HotelHotel works in collaboration with the most important hotel reservation sites on the net. We chose to work with each one for specific reasons, taking into account aspects such as attractive prices, geographical reach, a strong presence in a particular country, an interesting portfolio of properties and the special attention shown to reservation and cancellation processes. This means that you won't find all of the booking sites on the market, just those that we judge to be the most pertinent. Our list of partners will continue to expand in the interest of improving our site and offering our customers the best possible service.
Accorhotels is more than a reservation service; it’s also one of the world’s leading hotel groups. The company runs more than 3,500 hotels under fifteen well-known brands that range from HotelF1 to Sofitel, including Mercure, Novotel and Ibis. Highly competitive price-wise and increasingly present on the web, Accor is also developing an attractive loyalty programme for regular customers.
AMOMA.com is a prominent booking site offering a vast choice of hotels (more than 230,000) at highly competitive rates, which means that this agent regularly turns up at the top of price-comparison charts. You can book with peace of mind knowing that the customer service line is open 24/7, plus the website acts as a practical interface for managing your reservations, allowing you to cancel or modify your booking, or send specific requests directly to the hotel.
Booking.com, a subsidiary of Priceline.com, is the undisputed European champion of online hotel reservations, to put it simply. Since 1996, Booking.com has applied a fierce pricing policy to its unrivalled choice of accommodation. The site is available in forty-two languages and proposes more than 445,000 properties that range from small independent guesthouses to luxurious 5-star establishments, spread across 200 countries.
CityZenBooking is a reservation website that specializes in serviced apartments, aka aparthotels. Launched in 2009 and based in Paris, the young French company quickly carved itself a niche in this growth market and its catalogue is now one of the broadest in the sector, featuring more than 1,000 properties in some thirty countries. The fact that it specializes in a specific type of accommodation allows it to keep the upper hand on prices, especially for extended trips.
The world’s number-one online travel agency, Expedia hardly needs introducing. Their aim: “to provide personalized service, the latest technology and the widest selection of vacation packages, flights, hotels, rental cars…” Based in the U.S, the company offers more than 240,000 hotels around the world and has developed tailor-made versions of its site to suit each European country.
ebookers is one of the biggest online travel agents in Europe and proposes more than 60,000 hotels around the world. Competitive in terms of pricing, the site offers a diverse range of travel-related services including flight reservation (through more than 400 airlines), package holidays and car hire. Ebookers is one of the flagship brands of the Orbitz group.
On top of its enviable URL, Hotels.com is a chief actor in the field of online hotel reservations, offering extremely competitive rates. With an inventory of more than 260,000 properties worldwide, the range of accommodation available is one of the broadest on the net. Clear descriptions, photos, reviews and maps also make their site particularly user-friendly.
hotel.info is the international face of Hotel.de, a successful German site. The company was established in 2001, has been listed on the stock exchange since 2006, and employs more than 470 staff. Impressive credentials, to say the least. With more than 250,000 hotels worldwide, free booking and cancellation, and nothing to pay up-front, the service offered by hotel.info is on a par with all of the leading sites.
The online reservation site HRS.com gives customers access to 250,000 hotels throughout the world, covering a broad spectrum of price and comfort categories. HRS has a firm grip on the German market, and has its sights set on becoming a European leader in providing accommodation solutions across the globe.
Lastminute is one of Europe’s most well-known online travel brands. As its name suggests, the site originally specialized in last-minute offers, but the company has now developed into a fully-blown travel agency proposing a myriad of services. As far as accommodation is concerned, the site’s 60,000-strong database of hotels isn’t the biggest on offer, but it’s enough to have carved out a foothold in this highly competitive market.
LateRooms.com Has a built up a solid reputation for its particularly dense and varied catalogue of UK properties, which range from upscale hotels to B&Bs and youth hostels. The company’s new mission is to conquer the overseas market, and now proposes more than 20,000 accommodation solutions worldwide. As its name suggests, the site specializes in last-minute deals, obtaining rates that are often hard to beat.
Splendia is the upper crust of hotel reservation sites. Far from proposing an exhaustive list of accommodation, its exclusive portfolio features just 3,000 hotels, each of which have been individually approved by Splendia. Promising properties of “luxury and character” spread across the five continents, a dedicated customer service team on hand 24/7 and attractive rates, this company has a lot to live up to. Judging by its success over the past few years, however, it seems to have no trouble delivering.
Voyages-sncf.com is the online travel agency run by the French rail company SNCF. The website quickly moved beyond selling train tickets to propose hotel reservations (offering nearly 205,000 hotels worldwide at competitive prices), flights, car hire and other travel-related services. France’s number one travel site in terms of turnover, it’s a heavy-weight contender that can definitely pack a punch.
