Hide adress to be shown for guests

Hello everyone,
I am new to booking.com. Recently, there was a guy who showed up at my address and said he wants to book a room at my place. He asked me for a discount since he is not registering through booking.com. He found my address from booking.com

I was surprised and worried if people keep coming like this on my door. Is there any way to hide the address and only show the approximate region to the guest without reservation?

Thank you

Hi Yawar Abbas

 

Your partner profile is incomplete, no listing link shown.

Yes this is already known. No response from BdC on it as of yet

 

Feature Request : Non Public Property Type Mask Location Address and Map Pin

 Please reply to this topic I already started for this .

 

The more partners who speak up will help bring it to the attention of the community team to feedback to management.

 


Kind Regards

I'm not sure what the problem is. Most people who provide accommodation are only too happy to have their addresses available. In fact we have an advertising budget as well as entries in phone books. You always get people who demand a discount whether or not they use Booking.com. If they have a Booking.com reservation they can always say, "Give us a discount or we'll give you a lousy review!" Our answer is simple. If someone is rude then they can go elsewhere.

a motel is not the same as a private residence :)

Hello,

 

Is hiding the exact address an option now?

I could not find one. We are a private residence and do not want to show the address until a reservation has been made.

Can anyone from the booking.com team action this, please??? Apartments are private residences and exposing the address in public is a security risk. Other platforms that allow for listing shared spaces and private residences DO NOT expose this information until booking is confirmed.

Hi all, in addition to the above links that BrookAve has shared, please send official feedback via the Feedback button in the extranet: you will find it at the bottom of every page. As BrookAve has mentioned, the more partners that share feedback (on any topic) the better for awareness and possible updates to the platform. 

 

Kind regards, 

Jarratt

Hi Jarrat, any updates on this please. Private residences should have an option to partially hide the address until the booking is confirmed. nLooking forward to hearing back!

hi Amber this has been addressed many times, there are zero plans by BdC to hide our addresses.
