This is a manual system of reservation. In this system, a daily diary is kept, in which the reservation agent lists all arrivals due on a particular day. It is the primary system of reservation.
Hotels using the diary system of reservation do not have a different reservation section. The register has 365 pages (plus a few more so that the reservations of the subsequent year can be recorded). It has a practical usage in small properties.
