Roomorama – Find A Room For Rentals In Major Cities In US

Filed under: Search — Tags: — Girish @ 3:12 am

Roomorama is a portal that helps people find rooms according to the requirement in major cities of USA like Chicago, New York, Miami, Los Angeles etc. It is a peer-to-peer short term marketplace for rental rooms. It is useful for both the hosters and travelers. Hosters can put their unused rooms on rent and travelers can have cheap rooms in comparison to costly hotel rooms with very good facilities available.

How to Use Roomorama
1. Search various listings on the basis of city, staying period and number of guests and kind of accommodation you need.
2. Enter detailed information to refine your search (by rent, room type etc) for selecting the best possible available accommodation or you can post a shootout so that whenever available hosts will contact you.
3. You can view apartment pictures and check their description along with many other details.
4. After selecting the required accommodation, pay online and receive a payment code.
5. After reaching the desired destination, give the payment code to the hoster before check-in.
6. Sign up is required for all the steps mentioned above i-e only a registered user can avail this facility.

Roomorama is a very useful portal especially for hostlers and travelers. Hostlers can give their spare room on rent even to strangers without any risk involved as the payment is made in advance and that too online.

Also travelers can easily opt for these cheap rooms with almost the same facility as in costly hotels. People can be at ease in these rented accommodations. It can be very useful for students studying abroad as they are not familiar with new places and so they can get these rooms and share with a partner so that they don’t have to wander here and there looking for rooms. With a lot more cities being added to it, this portal promises to bring a lot more facilities.

Editor’s view: It’s a very good facility for various travelers like students and businessman looking for hotel alternatives. But the problem with this portal is that it is not very attractive in itself. A few more features for each city should be added like nightlife, various major centres nearby that area. And also there is no provision for pre check in verification of the tenant. All in all its good start.
