Budget hotel chain Treebo Hotels has announced the launch of ‘InstaConnectWiFi’ — a technology feature that would allow guests to automatically connect to the hotels’ Wi-Fi network at over 50 Treebo properties. It will soon be launched across its portfolio of 300 Treebo hotels.

Often, guests end up spending a lot of time post check-in, figuring out how to connect to the hotel’s Wi-Fi network. This includes calling the reception to get the password, finding the right network from the long list that typically appears and keying in the password that often takes multiple attempts, leading to delay and poor experience in most cases.

Treebo’s ‘InstaConnectWifi’ addresses this concern by allowing guests who have checked-in to a Treebo using a valid phone number to automatically connect their devices - mobile, laptop, and tablets as soon as they arrive at the hotel. Irrespective of their mode of booking-app, website or walk-in, the guests will now be able to access the hotel Wi-Fi by simply using their mobile number.

“Our guests can now access Wi-Fi in a simple and efficient manner wherein the only input needed from them is their mobile number — just one time. For all subsequent stays across the Treebo network, guests enjoy zero touch Wi-Fi access with no action on their part. Just as we seamlessly auto-connect to our home Wi-Fi every time we open the door, now our guests will be connected seamlessly to the Wi-Fi network every time they stay at a Treebo hotel,” said Khilan Haria, Head-Product, Treebo Hotels. He claims that Treebo is the first and only Indian hotel chain to offer such a service to its guests.

Founded in June 2015, Treebo Hotels is India’s 3rd largest hotel chain overall and largest in the budget segment.
