ACTION VERBS - WORDS: See tables 1,2,3 icons



Prove that every day you are able to manage the present and the rooms and services of tomorrow of enterprise product that is the best way to challenge profitability.

An official reception coincides with the host or the hotelier and perfectly expresses the spirit and policies and strives to fulfill its objectives. Daily struggles to leave no room unsold, to sell as much as possible at the best price, to yield the value of hotel products to the consumer and to balance perfectly the interests of both. It is what we call value for money.

An official reception (salesman / saleswoman) is almost the first person who meets the entrant guest of the hotel and the first responsible interlocutor. Therefore you must have in-depth knowledge of the hotel and be able to sell rooms and services. The connector may thus play an important role (on the spot) in the sales room and the hotel services. To another part of the role belongs to the sales department, for which we'll talk another time. We note here that the loss nights is lost revenue because it has the capacity to be stored as solid products.

The main role of the host is then available hotel rooms (sale / disposal). Selling rooms on the spot / done gently through the artful juxtaposition of possible characteristics of different types of rooms to suit the needs of the customer, eg "very nice room" with bath "" with spacious shower "" quiet " , "away from the elevator", the "back", a "more spacious room" "nice decoration", "fruit and water", with late check out, "breakfast".

Too many are peculiar expressions that can use anyone to win the customer. It should also possess eloquence, foreign languages, arguments, persuasion, smile and posture to be friendly. Clothes professional. Here are some key phrases, add your own.

- Can I help you;
- Let me suggest / recommend
- sorry ..
- I would like to ask you a favor ..
- Wait a minute please ..
- Will you please ..
- Nestorion Hotel, good morning, how can I help you? (very important for phones)

Let's recap the Reception:

 The department of Reception considered the communication, coordination, decision, benchmark and settlement issues of concern to the client. The customer exchanges cash (in advance or in part) with accommodation and services installed in the room and the hotel in general. For what is entitled directly or indirectly verbally informed of the most important and in writing or electronically for details. Then the customer t is ready and according to its needs to utilize some or all. Many times these things and asking the hotel is not obliged to provide even know. These have to refuse politely and artistic way the Concierge. A polite apology is enough sometimes to understand the visitor that what you ask is impossible ... But the experienced hotel employee usually know a lot of "how and what" and serve. As we said above trying everything sold to promote it as the unit to benefit. The Americans say the last square centimeter of the hotel should be exploited.

Also be putting into consideration the customer's most critical online information about the hotel. Besides, the hotel actually is a regulation with many useful details about the rights and obligations of visitors and hoteliers. This is essentially an agreement that should be respected. This agreement adds the plus of each hotel and plus that gives the hotel legislation depending on the classification of each hotel and the modernization of legislation and updating due to competition ..

Customers in various ways trying to gain small advantages (and unwittingly). Often there are also complaints about trivial things or whatever. All these minor problems with the official policy of the solve or avoid. We need also a proper preparation long sometimes. We also need proper coordination of internal services Reception hotel - Head - Maid - Preserver - waiter for the proper treatment, the processing or repair or service or cleanliness or additional work to be done.

A short dialogue:

- Good morning sir what can I help you?
- Good morning I would like a room
- Yes sir single or double
- need a double
- Give me a minute please see our availability. Sorry sir this moment there is a double room. You will need to wait a little (less than one hour one hour). Expected to depart on a 11.00
- OK I think I can expect if I do not see the time to rest
- Would you mind to enjoy a hot coffee with scones in the cafeteria of the hotel ;. We also have electronic library and internet corner. Within your web browsing in this site you will find detailed information about the hotel and area. We are ready at any time to serve you.
- Thanks a lot, I will wait.


Success (SUCCESS) was and is wanted in both hotels as workers generally. The success goes through reflection and continuous improvement effort and creativity at work. "Do not be afraid to take responsibility and to try the new. Seize the opportunity. Learn first to be accountable to yourself (self) and then to your superiors. "It helps our self-improvement and easier to correct our mistakes." Permanent pursuit of hotelier is to improve the quality of hotel services. It should solve many problems before, such as the training of staff in technical, behavioral, skills, etc. What we pursue this seminar on "internal sales techniques" different hotel products and services. The pursuit of improvement even slightly is legitimate and very data necessary difficult time passing the hotel industry (as product "luxury" that is not at all cheap. But margins are to get this hotel at a higher service level and (internal ) sales. it is very important that the employee permanently thinking that through the products available to the enterprise and 'free' service will provide the paid value of the client's money in the same, when it comes to hotel to redeem course within the general framework "residence." So has in mind at all times what to directly sell and indirectly eg the employee receiving the playground and the ability of the hotel to refresh or strengthen the morale of the client the "gymnastiriaka" means and possibly the special manual - tips on the subject available. Suggestions So everywhere in every part of every employee at the right time, when the customer is identified not as a victim or as unsuspecting consumer candidate but as a personality Fr. u requires attention and completion of his short life in the hotel 'injections' welfare proagorasmenon not direct perception but also on the spot products that do double good: and to him and to the business.


