Verified case study Hotel Tech Report has reached out to hoteliers at Hotel Oderberger to verify this case study.
Case study header image
Hotel Oderberger Berlin opened its doors in 2016, but it has a long and fascinating history. It used to be a historic indoor swimming hall dating back to 1902. Today it continues as a hotel, the pool being open both to hotel guests and the public (though to the latter only by appointment). Hotel Oderberger Berlin used to rely on a PMS that did not offer the integration of a channel manager. Tini Diekmann, Sales and Revenue Manager as well as Deputy Hotel Manager of Hotel Oderberger Berlin needed to manually handle direct sales over the property’s website as well as four other online channels.
Why it matters: The property decided to switch the PMS into Mews, and go with SiteMinder by recommendation. Tini is impressed by the user-friendliness of the platform.
  • Soon after the new platform was implemented: “Onboarding was quite an involved process, particularly because we have many different room types, but thanks to the great support we received from SiteMinder, everything was set up after about a week.”

Top 3 Core Objectives: Hotel Oderberger is looking for a technology solution with seamless integration across platforms, bringing in more bookings, and working flexibly.
  • Seamless integration: The property is in need of a platform that allows seamless integration between PMS and Channel Manager, which allows them to save more time at work.

  • More bookings: Hotel Oderberger also aspires to maximise their bookings and occupancy, thus selling the most rooms possible and avoiding over-booking has always been their goal.

  • More flexibility: Tini is happy to work with a platform that is easy to connect with any channels and with new channels to test.

I took one look at the platform and loved it right away."
