Don't bother about these sites. You don't need to ask us either. Google the name and you can see numerous complaints. There's no free lunch!

My preference is always to book direct.

Was too good to be true in my case:(

I booked hard rock sentosa as thru olotels it was cheaper and included breakfast for $245aud, only to have them send me a voucher for festive hotel- they blamed system error then tried to charge me an extra $40 to re book my original booking at hard rock!

I requested a refund - hopefully I get it back. I will never book with them again after my experience and their very bad reputation that I learnt of after making my booking

I booked a night at MIssoni, Edinburgh. No problem at all. I will use them again if the price is right.

I know that the prices are just too tempting. But I dont recommend them. I made 2 bookings with them and they claim that the bookings are confirmed but the hotels do not confirm that they have received the bookings.

Eventually the stress was too much and I cancelled the bookings and luckily they refunded my money back to them.

Better to pay more and get some peace of mind.

Dear mrijay,

Olotels has a certain number of rooms booked in our partner hotels. The names of the passengers can only be released to the hotel 2 days prior to arrival. It is only normal for the hotel to not have any trace of your name or reservation number when calling them too soon.

We would like to investigate this further! Can you kindly provide our customer service with a contact number? We will then contact you directly about this issue.

We remain at your service for any other information.

Kind regards,

Olotels Team

Really???? Nice practice, i have to admit, especially with so-called CONFIRMED bookings. Guys, with such a reply you are ruining your own business!
