Room service: Network acts as a new kind of hotel

27.05.2010 Hotel : London : Network

London – A new global network is promoting local values. My Friends Hotel enables travellers to find short-term rental accommodation through friends and ‘like-minded people’.

Homeowners can simply register on the website and start renting out their homes, share their local knowledge and earn money at the same time.

In a video on the site viewers are introduced to twins Dick and Max. While one books hotels rooms and ‘stays in a bubble’, the other books rooms with local people and ‘learns about the world and himself’.

‘It is a community of ‘hearts and minds’ – intelligent, kind people, interested in travel, new experiences and adventure,’ Peter Kindness, founder of the network tells LS:N Global.

We are increasingly noticing these peer-to-peer services. One recent example is the site Bid & Borrow.
