We are alternative to hotel booking services, we want guests to contact the hotel and make bookings directly with the hotel, this is why we make easy for our visitors to find here the hotel website and hotel contacts. Of course there are no commissions to be paid by hotels or guests since we do not make bookings.

The paid hotel listing option currently costs 59.00 Euros, this is a one time non refundable fee for review of the listing submission. To submit a paid hotel listing, the log-in email used can be any valid email address, see more info about hotel paid listing.
The free hotel listing option is not available any more for new submissions, this is due to the costs of keeping this hotel directory.
Why I can't find my hotel listing any more? What can I do?
We review free and paid listings regularly in order to keep the hotel directory quality. Poor quality listings are deleted without notice based on our exclusive decision. See below the main reasons we experience for removal of a hotel:
- Hotel website reasons, for instance: Not found; Returns a server error; Redirects to a non relevant website; Hosted free or does not have its own domain; Managed by a OTA (Online Travel Agency as BookingSuite or similar); Contains, or generates pop windows with, advertisement or spam; Poses a security threat as identified by a browser or by a search engine; Is just a landing page for a hotel chain website.
- Listing info reasons, for instance: Inappropriate wording or media; Spam wording or media.
- Free hotel listings may also be removed if a hotel, which has not logged in for more than 10 weeks, fails repeatedly to click on a confirmation link sent to the hotel log-in email.
If you feel your hotel can now be reconsidered, kindly resubmit your hotel and we will be glad to review it.

We list exclusively official websites of hotels, motels, b&bs, inns, resorts, hostels. Each website is reviewed for acceptance. Quality of website matters, please refer also to the agreement.

Free hosting, free domain and sub-domain hotel websites are not accepted.
