01

La idea detrás de Bidroom

Nuestros fundadores lanzaron bidroom.com después de tener innumerables conversaciones con los hoteleros y escuchar que estaban extremadamente frustrados con el pago de altas comisiones y no tener control sobre sus ingresos y comunicación con sus clientes. Queremos cambiar eso y hacer del mercado un lugar más justo para los hoteles y sus huéspedes.

El concepto de Bidroom aporta justicia a la industria de la hospitalidad. Somos un puente que conecta los hoteles con sus huéspedes directamente, devolviendo el control a los hoteles y los mejores precios posibles para nuestros miembros.
