— I love how AllTheRooms shows a map with room price tags straight away when you search, it makes it so quick and easy to choose the right hotel, at the right price in the right location. Perfect for those with busy lifestyles! The AllTheRooms website is so user friendly. WiFi. Brilliant!
— The great thing about AllTheRooms is their ability to cover all bases. If you are travelling solo, with a partner, friends or even a larger family. There is something there for everyone and that is a hugely powerful tool that I believe it boasts moreso than competitors.
