With offices in Amsterdam, Zurich and Herzliya, Israel, and lightning-fast translation into seven languages in one click of the mouse, EasyToBook inspires a fair amount of confidence for those planning a vacation that involves multiple time zones. Click on “More Destinations” and you’ll see what we mean. This hotel booking site offers hotel deals in 16 African countries, 28 Asian countries and many, many more. Your Ghajnsielem hotel deals await. This site can also find you hotel deals in Vegas, but don’t expect a great bargain. While this site appears to do international travel very well, its prices were much higher than other services we tested.
This hotel booking website is pretty good when it comes to features. Once you get an initial list of lodging in your destination city for the dates of your vacation, EasyToBook will make that list more specific by organizing it according to popularity, price, star rating and proximity to landmarks. EasyToBook had far less filters than the best hotel booking services, but they offer at least one high quality one – the extensive proximity filter. It’s a really nice feature if you are going to an unfamiliar city and just know one or two things about what you will be doing. In most cases the searches we did listed a wide range of landmarks, including beaches, universities, airports and more.
EasyToBook does not really provide much information about amenities until you select a specific hotel. We much prefer the sites that offer a way to narrow the search based on those qualities. Otherwise you have to do all of the narrowing yourself, which sort of defeats the purpose of using a hotel booking site.
Though the filtering system is a little lacking, the hotel information with EasyToBook is quite extensive and very helpful. Once you click on individual properties, this hotel booking site makes it pretty easy to decide whether you would want to book one of their hotel deals or not. The information is organized just the way we like it – a brief text description, with an option to read more, and then a lot of specific information about each room and the hotel amenities.
As mentioned, we were not impressed with the prices for the hotel deals we found using this hotel booking site. They seemed to be consistently higher for any and every trip we could dream up to test it. We like that you can choose to pay at the time of booking or at the hotel, though.
Other Hotel Booking Services reviews
The Customer Care tab is cluttered with a lot of information that is really just advertisement. One of the Help and FAQs questions is “How can EasyToBook offer such great discounts on hotel rooms?” That sounds like a question for their commercials and not really something that will answer a question about the booking process or finding great hotel deals.
EasyToBook is notable for its international feel and flavor, but its prices and website organization make us more likely to use a higher-ranking hotel booking site for most hotel deals.
