  5. 5
    When on the "near me" page, tap the green "hotels" button at the bottom of the screen.
    Above that button are three examples of hotels that are near our current location. We can tap on one of these options if we would like to. To see the complete list of hotels near our current location, tap the "hotels" button.

  6. 6
    We will see a list of all hotels near our current location.
    They will be sorted by the distance from our location. The closest hotel will be at the top of the list. For example, the first hotel is only 0.19 miles away from us. Each listing will also have the price range on the right side of the listing. To change the currency used in the TripAdvisor application, please refer to the tutorial on VisiHow on this topic.

  7. 7
    Scroll up or down through the list to browse through available hotels.
    There can be many different hotels listed. TripAdvisor has a rating system, which is displayed on each listing, assuming there are enough ratings for each hotel. Ratings are indicated by the number of green circles on the listing. The more green circles there are, the better the rating. For example, the first hotel in the list has four green circles out of a possible five, which is quite a good rating.

    Tap the search icon at the bottom of the screen, in the middle, to search for a hotel.
    The search icon appears as a magnifying glass in a circle. We can use this function to search for a specific hotel using the hotel's name. We may want to do this if we have been given a recommendation on a hotel. This function allows us to find a specific hotel quickly.

  9. 9
    Tap the map icon at the bottom of the screen, left of the middle, to use the map view to find a hotel.
    For example, if we know we will want to stay in a specific part of a city, we can use the map to find a hotel in that specific part of the city. The map icon is a circle with a map inside.

    When using the map view, the map will open, by default, to our current location.
    We need to have location services turned on for the TripAdvisor application to be able to use this function. In the map view, there will be lots of blue pins, and one green pin, displayed. The green pin is the hotel that is highlighted, and its details are displayed in the bar at the bottom of the screen. To zoom in on the map, press two fingers on the screen and spread them away from each other. To move the map, use one finger to drag it around the screen. The detail of the map will vary based on location. In large cities, maps will be more detailed, while in smaller towns there may be very little detail.
