If you've ever travelled with Android you'll know that it using one of the many Android travel apps can really help make planning your travels / being in an unknown place easier. Hotel Search HRS-250000 Hotels is one of these apps and it lets you book one or more hotel rooms via your Android device.

The first step would be to hit Hotel Search in the application's main menu. Next you will need to enter some details about what you're looking for. Enter your destination (your current location is also identified using GPS). You will also need to supply your arrival date as well as how long you wish to stay. You can also choose to set a budget limit or how use stars as a search criteria; use the Filter option for this. Finally, you will need to indicate for how many persons the room(s) should be, as well as how many rooms you will be needing.
Then simply hit the Search button and a lists with matching results will pop up within a few seconds. Hotels are listed according to the location in relation to the location you supplied. In order to see more details simply click on a hotel. You will then see how much it costs per night as well as other details. Payment options are also listed. Hit Media in order to see photos and in most cases even videos of a hotel. There is also a Map option showing the hotels exact location on a Google Map.
Add a hotel to your Favourites via the menu on the top right. Book it by hitting the red button on the bottom right.

In case you're in a real big hurry, try the Hotels Now! feature which uses the camera in order to display hotels in your vicinity on the display. Be warned, however, that this feature did not prove to be particularly useful during our test runs. It's perhaps more of a gimmick than an actually usable feature.

On to the settings. Should you be a HRS client you can enter your client number in the settings. Very useful: once you've made reservations somewhere the hotel will automatically be included in the Android address book, which makes for easy navigation. You can also change the currency in which prices are displayed.

Bottom line:
Hotel Search HRS-250000 Hotels is definitely useful when it comes to booking hotels. Relevant information is displayed efficiently and comprehensively which means that you see what's relevant and important without being overwhelmed with information.

Screen & Controls

Using Hotel Search HRS-250000 Hotels is a breeze. All control elements can be found on the screen and used via touchscreen, and seeing as there aren't very many of them the app is super easy to navigate. A cool bonus: the Ice Cream Sandwich style is used for devices that run on anything under Android 4.0.
 

Speed & Stability

It doesn't take long for Hotel Search HRS-250000 Hotels to load, but it did crash once during our test runs. We were able to reproduce this crash which indicates that we're dealing with a bug, but the good news is that it's not likely that you will encounter it. Basically, the app will crash if you're in the map view of a hotel, then hit the reservations menu on the top right and then try to hit the back button. In other words: an unlikely scenario.

Price/Performance Ratio

Hotel Search HRS-250000 Hotels is available for free from the AndroidPIT App Center.

    Victims of deadly Swiss coach crash mourned
    Belgium is mourning the deaths of 28 people - 22 of them children - in a coach crash in Switzerland.
    The coach, carrying 52 people [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/brassiere][b] back to Belgium following a skiing trip, struck a wall in a tunnel on Tuesday.
    Relatives of the victims have flown to Switzerland - with many unsure about the fate of their children.
    King Albert said his thoughts "go out to the [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/womens slipper][b] victims and their families". Investigators say there is no indication that the bus was speeding.
    The bus crashed shortly after 21:00 (20:00 GMT) on Tuesday near Sierre, in the Swiss canton of Valais, close to the border with Italy.
    The Belgian foreign ministry said most of the children were aged around 12, and the bus was one of three hired by a Christian [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/bra size][b] group. The other two reached Belgium safely.
    The children had spent a week skiing in [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/work footwear][b] Val d'Anniviers in the Swiss Alps.
    Those on board the bus that crashed were from the Stekske primary school in Lommel, near the Dutch border, and from St Lambertus in Heverlee, near Leuven, with the numbers roughly even.
    Although most of the victims are Belgian, [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/wet wavy][b] Swiss officials say the dead include seven Dutch children. Among those injured are three Dutch, one Pole and one German.
    The 24 injured have been taken to hospitals in Sion, Bern and Lausanne. Officials say three were in a coma.
    A helpline for families has been set up.
    Early on Wednesday distraught relatives attended [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/swimsuits for women][b] meetings at St Lambertus school, where they were given the names of pupils known to have survived.
    "Parents who know their child is alive are relieved, but for the others it's terrible," said parish priest Dirk De Gendt.
    Speaking outside the primary school in Lommel, local bishop Patrick Hoogmartens said the families were feeling powerless.
    "None of the parents knows what has happened [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/ladies handbags][b] exactly, if their child has been affected or not," he said.
    About 100 relatives later flew to Switzerland on board a government plane.
    They were comforted by the royal couple as they left from a military airport near Brussels.
    Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo - who also travelled to Switzerland on Wednesday - told reporters in Sion that is was "an absolutely tragic day" for [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/adidas zx racer][b] Belgium.
    'Like war'
    During the news conference Swiss prosecutor Olivier Elsig said the bus was nearly new.
    It hit a concrete wall that forms part of an emergency [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/womens thongs][b] access section head-on, in a tunnel where the speed limit is 100km/h (62 mph).
    Mr Elsig said the speed of the bus was still being determined, but there was no indication that it was travelling too fast.
    The children on the bus were wearing seat belts and no other vehicle was involved, he added.
    Mr Elsig said that possible causes being investigated included a technical failure, the driver suffering a health problem, or "human error".
    Earlier, Belgian Transport Minister Melchior Wathelet said the company that ran the coach, Toptours, had "an excellent reputation".
    He said: "The drivers had arrived the night before and had rested during the day before departure. It seems that the law on [b][url=http://www.comelygirls.com/swimming costume][b] driving and rest periods has been respected."
    Both the drivers were among the dead.
    Valais police chief Christian Varone described the site as "a scene like a war".
    The European Parliament observed a minute's silence at noon.
