Booking.com is a listing site that grew by catering to hotels and other multi-unit rental properties. Hostfully initially provided an integration that supported single-unit properties (villas, houses, apartments etc), and now also supports hotels and multi-unit properties.
The following steps outline the setup process:
Step 1: Set up parent-child relationships on Hostfully
Defining the relationship between booking entities is the first step. We covered the step in this article "Managing calendars for a house and its sub-units", so please review this first. The one difference in this case is that you'll have to set up the parent unit as a non-bookable entity (as in most cases, a whole hotel is not an entity which can be booked):
Once you units are set up with the parent-children relationship, they will show the following way on your Booking.com channel page. To get started, just toggle the on/off button for this hotel (or rental entity with a parent-children scheme):
Step 2: Enable the synchronization with Booking.com
Pre-requisite: enable Hostfully as your Channel Manager. Please see the following article on getting this set up.
Once you enable the hotel sync on the page, you'll see the pop-up window below. Enter the Hotel ID provided by Booking.com for your hotel, and click Connect:
Step 3: Mapping each sub-unit
The Hotel entity is mapped, now it's necessary to map each of the sub-units. This is what the units should look like on Booking.com :
On Hostfully, just start toggling each sub-unit to ON:
Clicking the toggle will open the following pop-up window, where you will have to select the corresponding sub-unit ID on Booking.com, and click Connect to activate the mapping. Each unit needs to have it's own room, the same room should not be used twice. If you need to create a new room, you can do so by selecting that option in the dropdown shown below.
From that point on, your sub-units will be synchronized with Booking.com's units and your calendar/prices/property data will automatically synchronize.
