You can respond to guest reviews via the Extranet or Pulse app. Your responses are reviewed by our team before they’re published.

General tips for responding to guest reviews

  • Make your message as personal as possible to show you take the time for your guests.
  • A polite and courteous reply makes you look positive and professional, especially when responding to a negative review.
  • Keep your responses short and to the point, and make sure what you write is true and accurate.
  • Write original responses to your guests. Be specific to make your responses more genuine.
  • A genuine response with a positive attitude can turn a negative review around and can be especially impactful for potential guests reading the reviews.
  • People who’ve had a negative experience may just want to be heard. Acknowledge their negative experience and, if possible, let them know what you’re doing to improve. This shows them—as well as other potential guests—that you take your guests seriously and listen to their feedback.
  • Read our content guidelines available here to better understand our content moderation rules. Our guidelines apply to replies and reviews, keeping our platform appropriate for a global audience.
