Booking, Booking & Reservations

Solidres is a hotel booking extension for Joomla! CMS. Solidres itself is a free extension and you can download, install and use it in unlimited sites as you wish. Also, Solidres follows Joomla coding standard (MVC structure) therefore customizing Solidres or developing template for Solidres is a pleasant task for all Joomla developers/designers. Although Solidres was designed to support hotel (room-based) booking, it can still be used for other type of booking businesses like apartment/villas booking, B&B, guest house, camp site, we can even see some users who use Solidres for cat boarding or 3G USB booking.

Doet wat het moet doen. Een flexibele reserverings module op je website die je kunt koppelen aan een kanaal manager.
Ease of use
Gemakkelijk te gebruiken met een prima handleiding.

Onwards and Upwards

Posted on 31 August 2018
Generally very very good. It's still a work in progress, but what isn't? It has come on leaps and bounds since I started using it in 2014.
Ease of use
The location of options is probably the most confusing thing, because there are so many of them in different areas. But no real problems.
Viet Vu is pretty prompt, usually within 24 hours during the working week. His English is very good too. I contact him often, sorry :)
Excellent, comprehensive and understandable. (Good forum response too)
I used this to: Our guesthouse website initially, and have just about completed our tour website using Solidres' new Experiences part of the system - it's very good, and his patience with my questions is commendable. We are going to subscribe to the Developer plan soon, which will save costs too
Compare to what we had 3 years ago, it is really mature a lot now!!!
Ease of use
Still the best in this aspect, easy to use and configure
Great as always
Many new tutorials are added
I used this to: multiple hotel websites
If you don't decorate joomla with many other craps, solidres is more than enough to run a hotel booking engine and quite fast action
Ease of use
If you are a hotelier it is very easy and functional. the support feedbacks are very short sometimes you dont understand what to do
This is a challenge, dont expect very quick answer and only getting answer on workdays, they are quite strict with working hours.
Good enough, but some details not exist at all, for example there is housekeeping module but you are discovering by coincidence
I used this to: To run a small hotel with 150 rooms.

best in class

Solidres is the best comparing to others in the same category. The fact is that it is being developed actively is very important for us
Ease of use
the overall organization is very well done, easy to understand the work flow
well done
great but not yet cover all functionality
I used this to: hospitality and travel industry

The best

Posted on 20 July 2018
No similar Joomla extensions could offer the same capacity like Solidres
Ease of use
It is quite easy to use, UI is easy to understand, unlike some overly complicated nonsense extensions that I tried
Best support we've ever received from a Joomla developer!
Very good
It is working very well for us as our main online booking system
Ease of use
For basic setup it is quite suitable for normal Joomla users like us
It's good
Great with tutorial and screenshots that guide us well
I used this to: use along side with Joomla to build many booking engine sites, very satisfied with Solidres!

beautiful and solid

Posted on 25 June 2018
it has a beautiful UI, multiple booking layout to choose and in the underground is a very solid code base
Ease of use
an average joomla users can get started within several hours
very helpful and accurate
they provide a good collection of tutorials and how-to
From hotel to apartment and other room based bookings, they are all covered by Solidres, very well developed, code is well written
Ease of use
we've tried other components and Solidres is the best in term of the ease of use, no nonsense stuffs like other components
the developers are very good friend!
I used this to: many J! sites that takes online bookings

This sucks!

Posted on 11 June 2018
decent but very lacking
I used this to: NOT Deleted it from the Joomla website. This is really a horrible system!
Owner's reply: Hi,

Thank you for your review.

Could you explain more about "Horrible functionality."? Did you actually use the product? Because if you actually use our product, your review will be clearer than this.

You said "I spent 3 days trying to figure this pathetic excuse of an extension/component out and have given up. I have been a full-time webmaster for", we are not sure why did you give up so easily because we have a community forum and our team also provide support for free users, but look like we did not see your posts in our forum asking for help, if you did post in our forum, could you provide an URL?

You also said "non-existent for their free version. You can't even ask a forum question!", we have a community forum that everyone (including free users) can ask questions, we are wondering if you actually use our product or just try to make a vague review?
