With all the travel accommodation booking sites available, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, and quickly. First, you have to decide between the type of room you want to stay in — there’s hotels, apartments, hostels and more… Then you have to decide which room is best for you, factoring in location, amenities, ratings, aesthetics… and the list goes on. Inevitably, you’ll end up comparing that same room (as well as ones that look almost exactly the same) on different sites and on different days, waiting to find the best rate at the best time. Woah.
We’re here to help.
AllTheRooms is, quite simply, a booking site for all the rooms. We’re the largest accommodation search engine, combining sites like Expedia with Airbnb and Jetsetter — plus we’ve got some sites you may not have even heard of yet. Our search engine will compare the best prices on all of these sites so you know you’re booking your perfect home-away-from-home.
So… How do you start? We’ll walk you through.
1: Tell us where you want to go
When you check out alltherooms.com, the first thing you’ll see is a space to let us know where you want to go. We’re based in New York City, so we’ll give you the run-through using our home-turf.

2: Tell us your travel dates
Let’s type in dates for New Years and see what we get.

3: Pick your space
It’s that easy (really). Our search pulled up thousands of accommodations. Ready to book now? Go for it. But if a couple thousand options still feels overwhelming for you, we’re right there with you. That’s why we built in a ton of ways you can personalize your search.
4: Customize your search
Check out that sidebar on the left-hand side of your screen. Let us know what you’re into. Just want to search for hotels? You got it. In the mood for a little B&B? You bet.
This time around, we decided to check out some homes and apartments and opted in to check out some secret hotels as well.
Next, you can let us know your budget. We’re aiming for $92 to $525 for this stay, but you can always play around with that slider bar until you find a sweet spot.
You can also search by location and user reviews.
You can also search for top providers. If you know you want to book from a certain site (or two or three or…), we can sift those for you. We decided to check out Airbnb today, and of course, we wanted to stay somewhere with Wifi.
5: Let us know how you want to see your results
In the upper right-hand corner, you’ve got the option to sort by relevance, price, distance or rating. You can also move between a list view or map view.
When you click a link, we’ll forward you directly to the booking site. Done, done and done.
