As a hotelier, booking.com has become bad business for the accommodation and the guest. The guest can really get a better deal booking directly with the 15% commission the hotel is billed for. Furthermore, The hotel is not able to respond to reviews, which may be a verified guest but also may be false, anonymous and one sided while booking.com hosts the comments but takes no liability. Even booking.com is able to make a response on this website to reviews.
Booking.com does not make it easy to remove promotions on the management console. Instead you have call or email customer service for removal. While we have been with them since they started in the US, our establishment and others in the association are reducing availability, removing our listings or making policies stricter than booking directly. At the same time the guest also believes there is a free cancellation anytime which is also misleading. I expect the standard response will be to contact our account manager which is without purpose or use.
