If you are planning a quick getaway over the weekend or a long escape then these hotel hacks will change your life!
Whether it’s saving money or making the most of your room, we’ve got you covered with hacks that will totally blow your mind. You can thank us later…
1.) No nightstand? No problem.
Isn’t it the worst when you don’t have a nightstand to put your phone etc. on? When you are staying in a hotel you can’t guarantee you’ll have the luxury of a nightstand. However, try improvising by using the folded sheets as a pocket for your phone, glasses, anything!
2.) Borrow items you haven’t packed!
If you are anything like us, you are likely to forget something when you go on holiday. There’s always that dreaded moment when you arrive at the hotel, unpack and notice you’ve forgotten your toothbrush or slippers (vitally important). However, before you go to the nearest shop, try asking at the hotel reception if they have anything you can borrow or use, this will save you both time and money!
3.) Keep your room smelling fresh
4.) Don’t forget your room key
It is easy to accidentally forget your room key when staying at a hotel. Stop this from happening again by attaching your room key to your phone charger, this way you’ll remember both your phone and key! Winning!
5.) Avoid leaky toiletries
6.) Makeshift speaker
7.) Don’t suffer the mini bar charges
If you fancy a snack or drink from the mini bar, go ahead! Avoid the crazy expensive charges by restocking it yourself with the exact same items from the convenience store. This way you will save loads of money, just as long as it doesn’t have fancy pressure plates!
8.) Make your own toothbrush holder
9.) Block out noise and light
Lots of hotels have quite a gap under the door which allows loads of noise and light to come through. If this is driving you crazy, there is a super quick fix, just place a towel across the gap in the door and you’ll be deeply asleep in no time!
10.) No mini fridge? You can still keep things cool!
11.) Or if you want a portable option…
12.) How to keep the power on
A lot of hotels these days require your room key card to keep the power on, all about saving energy and all that. However, sometimes you will want to charge your devices while you’re out, so, to keep the power on you can put any old card in there!
13.) Changing the breakfast game
We all know those little butter blocks that hotels provide are always rock solid and whenever you try to spread them on your toast you end up with chunks of butter. So, next time you are doing your toast at a hotel, place the butter on the toaster to warm them up. Spreadable butter in no time!
14.) Stop constantly refilling at the juice machine
The tiny cups they give you at breakfast simply aren’t big enough for the copious amounts of juice we drink. Solve this problem by using a big coffee cup so you don’t have to keep returning to the juice machine. Hide your addiction to juice whilst getting your fix!
15.) Don’t worry about wall chargers!
If you have forgotten your wall charger or don’t have the right one for the country you are in, do not fear! Most TVs have USB points at the back, simply plug your phone USB charger in there to make sure you stay connected.
