Guesty is a solution for property management professionals. Unlike the other two, it has complex finance features like revenue management. Essentially, it’s the enterprise-class software that comes with respective price and setup complexity. Though, if you’re managing a portfolio of 100+ properties and need an all-in-one property management solution, Guesty is worth considering.

Lodgify is a good option for individual hosts who are good with numbers and want to dive deep into detail. On top of automation features, Lodgify offers rather detailed accounting and reporting. Once, with the help of a support team, you get to learn how the system operates, it offers solid performance. Like Guesty, it will provide communication automation, channel management, direct booking website builder, and team management.

Hospitable is the system that will be up and running 15 minutes after you sign-up. Even though it offers the most advanced communication automation with vast customization opportunities, it comes with all the necessary templates from the box. It will protect you from double bookings, sync pricing and availability, send tasks to your team, and offer a beautiful and simple direct booking website builder.
