Jomres features - Guests can book specific rooms

Jomres natively offers functionality that allows guests to select specific rooms during the booking process. This can be especially useful for boutique or niche business that want to give their guests a more personalized experience.

How it works

Unlike most OTAs that keep an inventory of a number of rooms of a given type available or otherwise, Jomres get much more involved. When you create a property in Jomres that rents out rooms, you create actual rooms in the system that mirror your real-life property. You can add images, features and text that's unique to that room, note it's floor number and the room number on the door.

In Property Management > Settings > Property Configuration click on the Booking Form tab. Make sure that the Rooms List style is set to Classic, and click Save.

Next, go to Settings > Room Features and create any features that you think that guests will be interested in, such as it's view of the pool or that it's on the ground floor. Whatever you think makes the room special for your guests.

When you've created room features, go to Settings > Media Centre and upload images for those features, and the rooms you have created.

Once you've done that, you can visit the booking form and see that, not only can guests choose specific rooms but they can also filter rooms based on room features.

Wait, there's more!

You can create Extras to be sold during the booking process, such as flowers on arrival. Just like the room features, create the Extras then upload some images in the Media Centre. These extras can be available to all rooms, or just rooms of a specific type and they can be configured to be available at any time, or only during specific dates. Different Extras can be charged according to a number of different charging models such as Per booking, or per person per day.


Overall, Jomres is a great booking system for hotels that want to offer their guests a more personalized experience. With Jomres, you can easily manage your bookings and keep track of which rooms are available at any given time. You can also add extra services and amenities to your bookings, such as airport transfers or breakfast. If you're looking for a booking system that will make your life easier, then Jomres is definitely worth considering.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was released as a commercial project. Since then Jomres has become the world's oldest online booking plugin for any PHP CMS. It has been used in Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 2.5, 3 & 4 and WordPress 4, 5 & 6.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. Between 2010 and 2018 he was an integral part of the project and made many significant contributions.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and Vince have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous Valentina Template Override Package.
