Not travelling until July/August 2011 would i be pushing my luck to book through them this early. By reading reviews on lost bookings i m a little wary booking this early out, but dont want to miss out on good rates either
You could register with Hoxton Hotel and try your luck with £1 per night accomodation?
I ve booked many times with Laterooms and had no problem but admittedly no more than 6 months before going on a trip.
I ve booked an apartment through Laterooms for next August and already had confirmation from the owners. Laterooms are only an agent so when you get your confirmation they ve done there bit, lost bookings I imagine, are down to the individual hotels.
Thanks thats when i m looking at too. So your confirmation comes from the hotel itself ?
I booked through Laterooms.com on June 4th, 2010, for a booking in January 2011 for a week s stay in Frankfurt. Even thought this weekis the PEAKEST time in Frankfurt due to Heimtextil, but still this is well in advance.
Further I reconfirmed the booking by asking them on e-mail. They replied that yes, the hotel has confirmed the booking. So, all is well till now!
Now comes September 30th, nearly 4 months after my booking. i receive their call and mail, informing me that the hotel as decided not to honor my booking.. Is this child play going on?? Anyways, they told me they had no other option, and they cant do anything about it.
Since this was the Peak time in Frankfurt, I now have to shell out nearly 3 times more than what I was supposed to pay. My suggestion- don t ever trust this site. If you getting a deal, book it as a refundable price, but do also keep another option ready (May be book another refundable hotel at some other site!)
