Before You Connect

  1. Have your property already created and setup on Booking.com

  2. Be sure your property's rooms are single bookable units. (ex. 2 apartments in the same building). We do not support hotel like operations for which the inventory for a room type is greater than 1. To find out more click here.

  3. Click on Rates & Availability > Open/Close Rooms, be sure that "Open" is selected > then Save.

  4. Remove all of the rates plan you have in place by clicking Rates & Availability > Rate Plans.

  5. Add a new rate plan back, making sure it only has a single guest rate (not one that is based on the number of guests), as is detailed here.

Once this is done, you will be able to connect to Hospitable.com!

  1. Find the "[ACTION REQUIRED]" email to finish the setup of your property

  2. Follow the instructions in the email

  3. Once completed, you will be able to receive messages that are sent from guests from that point in time onward. Old messages will only be received if there is new activity within the conversation.
