It was high time to create the www.armhotels.am online booking system, because tourism was recognized as a priority sector of Armenia’s economy and it was really necessary to present the offered tourist services in a coordinated and integrated way, which would not only include complete information on the given country and a range of services, but would also enable the system users to directly book the respective services and make payments accordingly.
    Thanks to a group of enthusiasts specialized in tourism and IT sectors, all the aforementioned was initiated and realized. Our business partners, including hotels, museums, bed and breakfasts, car hire agencies, state bodies and NGOs, have supported and contributed to the realization of the first national booking system as far as possible.

    Hotel quality bed linen, duvets and towels are a cut above the rest and thats why hotel rooms always have that sumptuous, luxurious feel. However, how do we know what the industry standards are to make your hotel room so comfortable?

    Bed Linen:
    Bed linen in hotel rooms has a lovely, luxurious feel and this is often down to the thread count of the linen itself. The higher the count of the threads in the item, the softer and more comfortable the bedding seems to be. The thread count is the number of fibres horizontally and vertically inside a square inch of the material and the higher this is, the better the quality. Hotel bed linen has a thread count of around 300-400 threads.

    This then fits over the beds in the room, of which there are a number of different sizes. The exact measurements may differ slightly from one manufacturer to another.

    UK Bed Measurements:

    Single: Fitted Sheet – 90 x 190cm; Flat Sheet – 180 x 265cm; Duvet Cover – 137 x 203cm

    Double: Fitted Sheet – 141 x 196cm; Flat Sheet – 230 x 275cm; Duvet Cover – 198 x 203cm

    King size: Fitted Sheet – 152 x 200cm; Flat Sheet – 275 x 280cm; Duvet Cover – 244 x 234cm

    Super king size: Fitted Sheet – 183 x 200cm; Flat Sheet – 305 x 305cm; Duvet Cover – 270 x 234cm

    Towels:
    Towels are also subject to specific requirements for hotels and the width of the cotton towel or its weight is usually measured in GSM, this is grams per square inch. Low quality towels can have a GSM of 200. However, towels in hotels generally have a GSM of at least 600 and up to 800. This ensures they are more absorbent and also softer as there is more cotton to absorb the liquid.

    Bath towels in hotels usually come in four different sizes. Again, exact measurements may vary.

    Types of Towels and Their Sizes:

    Large towel – 100 x 178cm

    Medium size bath towels – 70 x 137cm

    Small size hand towels – 50 x 100cm

    Smallest size towels – 33 x 33cm

    Duvets:
    The duvet in hotel rooms is usually made from quality natural materials. The tog is how the duvets insulation is measured, and doesnt signify the thickness of the duvet as many people think. This is because different fillings may have the same tog, but differ in thickness.

    Togs generally come in six sizes 4, 7.5, 10, 10.5, 12 and 13.5.

    Typically, a 4 tog duvet is used for the warmer summer months, whereas the 10.5 tog and 13.5 tog are used for winter months.

    So, now you understand the different sizes, thicknesses and materials used by hotels you can buy all your linen, towels and duvets with confidence.

    You and your sweetie are planning to spend a romantic weekend in a hotel in Tuscany in Italy? This famous italian region offers many beautiful places suitable for a few days of relaxation and romance to enjoy with your partner, such as Siena is a very beautiful city full of atmospheric villages and farm holidays totally immersed in the green. The beauty of the region of Tuscany has often been an inspiration for italian poets and writers who have many times praised the splendor of the nature and harmony of its natural green landscapes.

    In the worldwide famous area of Chianti you can find really lovely nooks and corners that allow any couple to spend a romantic weekend in Tuscany in Italy with the excellent wines known throughout the world, as well as the typical flavors of one of the italian regions very famous for its food and wine tradition. This site is formed by green forests, mountains and hills that meet the view of the visitor as the food and wine taste and cheer the mind. The Abbey of San Galgano can definitely give some emotions when the sun begins to fall, into the sunset is a spectacle for the eyes and heart and gives it more emotion also the legendary Sword in the Stone, which some rumors say may have something to do with the legendary story of King Arthur.

