As an owner of one or more self-catering apartments, we understand the fierce competition you face from city centre hotels and other self-service businesses. At Recommended Hotels we provide a targeted marketing service that systematically improves your online visibility on the online booking sites (the OTAs). Our service enables you to increase the profitability of your apartments by increasing your number of long-term guests and helping you corner the lucrative business travel market.
How we Help
In an age where the majority of self-catering apartment bookings are made online through Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), we focus on optimising your presence on the comparison sites and OTA’s for maximum visibility. The fact is that the majority of guest will not look past the first few listings on a booking site before making a decision, so our goal is to get you on that front page and keep you there. However, Recommended Hotels offers far more than a marketing service. We have an advanced channel management system that takes care of every element of the OTA’s on your behalf, and a knowledgeable team who worked tirelessly to optimise your listings seeking to get more bookings.
- Generate more revenue from your self-catering apartments
- Improve the quality of your online presence
- Increase your occupancy during weekdays and weekends
- Stay one step ahead of your competitors
Recommended Hotels have a central hub that allows you to manage reservations and payment details in real-time, optimise the OTAs and booking site listings from one place and improve the online profile of your apartments.
But more than that, we have a team of experts that will work closely with you to achieve more bookings, a higher occupancy rate and increased revenue for you.
Reasons to choose us
There are a number of ways in which our team can help you increase your returns from your self-service investment:
- Worried about your apartments sitting empty over the weekend? We can use the OTA’s to help you boost your weekend occupancy with private guests, as well as keeping your apartments full of long-term business travellers during the week.
- We can set you up with a Global Distribution System (GDS) to help you make inroads into the corporate market, giving you an edge over competing apartment businesses who do not always think to exploit this market.
- Potentially reduce your marketing expenditure by making the most of the tools and visibility offered by the OTAs, reducing your need to invest in your own website.

Frequently asked questions
What are your fees?
We have designed our Recommended Hotels service to be accessible and competitively priced independent apartment owners. We don’t charge any fixed fees for our service. You only pay a commission on the uplift of new bookings. So if our service doesn’t bring you in any additional bookings then you won’t pay anything. We only start charging you a small commission when we start delivering visible results for you.
What will happen to our current booking system?
Our service is designed to help you get more bookings by managing the OTAs on your behalf. We have a bespoke system which you can access at any time and which is highly user-friendly. However, we do not require you to change your current booking systems. Instead, we have built our service to integrate seamlessly with whatever databases and systems you currently use. The idea is to make increasing your bookings are a simple and easy process, not to complicate matters!
