Culture Corner 1. Which of the following accommodations would a student choose? 2. Which is a good choice for people who drive cars? Luxury 5-Star Hotels These are grand buildings usually located in places with beautiful scenery and convenient transport. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, with all types of services you can imagine. Of course, spending a night in such hotels can be very costly, but they are still a favourite with businesspeople. A motel is a good choice for people who travel by car. A student would choose a youth hostel during his trip.
Culture Corner Youth Hostels Youth Hostels are usually neither big nor beautiful, but can be cosy and neat. You may have to share a room with three or more people. But it’s cheap, so such rooms are students’ first choice.
Culture Corner Motels Motels mainly serve guests who are on long car journeys. Therefore, they are nearly always located at the side of main highways. Motels are generally functional rather than attractive, so motel rooms are usually cheaper than hotel rooms.
