2 CommentsTuesday, 10 October 2017  |  Amit

If you're the owner or manager of a hotel or B&B, getting those tripadvisor reviews to a high standard can seem like an impossible challenge. The general public can be fickle in their praise. You can get the basics spot on but still only get 3 star reviews. Too often, much of the fundamentals get overlooked in favour of lavish decoration and ostentatious particulars. Ensure your guests are as warm as possible and they'll feel content, but splash out on a private jacuzzi and those reviews will skyrocket.

If you're one of those who want to take a more economical approach to providing a premium feel at an affordable price, then you'll be on the market for some quick hotel room hacks that are guaranteed to leave a good impression on your guests.

Hotel doorbell kit

Holidays can be ruined with sleepless nights, and if its guests aren't well rested, hotels aren't proving their purpose.

But a hotel that pays attention to the little annoyances that may compromise a person's full sleep quota stands to gain a lot among the fiercely critical Tripadvisor community. Which is why we've come up with our fantastic hotel doorbell kits for this very purpose.

Upon a simple button press, your 'do not disturb' command has the ability to disable the room's doorbell. An added bonus is the 'please wait' feature, which allows the occupier to signal to hotel staff while answering the door for room service.

It's a great technology but I don't get the point actually how to hack guest room. For example you mean by putting up a code in switch like [PWR-60W-AC](https://www.procurepod.com/category/cables/cable-accessories.html) to get access of a room, its called hacking ?
