1 Properties in MASTERINSOFT
A property can be a hotel, a hostel, a B&B, a holiday house, an apartment house, a campground, etc.
A property has one or more rooms. Rooms can but do not need to represent physical rooms, they are a way of splitting your property into separately bookable sections.
If you renting your property as a whole you still need to define one room which in your case represents your complete property.
2 Use of properties and rooms
Hotels, B&B´s and inns are usually set up as one property with a number of rooms. If you have several independent lodgings e.g. apartments or villas you can still set them up as rooms if it suits your marketing strategy. Each room (which can also be an apartment, house etc) can have its own pricing and booking rules.
Making different properties means each can have it’s own property booking page (if required with individual design). You can also use an agency booking page with advanced search functions (e.g. facilities, location) showing all properties.
If you are using the channel manager we advise to set the booking system up as similar as your booking channels. If your lodgings have different hotel codes for booking.com etc. then they must be setup as different properties in the system.
