When making your booking for a hotel stay, there is a clever trick that can be used to ensure you get a nice quiet room and it’s all down to the structure of the building, says a report from Cosmopolitan

According to an expert, you should always make sure you ask for a corner room if you want peace. ‘Due to the structural layout of a building, these rooms generally have the most square footage and windows, while also offering the lowest noise level,’ an insider from Hotels.com told the publication. ‘It will feel like you have a nicer room, without actually paying for one.’

Genius, right? We’ll definitely be giving it ago next time we’re in need of a hotel room.

If you’re a really light sleeper, it may be also be a good idea to make sure your room has blackout blinds (so that you’re not woken up by the sunlight at the crack of dawn) and that it isn’t close to a lift as this will inevitably mean more noise outside your door.
