Whether it’s your coffee or your aircraft seat, nowadays everything can be customized as per your taste and need. So, why shouldn’t the hospitality sector offer its customers the same thing? Well, we might be able to customize our rooms, their facilities, but the one thing that every hotel guest has ever wanted to do was to customize their hotel bills according to their stay hours. This particular dream of every frequent hotel guest was realized when a few short-stay startups like Stayuncle.com, Mistay.in and 6hourly.com etc. entered the hospitality sector. Joining this short-stay hotel segment race is a Noida based startup called Brevistay.
Started by four engineering graduates in May, 2016, breviStay claims to be a one stop solution for one’s way to hotels in a totally customized manner. With breviStay by one’s side, they can book quality hotels stay for a short period like 3 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours or a day long and then pay accordingly to the number of hours they have booked the room for. The added bonus, no fixed check-in/check-out time.
Having started their journey only a few months ago, the startup is currently only catering to short-stays hotel needs in Delhi and Noida. One can book themselves a breviStay either over a call or visiting their website. In order to make the service more user-friendly, the startup plans to launch their android application by the end of this month.
According to the startup, the response from customers has been quite promising, with almost 10-15 inquiries coming their way through various sources for people looking for rooms in Noida or Delhi.
