I was going through other reservation sites and gather information from hotels. I'm not even sure how I got to Agoda, but I was surprised with the prices and after some comparison I even made my registration.
I entered another site and the hotel price was at least 50% more - I also entered the hotel site itself and the hotel price was around 10% more which was surprising and good for Agoda.
The last two things that made my mind were:
a) free cancelation possible and;
b) paypal payment.
You have to admit, using a site for the first time (and I had no REFERENCE from Agoda from anyone), and using your credit card through the internet to a foreign location is sometimes not so comforting. Even my wife felt more confident when I said that, so here I am!
The only thing I would add is some hotel info, like their website or evne phone number. I do not remember finding that on Agoda, so I had to Google it and check/confirm some hotel amenities.
I hope this first time experience is worth it and I can spread the news to family and friends.
