it's expected to be in the url
said it's https://www.booking.com/hotel/$1.html
$1 is the id

but :

1) for https://www.booking.com/hotel/ro/cabana-fluturica
wikipedia rule fail : https://www.booking.com/hotel/$1.html
this url redirect to the same + .html + garbage.
So by hand, you can find the id in this case.
but I have a big doubt that editors implement this kind of thing.
so mapper 'll send full url to osm

2) for a id currently in osm : 1081613
the url https://www.booking.com/hotel/1081613.html is not a valid one.
if the contributor check his object on osm, no way to test it unless
someone was implementing tag2link for osm.org, which is currently not
the case.
