— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
— 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.
— I love AllTheRooms because it enables me to compare a range of providers in just one search. I'd normally spend time checking prices across a range of platforms by visiting different websites one-by-one, so this helps me to save time on my accommodation searches while planning my upcoming trips
