Flow, a hourly hotel booking app has just launched in Malaysia. The app is looking to revolutionise the way guests view and use luxury hotels by introducing Klang Valley residents to the concept and possibilities of daycations and micro-stays at some of the best hotels in town.
The Flow app and its platform open up a world of 3- to 5-star hotel room bookings on an hourly basis and is designed to provide users with a convenient, affordable, and accessible tool to maximise the potential and use cases for hotel rooms.
Users can open the app anytime they want and make hotel reservations without concerning themselves with the restrictions of standard check-in and checkout times – even customize their experience by the hour and only pay for that specific amount of time. The app does not only provide a variety of hotels via a list but instead it also features a map function that allows users to explore options most accessible to them.
To book through the Flow App, users only need to download the app and register their details accordingly. Users are able to select from a wide selection of hotels and can then specify their preferred time slot or hourly period. As payments are to be made at the hotel, users do not have to worry about making payment in advance and they are guaranteed free cancellation before the stipulated check-in time.
Flow was first launched in Hong Kong in 2018, and following a rousing reception in their home market that resulted in over 200,000 app downloads and 100,000 registered users, Flow branched out to Macau and Singapore along with expanding their services into co-working spaces. Now their most recent venture sees the brand expand into the Malaysian market.
All in the Flow app boast a selection of over 300, 3- to 5-star hotels across the app, with 40 hotels options now available for hourly booking in the Klang Valley area including Pullman Hotel, MiCasa All Suites and InterContinental Kuala Lumpur. Through the rest of 2022, Flow is looking to broaden their list of hotels in Malaysia to cover other major cities, including Penang and Johor Bharu. Currently, hotel rooms on Flow are available between the price range of RM40 – RM300.
