does anoyone have any experience with booking hotel rooms using http://www.asiarooms.com ??? They seem to offer some interesting hotel rates but I have not heard of them before so I'd be interested in hearing some references first.
Thanks in advance.

Yep. We booked a hotel in Austraila with them recently. They were fine. As you pay Asiarooms, they make the booking in the hotel, but don't pass on your name till three days before your arrival. I think this is so you can cancel easily, though I'm not sure.
We found them very efficient, and had no problems with them at all.
Thanks for your reply. I found their rates for London to be very interesting (the rate they offer for a *** hotel I§m interested in is almost 20 GBP/night cheaper than cheapest, prepaid, no refund rate, 14-days advace purchase rate offered by that chain of hotels website).
BTW, since they are (I believe) Thai company using Singapore bank, do you remeber in what currency they charged your credit card?

There seems to be problems with asiarooms.com sometimes, especially when the hotels you select aren't offered as "instant confirmation". I haven't used them myself, but have read a few threads like this one on other sites:
