Some hotels extend special discounts for reservations made through their websites, for reservations made for a group, and for reservations during off tourism season. Be sure to visit their website and look discounts. It is also ok to ask for discounts, even if you didn't find that information on their website. Also, be sure to check if room rates include 13% Value Added Tax (VAT), and 2% Tourism Tax, as they have to be paid also.
