One of the most important things to check before you plan your city break is where you want to go. City breaks don't last forever so you need to prioritise the sights. The easiest way to do this? Research hotels near the places you want to see - less travel time means you get to explore and enjoy the city more.
Another reason to plan ahead are the crowds. Come summer, cities are packed shoulder-to-shoulder and the temperatures make exploring a sticky prospect if you don't enjoy the heat. The shoulder months, however, have less extreme temperatures, cheaper deals and less people.
From parks, sights, being slightly further out from the centre of the city, or near shops or restaurants, you need to figure out what hotels place you where you want to be.
