Which online hotel booking service is the best? First we need to determine what we expect from the searching and booking service: a large selection, the best prices and reliability. We checked what prices for accommodation in the hotel offer several popular sites.
The Park Inn by Radisson Meriton Conference & Spa Hotel Tallinn (4 stars) was chosen as a target. Address: Toompuiestee 27, Tallinn, Estonia. Family room with access to the aqua center and sauna. Dates of residence - from 5 to 6 September.
- Bookingcom - € 139.
- Hotelscom - € 139.
- The official website of the Radisson Hotels network - € 139.
The Agoda website indicated a significantly lower price at the beginning of the search, but later it turned out that this cost was without tax 9%.
All booking sites gave the same cost of living.
Original Sokos Viru Hotel. Address: Viru Valjak 4, Tallinn, Estonia. Standard double room with 1 bed or 2 separate beds. The dates of stay are the same.
- Bookingcom - € 150.
- Hotelscom - € 150.
- The official of the Sokos company website - € 150.
The russian hotels searching Ostrovok site engine were indicated prices 150 and 91 euros per day. How could the price be lower than on the hotel's website and does it meet the reliability requirements?
Another test. "Medved" motel is located next to the border between Finland and Russia. It is very convenient to stop for rest during the long journey. We were able to find this motel and information on the cost of living only on the site Bookingcom.
What recommendations can be given? If you constantly use the services of hotels of the same network, then you probably have a bonus card of this hotel.
If you travel to different cities and countries, book rooms using one of the world famous reservation services Bookingcom or Hotelscom. Prices for accommodation at all sites turned out the same, but the largest selection of hotels at the Booking. (I always use Bookingcom.)

By the way, with the help of Bookingcom it is possible to book not only a room in a hotel or a hostel, but also apartments, a cottage or a place in the camping.
