Advantages Wide range of options; plenty of information on products
Disadvantages site can be slow
I first assumed that lastminute was primarily a flight booking site and did not use it. However, when I went looking for a good hotel in London I could afford I ended up - somehow - at the site and have used it regularly since.How good their deals are in other areas I do not know, but for hotels in London they are excellent.
Go to the home page and click on the 'hotels' homepage. Then you can either do a search by entering London (or wherever) and your arrival date. Alternatively, the site also has specific pages on, for example, 'London £50-£100'This is where I usually start. This section can run to 100 hotels in all categories and price ranges so there is usually something to find.Hotels are listed nine to a page with a small photograph, a star rating, area and headline price. Click on more info link on any of these and you will get all the information you need - hotel, room and leisure facilities, details of restaurants and bars, highlights of the local area, and a range of rooms and prices avaliable on your arrival date. If your interested hit 'check availability', enter your arrival and departure dates, hit 'continue'and you will be given a list of rooms avaliabe on your dates and the price. Particularly useful here is that you are also told how many of each type of room is available. If there are 20 you can indulge in some more searching; if only 1 you might decide to book before someone else snaps it up.
From here its just a matter of entering your details and confirming the reservation. An email confirmation follows and, normally, lastminute debit your card saving you the bother of arguing with them at the check out desk!And the best thing of all is the prices you can get. In the last year I have picked up five nights in a 4* Hilton at Green Park for £85 including breakfast; one night at a Millennium in Grosvenor Square for £75; and three nights in a 4* Melia in Regent's Park for £90.
If you want a hotel in London lastminute gets a strong recommendation from me.
