Booking.com is the best website that I have found in terms of functionality when you want to find good accommodation in a new city. If you are a solo traveller then you might want to stay in places where you can easily meet people. Or may be you want your own space and at the same time want to meet new people. May be you want to be in a central location where you can walk to or at least in commutable convenient distance from the popular attractions. There are several advantages of using booking.com if you know how to use it properly.
I use this website very often, though I refer to other sites such as Airbnb and hostelworld.com This one is my favourite.
It is my favourite because you get a genius badge as you use the website more and more. That means you get discounts, secret deals and perks such as early check in and late check out.
Below are some tips to find the best accommodation that suits your personality and intention of travel.
1. Use the “best properties for” sorting option
This will show the best suited for properties for what you have selected.
