Zerohotel is located at Cerro Alegre in Valparaíso, Chile, and boasts of a privileged location as it is within walking distance from the best restaurants and tourist attractions in town. The house was built in 1880 and despite its restoration, it still maintains the authentic spirit of Valparaiso. The décor invites you to discover the essence of Valparaiso while lending a comfortable home-like ambience. The hotel has 3 terraces with frontal bay view and 9 rooms; 4 with an open view of the Bay, and 5 with street or lateral view. The property also offers free Wi-Fi to its customers.
In the past, the hotel was using a legacy property management system that was not user-friendly and did not update the room availability automatically. The hotel faced the problem of overbooking since reservations from OTAs were manually added during the day, while the front desk ended up reserving rooms during the night. They also had to pay extra according to the number of computers on which the system was being used. These issues increased the complexities in managing the property, which made the hotel look for alternatives.
The management team was clear about what they were looking for in the new PMS - a user-friendly interface, integrated with OTAs so that online reservations could be done automatically, and paying just for the system regardless of the number of computers that would be connected to it. After taking a trial, they found Hotelogix to be the best fit.
"Hotelogix had what we were looking for: updating of bookings, checking the system in any laptop without any extra fee or hardware, creation of new rates and management of different OTAs (mainly Booking.com, Expedia and Splendia) from one site (SiteMinder). Now, we do not have to work separately with all OTAs. We are saving almost 100% time, thanks to it. All we have to do now with online reservations is simply check the bookings to prepare the rooms accordingly. No manual procedure is required."
