Setting up your listing’s room arrangement helps your guests choose a desired room to book, thus making their stay more comfortable and suitable to their needs. You can list the "room types" and which bed types are included in every “bedroom”.

In the context of a listing's room arrangement, “room types” refer to the composing rooms or spaces inside a listing. These room types can be, for example, bedrooms, living rooms, and bathrooms. Configuring these rooms and spaces is described in this article.

In addition, a listing's "room type" (or "unit type") as a whole, refers to the unit's sleeping arrangement, such as a "suit", "double", "triple", "standard room", studio, etc. Setting the listing's room type is only required for complexes connected to Booking.com. You can select the room type in the listing's Property page > Location & details > Property details:

Follow the instructions below to set or change your listing’s room arrangement.

Pilot users: 

  • For listings connected to Airbnb or the Booking Engine (Booking Website for Lite users), you can specify which rooms are shared and which are private. When a room is marked as a “shared room”, you cannot add a full/half bathroom room type to it.
  • You can assign photos to rooms, and the photos will be synced to Airbnb, creating a photo tour section in the Airbnb listing page.
  • Setting the number of bathrooms in a listing via the “Location & details” is no longer possible. Add the listing's "Bathroom" room types using the instructions below. 
  • A bed cannot be added to a full/half-bathroom room type.
