Rappi, the multi-vertical and multi-Latin platform operating in 9 countries, will start distributing hotels by the hour through Rappi Travel through its app after signing an agreement with the Spanish Travel Tech BYHOURS. In this way, Rappi incorporates micro-stays, the new trend in the hotel sector created in 2012 by BYHOURS.

BYHOURS & Rappi Travel another step forward in their commitment to innovation and personalization.

With this collaboration, Rappi users will have access to the BYHOURS product, whether for business trips, layovers, and delays at airports or for local leisure, enjoying a few hours in the best hotels in the main cities of Latin America. In the words of the CEO and founder of the Spanish company, Guillermo Gaspart, “our mission is to bring micro-stays to everyone so that they have greater flexibility and personalization when booking a hotel”. In 2022, the pay-per-use hotel industry will expand its presence with the opening of the U.S. market. Users then will be able to book hotels by the hour in major cities in Europe, Latin America, the United States and the Middle East, consolidating BYHOURS’ commitment to the “B2B” business model.

Guido Becher, Global Head of Rappi Travel, added: “We are pleased to have access to BYHOURS’ extensive product portfolio in the region and worldwide. It ratifies our interest in offering people more options to make their trips an experience with BYHOURS’ micro-stays offer.” 

Currently, Rappi travel offers the option to purchase flights, hotel bookings and car rentals, with other benefits such as 5% cashback for purchases with the RappiCard and cancellation of reservations for up to 24 hours.

This modern boutique hotel has it all in on, and the best part is that you can book it by the hour. Our recommendation? Book 3 or 6 hours to relax after a walk around the historic centre, and finish the evening on a spectacular terrace with views of the Zócalo from the restaurant bar.

BYou: hotels for couples in Colombia.

Hotels for couples in Colombia

We are used to going to a hotel on exceptional occasions and when travelling, but what we don’t realise is that we have the best hotels in our city, just out there at our disposal for any normal day. In hotels, we can not only find cosy beds, but we also have different facilities and services which you can enjoy without limitations with the BYHOURS microstates, and what better way than sharing them with your partner?

 If you are from Colombia, this is your article, some of the best hotels in Bogota and Cartagena, where you will lose track of time.

Multiple quality experiences in hotels: 

Bogotá Hotels Plaza Spa

Bogotá Plaza Hotel

That is one of our favourite hotels in Bogotá because of its spa on the 5th floor. With the slogan “Our Warmth Stays in You”, this hotel offers in its facilities aquatic therapies, different facial and body treatments, and massages with which you will spend an unforgettable afternoon with your partner. 

Hilton hotel pool

DoubleTree By Hilton

With the best views of Bogota, the DoubleTree also offers a full range of relaxation facilities. Among its spa services, the hotel offers a special treatment for couples in which you will be able to connect more deeply with your favourite person. After having gone through the water circuits, sauna, Turkish bath, and heated pool, some chocolate strawberries and half a bottle of wine await you in the room to complete your date.

Centro Hotel Restaurant

Centro Hotel by Prima Collection

Apart from the excellent services, this hotel stands out in Cartagena for its location. Perfect for a getaway with your partner. Located in the centre of the historic centre of Cartagena de Indias, it is an ideal place to get to know the culture and get to know it a little better. 

After an afternoon on the city streets, relaxing for a few hours in a hotel is necessary. The Centro Hotel by Prima Collection is a safe bet. In addition, they currently offer a bottle of wine so you can surprise your loved ones.

Boutique hotels terrace with pool

Boutique Hotel Casa del Coliseo

Very close to the Plaza Santo Domingo in Cartagena, we also find this beautiful hotel that blends in with the city. It is perfect for enjoying a few hours as a couple, as the decoration and the romantic atmosphere surrounding the facilities make it very intimate. One of the hotel’s most special corners is its terrace next to the swimming pool; perfect for a drink before dining in the city centre.

So much for our recommendations of hotels for couples in Colombia. If you want more or need to surprise your partner in another destination, take a look at the romantic plans section of the blog (thank me later ;)! 

Enjoy the city

Spend a few hours in Italy’s top 5 cities

rome-g0b6abdc75_1920

Apart from the great tourist attractions and food, Italy hides unique places in every city. At BYHOURS we love this country because it is a safe bet for improvised escapes. Here we leave you our perfect combinations to discover the best cities in Italy with our microstays: 

 

Rome

All the historical monuments are a MUST, but our favourite and the lesser-known spot is Aventine Keyhole. It’s a small viewpoint situated just a few minutes from the centre. Through the keyhole of the Knights of Malta property, you can see St. Peter’s Basilica. It’s located between the residential neighbourhood of Testaccio and the Circus Maximus and is one of our favourite free attractions. 

To round off the day by wandering the historic streets of Vatican City or discovering the historical centre, the NH Collection Roma Palazzo Cinquecento hotel is the best choice for a 12-hour package and a pleasant stay. 

Aventine Keyhole

 

Florence

This city could not be missing from our list since, even if it was only for five years, in 1.865, Florence was the capital of Italy. Our favourite spot is the Bardini Gardens, located near the Boboli Gardens of the Pitti Palace but with the advantage of being less frequented. The Bardini has no more and no less than four hectares of woods, cypress trees, gardens, and fruit orchards, where you can take a romantic stroll with your partner. Speaking of romanticism, the Hotel Cellai Florence is one of those that follow this aesthetic and, takes care of all the details of its facilities. How about taking a break with the 3-hour package and having a glass of wine on the terrace?

Florence - bob

 

Venice

We’ll never tire of admiring the charm of the flooded streets of the city of Venice. The perfect plan is to get lost in its lanes and canals. That’s how, we found La Scala Contarini del Bovolo, one of the most beautiful and best-preserved Renaissance staircases in Venice. Beautiful, isn’t it? At the foot of the canals, there is also a hotel with privileged views, the Hotel Canal Grande. Having breakfast on its terrace overlooking the canal, watching the gondolas go by, is something you have to enjoy once in a lifetime (at least).

Venice

 

Verona

In the north of Italy, we find the famous city of Romeo and Juliet, where you can breathe a medieval and romantic atmosphere in every corner. In Verona, unlike the other cities, we’d like to propose a plan that may seem very typical but is still something: a visit to Juliet’s house. We love its walls full of letters and love notes. Make your wish, honour your love, and who knows, maybe you’ll find a letter from your secret lover among the multitude of declarations. After enjoying the sunset from the Arena di Verona, we recommend the Montresor Hotel Palace, one of the most central yet comfortable hotels to rest after a long day.

Verona

 

Milan

With BYHOURS you can experience Milan differently. We introduce you to The Corner Duomo Hotel where spending 12 hours will be an unforgettable experience. Located 0.7 km from the luxury shopping street Via Monte Napoleone. Set within walking distance of the Piazza del Duomo and with panoramic views. The “jewel in the crown” of this hotel are its two Suites with an in-room spa and a round bed. Perfect to rest, unwind and relax after a day of shopping in the city centre.

We understand, a 3-hour package doesn’t seem like much, but this hotel deserves all 12 hours to enjoy it to the fullest.
