The Story Behind Bookaview
Bookaview was founded in February 2012 while I was planning a romantic vacation with my girlfriend at the time.
"At the time" does not mean we broke up but quite the contrary. We are now married :)
Anyway, The girlfriend had a dream, a simple one. Since she was a little girl she wanted to go to Rome. Her favorite place in Rome (even she had never visited there) was the Colosseum. She always said: "I just want to sit and stare at the Colosseum".
So I started looking for hotels with a view of the Colosseum. That was not an easy task, I can tell you that. Even when I found one, I wasn’t sure if the hotel is really overlooking the Colosseum.
There was a chance that the description of the hotel sounded lovely but doesn’t match the reality. For example, many hotels in Paris say they have a view of the Eiffel Tower. You book the hotel and when you arrive you find out that if you look 45 degrees north-east from the hotel lobby, you can see the tip of the tower, only if it’s a bright day of course.
So I thought to myself: "There's gotta be a better way to find hotels with a views of famous places and to know which hotel really has a good view".
"Challenge accepted!" was my answer, you know, to myself.
I just started learning HTML and website builidng stuff so I was looking for a project. The combination of the lack of comfort finding hotels with views of the Colosseum and the ambition to start a new project have created Bookaview.com :)
Oh, and did I find a good hotel overlooking the Colosseum you ask? Well, no. We've ended up going to Paris :)
