Hotel Wi-Fi is Second Only to a Comfortable Bed.

Numerous studies have shown that Wi-Fi is one of the most important hotel features. Displaying hotel Wi-Fi quality info on your website or app can give you a competitive advantage, higher customer satisfaction and better conversion rates.

Hotel WiFi Test provides a free content API that is designed for server-to-server integrations and provides hotel WiFi quality records in bulk. You can cache data on your servers and implement almost any integration scenario, including filtering and sorting, without any performance implications.

Content

For every hotel, we return the following information:

  • WiFi rank: the percentile ranking that shows how this hotel compares with other hotels worldwide. It takes into account all key WiFi characteristics, such as download speed, upload speed, and latency along with confidence. This is the recommended value for the initial sorting and filtering.
  • Expected speed: indicates the speed in Mbps that a user would likely get at a randomly chosen time of day.
  • Confidence: a percentage value that shows how thoroughly the WiFi has been tested at the hotel. The confidence value depends on several factors, including the number of speed tests taken, the number and rating of users who took them, how recently the tests occurred, and the diversity of tests in terms of the time of day and day of the week.
