Nuremberg, 14th January, 2010 – hotel.info, one of the leading worldwide online hotel reservation services, has launched its mobile application today.
Users can now book a hotel in their desired location using their mobile phones through m.hotel.info. Furthermore, hotel.info’s Best Price option means that the cheapest offer can be found with a single click.
All content on the mobile hotel.info portal has been designed for use on the go. Once an appropriate list of hotels has been found, the room reservation can be conveniently completed using any mobile phone. The usual international classification with stars, as well as the evaluation by hotel.info users, facilitates choosing the right hotel. Mobile users can additionally also use the portal to obtain information on hotel facilities and services, view photos and find the hotel using a map. The simplified search function allows users to search for specific hotels or hotels in specific price categories. Later the service from hotel.info will also become available as an iPhone application. This version will include additional functions and have the special look and feel of this trendy mobile device. The technical implementation of the mobile application is provided by Netbiscuits, the leading software platform for the development and operation of mobile websites.
“Even on the move our customers can now also benefit from our Best Price guarantee”, explained Thomas Wawrzacz, project manager responsible for the mobile application at hotel.info. “We are looking forward to receiving mobile bookings, especially from our business customers. Now the time really has come for mobile commerce.”
“We are glad to have been able to win another important customer from the travel sector, hotel.info”, explained Michael Neidhöfer, Managing Director of Netbiscuits. This sector will be one of the most important growth markets for mobile services in 2010.”

Since January 2007, hotel.de has extended its portfolio to include a conference enquiries and booking system. Business customers in particular stand to save time and money due to the optimised conference organisation processes facilitated by this conference tool.
hotel.info – the international brand of hotel.de AG – was created to promote the company’s expansion into international markets. To acquire new customers and hotels abroad, sales offices have already been opened in the UK (London), France (Paris), Spain (Barcelona), Italy (Rome) and China (Shanghai). The company’s high share of business customers with international operations facilitates its entry into new markets. The aim is to establish hotel.info as the leading online hotel reservation service for business and private customers in the foreign markets mentioned and then step by step across the whole of Europe.
