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.
