The World Hotel Awards by Booked.net were established with the goal of providing traveller with lists of the best value for money accommodation in any destination worldwide.

Our awards are given after measuring and calculating a value for money score to generate lists for any destination.

To do this we:

  • Aggregate data from 18 global and local review sites.
  • Analyse more than 3 billion guest reviews for 300,000-plus accommodation types and categories.
  • Use an algorithm that measures the value score. The score is based on the level of customer satisfaction in the type of accommodation compared to the price you pay. This then allows us to list the best, highly recommended and recommended accommodation in every category.

The awards apply to any type of accommodation, from hotels to villas and apartments. Accommodation is awarded at a country, regional and city or specific destination level for accommodation type, theme and star rating.

The Best, Highly Recommended, and Recommended accommodation is awarded.

How we judge?

The aggregation process

The judging process begins with the collection of actual guest reviews made throughout the calendar year – from January 1 to December 31. Then the percentage of guests that rated the accommodation favourably be it “good”, “very good” or “excellent” are found.

Reviews are measured and combined depending on destination.

Other factors are considered in individual categories – for example when selecting the winners, finalists, highly recommended and recommended hotels in the “romantic” category, reviews left by couples are more influential.

  • We take the percentage of travellers who recommend accommodation at a country, regional and city or specific destination level for accommodation type, theme and star rating.
  • The accommodation rating is then compared with the average rating for accommodation at the same destination.
  • The accommodation’s average price per night for two people is then compared with the average price for the destination. The average price by destination is calculated across 2, 3 and 4-star hotels.
  • The final rating and price scores are then used to calculate the value score.

Benefits for travellers

The value score awarded to accommodation gives travellers assurance that the properties listed offer the best value for money in any destination.

Benefits for travellers

Best, Highly Recommended and Recommended accommodation will be automatically given a hotel award badge and presented with a certificate.

  • Showcase your success.
  • Stand out from your competitors.
  • Attract more guests.
  • Display your success via special badges tailor-made to be displayed on your hotel’s website.

Scope and nature of our Service
On our Website we provide an online platform through which the Hotel Providers can offer their products and service for order, purchase, reservation, hire, and through which visitors of the Website can discover, search, compare, and make an order, reservation, purchase or payment (i.e. the Booking Service). By using the Booking Service (e.g. by making a Reservation through the Booking Service), you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the Hotel Provider with which you make a reservation.

When you start making your Reservation, we act only as an intermediary between you and the Hotel Provider, transmitting the relevant details of your Reservation to the relevant Hotel Provider(s) and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the Hotel Provider. Booked.net does not (re)sell, rent out, offer any (travel) product or service.

When rendering our Booking Service, the information that we expose is based on the information provided to us by the Hotel Providers. Although we will use reasonable skill and care while providing you with our Booking Service, we cannot guarantee that all information is accurate, complete or correct, nor can we be held liable for any errors (including manifest and typographical errors), any interruptions (whether due to any (temporary and/or partial) breakdown, repair, upgrade or maintenance of our Website or otherwise), inaccurate, misleading or untrue information or non-delivery of information. Each Hotel Provider is held responsible for the accuracy, completeness and correctness of the information (including the rates/fees/prices, policies & conditions and availability) displayed on our Website. Booked.net does not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation or endorsement of the quality, service level, hotel class or (star) rating of any Hotel Provider (or its facilities, venue, products or services) made available.

Our Booking Service is made available for personal and non-commercial use only. Therefore, you are not allowed to re-sell, deep-link, use, copy, monitor (e.g. spider, scrape), display, download or reproduce any content or information, software, reservations, products or services available on this Website for any commercial or competitive purpose.

Prices and We Price Match
The prices displayed on our Website as offered by the Hotel Providers are highly competitive. Relevant fees and taxes (including tourist/city tax) may be charged by the Hotel Provider in case of a no-show or cancellation.

All prices on the Booked.net website are per room for your entire stay, unless stated differently. These prices can be changed by the Hotel Provider. We show the price we get from the Hotel Provider for the room for the dates you select. Please check the room details to see what is included in the price and what is not.

