Pune, January 30 2014: A Pune based startup has created a useful service for those looking for short term accommodation... something that is difficult to find if your budget rules out daily-rate hotels.
RoomLion.com is a reservation portal for short-term rentals like serviced apartments and apartment hotels, targeted at guests seeking accommodation for a week or more. All apartments are fully furnished and mostly serviced, which gives guests an experience closest to ‘staying at home’ even for their temporary housing.
Every listing on RoomLion has a 360-degree virtual tour of the entire residence and detailed information verified at the time of listing. This helps minimize unpleasant surprises at check in. Presently, RoomLion has over 7000 room listings across 9 Indian cities.
RoomLion.com is led by Ashish Agrawal. Prior to setting up RoomLion, Ashish worked with Google in Mountain View, California. Ashish is an alumnus of Carnegie Mellon University and also has a Masters degree in Computer Science. The RoomLion team has 10 full-time members spread across Pune, Bangalore & Delhi.
