The customer service alone makes this a wonderful product!

Hotello is without a doubt a great software that meets and even exceeds our needs. It's various features are really helpful at managing our establishment as a whole. It does require a little bit of practice to fully understand it and it's interface could be slightly more user friendly, but its customer service is by far one of the best we have ever experienced.

Pros

The customer service! Prompt, efficient, and friendly, it is by far one of the best!

Cons

The learning curve can be difficult.
It's different reports can be customized but there is no easy way to do so by ourselves.

Good for Hôtels with not a lot of meeting space

It is a well presented, easy to use and fun to work with Software for the room management. It lacks on the banquet management since the Platform looks like it was a "copy and paste" from the room Platform, without the adjustments needed for the banquets. If you have 5 and Under meeting space to manage, this software is perfect. If you have more than that, wait until they make serious changes on the Platform. I do love the software, but its not convenient enough to manage 18 meeting rooms.

Pros

The overall room management platform

Cons

The banquet Platform prevents me from effectively managing all my congress floor.

Easy to use and evolutive software for Hotelier

As my position of ecommerce, revenues and distribution manager, I am asked on a daily basis to manage the rates, the inventory and the numerous 3rd parties the Hotel works with. Hotello is a easy to use, evolution according the new trends and designed to manage Rates and Inventory easily.

Pros

Yield Management module is perfect to manage all rates, availabilities and restrictions for all rate plans, and for all channel managed rates.

The Marketing features is also extremely convenient for our sales team, for our markets scopes and for our emailing campaing.

Cons

The software would definitively gain in value if the Software would have a Rate Optimization System that would be able to recommand rates and inventory mangement based on : previous year performances, on the book forecasts, outliers, city compression demands, remaning demand, etc.

A great option for a more traditional PMS

Pros

It functioned as expected. A very mature product, so it's very stable, and has all the features to compete with Opera et al. Definitely a whole lot cheaper. If you're planning to use a server or workstation based PMS, there's really no reason not to consider Hotello.

Cons

Even though they now have a cloud based option, it's not natively cloud, a bit of a workaround.
Still a server based PMS that will forever be catching up to native cloud solutions.

Not enough integrations, especially to modern products. Reports were customize-able, but very difficult to do so. No drag and drop calendar.

Really nice to work with

I have been working in different hotels with different softwares and I think Hotello is one of the most «friendly» one I have been working with. It's easy to use, you can do a lot of tasks with it. We also have a software for our marina and our spa. It would actually perfect it there would be a way we could use Hotello for these spheres of our businessa as well.

Pros

It's easy to use. We can do a lot with it.

Cons

There is still updates to come for the banquet software. Hopefully that will correct the problems we have right now.

Perfect solution for busy people

Friendly use of Hotello makes life easy to train fast and efficiently new employees even if they don't have much computer knowledge.

Pros

Any action you have in mind, just look for the icon and click on it: it is done!

Cons

one thing is a little tricky is if you have someone staying for 2 weeks and on day 03rd you have to change room: the rate changes a little tricky but nothing major

Hotello used by Joanne (HCMQ)

I now use Hotello since 2 years (night audit shift). Before, I've worked with another software at an hotel for 2 1/2 years, and I really prefer yours.

Pros

The daily night audit is quite easy to do.
Intuitive software, the arrivals are quick to do.

Cons

When doing an arrival, the notes are popping twice. Once would be enough since we have to click a key to get it close.

When it's not crashing, it's a wonderful tool. It covers all required and necessary aspects of a hotel reservation and is very easy to adjust if need be.

Pros

Versatility

It crashes too often.
