Remember when planning your next trip was actually fun? A time when the promise of a new adventure tomorrow meant a slightly mad mix of maps, guidebooks and maybe just your own whims today? Well traveler, rejoice, because that more serendipitous style is now back but with a modern touch, thanks to Travelmyth.
Our mission? To provide you with the best personalized travel recommendations possible — just like the travel agent who, before the advent of online booking, listened to you and helped plan your most memorable trips.
Travelmyth is the hotel recommendation engine for sophisticated travelers like you, the seekers of unique holiday experiences. With 60 unique categories and growing, with Travelmyth you can choose and combine any category to find the accommodation that's the perfect match for you.
We answer advanced hotel search queries based on your interests and recommend the best hotels for you. Then we compare prices from the biggest booking engines to find the best deal for each hotel. It's up to you to book on our booking partners' sites or directly on Travelmyth. We currently have 4,919,193 hotels in 60 categories.
Thanks to Travelmyth it's no longer necessary to name your destination when starting a hotel search. It's a new way to shop for your next hotel stay if you are not sure where to go. Instead of asking you to name your destination — like most other hotel search engines do — we ask you only to select a preference from a list of hotel categories. Then we recommend the best hotels based on your ratings and explain why they are the best choices.
We emphasize "best" because we want to present you with the top choices – not necessarily the cheapest ones. There are plenty of other travel search engines out there if you are looking for just the cheapest rate. Of course, we compare prices from several booking sites to make sure that you book the best hotel for you at the best available rate.
Before Travelmyth, it was often frustratingly difficult to find the best hotel based on what you actually liked. Have you ever tried to search for the best beachfront hotel that's also pet-friendly—and has a golf course? What about staying at a former castle that has its own vineyard? By allowing complex searches and maintaining hotel collections that aren't available on any other search engine, Travelmyth helps you discover hotels that you're bound to love but probably never have discovered otherwise.
You may have noticed that hotel searches in specific categories are generally poorly answered or not even answered at all by our competitors. So what we have done is built proprietary technology (using sophisticated algorithms and AI machine learning models) to collect information not available anywhere else online that allows us to respond to long tail search queries even in the most unique and specific categories.
Through our contracts with hotel wholesalers and our proprietary technology we're able to offer competitive prices at tens of thousands of hotels.
After collecting and analyzing massive amounts of data for hundreds of thousands of destinations, hotels and landmarks around the world we rank hotels using a proprietary algorithm. We then return the most relevant results according to your query and present them in a comprehensive way.
We now have advanced algorithmic technology allowing us to supply results for more complex searches than the most intelligent and well-traveled travel agent could ever dream of handling.
Proprietary technology helps our editors handpick tens of thousands of hotels with immediate proximity to a beach. Beachfront hotels may be separated from the beach by a road, but not by other buildings in between. For hundreds of beachfront hotels, we have collected specific data regarding accessibility, type of beach, cost of umbrellas and water sport activities, presence of a lifeguard and many other details just not available anywhere else.
You can see all beachfront hotels in Europe or limit your search to a country, region or destination. Examples:
Of course, you can also try combined searches with your favorite categories, for example:
Try the map view, so that you can easily check the hotel and the beach.
We’ve asked hoteliers more questions than even the most demanding travelers with pets would ask! We know costs, leash rules, waste disposal requirements and any pet accessory the hotel may provide. We even know if dogs are allowed on beds!
Based on their responses, we rank the dog friendliness of each hotel. For example, a hotel without extra fees and with leash-free play areas will rank higher than a hotel with extra fees and a kennel requirement. This is how Travelmyth recommends the best dog-friendly hotels.
Here are some areas that we have already collected extensive data on. More areas will be added soon:
Popular combined searches include:
Among the 60 hotel categories that we describe, some are unique. Have you ever dreamed about swimming in an infinity pool? How about staying in a monastery or castle converted into a hotel? What about a hotel where children are prohibited? Or a hotel with a vineyard or with over-water bungalows. How about an eco-friendly hotel? Or even a haunted hotel? What about a brand-new or a skyscraper hotel?
We have all these categories available (and more) and they can always be searched in combination with more conventional options like luxury, spa, boutique, beachfront, five-star, small, budget and still others…
We think you'll love using Travelmyth, and thank you for giving us a whirl. We‘d love to hear your feedback!
