KViHotel First in Europe Controlled by Guests’ Smartphones

KViHotel First in Europe Controlled by Guests’ Smartphones

The hotel of tomorrow has opened in Budapest. The 40-room, 4-star KViHotel, controlled by TMRW Hotels, uses the most innovative solutions of the 21st century: it literally hands over control to the guests through the TMRW Hotels smartphone application, from booking to checkout. The software solution can be used in other, either new or already operating, hotels.

TMRW Hotels aims to deliver an experience that travellers of tomorrow can enjoy by providing innovative solutions to reach the next step in the evolution of hospitality. After two years of IT development and construction work, the first hotel in Europe, representing 4-star level and controlled by the guests’ smartphones, opened in Budapest on 5th March. Based on the latest travel trends and the expectations of the future, the hotel offers travellers an unparalleled experience.

KViHotel (Key Vision, derived from ‘Vision for the Future’) is located at 32 Nyár Street, District 7, and operates almost without any staff using the TMRW Hotels application: nearly all functions are managed by the guest with his/her own smartphone.

Digital Solutions for Duration of Trip

Thanks to the TMRW Hotels mobile app, downloadable for Android and iOS devices, hotel guests can obtain practically all services by pushing a button: they can book rooms and can check in without queuing up to 48 hours before arrival, by selecting the floor and the room.

Through Bluetooth connection the smartphone is also the key for the room and in case arrival is late in the night the guest’s phone opens the main entrance of the hotel, too. With the TMRW app, the hotel guest can control (among others) cooling/heating and may set the desired temperature of the room for the arrival time, even from a distance of 10,000km.

Additional cleaning can also be requested through the app and the ‘Please don’t disturb’ sign may even be put out virtually. The guest can also pay through the app, order a taxi, and is also able to monitor the payment process.
