Book Your Hotel With OYO.

It's usually very hard to book a comfortable hotel for less than RM 100 per night. Now with OYO, many people can save money and still stay at a comfortable hotel. This means more family travelling for me!

OYO was launched in India in 2013. It is India's largest branded network of hotels and aims to be Asia's largest branded network of hotels. It's network currently spans over 6,500+ hotels in 180+ cities. OYO started operating in Malaysia since January 2016 and currently have 200+ hotels and 5,000+ room inventory spread across  Kuala Lumpur, Klang, Petaling Jaya, Rawang, Seremban, Shah Alam, Subang, Penang, Malacca, Johor Bahru, Langkawi, Ipoh, Taiping, Kuala Kangsar, Kampar, Seri Iskandar, Kota Kinabalu and Cameron Highland and very soon across Malaysia at an extremely rapid pace.



OYO promises comfortable, affordable stays which include air conditioned rooms, complimentary WI-FI and 24 x 7 customer service support. OYO is backed by the world's leading investors including SoftBank Group, Lightspeed India, Sequoia Capital and Greenoaks Capital. It has also received many national and international awards.



OYO was founded by Ritesh Agarwal, the first Asian resident to be accepted to the Thiel Fellowship (started by Paypal founder Peter Thiel). He was recently featured in the Forbes 30 under 30 list in the global, Indian and Asian edition under the Consumer Tech category.


 The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

You need to download the OYO App to make your hotel booking. For first time bookings, you get RM50 off by using referral code OYO10X. For subsequent bookings, please use my buddy code MYBUD381 to get 20% off your bookings (capped at RM 40).  Download the OYO App HERE.

 You can search the hotels by city or landmark.

My daughter and I learnt a lot on how to book cheap hotels for our next stay. Hope OYO will expand their network to all the cities in Malaysia soon.

  4. I downloaded the OYO app even before they launched. I don't like that they do not list down the address of the hotel. As an out of towner, it helps to know the address to know for sure which one is near to public transports.
