Rating for "view from room"?

Hi Booking.com team,

As an owner of a rental apartment I wonder why "view from room" is a standard extra criterion for guests to rate our property. We do not advertise that we are renting out a property with a view. This is a down-town apartment on the first floor, so of course there is no view from room. The apartment is still bright with big windows so there is a lot of natural light - which would be a more appropriate general criterion. It is like having a balcony as a standard criterion for rating an accommodation.

Please remove it from the rating criteria.

View from room. Yes I prefer to have view from my room, from my balcony, from my boat window, from my airplane window etc. It’s obvious wherever we might be view is an extra criteria and that’s why we pay more for getting it. Ketill I fully understand your frustration. Booking.com has to make review questions more clear.

How about a setting within "view" where hosts could enter "no view" and this would automatically blank out the rating for view? ( it's either that or add brick-wall to the view choices which is soooooooo nice an option!!!)

This could be a work around for many aspects. e.g. Breakfast, if not booked via BDC, no option to rate. etc. (admittedly many would not fit this idea like the often-mentioned coffee category. )