    It is no coincidence that over time the italian region of Tuscany is becoming one of the most chosen by the couple to say the magic word “yes”. In the city of Lucignano you can see the Tree of Love, an ancient work of gothic jewelery that by now traditionally unites for eternity in love couples giving their fortune and happiness. And for couples looking for a weekend with thrills instead, may intrigue to make an adventurous flight aboard a hot air balloon high in the Tuscan skies and enjoy a toast upon landing. Or walk in the city of Pienza for the “ways of love” and give a romantic kiss to your beloved right in “via del Bacio”.

    Who you choose to manage your hotel can make or break your company. Deciding who to go with for your third party hotel management is a difficult decision, but probably one of the most important ones you will ever make in your life. And when people come down to visit us here in the South, they have high expectations. Were in the hospitality business, those of us who own hotels, and what is the South known for if not hospitality? Whether youre looking for a Texas hotel management company or third party management in Florida or in Alabama wherever you may be this is the one area that you do not want to sell yourself short. But it doesnt have to be the daunting task that it seems.
    One important tip as far as third party hotel management goes is to choose a company with experience. Now, this doesnt necessarily mean an old company or one thats been around. But the employees of the company whether its old or new should all have background in hospitality. People coming into the hospitality business from some fancy degree are all smoke and mirrors. Sure, they can recite to you the theory with near perfection, but without the practical background, their knowledge is next to useless.
    Another important thing to consider is that the company should treat you the way you want the management treating your guests. If youre trying to invest in the services of a third party hotel management company and they dont seem to have the time to look in your direction, do you really believe that theyll be treating your guests any better?
    Dont forget, you reap what you sow. It isnt just up to you to hire the company and wash your hands of it all. Follow through. Go through the whole process with them. If you dont, then dont be all astonished when things in your hotel arent going the way you want them to. You have to take responsibility. Hiring an outside company does not mean youre excused from work.
    Deciding who to go with for third party hotel management is important and can be a bit intimidating, but if you take extra care, you should find yourself in good hands. Just by putting in the necessary work, you wont have to worry about whether people are going to go home talking bad about the South. Youll know that your guests were treated right, and so was your hotel.

    Offering the perfect mix of seaside recreation and cultural charm, the historical city of Cienfuegos has recently welcomed a new addition to its collection of colonial hotels in the Bay of Jagua.

    The fully renovated Perla del Mar hotel joins the portfolio of E-Hotels (Hoteles Encanto) in Cubas colonial city of Cienfuegos. The E-hotels brand comprises a selection of restored properties of historical value that after renovation works have been converted into charming accommodation options for history-loving tourists in search of a more authentic place to stay, with a bit of added history to perfectly complement culturally-enriching Cuba holidays.

    The hotel was inaugurated at the end of last month with the presence of the Gran Caribe Hotel Groups president, Eduardo Acosta and the newly opened establishment became the fourth Encanto hotel in the Punta Gorda complex, which comprises another four sister properties of equal historical value and old age charm. These sister hotels include the Jagua, Casa Verde and Palacio del Valle, the latter of which was the first E-hotel to open in Cuba and marked the starting point for extending the Encanto brand and restoring more old Cuba hotels to their former glory.

    The motivation behind the opening of these peculiarly charming hotels in Cuba was not only to rescue and give use to crumbling buildings of historical importance that had been abandoned throughout the years but also to meet an increasing demand and growing interest from tourists to stay in unique accommodation that reflected Cubas captivating colonial past, much of which is still present in the architecture of old villages and sleepy towns like the residential neighbourhood of Punta Gorda, where the new Encanto Perla del Mar is located.

