An expert has revealed the two types of hotel rooms you should never book on your next vacation.
The advice will mean that you will sleep much better at night and will not be disturbed by noisy people.
Martin Seeley, CEO and sleep expert at MattressNextDay, explains: “When you book your room, you should consider requesting a room on a higher level as you are less likely to be disturbed by street noise or sounds from the hotel lobby or bar.
“You should also make sure to request a room that isn’t near the elevator, as it’s also prone to noise that can keep you awake.”
So if you find yourself in a ground floor room next to the elevator, expect a noisy night.
Don’t go too high, though — one safety expert said you should never go above the fourth floor.
Lloyd Figgins, a former soldier and now a travel risk expert, told Sun Online Travel: “The biggest thing that gets overlooked is the risk of fire.
“Make sure you stay between the second and fourth floors of the hotel as fire ladders rarely go above the fourth floor.
“Everything below that is attacked by burglars.”
Being too hot can also disrupt your sleep, especially if you are in a hot country.
Martin shared some of his other top tips for getting a better night’s sleep – including using the air conditioner.
Martin added: “Too hot or too cold can disturb your sleep so try to choose a room with air conditioning so you can control the temperature.
“Setting the temperature to 15.6 to 19.4 degrees Celsius at least two hours before bedtime creates the perfect sleep environment.”
But even if you do your best, there’s still a reason you’re always tired when you’re on vacation.
Increased stress levels, dubbed recreational sickness, have been found to make the immune system less effective — which sounds about right if you tie everything together before you turn on your absence.
