Finding Suitable Hotel Accommodation In Greece by Nina Pavlovova
A sojourn to Greece may be a part of your next holiday plan, as it is the case with so many people who love to holiday in Europe. Fortunately for tourists planning a holiday in Greece there is no dearth of hotels, with the affordability levels ranging from moderate to luxurious.
One of the best holiday destinations in Europe, Greece witnesses tourist arrivals from across the world. The popularity of this south-eastern European country on the banks of the Mediterranean Sea as a tourist spot is explained not only by the various attractions in mainland Greece, but also by the ones on the adjacent islands.
However, rewarding capacity of a travel destination notwithstanding, it is as much important to plan a holiday. For getting the best out of your stay, you need to make other arrangements as well, such as booking accommodation, flight tickets etc. What is more, you have to make sure that the cost does not escalate the budget. A goof up could mar your trip, making it essential that you plan your trip perfectly.
Accommodation is the single most important factor while holidaying, a factor which can make the difference. Experienced travellers make it a priority to get the most suitable accommodation for themselves, arranging for it way ahead of the trip. It is not just the hospitality standards, but several other components like the distance from ‘things to do’, affordability etc. which have a say in the decision.
Fortunately, Greece hosts an impressive range of hotels and resorts, ranging from simple but comfortable budget units (meant for price sensitive tourists) to amazing and fabulous accommodation facilities (meant for tourists with a liberal budget for accommodation). And this variety of options in terms of accommodation cost is present in all the other places as well, such as Halkidiki, Mycenae, Thessaloniki, Epidaurus, Delphi and Meteora in the mainland, or in the islands like Santorini, Corfu, Mykonos, Rhodes or Crete.
You can simply visit a hotel website directory, browse through the websites of the hotels located at the spot you are planning to visit, and identify the one that best suits your budget and requirements. By the way, in Greece hotel accommodation is categorized into the following six groups by the Greek National Tourist Organization – Lux (for Luxury), A, B, C, D, and E. These rankings are made on the basis of factors, such as room sizes, amenities offered and services provided. It may be noted here that factors like cleanliness, comfort and friendliness are not counted in the classification process.
D and E class hotels are more-or-less in the same price range. They are usually pre-war hotels, lacking certain amenities, such as an en-suite private bathroom or shower.
B and C class hotels may be called the best choices for budget travellers. They are known for their cleanliness and quality service, including en-suite bathroom and food availability in the hotel premises. In fact B class hotels offer quite a good quality accommodation, while C class hotels offer modestly furnished accommodation with adequate sleeping arrangements.
A class hotels offer comfortably sized rooms, and boast of pleasantly furnished public areas. They also offer dining facilities.
Luxury hotels offer various facilities, including huge rooms and public areas boasting meticulous decoration and furnishing, and comfortable dining facilities.
Please remember that room prices are subject to changes, and you are therefore advised to check with the hotel for an updated price quote before you arrive. Two determinants of price are seasonal fluctuations and the hotel location. The months of July and August witness high room fares, given the fact that these are the peak tourism months. April, May, September and October are the months when the accommodation charges are likely to witness a fall.
