Geschäftsreise auf Englisch - Hotelübernachtungen ohne Albträume

Schlagwörter: Geschäftsreise auf Englisch, Englisch Geschäftsreise, Business Trip Englisch, Hotel Übernachtung Englisch, Hotelübernachtung Englisch, im Hotel Englisch, Hotel Englisch

After a morning or day of dragging laptop and luggage through train stations and airports, you\'ll often regard your hotel as a place where you can have a wellearned moment of solitude before your next meeting or leg of travel. But your home away from home can have its own pitfalls. Knowing what to say and how things work is a good way to make sure your stay is relaxing and uneventful.

Like everything else in business, your hotel stay should be planned. Not only is a reservation important, but confirming it is as well, especially when your stay is in another country.

Making a reservation
When you need to make special requests or find out if a hotel meets specific requirements, hotel reservations are best made over the phone.

What to say
Hello, I\'d like to book a smoking/non-smoking room with a single/double/ queen-size/king-size bed for two nights starting on January 23rd. Do you have anything available then?

Do you offer a free shuttle from the airport?

Do you have a fitness centre/swimming pool?

Do you offer a corporate rate?

That\'s a bit expensive. Can\'t you offer me a more attractive rate? I\'ll be staying for two nights.

What you might hear
Yes, I have a room for you during that time/on that night. Would you like to book it?

What is your name please?

Would you like to guarantee your reservation with a credit card?

I\'m sorry, but we\'re booked out on the 23rd /during that time.

Confirming a reservation
If you don\'t care about a hotel\'s amenities, and simply need a room to sleep in, booking over the Internet is often a more convenient alternative. It\'s not only faster, but you\'ll automatically receive an e-mail confirming your reservation. Just print this out and take it with you in case there is a problem.

If you booked your hotel over the phone or through a travel agent, you should contact the hotel the day before you travel to con- firm your reservation.

What to say
Hello, this is Holger Berendt from BTI. I\'d like to confirm my reservation for tomorrow.

What you might hear
Yes, Mr Berendt. We have you booked into a non-smoking room with a king-size bed for three nights beginning tomorrow evening.

Staying in a larger hotel
The important functional departments in a larger hotel are:

  • Reception: Responsible for check-in, check-out and payment.

  • Concierge: Responsible for services such as ordering taxis, recommending restaurants and ordering flowers. If your hotel does not have a concierge, reception provides these services.

  • Housekeeping: Responsible for room cleanliness, sheets, towels, climate control and your comfort.

  • Room Service: Responsible for delivering food from the hotel\'s restaurant to your room.

When you need something, you\'ll get faster service if you contact the correct department. Knowing what to say when you check in is only part of the puzzle. You have to be able to manage a wide variety of situations to keep your stay from becoming stressful. To make this communication easier, we\'ve collected the most commonly used phrases onto a quick-reference sheet (see the following page) that you can take with you. Sleep well!
