Subject: Booking 2 nights next week

Dear Ascot Hotel,

I would like to reserve an accessible single room for two nights with breakfast on the 22 and 23 of April. Could I have a quiet room with a view if possible, please?

I will arrive at about 10 p.m. and I have an early meeting the next morning, so please could you leave an iron and ironing board in the room?

I have a promotional code (MH2219). Please can you confirm that it is £80 per night with breakfast included?

Please could you confirm the booking? Let me know if you need any further information.

Many thanks.

With kind regards,

David Mathews

Tips

  1. When writing an email to a hotel, you can start with Hello or Dear (hotel name).
  2. Say clearly the dates you want, the room type and whether you want breakfast or not.
  3. Don't forget to mention any additional information or special requests.
  4. Ask them to confirm your booking. Give them your phone number if you prefer to be contacted that way.

I will ask about air conditioning in the summer season and a geyser if there is a cold. Also, iron is very useful because when need to change clothes it needs to be pressed with iron.  Some hotels have a package of breakfast but they charge more for that. So, I will ask for a hotel according to my budget and the tour type for which I want to go.

it depends on the purpose of the trip. if i go on business i like something comfortable and quite to rest. but if i go on holidays i like a room with beautiful view, comfortable, breakfast, swimming pool,... and the most important thing is a room with reasonable price.

That depends on the reason for I would book the hotel room, If I book it to rest or I’m on vacations I
probably ask for every service the hotel could give for a resonable price, that could include breakfast
, room-service, en-swite bathroom, views to the beach or to a forest, ect, but If I’m booking the
room for work nearby the hotel, probably I would not spend much time in the hotel so I 
probably book a basic room just to rest at night while I’m staying in the city or town.

Thanks for the lesson.

Great site!

Hence, could you please release booking confirmation mentioned below names : 1) Dave and 2) Kris for visa purpose at immigration check point?
Could you please confirm about booking? If there is anything you would like to know, please contact below number.

Many Thanks,

Well, for me to book a room in a hotel demands lots of requests. Everyone should think that I'm really strict but I think it better for me, for anyone. Let's imagine, if you book a room but it has a hide camera, you'll be very frightened so the first thing I request that the room is absolutely safe. Also I need a window for sight-seeing. We travel to enjoy the scene, not only lie down on the bed then just look at your mobile phone,... There're various things I want to ask the receptionist for booking hotel. After all, I would like to reserve a room with at least the safety and nice view!

Firstly, you need provide information about type of room and amount of person.
Secondly, give a precise information about dates when you arrive, and duration of staying.
Thirdly, provide information about breakfast.
