World's travellers uncover Booking's best

New 'Booking.yeah' category celebrates accommodations that go the extra mile in The Booking's Best Awards, based on over 40 million verified reviews.

AMSTERDAM – Booking.com unveiled The Booking’s Best Awards – an exclusive award that goes to only 260 accommodations out of a possible 600,000 – as decided by over 40 million real, relevant and recent customer reviews.
