There are lots of options out there when it comes to vacation rental management solutions. Hospitable.com (ex. Smartbnb) and Smoobu are popular platforms among hosts and property managers who want to be more efficient when managing their listings on Airbnb, Vrbo, and Booking.com. Here we compare Hospitable.com vs. Smoobu to help you see how they differ in features, functionality, integrations, pricing, and more.
Both platforms can help you ensure that all your bookings are automatically synced across multiple channels, so you don’t have to worry about double bookings and manually updating prices. They come with reporting features and iCal support, allow sending team reminders via email and SMS and manual reservations, and have integrations with smart pricing tools and smart locks.
Hospitable.com automates virtually all aspects of interacting with guests online. It allows hosts to adjust messages based on special conditions and offer guests an extended stay based on availability. Its system uses AI to detect guests’ questions on 20+ topics and responds automatically. Smoobu also allows you to send automatic messages to your guests, but this software lacks these advanced messaging features.
Hospitable.com users mention they find the setup speed and the ease of use outstanding. New users can expect to get started within an hour and get quick support at any time.
