Here you must decide whether an accommodation is rented as one whole unit or on a per room basis. This setting also determines whether vacancies created for this accommodation are specific to a room type and accommodation or just to an accommodation.
A hotel for example, would use room types, whilst an apartment would not. When using Book Your Travel for a single property, you can use either/or, depending on which feature works better in your case (using accommodations as your rooms or use the room type feature).
There is also a difference in the display on the website. The image on the right shows how the availability tab of a property that uses room type is displayed. A property that uses room types, displays a list of rooms and each room has its own calendar. A property that does not use room types would only display one calendar for the whole property.
The room types setting for each accommodation can be found inside the Booking tab:
The associated room types setting connects your rooms to an accommodation.
To create a new room type go to Accommodations > Room types.

Room title: The name of the room (for example Single room, Double room with balcony etc.)
