Recently we noticed that the 3D floor plans are easy to interpret for apartments of one or two rooms, but for larger ones, they require a certain amount of concentration on the part of a potential guest.
And concentration can be rarely expected from web users.
So, how to communicate the composition of the apartment in a quick and intuitive way?
One possible solution is our new “3D Room by Room Floor Plans”.
Here’s how they work:
…and so on.
Here there’s just a few pictures. See them in action in Adormo or Airbnb.
In a few weeks we’ll ask our guest whether they’ve been useful or not!
For years Booking.com was openly hated by almost all apartments owners.
When in 2012 we still didn’t work with them, I toured Eastern Europe to meet my historical hosts and I was blown away by the anger they felt for Booking.com who had recently entered the vacation rentals market.
When I asked:
“Since you hate them, why do you work with them at all?”.
They all replied:
The gap between Airbnb and their competitors is getting really, really big.
I mean, we knew they were good, that was clear since the beginning. But so much better? It’s mind blowing.
Maybe the problem is not that Airbnb is good. The really amazing thing is how bad the others are.
This wasn’t apparent a few years ago, in the way a Trabant owner in Berlin 1985 didn’t realize how good WV Golfs were in Munich at the same time.
Then the wall came down and they realized how bad Trabants were.
