Learn English about Common Phrases about hotels. Let's learn English and learn phrasal verbs with phrases about hotels. Learn English from this course👉 I will teach you phrases about hotels in English which include phrasal verbs in English for better speaking. Phrasal verbs in English grammar are very important for improving your phrasal verbs in English speaking. You will learn hotel vocabulary in English.

Remember, a phrasal verb is a phrase including a verb and at least one other word—such as a preposition, noun, or adverb—which works as a unit. Learning phrasal verbs is useful because they are very common in English, so the more you know the better it is for your listening and speaking skills.

Our first verbal phrase is BOOK A ROOM. This means to reserve a room at a hotel in advance—either by selecting the room online through an app like AGODA or by calling the hotel. If you call a hotel you might want to say, “Hello, I’d like to book a room for next Friday night.”

Once you’ve BOOKED A ROOM, you can use the next verbal phrase, HAVE A RESERVATION. When I arrive at a hotel this is almost always the first phrase I use: “I have a reservation.” This means that you booked a room online or over the phone and the hotel should be ready for your visit. If you have a reservation, the hotel probably knows your name and they may also know what hotel room to give you. Some hotels will have everything prepared for your arrival if you HAVE A RESERVATION.

When you’re thinking about the price of a hotel room the third verbal phrase can be useful: TO BE INCLUDED IN. The meaning of this phrase is best shown by giving examples. If you pay 50 dollars for a hotel room and breakfast “IS INCLUDED IN” the price, that means that you can have breakfast the next day for no additional money. You already paid for the breakfast when you paid the 50 dollars. You might need to ask what “is included in” the price you pay for something. “Is coffee included in the breakfast?” “Is wifi included in the room price?” “Is insurance included in the car rental?”

Our fourth verbal phrase is actually two phrases: CHECK IN and CHECK OUT. Check in when you’re arriving at a hotel and check out is when you’re leaving. “What time is check in at your hotel?” “Check in begins at 2:00, sir.” I’d like to check in. I have a reservation.” “Certainly sir, may I see your passport?” “What time is check out?” “We ask our visitors to check out before noon tomorrow, sir.” Note that we also use the phrase CHECK IN at the airport when we’re going to take a flight somewhere.

Our last verbal phrase is something to use when you need help from the hotel staff: HAVE A PROBLEM WITH. “I’m having a problem with the toilet.” “There’s a problem with the wi-fi in my room.” “I had a problem with the phone last night, has it been fixed yet?” “Are you having problems with anything?” “Yes, we have a problem with the hotel room. Can you send someone by?”

I hope you don’t have any problems with your hotel stay the next time you travel. You should check in to the English Danny channel all this month to complete our verbal phrase challenge. See you in the next video!
