I would be visiting Edinburgh at the end of January 2010 and I would like to know about hotels in Edinburgh.
This online accommodation site is pretty good. I have used this a few times with accommodations bookings in Australia and have not had any issues so far. They do require credit card payment and there is a 3% booking fee, it's all legit because the site works with selective hotels, motels and apartments.
Personal tip from myself to you :) ---
I have only ever used this site for bookings places around Australia, so I'm not 100% comfortable suggesting overseas accommodations using this site, but if you feel you want to try it out, and then please do so, but please print and carry any booking confirmation papework with you...
When I see a hotel I like on www.wotif.com, I always ring up the hotel first and ask them if they are participating with this website and then ask if we can book directly with the hotel instead using the rate which was published on WOTIF. Their response has always been ‘no’ because the hotel only releases a couple of rooms to this website...Once I have made my booking on wotif, we then contact the hotel again to make sure the reservation has been confirmed by the hotel too.
loads here and they come with reviews ;)
