Airbnb Bathroom Essentials

Hosting an Airbnb requires great attention to detail; covering the basics makes the difference for your guests. Your bathroom should be the place for comfort and relaxation. To make your guests feel welcome, here are Airbnb bathroom essentials!

Airbnb Bathroom Essentials

1. Toiletries

It’s hard to exclude toiletries when listing Airbnb bathroom essentials. Granted certain guests may have their own toiletries, it’s always best to have some basic toiletries ready like shampoo, body wash, soap, conditioner etc. A general rule of thumb is to provide both scented and unscented soaps, in case your guests have allergies.

2. Towel Rack and Bathroom Hooks

It goes without saying but towel racks are quite high on the Airbnb bathroom essentials list. They’re helpful for guests who want to hang up their towels. Similarly, bathroom hooks also provide convenience for guests who want to hang their clean clothes up. You don’t want frustrated guests hanging their clothes on the door handles!

3. Towels

When providing towels, always consider the guest first. If it’s a family, it’s best recommended you provide a hand towel, bath towel, washcloth etc. for each guest. If your Airbnb is near a beach or pool, offer beach towels too. Convenience goes a long way in hosting.

We do advise you to remind your guests where to put used towels so they can be immediately washed by your cleaners instead of being stored in rooms for days. If you do need a hand with laundering towels, book with Laundryheap!

A reminder, we also rent towels to Airbnbs so if you’re short on towels, just get in touch with Laundryheap Linen!

4. Toilet Paper

The toilet paper is a basic need in all places. To save your guests from stress and frustration, always order in bulk and never leave your guests short! Generally, it’s best to offer one toilet paper roll for a guest who is staying for only 2 nights in your Airbnb.

5. Bath Mats

Bath mats add vibrance and elegance to your bathroom. They also provide safety for your guests; preventing them from slipping because the floors are kept dry.

6. Thrash Bin

Airbnb bathroom essentials are all about convenience and to add to the list, make sure your bathroom has a rubbish bin so your guests can throw used toiletries or any unwanted items in the bin.

7. Bathroom Mirrors

Some of your guests will need to shave or put make-up on. Other guests may need to get ready for meetings and want to see how well-dressed they are in their suits. Always offer the basic convenience of a good bathroom mirror with bright bathroom lighting.

8. Hot Water

Nothing beats the feeling of a nice hot shower; it is relaxing and makes guests feel like they are in paradise. Showering is essential, so ensure maintenance is always checked so that your guests don’t complain about cold showers!

Your guests deserve the best stay, and they also deserve a good laundry service to take care of their clothes!

Happy Hosting!

Tips For Ordering Toiletries For Your Hotel

Toiletries can be quite a struggle for travellers as they don’t want to overpack. On the other hand, toiletries for your hotel can be the difference between good and excellent service. Guests want to be treated like royalty so it’s only right for hotels to go above and beyond to make sure toiletries are always available.

Toiletries

Here are our tips for ordering toiletries for your hotel

Ordering The Right Amount

Hotel guests are looking for a relaxing time and the bathroom plays a huge part in the overall service. Always ensure you have ordered the right amount of toiletries to save you a lot of frustration. You want to avoid a situation where unhappy guests are confronting you because you have run out of toiletries.

Stay prepared and order enough toiletries with Laundryheap Linen!

Consider Your Budget

Running a hotel is already expensive but if you are keeping tabs on your budget, it will help you to stay on track whenever you order toiletries. Considering your budget is sustainable in the long term.

If you’re looking for toiletries that are budget-friendly, Laundryheap Linen’s toiletries are only £2.49 + VAT per item!

Consider The Size Of Toiletries

Hotels very rarely refill their handwash or shampoos so order small-sized toiletries for your hotel guests. When ordering shampoo or shower gel, it’s recommended you order 30ml amount because it may benefit your hotel guests if they wish to take them home.

Choose Laundryheap Linen

When ordering toiletries for your hotel, you need to consider a provider that offers quality products and convenient service. The good news is there is a provider that fits the bill, and it is Laundryheap Linen!

With a set of shampoo, shower gel, body lotion, condition, body soap and hand soap, our toiletries will look great in your hotel bathroom and will no doubt impress your guests!

Essentials in a Hotel Room

Hotels are fabulous places to stay; they’re a great way for guests to start their holiday week! With an abundance of excitement, it’s only fair you have all the essentials in a hotel room for your guests.

We’ve put together a list of essentials in a hotel room so your hotel guests can enjoy their stay with comfort and excitement.

