First of all, I'd like to say how awesome this website is. Thanks to whomever is running it and supporting it!
So about the trip now. I am planning a trip with my GF and a friend. Where we will need two rooms. We would want the following:
5 star hotel
Old Town - El Born
Travelling between July 19th to July 24th
Willing to pay up to 150 dollars a night per room
No specific amenities because 5 starts usually have it all :P
It is June 16th now, a month prior to the trip. I have tried multiple strategies by choosing one zone, star, price (70% discount) then increase the zones. Then I would restart with a higher bid going up to 150 dollars a night (40% discount).
Does this strategy work? Also when would be the best time to bid? Also is my max bidding price to low (median price for area $250)? Would it be better to split the trip up into two and possibly change hotels mid stay?
Would really appreciate the help!
