Travel Republic are one of Europe’s largest online travel agents with a staggering two million customers annually. They have recently published their Hotel Awards for 2017. What I love about them is that they are chosen by their own customers 👌
From a pool of over 300,000 hotels and apartments, 653 received an award. Awards are only given if a property receives a minimum customer score rating of 7.5, from a minimum number of reviews. Don’t worry I’m not going to list all 653! You can spot them easily on the Travel Republic website though, which is really handy when you are searching for a hotel. The hotel with the highest customer score in each region receives one of their prestigious ‘Best In Destination’ awards. There are only twenty of these given so I decided to have a look and share my favourites.
Cordial Mogan Playa – Best in the Canaries
Superbly located in the picturesque town of Mogan, it’s not surprising the Cordial Mogan Playa is an award winner. It offers excellent facilities and service and is only minutes from the beach. One of Gran Canaria’s best kept secrets, if you haven’t visited yet – you must!
F.A.N Apartments – Best in Greece
One of Stalis’ best apartments, the three star Fan apartments are better than many four star hotels in Crete. Ideally located close to the beach, with friendly staff and well kept gardens, they are a little slice of Greek heaven.
Salles Hotel Marina Portals – Best in the Balearics
I’m often asked about a nice resort in Majorca that’s close to Palma city, well this is it. Ideal for a short break or a sun holiday, this hotel ticks all boxes. You no longer need a long airport transfer to find a delightful resort in Majorca – check this one out.
Continental Hotel Budapest – Best in Hungary
This four star superior hotel is a modern hotel, centrally located, with a host of facilities – including a wellness center with an indoor and outdoor pool. It’s an ideal choice for a weekend in Budapest – just check out that lobby!
Hotel Unic Prague – Best in Czech Republic
This Design hotel is situated in the heart of Prague, it is excellent value for a modern stylish hotel and should definitely be on your list if planning a city break.
As you can see, the best five star hotel won’t always win the prize. These awards are all based on Travel Republic’s customer’s reviews, so the best value, atmosphere and location are all factors. These are the very things that help us decide what hotels to choose when booking holidays, not necessarily the star rating.
