About Us & Contact
Snippets of book reviews from well-known publishers like The New York Times, Washington Post and others are often featured on the book cover itself when it goes on sale on Amazon or in-store. The same applies to videos and music albums. Four or five-star ratings often feature on the cover.
For other industries this isn’t the case typically, think for instance about the hotel world. Many leading publishers and travel blogs publish articles about the best hotels in cities around the world, but these recommendations aren’t readily visible to the general public – you would either need to search for it on Google or read the article when published.
That’s what we’re trying to solve with RecommendedRoom.
Recommendations from trusted experts
We aggregate recommendations from loads of trusted publishers and travel experts like Lonely Planet, CN Traveler, CNN, The New York Times, Fodor’s, Frommer’s and The Guardian. We list quotes from those publishers and include a link to the relevant article so you can read more about their recommendation or review if you wish, that way we also resurface some articles from those publishers and send them incremental traffic and possibly some extra income.
Referenced with customer reviews
We only list products or places on our website which have a customer review rating of at least 4 out of 5 stars. That way you can be sure that only great hotels, hostels, bed & breakfasts and guesthouses are listed on RecommendedRoom. The ratings you see on our website are actual customer ratings who visited the place; these are aggregated from different sources like hotel booking websites, search engines, travel websites, the official hotel website and more.
Easily book places with confidence and at the cheapest price
We also include links to where you can book those hotels, making it more convenient for you as a user. You can quickly book those places at trusted websites like Booking.com or Expedia and be assured you get the best price as those suppliers have a price match guarantee, meaning that if you would find a cheaper price elsewhere they would match that price.
We earn money through a commission we receive if you decide to book something at the website (like Expedia or Booking.com) we direct you to for purchasing those products. These commissions have no influence on the ranking. By default, the places are ranked by the number of recommendations, and you can decide to list them by price, in chronological order or show recommendations from individual publishers.
