Get "Facts" about your accommodation

Since Aug. 2016 we collect more structured meta data about accommodations, we call them "Facts". Facts are available through our API and can be displayed on your website. Facts also optimize your site for search engines.

In this guide, we'll explain you how to get and make use of "Facts"

Requirements

Currently, we only provide facts for Apartments. "Facts" is a well-defined data structure attached to Accommodation objects, which you retrieve with GET /accommodations.

This is an example of a facts object for "Les Bouleaux" Apartment in Nendaz:

{
"type": "apartment",
"name" : {
"de": "Les Bouleaux"
},
"city": "Nendaz",
"facts" : {
"apartment" : {
"bedrooms" : 1,
"maxAdults" : 2,
"sqm" : 25,
"type" : "apartment"
}
}
}

Structure of the facts objects

The facts object always contains one key with the name of the accommodation type. For an accommodation of type apartment, facts contains at least a key named apartment, and so on.
