The fresh content can be found by clicking a new “homestays” filter that has appeared on the left rail of Booking.com. The homestay filter option appears under “Property type” after a customer has run a hotel search and is looking to refine the results.
Booking.com is testing a design that makes pictures of properties much bigger and that has more intuitive drop-down menus and less visual clutter.
“Homestays” is now a category that Booking.com users can filter on. It’s distinct from “Apartments,” “Holiday homes,” “Villas,” “Guest houses”, “Bed and breakfasts,” “Hotels (with kitchen),” and “Hostels.” Booking.com has not officially announced this new category.
