Nowаdays people have an excellent chance to travel all over the world. It is not surprising, because we are living in a world of growing international trade and technical cooperation.

When traveling, it is convenient to stay in a hotel. The best way is to reserve a room in advance by phone or by Internet. Those who travel much know that sometimes tourists experience certain difficulties with booking a room at a suitable hotel. At the height of the season a sign «No vacancies» can be often seen at the desk-clerk.

But if you are lucky with booking a room you will enjoy your rest. In this case you must first go through some formalities. The receptionist will hand you an arrival card which all guests are required to fill in.

After having filled in the arrival card you must pay for accommodation. The receptionist will answer all your questions and give you any information you need. The price depends on the duration of your staying at the hotel and the number of hotel “stars”. The hotel may have from two to five «stars». When all the formalities are over the receptionist hands you the key and you may go upstairs to occupy the room. At the hotel you will find rooms with or without bath, air conditioner, single rooms, double rooms, complete suites consisting of two or more rooms, de luxe or top class rooms. In the rooms you can find some modern conveniences such as TV, DVD, telephone, and a safe.

Once you decide to stay in the hotel you are referred to as a «guest». You will find notices everywhere reminding guests to leave their keys at the desk when going out. All the keys are hung on a special key rack.

In the lobby you will usually find a newspaper stall and stalls where cigarettes and souvenirs are sold. Guests are given Internet, telephone services as well: you may book or reserve railway and airline tickets from your room telephone.

Most of hotels have bars and restaurants. If you want to have a bite or a dinner you can go there or order it in your room.

All hotels run a special laundry service for their guests. The maid does your room every morning so you needn't even make your bed.

Guests are required to notify the clerk in advance about leaving so that he could have the bill ready for them in time.

When I travel, I always put up at a hotel. I’m in the habit of booking rooms beforehand. Booking rooms beforehand is very convenient as rooms are expensive in England and cheap hotels are usually full up.

You’ll find London hotels just the same as hotels in all large cities. As a rule you go into a large entrance-hall where visitors are constantly coming and going.

On arriving at a hotel you must first ask for the reception clerk and he or she will tell you, which is your room, which floor it is on, and will give you the key. Usually you don’t get your keys without signing in at the hotel.

If stating at a hotel, you have to sign in at the desk, stating your name and address.

You give your luggage to the porter, who takes it up in the lift to your room.

After washing and changing in your room you can walk about the town. On returning before going to bed you can put your shoes outside the bedroom and the boot-boy will clean them.
