Nepal is a growing tourist destination, there has been a good rise in the number of hotels and resorts in Nepal and the tourist sector is broadening thus we have chosen this sector to do our project and we are making Hotel Reservation System. The rapid development and commercialization of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for the travel and tourism industry have prompted hotels and other enterprises in this sector to increasingly adopt these technologies. The ICT-based products and processes help the hotels to enhance operating efficiency, improve the service experience as well as provide a means to access markets on a global basis. ICTs were used in the hotel industry since the late seventies in the form of Computerized Reservation systems and Global distribution systems.
2. Overview of Hotel Reservation System
Hotel Reservation System has all the dynamic versatile features required to run hotels, motels, and guest house businesses. Hotel Reservation System offers an operational integration between reservations, guest history, reception/ front desk, Sales Ledger, Accounting, and Reporting modules. The software has the facility to generate a report for analyzing your booking, checking, and checkout status.
Hotel Reservation System is the best suit for managing your resource in a very simple but effective manner with minimal effort or time so that it increases your revenue. Hotel Reservation System helps you to manage small to medium size boutiques, hotels, Inns, cottages, Beds, campgrounds and cabins, and Breakfasts. A hotel management or booking system is designed to help you manage your booking and use the gathered data in reports to help analyze your marketing and financial results. Hotel Booking software is a complete software suite consisting of integrated modules for various aspects of hotel management.
3. Main Features:
- Save the client’s information into the database prior to Booking or Check-in.
- Customize the type of Hotel rooms with prices.
- Booking for the customer for a specific date with advance payment.
- Check-in into the hotel for the duration.
- Check out from the hotel after payment operation.
- Each time make a reservation, the room status is updated and the customer details are added to your hotel database.
- The better option for expensive CRM.
- This system can be used by all of the hotels.
- This project is web-based and is using PHP and Mysql with other web technology.
The following sites are providing an online hotel booking system.
4. Phases for Project Development
In Nepal, there are more than 1000 hotels that are gaining their international customers but the online booking system is implemented by some renowned hotels only so the hotel reservation system is one of the projects that will be required in the Nepali tourist sector so we have chosen it.
Google Maps are also not in use and we are implementing it which will help the customer to find out the location of the hotel.
Customer Relationship Management is also established and we are maintaining it which will help to find out the customer repository.
There are many problems with the existing hotel reservation system in Nepal and the problems are stated in the problem analysis. It is economically feasible as we are making this for the partial fulfillment of the BCIS program and is operationally feasible as we are making this system by removing the threats and weaknesses of existing systems as well as it is technologically feasible as we are using open source coding with the use of PHP and MySql.
In Project Analysis we collect data from different documents, manuals, and sites for the collection of the data we have interviewed different online booking use as well as the owners of the hotel.

- Hotels Manager
– Hotels – The administrator can manage hotels that will appear on the site with the hotel name, description, address, phone, and fax.

- Static Pages – Here the administrator can edit the content of the static pages on the site for each language: Area Information Page, Rooms Page…
With the use of programming languages, the system design is implemented to make the HRIS
The code that we will use will be tested and errors are debugged
