Introduction

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.

Functionality
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.
Support
Viet Vu is pretty prompt, usually within 24 hours during the working week. His English is very good too. I contact him often, sorry :)
Documentation
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
Functionality
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
Support
Great as always
Documentation
Many new tutorials are added
I used this to: multiple hotel websites
Functionality
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
Support
This is a challenge, dont expect very quick answer and only getting answer on workdays, they are quite strict with working hours.
Documentation
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.
