Project Title: Scrape Hotels Listings Reviews, Location, Property Information, User Data

Project Description:
1. Context
– We are looking for a partner to externalize its website crawling / scraping / data extraction activities.
– We are looking for a SLA of 99%. Quality and accuracy are of utmost importance.
– The number of websites to crawl will increase over time and exceed 100.
– Industry: Hotels.
– Type of data: (1) hotel listings, (2) hotel property information, (3) hotel location data, (4) travel reviews, (5) user data.
– Languages: All.
– Period: data from the past (with specific date limitation) but also incremental data on monthly basis.
– Coverage:
– Short-term: list of cities to be provided by Travelsify.
– Long-term: Worldwide.
– Additional challenge to standard scraping: all scraped data should be normalized per hotel property, meaning that hotel property matching across websites is mandatory:
– Example: Hotel Property #000001 is composed of:
– https://www.expedia.com/Barcelona-Hotels-W-Barcelona.h2578680.Hotel-Information
– http://www.tripexpert.com/barcelona/hotels/w-barcelona
– https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g187497-d1465497-Reviews-W_Barcelona-Barcelona_Catalonia.html
– http://www.booking.com/hotel/es/w-barcelona.en-gb.html
– http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/spain/catalonia/barcelona/hotels/w-barcelona-hotel/
– Pilot: Before entering into any commercial collaboration, We are willing to have a test on the following cities to validate accuracy, performance, and way of working:
a. Paris (city and surroundings), France
b. Barcelona (downtown city), Spain
c. Boston (downtown city), MA-USA

2. Websites
– For the purpose of the pilot, we are looking to scrap the 5 following websites:
a. Booking: https://www.booking.com
b. TripAdvisor: https://www.tripadvisor.com
c. Expedia: https://www.expedia.com
d. TripExpert: http://www.tripexpert.com
e. Telegraph Travel: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/
– Should the pilot on the 3 cities mentioned above be conclusive, the list of websites to crawl/scrap will be extended and exceed 100.

3. Hotel Property Listings
– For each of the websites to scrap, the list of hotel properties per city needs to be retrieved.
– The hotel property listings should not include apartments, bed and breakfasts, boats, guesthouses, hostels, holiday homes, love hotels.
– Hotels ranging from 0 to 5 stars.
– Additional work: hotel properties matching across websites (cf. chapter #1)

4. Hotel Location Data

5. Hotel Property Information

Hotel other names, e.g. Expedia indicates whether the hotel has other names and which ones: https://www.expedia.com/Barcelona-Hotels-W-Barcelona.h2578680.Hotel-Information (the other names for W Barcelona are: Barcelona W, W Hotel, W Barcelona Catalonia, W Barcelona, W Hotel Barcelona, w Barcelona Hotel Barcelona)

a. Overall review score
b. Review score per category (cleanliness, location, staff, comfort, free wi-fi, value for money, etc.)
c. Scraping of all reviews in all languages since November 2014. Please note that translations of reviews are not accepted.
