun for 1 night or a weekend especially when there’s an unlimited breakfast buffet.
since its clearer than ever that Air BNB is quite often “a bad thing” i do think i’ll try to use hotels more to avoid making a bad situation worse, but in terms of what I actually like i’d go for a whole apartment anytime if funds allow. I definitely get wiped out when I’m out doing stuff on a trip for a whole day, so being able to have a place to come and fully recharge and zone out for an hour or two before heading back out to the activities, without being in public, which offers more space than just a bedroom, is very very appealing
i dont tend to do one night stays anywhere just due to lifestyle reasons, and when I do quite happy to go cheap hostel route
Hotels are great. Always dead easy admin-wise, there’s usually breakfast if you want it, little shitty bar to have one before you go out and do your thing. Airbnb prices, particularly for private “entire place” places have went right up too (and it’s amoral) so hotels are competitive that way too. Love em
