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 in a bad spot. 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.

I want to share my holiday experiences on the island of Mallorca. I have to say that I love Spain and have visited many corners. But today, I would like the tracks of his fresh impressions to convey to You, to those who haven't been here that Majorca is not boring and very informative.
My vacation lasted only 9 days.
My family and I (husband and 2 small children), we flew the day flight from UK to Majorca. In advance combed the Internet, I found ways how to get to our hotel. Since the airport is outside the city and to our hotel we needed to drive about 60 kilometers. Options include the following: 1. Bus (direct bus runs in all directions, in our case we had to make 2 changes. With children it is not very convenient and energy-consuming). 2. Taxi (it's a good option, but it's good that stumbled on information about the queues that line up for a taxi, and then saw them first hand. This is understandable, every few minutes flying in new aircraft with tourists, it is necessary for all to get to отелей0. 3. Shuttle service (after finding information on taxi and bus agreed that it is better to book the car in advance. Found a company with English speaking driver, car was waiting for us at the appointed hour, the children were placed in chairs and we with the comfort of a soft music was driving to his hotel, studying all around, and listened to the stories of the driver of Mallorca). Who should, can leave a link to the website where we booked Shuttle https://troubleshootermajorca.com/.
Then began our vacation. It turns out that Mallorca is about 200 beaches, some of them very long. For example, the Muro beach has a length of 6 kilometers. And it is very suitable for children as hdes sand and relatively small floor ...

Good afternoon everyone. Coronavirus raging, but the tourist season is still open. Now you can fly to have a rest in Croatia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Turkey, Egypt, Albania. Some countries require before departure to present a test coronavirus or after returning from a tour to self-isolation. We chose the Turkey and went last minute, well rested. It's nice that in the height of summer the hotel was not crowded with tourists and the stay was very comfortable. Didn't have to advance to take any tests and back home quarantine for 14 days. We took last minute trips here: https://imontour.lviv.ua/garyachi-putivki/%C2%ABgoryashh%D1%96-put%D1%96vki%C2%BB-turcziya. Managers answered all questions, and are every day in the course of events, therefore, have the most current information to date. ...

In this trip I visited 6 regions, and the main feature was that some actors were officially opened just a couple of days before my arrival, and some did not open at all. However, the brightness of this trip quite compares to my trips to Europe.
