“otel.com is horrible - shame on trip advisor - buyer...”

Written on: 15/11/2017 by Jermaine425 (1 review written)

If you have nothing else to do and enjoy putting yourself thru total frustration and like to say goodbye to your money - book a room thru otel.com. Then because it has a free cancelation policy (as long as the hotel does) which in my case it did - cancel it and spend hours trying to communicate with them and contact them to get your money back. Still have not seen the refund - I think these are the worst customer service and business practices I have every seen. The worst customer experience… Read Full Review

My husband tried to book a hotel from this site, but luckily Wells Fargo stopped the transaction because this site is not real! We tried to contact the sight and Verizon said they could not be contacted. Another number was then suggested and it was person stating he was NOT Otel.com. Do NOT use this site!!… Read Full Review

“Refund me $$”

Written on: 11/10/2017 by Daniel436 (1 review written)

I booked two nights at Lake Tahoe Diamond Resort- check in on 7/29/2016 and check out on 7/31/2016. We got emails and also sent confirmation email before we left for the trip. When we get there on 7/29 evening, there was no room for us! After a few months of struggle with the resort, they finally said that they've already refunded money to OTEL.com. However, after dealing with Otel.come for a few months by chatting online with various agents and submitting tickets, I still haven't seen… Read Full Review

“no changes allowed!”

Written on: 01/08/2017 by Marykloss (1 review written)

i made a booking with Otel for a twin room. My cousin wanted to join us when she realized she could make the trip. I was able to get a larger room at the same hotel I had booked with Otel. When I contacted Otel they told me that I had made a change and would still be charged for the room we weren't going to use! I wasn't cancelling my room but making a change. So I am now paying for two rooms even though we are using one! The hotel was not able to help us and the room will not be used as I… Read Full Review

“Terrible vetting of hotel, and no refund after 3 months”

Written on: 02/02/2017 by plcr (1 review written)

I check my hotel bookings against tripadvisor, and otel.com had obviously accepted some bogus reviews for the hotel I booked for my husband. He had to check out after the first night of his 5 night stay for VERY good reasons. I canceled the reservation the 2nd morning, and opened a trouble ticket on their web site. After providing them with all the documentation and information they requested, a refund was approved. They "told" me by email that they were having problems processing it from… Read Full Review

“Avoid booking through OTEL.COM”

Written on: 28/09/2015 by skCassidy195 (1 review written)

Reserved deluxe room with bed and breakfast through Otel.com from 15-30/10/14 had to check out on 17/10/15 as the room was very small for three adults(worse than dormitory style). Room was set up for our arrival. Fridge nor safe worked properly. The terrace pool was disgusting and more a childs paddling pool. The canteen was dirty, choice of breakfast was poor and the staff had body odor and saw cockroaches running about. They have not refunded our money inspite of many requests. We were… Read Full Review

Booked a room through trivago with OTEL.. I had book 8 nights in a 4 star hotel. Paid in full with my visa. Arrived at hotel and they told me they did not have my reservation. Said I was booked into another. Went to the other place and it was scary. A 1 star at best. Not a place for my family.....very, very bad. Could not get ahold of OTEL as they had given me customer service numbers that were not valid. left the hotel after 6 hours. been fighting for 6 weeks now to get a refund but they will… Read Full Review

“don't trust them”

Don't trust Otel.com. They cancelled my booking 4 months after the original booking because my hotel was supposed to be "overbooked", but it's available for booking (at otel.com and other platforms) at a much more expensive price.They proposed an alternative but instead of a 5 stars hotel with Hammam and Sauna they offered me a 2 stars hotel with basically nothing. They should not be trusted. … Read Full Review

When I got my credit card payment, they had charged me for my bookings even it was unsuccessful… Read Full Review

“DO NOT BOOK”

Written on: 24/01/2015 by 69O'Connell (1 review written)

I went onto Otel to book a hotel for my holidays in May. While trying to pay for the hotel on the website it said that the payment had been declined and the reservation wasn't made. I tried a few times but it said the same thing again. I then looked at my bank account seeing that they had charged me the €790 without giving me a confirmation or reservation. I called the customer service which is basically a bunch of foreigners that can't speak English and after ten minutes the woman said they… Read Full Review

“ All worked ok for me!!”

Written on: 26/10/2014

I booked for my family (an expensive hotel for seven people) and then saw the reviews, I had quite a few sleepless nights. My son rang the hotel direct and found that everything was in order for our October break and my fears were unfounded. I had no problems with this company and would use them again. I had emails reminding me to print off the prepayment vouchers for the hotel and take them with me. Thank you Otel.com… Read Full Review

We booked a weekend break to Edinburgh on August 2nd 2014 to arrive October 10th 2014' My husband printed our prepaid accommodation voucher and set off on the long drive. We rang the 4 star Craigiebield House Hotel to let them know we would be late. We were told that we had been double booked and that they had booked us in what turned out to be a 3 star? No central heating, no toilet roll, two unsealed tea bags and the list goes on. I tried to ring the 24/7 number that is in fact a USA number… Read Full Review
