Hotel Booking Website built on Magento

Not sure how many of you follow the Magento blog but this article caught my eye the other day – Hotel Booking Platform Assembled with Magento is a leading European hotel booking website owned by the QCNS Group, and built by system integrator Optaros. Berlin Hotels

The project required significant modifications to the Magento Commerce system, and currently contains more than 60,000 hotels with real time pricing and availability provided through QCNS’ Quad booking engine.  The site is also built with a Content Management System (CMS) and flexible backend interface for easy administration and marketing.

Magento does have CMS functionality similar to Drupal and Joomla, but it’s first and foremost an e-commerce app, and that is what it does best. If you’re looking for a dedicated/hardcore CMS then you will most likely want to stick with Joomla/Drupal, as that’s what they’ve been designed to do.

There are a lot of very large, well known, companies migrating over to the Magento Commerce Platform. The Magento Community Edition is already feature packed, but if there are large companies wanting features, my hope is that the features will be integrated in to the Enterprise version first and then filter down to the Community version shortly after.

Thanks for the info. I’ve never worked with Magento but I know the incredible possibilities of this software. I did not know that could be used as a booking engine and is a great opportunity.

Interesting to see this, thanks. I wouldn’t even have thought of this – hotel booking really isn’t “classic” ecommerce in many ways. Curious to know how much customization went into it.
