Just checking

Hello all, you have all been so helpful about my forthcoming trip to Aus/NZ Jan/Feb.o8 that I would like to pick your brains once again. I have had some good prices from Asia hotels booking site, has anybody used this site and what was the experience for hotel rooms. Many thanks

Hi brynteg

I havent used them .. but the best idea is to do a search as there have been a lot of questions and answers on asia hotels

There are some on here but they are more prevalent on the Hong Kong forums and Thailand plus other asian countries

I read many when I was planning my trip to Hong Kong as I was going to use them .... but some comments have been you have to give your credit card and they debit the money straight away but when people have got to the hotel, the room at the rate charged isnt available and have to pay more money

Others say they are great and have had no problems .. they dont seem to be as popular here in Australia

I often found booking with the hotels direct ... I got a better price but certainly lastminute.com and wotif.com are great and you get good bargains

but then you are travelling in January which is our busiest month ..

Check out the 2 sites I mentioned and get some names of hotels which might suit and then go from there

There's loads of threads knocking around about this hotel booking website of varying opinions! From my own personal experience, i thought they were good, the prices were as stated. I used them to book hotels in Melbourne and Sydney last year and both bookings were problem free!
