Demi Bonita, from Valencia, Spain, who’s a regular hotel guest thanks to her job, shared her tips on her TikTok account, which has almost 70,000 followers.
The travel blogger started the video from her hotel room in a blue uniform – which consisted of a blazer, waistcoat, trousers, white shirt, and grey neck tie.

The travel blogger came back an hour later and showed her followers that the door sign was still exactly where she left it, but of course the trick is only relevant if your room has already been cleaned and you’re not expecting a legitimate visit from hotel staff.
She then wrote: ‘One hour later, no one has been here!’ with a thumbs up emoji.
Demi then showed herself taking out the hotel room key from the card slot which activates the power for the room.
She then writes: ‘Your hotel card is not the only card that works!’

The cabin crew member then showed all the lights going off in her room before placing one of her own cards in the slot.
She then said: ‘You can use any other card,’ before showing a fully-lit room.
Demi then showed herself shutting the curtains and says ‘If you want your room completely dark in the morning without light coming through the curtain, use a clothing hook.’

She then took a clothing hanger, which had two clips on it, and fastened the middle of the curtains together with the clip, to ensure there is no gap.
She then said: ‘Are you in the UK and you forgot your world charger?’ before showing a UK plug with three in holes in it.
Demi informed her followers by adding: ‘There is always one in the bathroom!’
She then revealed that there was a two-pin plug below a hairdryer in the bathroom of her hotel, before plugging in her tablet to charge.
