Honestly, the play of words got the curious cat out of the bag in me. Those with playful minds will make a pun out of the name of the newest mobile-for-travel app, HotelQuickly. Quickie, is that would you say? Humour or not, when seriously taken, the word play becomes beneficial for people who loves traveling and in some sort of dilemma when looking out for a perfect place, hotel, hostel, etc., in the most convenient ways possible.
I thought “HotelQuickly will be just another typical travel and hotel booking app that I wont probably use, lest will just take a lot of space on my mobile device.” Good thing that I was able to join a group of bloggers who came by at A Space in Makati and got to listen as Raphael Cohen, Co-founder, CSO, introduces what HotelQuickly is really all about.
I am impressed of HotelQuickly’s UI and the fluid display of the booking choices as I installed the mobile-for-travel app on my Honor 6 device. As Mr. Cohen was explaining the benefits of the mobile app for users, I was tinkering the actual app I installed and discovering the fine graphics and prints of HotelQuickly which was officially launched in March 2013 in 6 countries that grew with more than 200 destinations in 15 countries, as of this writing.
Apart from the great display and affordable booking rates, which you will find once you’ve installed the app (by the way, you may want to install it right away on your mobile device to get Php 700 credit as soon as you have it on your smartphone.
