Urvee posted on 17 July


Hotels with a difference: StayUncle helps young couples book rooms with ease, and with no judgement whatsoever.

Best Uncle Ever

If you and your SO happen to be locals in a city, and you happen to be unmarried, and you happen to need a hotel room, well too bad for you. But all that’s about to change.

Gone are the days when two {consenting, might we add} adults needed to beg favours from friends or skulk around in cars. Enter StayUncle, a Delhi-based start-up that has collaborated with various hotels across the country {Delhi & Gurgaon too} that will allow couples to book rooms for up to 10 hours. Judgement-free, too.

Check in and check out timings are either 10am – 7pm or 9pm – 8am, and the rooms are priced between INR 1,500 – INR 5,000. Twenty-six-year-old founder Sanchit Sethi, told Quartz in a phone interview, “There is no law in India that prohibits {unmarried} couples from renting a room. As long as you have a government identity card, you should be given a room. We don’t live in the 1950s anymore. What we are trying to do is change the mindset of hoteliers.”
