Adding and/or Managing Your Rooms
NOTE: Hotel Profile and Rooms are managed separately:
- HOTEL PROFILE: (highlighted in yellow in the image below) – this is where you add the Hotel Address, General Hotel Amenities (Restaurant, Swimming Pool etc) and General Hotel Images. This information represents the hotel only, so you can add a little bit of history about your hotel and its local area etc.
- HOTEL ROOMS: (highlighted in turquoise in the image below) – this is where you configure individual ROOM TYPES and assign each room type its own Amenities, Images etc.
Adding rooms is very simple, it won’t take you more than 5-10 minutes. Remember that rooms are added by Room Category. For example, if you have 3 Room Types: Executive, Double and Twin; you only need to add 3 rooms types: Executive Double and Twin. On Accommodation > Hotel menu please click on New Room Type (circled in red in the image below).
If you’re only increasing the number of rooms for the same room type, you can do this by clicking on the number within Number of Rooms column instead (circled in yellow in the image below). For example, if you have 2 Executive rooms, you don’t need to add “Executive” twice- instead you only need to add more rooms to this room type by clicking on the number withing Number of Rooms or Edit > General Configuration > Update Rooms.
You can also increase the number of rooms of the same category available by going into edit accommodation in General Configuration page/tab > Number of Rooms:
NOTE: when increasing Number of Rooms available for the same category, you will have to give each room a name (it can be anything like: “First Floor Double Room“, or simply: “Room 101″). This is due to the Gomingo planning feature, as every room added will be visible in the Planning feature.
Here you can add room Name or number and save to add it to the list which will increase the number of rooms available for this Room Category.
NOTE: this is only inventory tracking mechanism and room names from here will be pulled into Planning, where you will be able to see each room you created grouped under Room Category on the planning as per below image.
As always if you have any more questions or need help setting up your rooms please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy hosting with Gomingo!
