HotelQuickly App: Making It Possible to Score the Best Deals on Last Minute Hotel Bookings

It happens -- finding oneself stranded somewhere without anywhere to sleep and ending up paying for a room offered at an atrocious price. That sucks! But, it's a reality that many regular travelers experience.

This is why I was so excited to find out about HotelQuickly! It is a mobile hotel booking application that allows users to save time and money by booking your last-minute hotel … as the app name says ... quickly! One can choose among the best available 3 to 5 star hotels fast at hassle-free rates that are about 28% cheaper than other online hotel booking options.

Let me share with you my pleasant experience using HotelQuickly. Last Tuesday, I had to attend two events in the Ortigas area and another in Quezon City the next day. I figured it would be more convenient to stay in a hotel overnight instead of going home very late to Alabang and travel far again the next morning.

I checked the HQ app at 9AM, found that Red Planet Ortigas only costs P713 for an overnight stay on Dec. 15 and 16. I didn't think twice and clicked to pay using my Paypal funds. Everything went smoothly. I believe that particular booking was very serendipitous because, although Typhoon Nona (international name, Typhoon Melor) was battering provinces far from Metro Manila, we still got affected by a lot of rains, which led to flooding and heavy traffic on the streets.

my first HQ booking
The second event I attended that day was in Metrowalk Pasig. Thankfully, my husband was with me because when we failed to find a taxi or jeep due to the heavy rain and traffic, we decided to walk the 1.8km distance going to the hotel. (I was grateful to be wearing my Converse Rubber Chucks because my feet were kept dry the whole time!)

fast confirmation
I was so thankful to be able to check in and sleep comfortably instead of battling traffic for hours just to get home. Many of our friends we were with that night arrived at their houses way past midnight! Some of them even expressed regret of not taking the opportunity to use their HotelQuickly apps.  

free breakfast! :)
