We are scientists from a university in Europe. In this experiment (which lasts about 20 minutes), we would first like to ask you to interact with different hotel recommendation systems. At the end of the experiment, we would like to ask you for your feedback on your interaction with the recommendation systems. Your valuable input will help us to improve the design of future IT technologies in this area.


Your Task: Find the perfect hotel for your holidays. First, you will be asked some general questions and to provide a brief description of your ideal hotel. Then, only a subset of hotels will be displayed based on the description you entered. You can interact with the system. More information will be provided at each step.


Once you have found the hotel of your dreams, click on "Choose this hotel".


There will be a total of 4 systems that you will interact with. Please remember the order in which the interfaces are presented to you as this will be important for the feedback at the end of the experiment. After interacting with each of them, all the hotels will be displayed and you will be able to browse the list of hotels and select the one that suits you best.
