Roomorama: Accommodation Options For The Frequent Traveller

Sponsored Review

If I have to name a thing that I really enjoy doing, I would think it’s to go traveling. I love traveling to different countries to experience different culture and lifestyles. I love to observe and watch how people in different parts of the world live their lives. As far as possible, I want to soak myself into the culture and life of that country.

One of the things I spend a lot of time planning, apart from the travel itinerary, is the place I would be staying at. Most people would look through the hotel listings and find a suitable one based on their budget, location and availability. I would usually do the same myself. But recently, I’ve been introduced to Roomorama – a website where I can book apartments as my accommodation for my holiday. These are real home apartments owned by real home owners. The central idea is to LIVE LIKE A LOCAL. Sounds like something right up my alley!

Everyone who loves a holiday knows that looking for the right accommodation to stay at on a holiday is one of the most exciting things to do. At Roomorama, this is even so! Roomorama has accommodation options in 3765 destinations and all of them look fabulous. Best of all, they are really, really affordable! Roomorama also offers options that allow the whole family to stay together in one property, complete with living room, kitchenette and separate bedrooms – Perfect for families with kids like mine! I say, ditch the glamorous hotels that you can find everywhere and go for accommodation options that will truly reflect the culture of the place you are going to!

Just some snippets to whet your appetite for a holiday soon! =D

It’s simple enough to search for something suitable for you. Just key in the city that you’ll be going to and your arrival & departure dates, and the website generates for you a list of suitable accommodation options. You may even narrow your search by indicating the price range you’re comfortable with paying. With the map option provided, you can also check if the accommodation you have selected is conveniently located to places you would like to visit. There are also tips provided for every accommodation option on their proximity to amenities, transportation network or major tourist spots, etc. Such information are definitely useful when selecting where to stay on a holiday! =D

I’m planning for a holiday with my hubby sometime in October this year to celebrate our 10th year wedding anniversary, so I can’t wait to search for a nice place to stay at for our trip! =D Look out for my blog entry on my experience in booking an accommodation on Roomorama for my upcoming trip. And if you are also planning for a trip soon, I have a piece of good news for you: Roomorama will be giving away an e-voucher worth US$50 to ONE blessed reader of The J Babies! You can use the voucher for any part of the world that you are going to! The details of the Giveaway will be announced in my next blog entry on Roomorama, which will be out in a couple of months’ time. Watch out for it! =)
