GuestCentrix Hostel.Web has been selected by Australia’s first Capsule Hotel to power its operations when it opens in January 2017.
The Capsule Hotel will span three floors above Hungry Jacks on the corner of George Street & Liverpool Streets in the heart of Sydney. The premises for many years was the location of the iconic Bar Century which was popular with local workers, backpackers and students since the 1940’s. The bar closed its doors for the final time early in 2016 awaiting it’s exciting transformation.
Walter Yao, Director The Capsule Hotel remarks: “We will be targeting solo travellers who have outgrown the backpacker accommodation options available and also guests who will be happy to pay for the extra privacy, peace and quiet the capsules will provide”
“We wanted a modern, best in class hotel software to manage our new cutting edge hotel product.GuestCentrix Hostel.Web cloud based solution will allow us to train staff quickly so we can provide excellent customer service to our guests that we look forward to welcoming in the New Year.”
Duncan Waterman, Director of Sales at CMS Hospitality said, “The Capsule Hotel will be an outstanding addition to the already great budget accommodation scene here in Sydney. We are proud that they have chosen GuestCentrix to optimise their booking mix, drive their marketing and streamline their operations”
“We know that the best Sydney and Australian & NZ hostels have extremely high occupancy rates almost the full 12 months of the year. The Capsule Hotel as a new product in the market will be in high demand when it opens so they will be able to use GuestCentrix to get the maximum revenue per capsule bed available when they do open for business”
“We are looking forward to working closely in partnership with Walter and his team helping them to use the cloud based GuestCentrix property management system to initially to distribute their availability online and then welcome their guests.”
The Capsule Hotel joins a number leading Australian and NZ hostels who have implemented GuestCentrix Hostel.Web in recent months including; Bondi’s Noah’s Backpackers, Home Backpackers (also in Sydney), Aussitel Backpackers Coffs Harbour, Discovery Melbourne, Byron Bay Beach Hostel and Sir Cedrics Accommodation Based in NZ.
