Looking at booking the Tropitel Sahl Hasheesh in May, already got our flights booked with Monarhch, and was wondering if anyone has ever used bookings.com to book the accommodation as they're coming out very cheap.

Not for anywhere in Egypt but for several other places worldwide. Never had a problem yet and quite often you can pay very close to the departure date which is a bonus.

Hi,Like the previous reply, I have not used booking.com for Egypt, but I have used them when booking accommodation all over the world on numerous times.I have never had any problems with them, they are really good, and you often don't need to pay until you check into the hotel.

I have used them a few times never had a problem.An advantage of using them is that you can keep an eye on the price and if it reduces just cancel and re-book.

Hi,we've also been looking at this hotel for May and noticed that booking.com were the cheapest. What worries me is that it states that under room type 'does not include 2% city tax and 12% service charge`,that's 14% on top of the Bill.I found Sunshine.Co.uk the cheapest with everything all in. hope this helps x

I have booked this hotel via booking.com and also booked my flights from Monarch. I was dubious myself about using them but I myself checked with friends and family and was surprised how many people had used them no problems.

I have checked my booking with them and mine states that the service charge and city tax are Included.

I use booking.com regularly and have never had any problems. Often you only have to pay on arrival.

Been using them for a few years in many countries, no problems ever, and easy to cancel or change bookings
