#8 BYHOURS microstays
BYHOURS is mainly used by international business travellers in between meetings and international travellers during layovers. The hotel portfolio is therefore strategically planned in order to offer hotel rooms by-the-hour close to the main airports, transport stations, business centers and city centers. Complementary to this, we see a boost and an opportunity for all those urban leisure seekers who are open to new experiences in their city and make use of a hotel room for some hours in order to enjoy all hotel facilities and services as a normal guest. Other examples of use could include: a rest for relatives close to hospitals in need of some hours of rest, or even freelancers who through BYHOURS find a hotel with a meeting room with good WIFI and all the services required to remain productive anywhere they may go.
