How to book a hotel
Almost all independent travelers book hotels (hostels, apartments) on the Internet. There are quite a few sites that offer a hotel reservation service. But in fact, the absolute majority of travel enthusiasts from Russia and Europe choose the same service - Booking.Com .
Why BuckingCom? Because it is the best service for booking hotels in the world. It provides the widest choice of places to stay. The company does not make any extra charges for the cost of accommodation (you book at the price of the hotel). It is also very important that the company has a very good help desk for its customers. (Hotel employees prefer to solve the problems of tourists themselves, not waiting for their treatment in BookinCom.)
We are often offered to compare the cost of booking on different sites, before booking. But after comparing the prices, we still recommend choosing the mentioned above service. Why do we then offer to compare prices? Everything is very simple - the site for prices comparesing receive its commissions in this case.
If you still decide to compare the cost and choose the cheapest option offered, we recommend doing this with the Hotellook service.