Sometimes cheaper rates for a specific stay are available on our Website by the Hotel Providers, however, these rates may carry special restrictions and conditions, for example non-cancelable and non-refundable. Please check the relevant booking conditions and details thoroughly for any such conditions before making your reservation.

We want you to pay the lowest possible price for your product and service of choice. If you find your accommodation of choice booked through our Website, with the same booking conditions, at a lower rate on the Internet after you have made a reservation through us, we will match the difference between our rate and the lower rate under the terms and conditions of the We Price Match. Our We Price Match promise does not apply to non-accommodations related products and services.
To get the refund, please send us the link to the website with a cheaper rate within 24 hours from the moment of making your reservation.

The currency converter is for information purposes only and should not be relied upon as accurate and real time; actual rates may vary.

Obvious errors and mistakes (including misprints) are not binding.

All special offers and promotions are marked as such. If they are not labelled as such, you cannot derive any rights in case of obvious errors or mistakes.

Credit card or bank transfer
Certain Hotel Providers, if applicable and available, offer the opportunity for Reservations to be paid (wholly or partly and as required under the payment policy of the Hotel Provider) to the Hotel Provider during the Reservation process by means of secure online payment (all to the extent offered and supported by your bank). You will not hold Booked.net liable or responsible for any (authorized, (allegedly) unauthorized or wrong) charge by the Hotel Provider and not (re)claim any amount for any valid or authorized charge by the Hotel Provider (including for pre-paid rates, no-show and chargeable cancellation) of your credit card.

For certain reservations, Booked.net facilitates (through third party payment processors) the payment of the relevant reservations (i.e. the payment facilitation service) for and on behalf of the Hotel Provider. Payment is safely processed from your credit/debit card or bank account to the bank account of the accommodation provider through a third party payment processor. Any payment facilitated by us for and on behalf of, and transferred to the Hotel Provider will in each case constitute a payment of (part of) the booking price by you of the relevant reservation in final settlement of such (partial) due and payable price and you cannot reclaim such paid monies.

For certain (non-refundable) rates or special offers, please note that Hotel Providers may require that payment is made by credit card, and therefore your credit card may be pre-authorized or charged (sometimes without any option for refund) upon making the Reservation. Please check the (reservation) details of your product or service of choice thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your Reservation.

Pre-payment, cancellation and no-show
By making a Reservation with a Hotel Provider, you agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of that Hotel Provider, and to any terms and conditions of the Hotel Provider that may be additionally applied to your Accommodation, including services exercised and/or products offered by the Hotel Provider. The relevant (delivery/purchase/use/carrier) terms and conditions of a Hotel Provider can be obtained with the relevant Hotel Provider. The general cancellation and no-show policy of each Hotel Provider is made available on our Website on the Hotel Provider information pages, during the booking process and in the confirmation email. Please note that certain rates, fees or special offers are not eligible for cancellation, refund or change. Applicable city/tourist tax may still be charged by the Hotel Provider in case of a no-show or charged cancellation. Please check your reservation details thoroughly for any such conditions before making your reservation. Please note that the Reservation which requires down payment or (wholly or partly) prepayment may be cancelled (without a prior notice of default or warning) insofar the relevant (remaining) amount(s) cannot be collected in full on the relevant due or payment date in accordance with the relevant payment policy of the Hotel Provider and the reservation. Cancellation and prepayment policies may change depending on segment, product or service of each Accommodation.

If you wish to review, change or cancel your Reservation, please go back to the confirmation email and follow the instructions therein. Please note that you may be charged for your cancellation according to the Hotel Provider's cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy or not be entitled to any repayment of any (pre)paid amount. We recommend that you read the cancellation, (pre)payment and no-show policy of the accommodation provider carefully before making your reservation and remember to make further payments on time as may be required for the relevant reservation.

In the event of late or delayed arrival on the day of your check-in or if you arrive the next day, make sure to timely discuss this with the Hotel Provider so they know when to expect you to avoid cancellation of your Accommodation (Reservation) or charge of the no-show fee. If needed, our customer support team will help you with informing the Hotel Provider. Booked.net does not take any responsibility for the consequences of your delayed arrival or any cancellation or charged no-show fee by the Hotel Provider.
