I have thought long and hard about how to provide an accurate rating system for any city or country guides I publish on the blog and I believe I have developed something that can be both informative and user-friendly, at least based upon my own experiences. As I get further into my blogging I may go back and adjust this. (I am not going to give out stars to hotel as I think that can be misleading. I will either provide a positive or negative review of the hotel based upon my experience)
Hotel Pricing guide (for 2 guests):
$ – Less than 65 US dollars per night
$$ – 66 to 85
$$$ – 86 – 110
$$$$ – 111 – 150
$$$$$ – 151 and above
Restaurant Pricing Guide:
$ – Less than 10 dollars
$$ – 11-30 dollars
$$$ – 31 and above
These prices are based upon one person ordering a typical entrée with a beer or glass of wine.
Sight Guide (Please keep in mind this guide serves as my opinion on what to see given limited time and budget):
*Not worth visiting
**Do not go out of your way, but if you come across it then you might as well visit
***Worthy of making a short side trip to visit but not on short trips
****Should plan to visit as it is worthy of your limited time and budget
*****One of the places that should be visited regardless of the time/budget allotted for your trip
I know this will not be useful to everyone (especially if I don’t start posting some reviews!) but I hope that it can at least be useful as a rough guide.
I think it will be helpful. Will it be permanently on the site?
Yes, it can be searched using the tag and will remain on the site.
