Dubai hotel owner George Chiavaro has started charging his guests in the UAE for rooms booked on a smartphone app.
In the UAE, hoteliers can rent rooms from their smartphones and use the app to book them for the entire month, and to book an additional room at a later date.
Chiavaros luxury Dubai hotel, The Villa, now has more than a quarter of its rooms booked for the month.
The app allows guests to book rooms and book an extra room, or multiple rooms, at a time.
Guests can choose from a variety of hotels, including hotels that are popular with expats, like the Red Rock Hotel, The Marriot, and the Jumeirah Resort and Spa.
If you want to book a room, the app tells you which hotels have room availability and when you can book the room.
After you book a booking, you can cancel and change your booking preferences, and cancel the booking in a couple of clicks.
Booking a room with a smartphone is convenient because it saves you from booking a hotel and booking multiple rooms in the same day, and can be done from the app’s booking screen.
When you book the hotel, you also have the option to make reservations online, or book from a local bookings company.
While it’s not the best way to book hotel rooms, the hotel owner says that booking rooms through the app is cheaper than booking in person.
However, the company does not offer a refund or credit card, and it’s unclear whether it has a relationship with the hotels.
“I try to keep it simple, and do the best I can,” Chiavalo told The Times.
Hotel owners in Dubai are starting to offer the hotel room booking option to their guests.
Chiavilos resort is not alone in this move.
A spokesperson for the Luxury Resorts Association of Dubai, which represents hoteliers, told The New York Times that the company had “started accepting smartphone booking” in the past few months.
Airbnb’s CEO responded on Twitter to the news of the hotel-room option: This is what happens when the tech industry and hotel industry collude.
Twitter is a bad place to ask questions, but you can read more about the hotel booking option on Airbnb’s blog.
It’s unclear how many people are booking rooms online for the first time through the hotel app.
However, Chiavos hotel did say that it had booked more than 2,000 rooms via the app, which is the highest number of booked rooms in a month.
Chiavalos hotel said that the resort had booked 1,000 more rooms through Airbnb than in any other month of its history.
