OYO Rooms to add 2,000 rooms in Bangalore in 12 months

OYO Rooms, a network of branded hotels said it will offer 2,000 high-quality rooms in 150 hotels across Bangalore by the end of 12 months.

Currently, OYO currently offers 300 rooms in 29 hotels, spread across Bangalore’s major business and tourist-friendly locations, including Brigade Road, Koramangala, Whitefield, Indiranagar and MG Road. It currently operates in 10 major business and travel destinations including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Chennai, Goa, Jaipur, Gurgaon, Noida and many more to come.

OYO Rooms offers rooms at prices starting from Rs. 999 per night. These rooms are equipped with standardized amenities, comfortable beds, air conditioning, TV, free and unlimited Wi-Fi, a clean and attached washroom and a complimentary breakfast service. The company has recently raised Rs. 150 crore (US $25 million) in venture capital funding and plans to use this money to undertake a massive expansion in Bangalore and other cities.

Ritesh Agarwal, CEO, OYO Rooms said, “Our Bangalore expansion is an important part of our journey of building the world’s largest network of branded hotels. Our team is working very hard to create a niche in the branded budget hotel segment offering convenience that is technology based, exactly what the youth today understands and expects. We have chalked out an aggressive expansion plan for Bangalore as we anticipate a huge demand among travellers to Bangalore.”

“With standardized rooms across India priced as low as Rs. 999 a night, we are not only making travel smarter & more accessible to Indians, but also completely changing the value perception of a budget hotel stay,” Agarwal added.

Abhinav Sinha, COO, OYO Rooms, said, “OYO uses technology to deliver a far superior and standardized customer experience across all our properties. We are looking to offer an unprecedented, seamless experience to the budget traveller at all stages, from the discovery and booking of a room to its realization with the promise of an awesome stay at all times.”

The company’s official press release stated that all OYO hotels are equipped with a tablet, running a proprietary OYO ‘Property Manager’ app that ensures a superior, hassle-free experience for all guests. Using this app, a hotel manager can track the real time status of bookings and room availability, manage check-ins and checkouts can readily view and action any special guest requests, for example, a request for late check-out or a ground floor room. The app also helps a manager conveniently track payments as well as incidental expenses like F&B and laundry attributed to a guest.
