“Booking.com works with hotel owners who lie and cheat”

Written on: 15/06/2012 by DouglasStein (1 review written)

I've had very negative experiences with booking.com. The one place they booked us in Venice was a disaster: B&B A Venice Emeralds. No one was there at the B&B when we arrived at 5:30! Then finally at 9:30 the manager told us that they were overbooked and sent us to a much inferior B&B that we had to find ourselves, which was also overbooked. We ended up finding a place by 11 that night ourselves and are still fighting to get our money back from the B&B we booked (B&B A Venice Emeralds). Booking.com was very unresponsive. Never followed up on my emails, I had to do all the calling. I think it's a bad idea to book with a company that makes you pay everything up front ($600 for us). Stay away from booking.com and B&B A Venice Emeralds !!

When I recounted our experience to friends, almost everyone had a booking.com horror story, that involved being ripped off.

Hi Douglas,

Help us get to the bottom of this. Can you post your booking number? We will investigate this issue.

Kind regards,