Comfortable Beds, Bed Linens and Bed Pillows

Staying in a hotel should be cosy. After all, it should be a place where guests can get a goodnight’s sleep. Beds, bed linens and bed pillows are essentials in a hotel room for this reason. Make sure beds are routinely cleaned and looked after to maintain consistency.

Toiletries

Enjoying a relaxing bath is one of the best feelings. Guests often forget to bring their own personal toiletries but offering toiletries go a long way in excellent hotel room service. Whether it’s shampoos or soap, your guests’ spirits should be lifted when they are in the bath or shower.

Towels

Towels are essential in a hotel room; they add class to your hotel bathroom and leave a lasting impression on guests. Offering body or face towels is good but it’s also vital you take care of your towels by laundering them consistently.

WIFI Connection

Hotels attract businessmen. Keep your hotel guests topped up with a stable WIFI connection. It’s a great relief for businessmen to know that they can rely on a goodnight’s stay and a stable WIFI connection.

Similarly, tourists will be delighted with a WIFI in case they want to post on their social media (if you’re lucky, they’ll even give your hotel a shoutout if the service is excellent!).

You can even use your WIFI to book a service with Laundryheap in case you need your laundry done immediately.

Decent Closet Space and Hangers

Whilst you want your guests to be satisfied with their room, you also want to offer them a good closet that allows them to sort out their clothes.

For instance, families would prefer to unpack their clothes and hang them up in a closet. On the other hand, businessmen may like to hang their outfits or suits up in closets.

Guests may need to separate the dirty clothes (that need laundering) so offering a closet to put the clean clothes in is convenient!

A TV

If we’re talking about essentials in a hotel room, the list wouldn’t be complete without a TV! Sometimes simplicity is key and there is nothing better than sitting down drinking coffee while watching the TV! It adds entertainment to your guest’s hotel experience!

If you’re a hotel owner, it’s important to remember the essentials in a hotel room and treat your guests like they are royalty.

Visiting Kuwait on a Budget – The Travel Hacks

Famous for its hot weather and wonderful Skyline, Kuwait can be an expensive country to visit. However, you can visit Kuwait on a budget without breaking the bank!

With amazing infrastructure, it’s no surprise that Kuwait’s tourist reputation is growing so here are the best travel hacks when visiting Kuwait!

  • Best Time To Visit
  • Booking Hotel on a Budget
  • Eat Local
  • Travel Hack – Use a Laundry Service
  • Keep a Record of the Essentials

Best Time To Visit

Travelling creates excitement and memories but unfortunately, it can also be a source of stress! You can approach your big trip to Kuwait on a budget by knowing the best time to visit. Our number one travel hack for you is to avoid travelling in November, June, or January as the prices for flights and hotels will skyrocket. According to travel data, December and Spring are the least expensive periods to visit Kuwait.

Visiting at the right date and time

Booking Hotel on a Budget

It can be a stumbling block to your budget to book a hotel as they’re often expensive and you start to think to yourself “how will I enjoy the rest of my trip now?” but it doesn’t have to be this way for your Kuwait trip.

When visiting Kuwait on a budget, our travel hack for you is to book the Royal Inn Hotel which is in Al Salmiya. It ticks all the boxes for your big trip; it’s budget-friendly, and it’s located close to the city and to the local beach. Just be sure to take care of your shoes, especially with all the sand around!

Booking Hotel on a budget

Eat Local

Everybody loves food (we love it as much as we love doing laundry!). To make your travelling experience even better, eat food on a budget. Avoid the expensive restaurants, buy local. Kuwait has a lot of local street food and restaurants that cater to the locals.

To save you money, we recommend the area of Kuwait City souk; home to a variety of cuisines and prices that are budget-friendly!

If you spill food or drink on your clothes, don’t worry, we’ll clean it up for you!

Travel Hack – Use a Laundry Service

There is no better feeling than wearing your favourite outfits on a holiday, but it can be a buzzkill when you go back to your hotel only to find out you have tons of laundry that need to be done. The launderettes in Kuwait can be expensive and this can be stressful.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. Laundryheap is your friend. Just book your laundry service with us (we do have a service in Kuwait) and we’ll subtract one less chore from your duties!

All you need to do is book online or through the app and your dirty laundry will be collected and returned to you 24 hours later! It’s budget-friendly, efficient and convenient!

Keep a Record of the Essentials

The organisation is the key to everything and to stay on budget, keep a record of the essentials; the expenses, the hotel price, the food, drinks, the souvenirs and etc. We all get excited when travelling and it’s easy to go on a shopping spree (we don’t blame you!) but a record would benefit your budget significantly.

