FREE Hotel Breakfast – Important criteria for choosing hotel?
FREE Hotel Breakfast: It is important criteria for a hotel choice?
We recently traveled to Turkey and every single hotel choice offered a free breakfast. These hotel breakfasts were huge and incredibly varied with every sort of ….well everything, to choose from! Since trying the local food is so much of the travel fun, a free hotel breakfast buffet is an easy and cheap (obviously!) way to sample everything – especially for kiddos in your group that may or may not be foodies, yet.
Have you ever tried peach juice?
The turkish delight you find at the hotel breakfast is really different than the others you’ll find. It is not as chewy or as sweet.
The usual suspects…
So many wonderful tastes to choose from!
Some we don’t think of as ‘breakfast food’…
but who cares? We are on VACATION! That is honey right off of a honeycomb in the background. How cool is that?
Is lack of a FREE breakfast a deal breaker when you choose a hotel?
Like most things these days…..who offers and who doesn’t offer a free breakfast has been studied! Yes, it is true! Read the whole she-bang here.
Interestingly…..in the United States…the more stars the hotel has, the LESS likely to have free breakfast. Doesn’t that seem….backwards to you?
Which countries top the list of highest percentage of hotels offering free breakfast?
Can you guess who made the top 10?
#1 – US
#2 – Tanzania
#3 – Honduras
#4 – Peru
#5 – Sweden
#6 – Tunisia
#7 – Bolivia
#8 – Cambodia
#9 – Uruguay
#10 – Jordan
Are you surprised? I sure am! Turkey, where every single hotel I looked into offered breakfast, isn’t even on the list! Neither are some of the other places I thought would be included….clearly I need to travel and do more research!! (Like I needed an excuse for more travel!)
Here is the rest of the list:
What is your opinion? Is a FREE breakfast important to you when traveling planning?
Happy travels with full tummies!
