Hotel or Bungalow?

Auckland visitors seeking accommodation will find themselves asking the question, “hotel or bungalow?” This blog post talks about when you might want to choose either option.


Hotels - Hotel or Bungalow?

Typically, hotels have multiple rooms in one big building. They usually provide towels, bed linens, soap, toothpaste, etc. Most hotels also have other sections, such as restaurants, bars, and spas. Generally, they cost more than bungalows, but they also provide more amenities and conveniences.

Hotels tend to be suitable for people travelling in groups. This is because they can accommodate tens or even hundreds of people in different rooms. However, while bungalows can accommodate many people at once, they may not be anywhere near hotels.


Bungalows - Hotel or Bungalow?

Bungalows, like hotels, provide towels, bed linens, soap, toothpaste, etc., and they come with a kitchenette area where you can store food and some cooking equipment. There is usually a refrigerator to keep drinks cold. Actually, bungalows offer almost everything that hotels provide, save for privacy. They are more private since they aren’t part of a large building with many other rooms or people nearby. You typically don’t share a bungalow with anyone other than the person/people you’re travelling with.


If you want more privacy, then a bungalow is likely your best choice. However, hotels can accommodate more people than bungalows. And, most hotels offer more amenities than bungalows can offer, including spas and bars. Contact us for more information on accommodation, and we will gladly check into it for you.
