ABOUT COMPANYRoomLion.com is a discovery and reservation portal for finding short-term rentals with emphasis on serviced apartments. These short-term rentals are ideal for those looking for an accommodation for anywhere between a week and a few months. The current alternatives are hotels which are expensive, regular rentals which are improbable or PGs which are restrictive in terms of freedom.
The vision is to streamline the entire booking cycle - right from finding all available options to helping the guest to pick the most appropriate option by providing curated data and actual virtual tours; and then reserving it seamlessly online.
