You can set your check-in dates, duration of stay, the total number of guests and number of rooms. If all necessary details needed are provided, the app will then provide you information about the hotel, its main facilities, location map, establishments near the hotel, descriptions, and policy. You may also check and see the ratings and reviews from previous guests if you are keen on this type of information.
At the bottom of the hotel information page is the basic room type and its current price offered on the Traveloka app. You can expand to more options if you swipe up the screen. Once you have selected a specific room, you are then required to fill in your personal details and contact information. A space to type in a special request is also available if you have one.
Along with the contact details are the information of your check-in and check-out dates, room types and other information like cancellation processes, refunds, etc. When you choose to continue, you are presented with the review page of all the information you provided.
