Lift blankets and pillows to look below, check under the bed, open the safety box, check the toilet, bathroom, hanging cabinets to make sure you do not forget anything. It is not easy to find something when you have checked out, on the way to the airport.
2. Do not forget the charger
While you are checking the room, there is a place usually being forgotten is the socket located under the table, on the bar. The charger for the camera, the computer, the phone will be valuable when your device runs out of battery and there is no store selling charger.

You will absolutely not be considered as cheap, stingy or rustic people when taking free items in the hotel room such as pencils, soap, lotion, shampoo, plastic bags. Of course items such as towels, bed linens, irons, hair dryers will not be named in this list.
Keep them as a gift or put it into personal luggage to use for the next trip in case the hotel does not have adequate facilities.
