How to find a good Hotel ?

Hello, I am the author of this blog about Bangkok. I am travelling quite a lot. Here is how I search for an hotel, when I need one :

To find an hotel, anywhere, I highly recommend to use Booking.com
I’m using Booking because :

  1. It has a very good user interface, letting me decide which hotel
    is the best for me (I will explain).

commented by just two persons.
Technical Note : Do the “sort by” as a last step (to make sure it was
taken into account).
