Travel search tools - was established in Amsterdam in 1996 as a company for booking accommodation online. Accommodation includes hotels, apartments, B & Bs, guest houses, villas.
Search by typing the name of a city, region, district or specific hotel in the search box. If known, type in the dates of the proposed stay, the number of rooms required and number of adults and children before using the Search button to initiate the search.

For this exercise Edinburgh was chosen as the destination.
The side-bar contains filters to narrow the search including Star Rating, Property Type, Facility, Room Facilities, District and Chain. In Room Facility I selected View. Further options can be added.
The map shows the location of the hotel and clicking the Show Map option shows the location of the selected hotel to other hotels nearby.
Reviews for the selected accommodation are available.
Use the Show Prices button to see prices. Prices are provided in Australian dollars and are indicative as the dollar value may change when payment is made. The Frequently Asked Questions section provides additional information. Use the Reserve Button if you want to make a booking and provide the required information.

The website can also be searched using the Browse by Destination Theme at the top of the web page. Destination Themes include Fine Dining, Shopping, Sightseeing, Beach, Relaxation and Culture.
