I have not missed the Frankfurt Book Fair (FBF) for the last 3 years and certainly will not going to miss it this year. Having made friends and connections with publishers from around the world, it is hard to say no to FBF and Frankfurt itself. I like to think of Frankfurt as my 2nd home. 🙂
A lovely fall scenery near Main River.
This year will be different as I will travel with a writer friend, Syikin, and will be sharing a room together. Planning for accommodation is good because during the book fair, all hotels in the area will mark up their hotel price. If normal rate is Euro 50, the rate will go up to Euro 100 or more.
Using HotelsCombined, Syikin and I found a cheap hotel in the central station (Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof), a walking distance (about 10 minutes) to the book fair.
For your information, HotelsCombined is a metasearch engine where you can compare hotel rates and find cheaper deals before planning your holidays.
You just have to type in the city that you are going and the date of travel, HotelsCombined will do the searching and list all the hotels available. The list contains the availability and prices from all the top travel websites from around the world, including Booking.com, Expedia, Hotels.com, Agoda, Venere, LateRooms and many more.
Apart from the list, a refine search can be done to see Star Ratings, Price, Property Type, Guest Ratings, Hotel Features, Theme and many more.
Easy peasy, right? HotelsCombined believed that booking accommodation online should be easy. Instead of having to trawl through a hundred websites looking at a thousand ‘deals’, you just have to visit to HotelsCombined to know you’ve booked the hotel that’s right for you – at the best possible price.