We even recommend recording your luggage weights. Luggage fees are common but as a travel hack and to keep you on budget, pack light and pack right and you will not be overcharged at the airport!

Make sure you neatly separate the clean clothes from the dirty clothes!

Record of Trip to stay on a budget

Visiting Kuwait on a budget is important, but enjoying your trip is more important. Follow our travel hacks but also have fun, take plenty of pictures and enjoy the food!

The Kuwaiti LaundryHeap website is available, and you can view it here.

Quarantine entertainment

Photo by Daria Shevtsova from Pexels

At first glance, hotel quarantine may not sound like a lot of fun. Confined to a small space for 10 days, with only a TV, WIFI, and whatever you travelled with, for entertainment. That being said, there are some fun, useful, and productive ways to stay entertained during your hotel quarantine. 

  • Exercise
  • Yoga
  • Learn something new
  • Read
  • Listen to podcasts
  • Catch up with family and friends
  • Do something creative 
  • Catch up on life admin
  • Do some cleaning 
  • Allow yourself to relax

Exercise 

Despite not having a lot of space in your hotel room, it is still essential to do at least a little bit of exercise. You will be moving very little during your 10-day quarantine, so it’s important to do a small amount of activity every day to stimulate your body and mind. This can be in the form of walking from one side of your hotel room to the other 10 times every hour, completing an exercise video, or even doing a home workout. Doing a small amount of exercise will keep your body energised and release endorphins to help keep you feeling optimistic during this tough time.

Yoga 

As well as doing physical exercise, try doing yoga. Yoga is a great way to stretch your body, improve your flexibility, and focus your mind. In addition to this, yoga doesn’t require much space, so it’s easy to achieve in a small hotel room.

Learn something new 

Quarantining for 10 days, completely away from distractions, provides the perfect opportunity to learn something new. You could learn a new language, take an online course, or try something creative, such as art. As long as you can find the supplies, and your new activity doesn’t require too much space, the sky is your limit. Push yourself, and you will be surprised at what you can achieve.

Read

In our normal lives, we are surrounded by so many distractions, that it’s hard to find a quiet moment to relax and escape in a book. Your hotel quarantine experience provides the ample opportunity to do just that. Turn off your phone, get comfortable, and lose yourself in an alternate universe where you aren’t quarantining in a hotel for 10 days.

Listen to podcasts

Whatever your interests are, there is a podcast for you. From true crime to comedy, DIY to baking, you will definitely be able to find an interesting podcast on your chosen subject. Simply choose a podcast, get comfortable, and listen. Be warned though- they are extremely addictive, and before you know it you will have spent a whole day intensely listening to the same one.

Catch up with family and friends 

The COVID 19 pandemic has made all of us focus on cherishing our loved one. That being said, in between working, looking after families, and finding time to focus on ourselves, sometimes it’s hard to reach out to the ones we love. Take your time in quarantine to ring, video call, or voice note your loved ones. Check in with them and make sure that they are okay. It can get lonely in quarantine, especially if you are on your own, so it will feel good to see or hear a loved one, even if it is through a phone.

Do something creative 

Sometimes we become so invested with the everyday, that we don’t find the space to be creative. Take your quarantine as an opportunity to explore your creative side. Express your emotions through art, try creative writing, or even film your quarantine experience. Try and find a creative outlet to express your emotions.

Catch up on life admin 

We all have life admin that we either never have the time to tackle, or are constantly finding excuses to avoid doing. Now is your time to tackle that life admin. Set an hour aside everyday for the 10 days that you are in quarantine and get your life admin out of the way. You may not even need 10 days to complete it.

Do some cleaning 

Despite the fact that you will be staying in a hotel room, it is your responsibility to keep your room clean for the 10 days that you are staying. Pass some time by making the bed and making sure that your room and bathroom is clean and tidy. A tidy room may help tidy your mind and lead to an increase in productivity.

Allow yourself time to relax 

Life is hectic, and this pandemic has been, and still is, incredibly hard to navigate. Whilst you are quarantining, allow yourself time to fully relax. Take some time to practice mindfulness. Spend a day watching mindless TV. Take a nap. Whatever it is that you do to relax, allow yourself time to do it. This will help you re-set your mind, and prepare you for life post hotel quarantine. 

If you are concerned about running out of clean clothing whilst you are in quarantine, worry no more. We’re here to help. At Laundryheap, we will pick up your clothing from your hotel, dry clean your garments, and re-deliver them to you, within 24 hours. 

To book your Laundryheap service, simply head to the Laundryheap website, or download the free Laundryheap app from the App Store or Google Play Store.