    The investment in the restoration of the new property, part of which overlooks the sea and the beautiful Bay of Jagua, totalled 1.4 million U.S. dollars and a further restoration project is in the pipeline for another hotel in city which will be named San Carlos. Work for the new San Carlos hotel will start in 2013 with an expected date of completion in 2012 while existing projects are also to be enhanced in the area.

    Perfectly catering to the growing interest for cultural holidays in Cuba, the new property adds value to the new accommodation in this city with fully renovated guest rooms and facilities.

    The Kauffman Performing Arts Center in Kansas City is one of the premier live performance venues in the state. It attracts world class entertainment such as live plays, ballets, operas, children’s events and orchestral concerts. When people want to see excellent live entertainment in a venue that has a rich history and a pleasant atmosphere, then they choose the Kauffman Performing Arts Center. If you want your visit to the Kauffman Center to be truly enjoyable, then you need to book a room in a Kauffman Performing Arts hotel that offers all of the services and amenities that you will need to make your time memorable.

    The first thing to look for in a good Kauffman Performing Arts hotel is location. The Kauffman Performing Arts Center is located on Broadway in downtown Kansas City. The ideal location for a good hotel is on Broadway within walking distance of the center. There are several good hotels that you will find on Broadway that are experts in catering to the people who patronize the Kauffman Center. When you are buying your tickets to an event at the Kauffman Center, be sure to ask the box office representative to recommend a good hotel in the area for you. The closer you can get to the center, the less money you will have to spend on cab fare to get yourself to the hotel.

    If you want to incorporate more of downtown Kansas City into your visit to the Kauffman Performing Arts Center, then you may want to consider a hotel that is located between the center and the Kansas City Power and Light District. This is the part of downtown Kansas City that has all of the best nightclubs and restaurants for visitors to enjoy. If you want to enjoy a good meal before the performance and then be able to unwind with your friends in a good nightclub when the performance is over, then get a hotel between the Kauffman Performing Arts Center and the Power and Light District.

    When you choose a Kauffman Performing Arts hotel, try to choose one that can help you get tickets to the show that you want to attend. Some of the local hotels have deals on tickets and rooms for people coming in from out of town, or local people that do not want to deal with traffic when the performance is over. The hotel deals you will find can save you money and may even be able to get you better seats for the performance of your choice.

    Book hotels in advance. Hotel prices tend to rise during holidays and seasonal days. You can save 30-40 % by making a booking 2-3 months in advance.

    2. Book hotels located near a public transport like a metro/station. Remember that large cities always have traffic jams. Thats why a metro/station can come in handy.

    3. The hotel must be easily accessible from the airport/railway/seaport/carpark you are going to use.

    4. Remember: the hotel must be reasonably priced, but not too cheap to avoid disappointments.

    5. Dont be afraid to book the hotel by yourself. It is cheaper than using the travel agencies where they charge you with a commission. You will also have time to read hotel reviews on the Internet before making your choice.

    6. Pay attention to the check in and check out time of the hotels. In general the hotels have a check-in time of 12.00 pm or later, while some tourists arrive at the city in the morning.

    7. Once you have chosen your hotel, make sure you find a map or a tourist guide of the region. Most of the hotels will provide you with the information you need. That way you will have time to plan your vacation on an efficient way.

    8. If you only plan to eat and sleep in the hotel choose a hotel near the centre of the city. If you are a creative person, consider to book a design hotel.

    9. When you book hotels located in the centre of the city, make sure that the window is faced inside the hotel. That would allow you to avoid traffic noise during the night, which is a problem in the centre of the city.

    10. Pay attention to small details: room service, smoking or not, check for noise isolation on the windows, availability of a swimming pool, gym and so on.

    11. When booking a room in a warm country, make sure that the room has an air-conditioner. Often hotels only mention their air conditioning in the hotel facilities.

    12. Try to find a hotel with a possibility to use a taxi transfer to the hotel. That way you dont pay too much for a local taxi. Besides, if you dont know the local language, you might even lose more time.