So we go to another activity "medicine" we would say, or "counseling" highly specialized that has to do with fine tastes and special requirements. The tip-sale must be qualified, flexible, alternative rather vague. There are special manuals literally solve the hands of employees.

This was highlighted by the trainer that we have to be aware of customer psychology who transmit internal and external experiences of the site for good or bad service etc.

Regarding the sale to take place should be first but very quickly a small «marketing» to the customer! Learn about him, to see him, to the rapidly psychologisoume and unfold our tools ie our knowledge, our words, our expressions, our smile, our posture, our written proposals, indirect lure us (a vitrinoula with cheeses and wines next example), our cleanliness, our culture and in general to showcase the best of what we have to sell ... Profit from this process will have the business himself.

ENTHOUSIASMOS: the purpose

But the biggest gain will be the customer's satisfaction. The customer's pleasure. The customer ENTHOUSIASMOS. The happy relays eight times the satisfaction of the excited twenty-eight! so to speak ! H has quality requirements. Hates the problems, indifference, negligence, lack of expertise, the murmur etc.


Such as: EXTERNAL CUSTOMER / INTERNAL CLIENT / REGULAR CUSTOMER / SUPPLIER / CUSTOMER OLD / DYSARESTIMENOS / EFCHARISTIMENOS Generally the dissatisfied customer measures the effort made by the employee to serve him. The clerk must serve thinking that care like I was home. So simply and well. He must first feel happy with the service offered. "People make the difference five stars" Great effort must be made to change incorrect behavior. The practitioner is a synonym of the adjective "serious". well done its job and exceeded. The misery and moaning spoils the mood, poisons the working atmosphere. The company through its superiors per portion should go to the standardization of complaint. Recording, study, categorization solutions. Unhelpful procrastination in any sector.

For confidence:

Many know almost everything about my job. I know what to sell and how. It is almost impossible not to know to answer. Even if this happens, I take care to know. Care to invest in knowledge. Let's improve our microcosm and through practice.


He is well trained He loves his job and the roles they undertake. He is proud of what he does Dignified keeps his level He strives for the perfect knows average solutions.  He has a passion for quality. Make criticism and learns from his mistakes. Respect the rules of professional ethics. He considers his work as a means of development. It's always ready for action - work - mission (known now its commercial policy is effective).

Communication between hotel sections are very serious matter. From one section to be passed serious information not gossiping customer but give the economic potential and symperiforiako stigma. Good to learn the basic principles of communication. Paradeigmatakia ....

Innovation, patience, perseverance and courage and constant readiness must characterize the employee.


The customer greeting and recommendations be made immediately. Listen carefully. We form first impressions. Not expect benefits of serving. Benefit is the customer won. Rudeness, arrogance, extreme caution and the refusal of the presence of man is to serve potential customers behaviors. The kindness and friendliness bend the negative mood of the customer. The confidence building cancels defenses and leads to the acceptance of the professional. An interesting presentation of the product with a suitable reason, posture, gaze and tools moves the customer interest and the avoidance of adverse reactions. GENERAL The questions and INDEFINITE TO AVOID. Prefer closed questions that elicit about.


Successful employee A person who knows very well the advantages and value of services offered. Failed employee A person who does not care to know the advantages and superiority of the services offered. The clerk carefully listen to what the customer wants and anticipates to meet its needs. Think positively. We must not offer services "canned" five stars. Successful employees are those who learn to practice the quality of service techniques correctly. Instead losers are those who think they should not be changed to anything.





HIS + 1% Theory:

The Customer if encountered bad behavior goes and takes with it the impressions and spreads. WHAT SPERNEIS SOWS. The client thinks what everyone would like to have him CUSTOMER. But will win the one who has to show something different in behavior. Customer-hungry services. We all want something more. Let SO TO GIVE TO HIM TO THE ENTITLED. That is, + 1% = 101% (and not only)
