Book Your Hotel With OYO.

It's usually very hard to book a comfortable hotel for less than RM 100 per night. Now with OYO, many people can save money and still stay at a comfortable hotel. This means more family travelling for me!

OYO was launched in India in 2013. It is India's largest branded network of hotels and aims to be Asia's largest branded network of hotels. It's network currently spans over 6,500+ hotels in 180+ cities. OYO started operating in Malaysia since January 2016 and currently have 200+ hotels and 5,000+ room inventory spread across  Kuala Lumpur, Klang, Petaling Jaya, Rawang, Seremban, Shah Alam, Subang, Penang, Malacca, Johor Bahru, Langkawi, Ipoh, Taiping, Kuala Kangsar, Kampar, Seri Iskandar, Kota Kinabalu and Cameron Highland and very soon across Malaysia at an extremely rapid pace.

OYO promises comfortable, affordable stays which include air conditioned rooms, complimentary WI-FI and 24 x 7 customer service support. OYO is backed by the world's leading investors including SoftBank Group, Lightspeed India, Sequoia Capital and Greenoaks Capital. It has also received many national and international awards.

OYO was founded by Ritesh Agarwal, the first Asian resident to be accepted to the Thiel Fellowship (started by Paypal founder Peter Thiel). He was recently featured in the Forbes 30 under 30 list in the global, Indian and Asian edition under the Consumer Tech category.

 The rooms are spacious and comfortable.
