hotelverleichBei der Unterkunftssuche setzt jeder Urlauber andere Kriterien an. Der Eine sucht nur eine günstige Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten und ist viel am Strand unterwegs und der andere möchte mehr Entspannen und ein schönes Ambiente zum Lesen haben.
Businessreisende haben nochmal andere Anforderungen, die auch ein einfaches Arbeiten mit dem Laptop erlauben und absolute Nachtruhe garantieren.

Nutzen Sie die Hotelsuche von, denn hier ist die Besonderheit, dass Sie nicht nur die Hotelzimmerpreise miteinander vergleichen, sondern auch geografisch zugeordnete Privatzimmer entdecken, die oftmals vom Platzangebot und dem Ambiente im großen Gegensatz zu den Hotels stehen.
