Booking.com feedback

Has anyone used this site? We are attempting to make the most of our holiday dollar as our next trip will be over the very expensive christmas/new year period.

Booking.com appear to have a lot of specials withe the 'bonus' of generally not having to pay until arrival.

However, we have a couple of concerns. 1. Many of the villas listed do not appear on the Trip Advisor reviews and 2. My great fear of turning up on the day to the statement 'sorry we have no room/booking etc.' This would be rather inconvenient with a group of 6.

We are specifically looking a villas in Seminyak.

Would love to hear from other travellers who have used this site.

we have used booking.com on many occasions. On arriving at our hotel there is always a booking for us. We have also used hotels/resorts not on TA but still are pretty good places. Overall in my personal opinion i would highly recommend then..

I have booked through booking.com as well and never had a problem. I like the fact that I can pay in local currency at the hotel.

It is reputable I believe. Will let you know on my return in March. But I emailed the hotel to confirm the booking and they said they receive most of their bookings that way - and that is the Niksoma in Legian. So I feel very assured.

Used them several times, never had any problem.

Also booked again for next summer.

Indeed fine to pay in hotel, and you can easily cancel upto several days before arrival (pls read for that hotel conditions, they may be different for each hotel, but often upto 48 hours before arrival)

And we also double check with hotel directly.

I have used Booking. Com many times in many parts of the world with no problems at all. It is, however, up to you to find suitable accommodation!
