Hotel secrets: Travellers reveal simple move to make this activity better in your room – Express

Hotel stays are the choice of many people on their holidays. There are hotels to meet nearly every budget and need out there. However, even tip-top hotel rooms can have something wrong with them.

One common complaint among globetrotters is a very basic one - but can make all the difference.

Travellers hoping for a good nights sleep can be frustrated by hotel room curtains.

Sometimes they dont always meet in the middle which means they let in light.

This shaft of sunlight can disrupt slumber for some who like to sleep in darkness.

However, travellers have taken to social media to share their advice for this issue.

One top tip to beat the problem is to be crafty with a coat hanger.

Holidaymakers recommend sourcing a coat hanger with clips.

Instead of using this to hand up a pair of trousers, it can be used as DIY solution.


The hack is simply to clip the two sides of the curtains together using the clips.

This way the curtains will be pulled totally shut and wont let any light in.

One Twitter user posted a photo of the cunning move.

Rick Klau captioned the image of the coat hanger and curtain in his hotel.

He wrote: I dont remember who posted this on twitter a few years ago, but whoever you are: you have improved every night Ive spent in a hotel since.

There are also moves you definitely shouldnt do in a hotel room.

A travel expert has revealed that no matter where youre staying its key to avoid doing one thing in particular with your luggage.

New York Times travel writer Geoffrey Morrison warned against putting luggage on the bed in the US publication.

This is because there is the unpleasant risk of bed bugs.

Plopping your baggage on the hotel room bed could enable the critters to clamber aboard and hitch a free ride home with you.

According to the NHS: Bedbugs are small insects that often live on furniture or bedding. Their bites can be itchy, but do not usually cause other health problems.

The health body added: Bedbugs can hide in many places, including on bed frames, mattresses, clothing, furniture, behind pictures and under loose wallpaper.
