    Cleaned a hotel for exterior :) for 35 quid :)

    and she wanted downstairs inside doing.. so i quoted 60 kwid she went up to her manager and came back down and she said thats fine :D

    Then she goes we would like you to clean all our hotel room windows. we have 28 rooms. so i said to her how would i go in to them whats the best time.. she goes we would give u a master key etc.

    So i quoted her 85 quid..

    thats like 3 kwid per room so i think its good price ! :)

    plus its gonna be time consuming going in and out of the rooms.

    you should have given her an hourly rate for inside H as you never know how long it's going to take
    it could take ages to get round all those rooms .

    I cleaned a Hilton hotel and the hardest part was getting in the rooms and moving things from around the windows.
    We priced per room and not hourly but don't underestimate how long a room will take.

    You can always give guide prices and say depending on how long it takes etc it could be between ex. 2.50- 4.50 a room or whatever.

    At my old firm we had 12 floors of about 40 rooms and my employer couldn't understand why it took us over a day. So he timed us and went mad because the window only took 3 minutes to clean the outside. He never took into consideration that we needed to use a drill to remove safety bolts that stopped the window from opening then use the key to unlock the window, move a sofa and connect our harness to the eye bolt. Then there was moving from one room to the next.
