Filter Booking.com Search Results on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
Hello! You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to filter the search results in the Booking.com application on the iPhone 6.
To start, we should unlock our phone, which we can do by pressing the big Lock button on the right-hand side of the handset.
Alternatively, we can press the round Home button at the bottom of the phone.
This brings up the Lock screen.
Enter a passcode or just hold a finger onto the Home button at the bottom, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner.
This will take us to the Home screen. Everything is personalized in this example, so the Home screen may look a bit different than others.
We should now find the Booking.com application tile.
It is in the "Travel" folder in this example. The icon itself is dark blue with a big capital white "B" and a small lighter blue circle next to it.
We'll just tap the Booking.com icon once to bring up the main screen.
This is the first screen that we will be presented with in the Booking.com application because it immediately allows us to search for a place. We can search for another VisiHow video to be taken through the process to search for a place.
For now, we'll tap the "Show hotels" button with a number to go straight through to our search results.
In this example, we are looking at hotels in London, as it was previously selected as a location. If we do not like the results, and we want to be more specific, then we can use the bottom bar where we have three options. There are two large rectangles and a small square in the right corner.
We are going to tap the second option called "Filter" in the light blue bar at the bottom.
This will bring up a new window. Now, we have the option to choose exactly what we would our hotel to be like. The Booking.com application seems to have a lot more options than most other booking applications. Therefore, choosing filters is quite a long process.
For example, we can tap "Select stars".
By default, it is set to "Any stars". The check on the right-hand side in blue means that we have all of the results. The application also tells us on the left-hand side underneath "Any stars" how many results we will have. In this example, the "1 star" option only has 5 results, whereas "4 stars" has 97 results.
Let's tap "4 stars".
A blue check will appear.
We can choose more than one option as well if desired.
Let's tap "3 stars".
We can tap "Filters" in the top-left corner if we want to change more things.
Alternatively, we can tap "Show results" if that option was the only thing that we wanted to change.
The application will start searching again with our new filter.
Let's tap "Filters" to go to "Filters".
The application will show what we selected underneath "Select stars".
We can tap "Select price range".
We can tap and change the scroll sliders.
The price tends to increase or decrease in tens. The maximum price is ÃÂÃÂ£2,999 for two guests in this example. We can change the price to the one that suits us.
Again, we can tap "Show results" at the bottom if we are happy with everything in the filters.
Alternatively, we can tap "Filters" in the top-left corner to get back to the "Filters" screen.
Now, we can tap "Select hotel type".
Again, we select everything as we did with the star rating.
We can tap "Hotel" if we want just a hotel.
We change where the blue check goes.
Let's tap "Filters" to go back to "Filters".
We can tap "Select facilities".
Those are all sort of things the hotels have to offer that are more practical. There are various blue icons on the right-hand side that display what the option is. We have an "Airport shuttle" with a picture of an airplane. We have "Free WiFi" with the WiFi symbol of three arched bars. We have "Non-smoking rooms" with a picture of a cigarette, as well as "Restaurant" with a knife and fork icon, and so on.
What we definitely need to know is that if we go with children, we may want to tap "Family rooms".
A blue check will appear next to the "Family rooms" icon.
If we want WiFi, we should tap "Free WiFi".
There will be a blue check added.
If we want parking, we tap "Parking".
This will add a blue check.
We can continue choosing any of the filters we wish.
Then, we can go back to "Filters" by tapping "Filters" on the left-hand side.
We can tap "Select district".
This is the area in which we would like to be. It is quite limited in this example, as we have already put in some other filters. Judging by the other filters, the application tells us that there aren't any hotels in Covent Garden that match what we want so far. There is one in Fulham, one in Hampstead, and one in Kings Cross St. Pancras.
For example, let's tap "Shepherds Bush".
That is one result. Now, there is only one result, and if we are going to add more filters now, it will not make any difference because that one hotel is all from what we are choosing.
Let's tap "Select district" again.
Let's tap "Any district" for now.
We are going to tap "Select review score".
That is how other people are reviewing the hotel.
We can tap and drag the slider bar to drag the dot and choose the minimum score.
We can drag the slider to "Any review score".
The slider will have no blue line.
We can select the minimum score of 8.
We tap "Filters" in the top-left corner for "Filters" again.
The filter list is quite extensive, so we should be able to find exactly what we want by doing the filter process.
We can tap "Check-in time".
Maybe our flight comes at a difficult time, and we want to make sure that we can check in.
Let's drag the slider to the "Check-in from 3 pm to midnight" position.
We just move the blue bar accordingly.
Let's tap "Filters" to go back to "Filters".
We can see all of the things that we've selected are coming up underneath the title on the left-hand side.
Let's tap "Pets allowed".
A window pops up that says that there are no hotel matches.
We can just tap "Yes" for now so that the green check appears on the right-hand side across from the "Pets allowed" option.
This will not take us to a new window because we tapped "Yes" to the message telling us about no hotels available.
We can just tap "Pets allowed" again to remove the check and not allow pets, if desired.
We can tap on "Facilities for disabled guests".
It has a circle icon next to it, which will fill in green if we select the filter.
We can tap "Facilities for disabled guests" again to get rid of the check for now.
"Free WiFi" has already been selected by us. Many people want free WiFi. We can tap it to get rid of it.
We can tap "Hotel theme".
The application will list things like "Family", "Adventure", "Castle", "Budget / backpacker", etc. We'll leave it at "Any theme".
We tap "Filters" to go back.
Finally, we can tap "No credit card required" option to select it.
We'll tap "Yes" to close the warning window.
We can tap "No credit card required" again to remove the check.
It will mean that we should pay by our credit card.
When we are happy with the filters in this section, we can simply tap "Show results".
Alternatively, we can tap "Reset all filters" if we accidentally did something, and we want to start from the beginning again.
Let's just tap "Show results" in the bottom blue bar for now.
In this example, the choice is not big. We have about 19 hotels. The application managed to find something even with very specific filters.
We can scroll through the results to choose the one that suits us.
We can tap the white arrow in the top-left corner to go back to the main menu.
Tap the white arrow in the top-left corner again to go back to the main menu.
We are back to the main search screen.
