Classification of hotels (star category)

Звездность отеля

To characterize the quality and service level of hotels according to the international classification (more precisely, it is the European classification system) the accommodation is assigned a level from 1 to 5 stars. The higher the number (number of stars), the higher the quality. Anything over five stars - it's just marketing moves of the hotels, not having a valid classification relationship. The evaluation system is quite complicated, but for ordinary people it can be described with the following options:

  • One star. As a rule it is hotels located on the outskirts of cities or resorts at a disadvantage. In most cases these are very small hotels with number of rooms to 10, sometimes family hotel. The food here is not offered (the kitchen is fully absent), the working time of the staff during the day (at night no one was found in a night-time curfew). In the room besides the bed and bedside tables nothing. Shower in the room also can not be (shared on the floor or the entire hotel). To stay in these hotels for the rest, it is rather a place along the route in order to sleep.
  • Two stars. A room in such hotels already implies the existence of a soul, TV and air-conditioning (sometimes extra). Such hotels can offer a Breakfast. Restrictions on entrance at night not. Typically, these hotels are only used for the night along the route.
  • Three stars. This is the most common type hotels. In the rooms of these hotels have all the amenities for a long stay, but no frills. The room is sure to be a shower or bathroom, TV, telephone, can be a fridge or mini-bar. You receive the variety in the types of rooms in size and capacity, the level of the situation. On-site three-star hotels may be your pool.
  • Four stars. These hotels differ from the star obligatory availability of Parking, great location (on the beach or in the city center), high level of service. Many additional services the hotel offers free buses to the shopping malls and beaches, transfers to and from airport and gyms, swimming pools, aquaparks, own beach loungers on the public beach, etc.
  • Five stars. Hotels in this category offer on their site all reviews. Theoretically, guests need not even step outside the hotel if they so wish, and all the entertainment they find in a hotel. Shops, night clubs, massage parlors, bars, restaurants etc are all necessary for a stay of infrastructure: Laundry, dry cleaning, meeting rooms, and business centers. The rooms are of a great variety, from simple single room with a good furnished to luxury VIP-rooms.

Classification of hotels in Greece is in Latin letters. In some countries there is no official system of classification of hotels and the star rating assigned on the basis of the views of the guests, competitors, travel agencies or determined subjectively by the owners of the hotel.

Good day, dear readers and viewers.
My name is Daniel and I want to share with you the adventure for US.
From childhood wanted to go to Los Angeles and when the opportunity presented itself to go there in my head the idea that this is a very petty to visit only one city. So came up with driving all the way across America from new York to San Francisco by car. The tickets were purchased to fly after 3 months, but one snag - I don't know how to drive, never even tried it and also no rights of course. Enrolled in a driving school and also a friend knocked it (he has the same situation), after two months we got the rights, and the case remained for small - to drive the whole continent without any serious driving experience at all, and especially in another country.
This is a story about adventures, adventures, fulfilling dreams and the road. And that anything is possible.
WARNING: IN THE VIDEO THERE IS A MAT, 18+
I hope you will like it. Pleasant viewing!
