Ritesh Agarwal’s online marketplace for affordable stays, OYO Rooms, received $100 million in funding from SoftBank earlier this week. Agarwal is 21, and demographically aligned to a youthful country full of young entrepreneurs. Using technology and standardization, he is building what is one of the few non-copycat startups in an India with many Uber and Amazon imitators. OYO Rooms currently offers 14,000 rooms in 80 cities. His closest branded hotel competitor is India’s iconic Taj Hotels, run by conglomerate Tata’s Indian Hotels, whose current inventory of about 9,000 rooms, albeit in the upper end of the hospitality segment, is to double soon.
The two-year-old OYO is Uber-like and not an Airbnb imitator for several reasons. In India, the problem of finding affordable accommodations is massive. The challenge is not discoverability, which is what startups like Airbnb address. Rather it is the lack of predictability in hotel stay experiences that Agarwal is tackling. Travelers are all too familiar with nightmarish encounters in standalone hotels in India. Contrary to promises, guests arrive to ramshackle buildings, missing signage, leaky washrooms, torn mattresses, unclean floors, sputtering air-conditioning, non-acceptance of credit cards and so on.
