You should reserve a hotel for at least two days after arrival. This way you can avoid unnecessary stressful situations like trying to find a hotel after long and tiring flight and it allows time to look around and get used to your new surroundings.

It is easy to get a place to stay for the rest of the days in your destination and you can use tips from other travelers. The biggest advantage of this is that your itinerary is not set and you can go and explore without being tied to one place. As WI-FI is a standard in most places these days, you can either reserve your next place to stay online or call the reception of the hotel of your choice. You do not need to reserve your accommodation beforehand unless it is a peak season or if you don't really mind where you're staying. In this case you might just go and have a look at your room first and then try to agree on a lower price.
