StayUncle  -  Saviour or Sinner ?

Read an interesting article about a startup in India –

Stay Uncle is the brainchild of Sanchit Sethi – It is aimed at helping unmarried couples find hotel rooms to stay in.

While many hotels refuse to give rooms to even single occupants , many demand a marriage certificate if a couple is booking a room.

The site currently has tied up with hotels in Delhi and Gurgaon which can be accessed and checked on their site. They also have tie-ups with hotels in many other cities like Mumbai, Simla, Bangalore, Patiala, etc. They offer hotel bookings for 12 hours, not 24 hours and the timings for which the hotels can be booked are day or night. In the day, the timings are from 10AM to 7PM and in the night they are from 9PM to 8AM. The hotels rates are not too expensive either and one can book rooms beginning at rates as cheap as Rs 1200 and over Rs 5000  for 12 hours. StayUncle has also managed to partner with some leading premium hotel chains in the country!

So! What say you …. Is it something beneficial or something that might help promote promiscuity and should be banned ?

Brity,

long years ago people used to spend one full day to watch a film as they want to go to a nearby town taking a bus etc., in our countries. And there were only few Theaters around.

Now a days, you have everything at your fingertips (smart phone). It's very easy to commit a good or a bad thing. (So don’t need one day travel to waste your time, you can always waste sitting on a same place)

My point Concerning the above subject is : It's just a matter of widening a path which is already open.

My part about this subject is just to say that the world is going on a business mode on every-angle. We will find a day, the road side too we can find similar situation where the public eyes will be on sleep mode saying this is freedom of people.

Rizks: With the new visa regulations, there will be a lot of tourists coming in ... perhaps you can take advantage and provide suitable lodgings to "couples"

why not in Gods own country ? :(

I was thinking of opening a similar hotel "Rizka Lounge" with the same concept but awaiting approval from necessary authorizes....once approve will publish the rates, but surely it would be cheaper then the ones mentioned above...:)

Oh, and a welcome drink will be served too on entrance....i.e. fresh Coconut Water with Rasam ! :)
