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
Planigo.de is a leading European hotel booking website owned by the QCNS Group, and built by system integrator Optaros.
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.

I really love Magento since it is very easy to setup and very professional looking. I never thought you could make it into a hotel booking site but for a webshop its perfect. Not to mention that it’s free as well.

I was recently looking into Magento for some ecommerce sites and it seems to be one of if not the best OS solution. The other one that looked pretty promising was opencart. Had any experience with this one?

I am new to Magento and i believe it has a potential. But creating a professional looking hotel booking website, thats amazing.
This is a really nice work with Magento.
I haven’t used Magento. Any thoughts on advantages over Joomla and Drupal?
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.
Wow! That is Amazing! The amount of time spent customizing that thing must have been off the charts. Gonna have to share this one around the office.

Thank you for the information you provide, as well as a beautiful website.
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.
