HotelsCombined Reviews

Looking to some HotelsCombined reviews, customers are not happy on how things go with HotelsCombined. Other HotelsCombined reviews, show that travelers are commenting mainly about HotelsCombined providing incorrect rates and a ripoff. Here are some of the most recent HotelsCombined reviews posted:

When I got to the hotel in the middle of the night, I found that my reservation was cancelled by the company two weeks earlier without notifying me or returning my money. I ended up losing almost 1000€, had to make another reservation through the hotel which was 200€ more than the original price. Even though I have previously had good experiences with, I don’t think I will be site anymore.”

  1. I wish i read these reviews before booking. I just recently booked accomodation for the manta on view. It put me through to It is decieving because it tells you that you have saved big. Then you see the great price and book. Then it voids and you don’t have a booking as they dont have the room or that price anymore. You then find out that you have been charged and you dont even have a booking because it voided.
