Knock on the door before entering the hotel room
Recently, a user on the social network Tiktok shared a video about his experience in many hotels and resorts in many countries around the world.
What is curious is that the staff at most of the places he passed had a habit when leading guests to check in: Knocking on the door 3 times even though there was no one in the room.
Below the comment section of the video, many people are curious to know what the real purpose of this is. There are also many other opinions that it has spiritual meaning, feng shui, an unwritten law that every hotel should do.
"I used to work as a hotel receptionist before and was trained to do the same, like a necessary professional skill."
“Probably out of habit or courtesy.”
"According to my experience as a travel salesman and guide, knocking on the door like that is to notify a certain presence in the room that someone is about to come in to let them out."
In fact, knocking on the door and declaring yourself before entering a room applies not only to the check-in staff, but also to all other departments in the hotel.
From serving, cleaning or management, all must follow this professional principle to show courtesy and respect to customers.
Even if there is no one in the room, this action is also to avoid the case of mistaken room number, wrong room card number that leads guests into an occupied room. If there are people in the room, the people inside will have time to prepare in advance for someone else to enter the room.
They are required to knock at least 2-3 times, if there is no response from the inside, they can open the door to the room.
Most employees of hotels and resorts from budget to luxury in the world are trained to comply with this mandatory professional principle.
Is this action related to feng shui?
In addition, there are also some opinions that this action is to ensure the elements of spirituality and feng shui.
However, the feng shui notes are only relative and for reference, and do not have a clear scientific basis. You can still perform the act of knocking before entering your room for peace of mind during your stay at the hotel.
