We are excited to announce a new feature on Orbirental. We’ve partnered with Hostfully to offer you beautiful free digital guidebooks for your guests that you can make in just few minutes.

Hostfully guidebooks include local, personalized recommendations and essential listing information so you can provide a complete manual for each of your properties – without any headaches. Easily include directions to the listing, check-in and check-out information, and other important details like the wifi password.

You send your guests a link, and they can see it on any device without downloading an app. You can also print a version for your guests with any standard color printer.

Here’s how to activate your Hostfully guidebooks:


1. Enable the switch on the Integrations page.

Turn on the Hostfully guidebook feature on the Integrations page to get started.


2. Go to your property page to start editing guidebook

Once you are on your property page (1), scroll all the way down, and click on the link that says “edit my guidebook” button.

3. Check and start editing your Hostfully guidebook

Add the essential information of your listing: check-in, check-out, wifi password, directions to your listing, and your welcoming message. You can edit on your mobile phone too.


4. Add local recommendations to personalize your guests’ experience

Click on the Recommendations tab and start adding your favorite coffee shop, grocery store, and restaurant. By adding your neighborhood favorite spots, your guests will have an ultimate local experience.


5. Easily share your guidebook with one link!

  • Okay… this is awesome!
    Been pondering both Hostfully and something like Orbirental for awhile. One thing that holds me back from signing up for services is that there are so many one-trick-pony services out there, that I don’t really want to manage them all separately (feels like I’m just shifting my time vs. saving it). With you guys integrating like this, I might just have to make this happen now!
    Thanks for pushing forward with integrations like this – seems super useful!

    • Orbirental says:

      Hi Tyler, thank you so much for your comments. Yes, the core value proposition of the Orbirental platform is that we provide a deep integration with many top-notch technologies that can be leverage directly in your business environment. In many cases, the integrations even allow services to interconnect through Orbirental. For example, one one hand, many dynamic pricing technologies are integrated via the Orbirental open API, and many channel managers as well: now you can have those dynamic prices not only be available on Orbirental and used on your website through our dynamic widgets, but also have them spread to over 60 distribution channels integrated to Orbirental. As such, Orbirental acts as a “service bus”, allowing different third party technologies to be connected for the benefit of our users.

      • Any plans to integrate with an integration platform like Zapier or Integromat? That’s what we’re waiting on to pull the trigger. That way, we don’t have to wait on our PMS software to integrate with XYZ platform. Once it’s integrated with Zapier, for example, we’re integrated with thousands of apps and services by default.
