Although it's likely you have booked an attractive ace 5-star hotel there's always tips and tricks for making your stay absolutely totes amaze. However, if sneaking well-buttered bread rolls on the breakfast buffet right into a shower cap or building a grilled cheese sandwich with an iron (God I wish I had those cooking skills) is too much MacGyver to suit your needs, there are many ways to join your accommodation hack club.
Whether you’re travelling for business or leisure, there are many seriously slick hacks on the market to ensure you’ll never have to pack muddy shoes with crisp clean shirts, deplete all of your exfoliator or will lose out on your favourite TV-shows, again.
Use a trouser hanger
Use a hanger with clips to maintain the curtains together and also the lights out. Simply nail the curtains together utilizing the two clips around the trouser hanger.
Connect Netflix to the accommodation room TV
You don’t have to be a tech whiz to get down this trick (count on me). If your accommodation has a flat screen TV having an HDMI port and also your room has wifi, bingo! Now you can hook Netflix up towards the TV right from your laptop, tablet or smartphone and binge watch your favourite TV-shows. Of course residing at a place like Ovolo makes this even simpler as a result of them hooking you up through an Apple TV in every single room ;-)
Pack your favourite tea
Sadly, sometimes your favourite hotels don’t stock your favourite tea. Not every hotel might be like Ovolo and stocked while using Uber-popular T2 all things considered! Oh, the horror. Solution? Bring a plastic zipper bag with your tea bags.
Make (real) utilisation of the shower cap
Leave those bread rolls alone! There are undoubtedly more valuable ways for making use of the magic shower cap. For example, place your dirty shoes inside the plastic cap before packing them within your suitcase or wrap it across the germy TV handheld remote control.
Use the heated towel rack as being a clothes dryer
If you’re a full-time traveller somewhat hand laundry isn't feasible to avoid. Instead of spending thousands on the resort
laundry service, utilize the towel heat racks from the bathroom to dry your hand-washed clothes.
Keep the electricity on
Always request two key cards once you check in. Leave one card inside the slot from the door to guarantee the air-conditioner is on whilst you’re out and also your laptop, camera and iPhone are now being charged.
Make usage of those sugar packs
Tired of travelling together with your seven-step skincare products making your wash bag appear to be a small suitcase? Save about the number of products you pack by mixing the facial cleanse which has a packet of sugar and voila (!) you’ll provide an exfoliator.
Create your personal surround system
Drop your iPhone into (jail) glass to host your individual house party. This is how to convert the beats up, baby! Chances are if you probably won’t should do this little hack at Ovolo due to their jaw-dropping wireless Harmon Kardon speakers in every single room.
Book directly through the place
By using the resort’s own website for bookings as well as by calling your accommodation directly, you could receive “off the books” discounts or upgrades. The off-season is generally when the very best deals are available.
