The ZERO Hotels group uses Cloudbeds to enhance operational efficiency and guest experiences, while expanding their property portfolio and reducing staff training times.
Why it matters: The ZERO Hotels are a unique collection of properties across Portugal that offer guests an unparalleled lodging experience. They currently have three properties, with an additional four coming soon. Their ‘ZERO Box Lodge’ is the most popular offering, inspired by Japanese capsule hotels where guests stay in minimalistic wooden boxes equipped with a private bathroom in a shared dorm. Post-pandemic, the Porto property decided to switch from their previous property management system to Cloudbeds.
  • Knowing that The ZERO Hotels would be expanding across Portugal, General Manager at The ZERO Box Lodge Porto knew that they would need a system that was easy to use and provided the freedom to experiment with rate plans and promotions to drive more direct bookings.

Top 3 Core Objectives: A platform to support their growth plans
  • Create a guest-centric experience: Cloudbeds’ easy-to-use interface was quickly adopted by the team and has improved the overall guest experience.

  • Automated the pricing strategy: Cloudbeds’ pricing intelligence engine (PIE) is being used across The ZERO Hotels’ properties to automate pricing strategies and monitor competitor and market trends.

  • Reduce training times: The switch to Cloudbeds has significantly reduced the time that The ZERO Hotels spends training new staff as the simple layout and user interface is easy to understand and extremely user-friendly. All their staff members are enrolled in Cloudbeds University and have access to hundreds of training courses to improve their knowledge of the system and troubleshoot any roadblocks.
