Booking.com vs Hotels.com

Booking.com or Hotels.com – Which is Better

Booking.com has a much larger inventory of hotels than hotels.com. It features better larger images, usually has cheaper prices for luxury and boutique hotels, and has a better mobile app (though still not as good as their full website). Booking.com is also more user friendly and easier to use.

Booking.com – Pros and Cons

Booking.com website for reserving and finding hotel rooms.
• Great photos.
• Verified guest reviews are helpful and insightful.
• Stores bookings in a calendar that is very convenient for trip planning.
• Large collection of hotels. Almost every resort or hotel is available on Booking.com.
• Neighborhood listings of hotels can be useful, but not always 100% accurate.
• Also has large stock of villas, apartments, homes, and b&bs.
• Cons: Maps can be inaccurate for hotels outside of major cities.

Hotels.com – Pros and Cons

Hotels.com website for booking hotels.
• Good for last minute bookings.
• Worth checking if you’re booking a budget hotel. Not so great for 4 or 5 star hotels.
• Cons: Small images, lousy website layout.
