When arranging a holiday or any other type of travel abroad, people now have more options open to them than ever before. They can scour the internet for the best hotels, flights, prices and locations, rather than in the old pre-internet days where no such research methods existed, and booking a trip often required a leap of faith.
But with this greater breadth of research, where every minute detail can be checked and measured against alternatives, comes an almost overwhelming level of information. There is always one more website to check, or another location to investigate – before long, the budding holidaymaker has spent more time researching their holiday than they will spend actually experiencing it.
RecommendedRoom is a website that aims to simplify this process, by aggregating recommendations on a wide range of overseas accommodation. There are six major cities currently front and centre on their website, Amsterdam, Barcelona, London, Rome, Paris and New York.
The website also offers an FAQ list for each location, providing extra insight into appealing local neighbourhoods and landmarks, summaries of the likely costs of visiting, and the hotels with the best scenic views. In Amsterdam, key recommendations are for the Stedelijk and Van Gogh Museum, while also listed is the Andaz Hotel Prinsengracht for its quality breakfast.
In Barcelona, there is also information provided about the closest hotels to La Rambla, and the best hotels with rooftop bars and restaurants. The page also includes a range of prices for available accommodation, including two smaller, stripped-down options in central locations that cost around $60 a night. In London, the site recommends hotels as diverse as the $500-a-night Savoy and the $100-a-night compact citizenM near to the Tower of London. It also recommends the Charlotte Street Hotel for families and the Hotel Intercontinental The O2 for couples.
In New York, the site recommends the citizenM Times Square Hotel for anyone wishing to stay close to Times Square, and for scenic views of New York City it suggests 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge or Hotel The Standard High Line. The best-rated romantic getaway in Paris is the Hotel The Peninsula, with the Hotel OFF Seine recommended for its views across Paris; there is also a range of price options provided, such as the $100-a-night Yooma Urban Lodge, which also provides family-friendly facilities such as bottle warmers and baby washrooms. There is also extensive coverage of options in Rome, with Hotel De Ricci recommended for couples and price options offered all the way up to the $700-a-night Hotel Eden Dorchester Collection.
“Because the reviews on our website are taken from those provided by actual users, they are honest and accurate and based on real experiences,” said a spokesperson for RecommendedRoom. “Gone are the days when travellers resigned themselves to potential nasty surprises when arriving at their accommodation – they can make informed decisions about their destination without lengthy research across the internet.”
