accommodation

I would recommend to use booking.com for hotel search. After you choose hotel or several hotel options we can check if it is cheaper to book it via booking.com or directly from the hotel. And I can tell you if the hotel is good, its advantages and disadvantages. We also can book an apartment for you.
