We all want to stay in a fantastic hotel, but go straight to the hotel website and usually the primary issue is the cost of booking a room. One solution is to book through HotelTonight, which can be more affordable.

Other apps also offer heavily discounted hotels, including Hotwire and Priceline, however, the main catch is that you will not know which hotel you end up staying at as part of the reason you’re getting a good offer is the fact you’re booking a hidden hotel deal.

HotelTonight has changed this approach, but the original catch started was that you could only book a hotel for the next night, hence the name. However, in certain locations, you are now able to book 100 days in advance. When you open up the app you can clearly see the hotels that are available on a deal, making selection a breeze.

If you are already at your destination, open the app and you are offered the option to select as many hotels available nearby in your current location. You can also search by city, attractions, or nearby hotels on a map. The hotels are also listed by rating, reviews and photos from fellow bookers. There is also an in-app concierge to help you with any queries or give you assistance on a trip.

If you have a hotel favourite, HotelTonight also makes it possible to monitor when room deals are available. HotelTonight operates on the fact that high-end hotels have a number of rooms available and willing to sell them at a much cheaper rate in order to fill their hotel.
