Booking of same-day hotel rooms
HotelsAroundYou was an India focused service centered on last minute and short stay bookings. It offered users with the option to book hotels for two types of stays: day transit option or night use hotel. The app featured hotels that had unsold rooms and got a commission when users booked a hotel through the app.
The app was offering a service that had already many competitors that had decades of experience and users’ trust. HotelsAroundYou was unable to elicit an additional round of funding from investors and it went on to quietly shut down while its founders had already relocated to other companies.
