Listing capacity capped at 4 persons when my apartment can hold 5.

 Hi guys,

I realize there are already questions like mine, but I think none of them got a proper answer.

In my property layout it shows standard occupancy: 5 adults. On booking.com it shows only 4 persons.

Maybe booking.com is using a different source for gathering standard occupancy?

I am new here and I have to admit - coming from ABB - layout is not really intuitive - but I guess I get used to it :).

Thanks Chris

Depends where you start. My first experience of ABB was a a disaster! I found their site about as logical as reading a newspaper underwater. Back then they had very limited currencies, ours not included. Anyway things have moved on so I'm going to give them another try. Their site still seems out of whack to me but hey-ho.

Sorry, I did go off track a bit, it's just that I've been fighting with the ABB site and find it really frustrating coming from an OTA site initiation.

I'm not familiar with higher occupancy set up but there was a post a while back where the poster simply input the info. contrary to BDC logic.

Could it be something like the system is expecting 5,4,3,2,1 - X where you put 1,2,3,4, + X and it can't cope or reverses the logic. It was for the other guy.

Hopefully a seasoned user with higher occupancy will dive in with an informed answer.

In Property tab. You can edit numberof guests to 5. This should fix it.

Thanks for your answer.

What I did: I went to Property tab --> Property Layout --> edit.

From there: Bed options: how many guests can stay in this room? 5

On booking.com it still shows 4. I searched for 5 adults, my apartment does not show up in the search results. Searching for 4 adults I show up.

Maybe I missing something.

Hi Christian,

I have the same problem. Did you find a way to change the capacity?
