How to find a good Hotel for any Trip ?

You can read information about my trips on my sites about : Vietnam, Thailand, Barcelona, Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem.

To find an hotel, anywhere, I highly recommend to use
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).
  2. It has authentic reviews of travellers (only guests who booked
