HOTEL ON DEMAND
If you rent a hotel room, you pay for renting some amount of space for 24h/day, even if you stay there only 6 hours. The cost and standard is strictly connected with the distance to the city center and the most important tourist hotspots. When you visit a new city or country, you want to be most mobile – you want to do sightseeing, feel the atmosphere of the place. You want to be everywhere and see everything. And you never know, where you would finish your day.
Let’s assume the whole city is our hotel – with rooms all around it.
Today most services are available on demand with delivery. Doesn’t matter if it is a pizza, movie, hairdresser appointment or shopping – all this things are available to order with a few clicks on your mobile phone. Basic role of a hotel is providing a place to sleep. For us, providing place to sleep is a service too. Why not treat it like something that can be delivered to the customer?
Modern technology gives us solutions to make it possible.
Imagine you have just finished a great party in the downtown of the city you are currently visiting. Usually you would need to travel to the suburbs to sleep – or pay crazy amount of money to do it in the city centre. So let’s invert it and let your hotel room come to you. It is small (what else would you need?), cheap (because you pay only for time spent in it), really quick (the first nearest room would appear as soon as possible) and easy to order (via comfortable phone app).
We present you Zizzz – hotel on demand. Click a button on your phone and the nearest driverless mobile bed will find you. It is suited for the place you are visiting – so it could be rendered as a car, but could be also a plane, drone or a yellow submarine – the possibilities are countless. Just tell it when and where you want to wake up and your hotel will guide you while you are resting. Pay only for the time spent and distance covered, no more, no less.
