One of the main things you need to know when playing Habbo is how to use the room settings. The room settings is a pop-up box which enables Habbo users to control or change certain aspects of their room. This guide will take you through each section of the room settings and what they are used for. It’ll be handy for you if you’re new to playing Habbo, or are trying to find something specific in the setting tabs.
The first tab, ‘Basic’, is the first section which is shown to you when clicking ‘Settings’ on the bottom left-hand side of your screen when in one of your rooms.
Room Name: Enter the desired name for your Habbo Hotel room.
Add a description: Use this section to add fansite links or to describe what your room is used for.
Category: Select a category that links best with your room, (e.g. Hosting a Heaven Or Hell game would be put in the category “Habbo Games”)
Maximum amount of visitors: Select how many Habbos you wish to be able to visit at one time.
Trade Settings: The theme of the room determines what setting you use, e.g. An events room would turn trading off during the game, but an auction room would let everybody trade.
Tags: This helps your room become noticed on the navigator. Use code words that are popular searches (e.g. Auction, Trade, or Habbox)
Enlist room in navigator top lists by furniture content: Allows the room to be ranked in the navigator by how much furniture is present in the room.

The second tab, named ‘Access’, is the section which will allow you to edit who can enter your room, both Habbos and Pets.
