How to find the best hotel

There are thousands of hotels available on the Internet, and the discounts and advertisements are mind-boggling. You may find a luxury hotel at an unbelievable price and then realise you will be wasting time and money to travel to the area you wanted to visit. Or it could be the other way around. It’s best to take a few minutes to think about the purpose of your trip, where exactly you want to be and your budget.

If you use the correct filters on Booking.com, you are presented with a small list of hotels that suit your requirements. You can always check the prices on other websites, but chances are they will not be cheaper. If you click on a link on our website and make a booking, you will pay the same price you would on Booking.com. We do not charge you anything, but we do get a commission from Booking.com, which helps us maintain our website. Now that that’s out of the way, here’s how you can find the best hotel for your trip.

Take a few minutes to consider the decisions you need to take while narrowing your search.

Location: Would you like to stay near a transport hub – an airport, a railway station, metro or bus terminal? Or would you rather stay in a business district, an exhibition centre or a conference venue? You may also prefer to stay in an area which has recreation, shopping and entertainment facilities, so you can make the most of your time after work.

Search Hotels by location

Facilities : Check in advance whether the hotel has the facilities you need to make your trip hassle-free. Do you need laundry services? An iron in the room? A tea and coffee maker? Do you need Internet? WiFi? A business centre to check email and get printouts? A 24-hour coffee shop and room service in case you get hungry in the middle of the night? A gym, swimming pool, spa?

Recommendations: Check how the accommodation has been rated by other travellers and read their reviews. This can help you make the right decisions.

Through our partnership with booking.com, we allow you to book accommodation anywhere in the world at the most competitive, low rates.
