Never before in the history of the world have businessmen traveled so much as they do today. It is not surprising because we are living in the world of growing international trade and expanding economic and technical cooperation.
Fascinating though it is for tourists, traveling has, however, become the most tiring of all the occupations for many businessmen and experts. Choosing a comfortable hotel to stay at is therefore a matter of importance.
There are plenty of good hotels, motels and guest-houses in the world conveniently located for major business centers.
