You don't mention what country, but I am assuming this is Europe and not USA as it would be very odd socially to hang out in an airport that long here and could even get you in trouble with TSA if someone decided to notify them. Nonetheless here are some options you can use (at least in the US): Early or Late checkout. In your example you're leaving a bit ...

Basically any hotel will keep the luggage for you - secured - until you pick it up. That might be inconvenient if the hotel is on the other side of town, though. You can check your luggage in right away. Often, airlines allow luggage check-in up to 24 hours ahead of time, but you should verify before you drag it to the airport; and again, that could be ...

You certainly have more than one option, when it comes to leaving your stuff so you can move around freely: You'd definitely want to ask to the personnel of your accomodation (hotel, hostel, apartment, etc.) if they can store your luggage until you are ready to leave. Most of the accomodations offer this kind of service and usually have a locked room, ...

Most hotels and many hostels will have a space you can leave your luggage and collect it later. Enquire about this at the front desk. Some hotels even offer this service to non-residents (although usually for a fee in that case). In the event that you can't make use of this, for example the hotel doesn't offer the serivce, you are staying in self-catering ...

We don't do specific recommendation on this site, so the best we can do is give you some ideas of places to look for cheaper accomodations. For purposes of expensive accomodation, you can consider the centre of Paris to be the 1st Arondissemont, essentially the centrepoint of this map. Anything in the area of the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel ...

The actual city centre of Lyon is the so-called Presqu'île, between the Rhône and Saône rivers, between the metro stations Bellecour and Hotel de Ville. I found a map, unfortunately not published any more by the TCL, the local public transit, that I find very informative. It shows you the main points of interests and the main metro lines. If you visit ...

The historical city center is Saint Jean. Other parts still considered the center are Bellecour, la Croix Rousse, la Part Dieu. Villeurbanne is very close too.I went to college there and it's safe. To walk to the historic town from there take 40mn or so. Although there is a city limit and a sign between the two, you cannot "see" it. Streets just continue on ...

The word you are looking for is likely Locker. This is fairly common in most hostels and might not be announced on some booking sites. When the site does not mention lockers at all, you should use or double check with an other search site or look on the site of the hostel. Or call the hostel and check whether they do offer the service. I can not remember ...

This "feature" is called a "Security locker" or "In-room safe" (the latter usually being available in proper hotels, not hostels). You can filter based on that parameter on Hostelworld, for example: Usually the lockers will look something like this: They're divided into several types, ranging in their level of security: In-room safes, a metal box ...

"Number of guests" means the number of people who will be staying in the room. A "guest" in this context is a customer of the hotel.

It's usually a number for how many people the place can accommodate. It's NOT always an indication of the number of beds. (Dictionary defintion - number 7 in this case): to accommodate for sleeping; have sleeping accommodations for For example, a 2 bedroom apartment I'm staying in during August sleeps arguably 8, but only has 4 beds - a double, a ...

You are two guests; select "2" in the drop down. Usually his number will indicate how many beds in a dorm or other shared facility are reserved for you -- the remaining beds will be allocated to other guests. In the case of tents or private rooms, it also helps the hostel know how many you need. If you select 3 people for a 2-person tent, the hostel will ...

I found myself in the same situation: my girlfriend is away from me and we try to travel often. So I've built a tool to search for flights to a common destination: http://destination.smoogly.ru/

I think it is unlikely (if not impossible) that you will be able to use the lost card to pay for your room. Most U.S. hotel/motel stays are post-paid. As such, you will customarily be asked for a payment method up to three times— at booking, at check-in, and at check-out— but you would only be charged at check-out or for a no-show. Usually, they ask me to ...

I've found reviews at Trip Advisor and, especially, Booking.com to be reliable. You can get mobile apps for both. The idea of sticking to one chain is also reasonable, but it might be difficult in some of the less populated areas. Off topic, on that route I recommend making a detour to as many National Parks of the Southwest as possible.

How 'good' do you need it to be? A room at any of the major hotel chains will be a clean, comfortable sleeping spot. Smaller mom & pop places can be nice as well, I usually check their outside appearance first... clean parking lot, hanging plants, a bit of outside furniture. Most small motels will let you see the room before paying.

Houseboats and other liveaboard vessels are not uncommon on AirBnB, and they're as varied if not more so than every other type of accommodation. For all the questions listed, ask the owner, but here's a rough outline: Most liveaboards have basic cooking facilities. If you are self catering, expect everything to be smaller and more rudimentary than on dry ...

The answer to all three of your questions is "It depends". The only way you will get an answer is by asking the owner directly. If it's beoing offered on AirBNB, then my assumption is that it is being offered much the same as any holiday rental. In that sense, the answer to 1. can be inferred from if it is advertised as "whole property" or "private room". 2 ...
