We are changing the rules of hospitality to bring flexibility and fairness into hotel bookings

Only pay for time you stay

We advocate fair pricing. Why pay for entire day if you use the hotel only for few hours? At Mistay you pay only for the time you stay at the hotel.

Flexible check in & check out time

You don't need to wait till 12 noon to check-in. You don't have to check-out at 11 am if your flight is late in the evening. You can select the slots that suits your timings.

Delightful hotel experience

We only partner with the best hotels. Our average rating on TripAdvisor is 4+. We ensure the staff, location, amenities & services of hotel are such that you'll love to come back.

Our customers love us!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the payment options available while booking a hotel online on MiStay?
Customers have the option to either make an advance payment or pay at the hotel during check-out. They can make advance payment through the card (debit as well as credit), net-banking or third party wallet. The wallets accepted on MiStay are Payzapp, Ola Money, Freecharge, SBI Buddy and Vodafone mPesa.
How can corporate travellers benefit by booking hourly basis hotels on MiStay?
Corporate travellers and people in transit who require rooms for few hours to freshen up before a meeting or a connecting flight/ train etc. used to suffer due to rigid check-in time at the hotel. Also, often corporate travellers want to check-in early or check-out late and standard 12-noon check-in isn’t convenient for them. MiStay created a platform called MiStay for Business where business travellers can pay for the time they are staying with a flexible check-in and check-out facility, a dedicated Relationship Manager and discounts and cashbacks catered exclusively for corporate travel needs.
Why was it not possible to book hotel rooms for few hours?
Earlier there was no concept of short stay hotels and hotels usually provided accommodation with rigid check-in and check-out time. Also offering rooms by hour comes with operational challenges and logistical complexities.There was also a challenge of dealing with the taboo associated with the booking of a room by hour. MiStay helped in solving the above problems by building a technology platform that provides a scalable solution to support the change required in booking hotel rooms by hour.
What is the cancellation policy at MiStay?
Different hotels have different cancellation policies with hotels deducting a particular percent of your total booking price based on the time you will cancel your confirmed booking before check-in. The same will be mentioned in the cancellation policy section of hotel profile page on our website. However, if the mode of payment is pay at hotel then there will be a free cancellation.
What is the minimum age to book an hourly hotel room?
The right to admission of allowing a guest of particular age group always lies with the hotel. According to law, guests need to be above 18 years of age to be allowed to check-in. However, there are some hotels which have an age limit greater than 18 years. All the above conditions apply equally well while booking an hourly hotel room through MiStay.
Can couples book a hotel through MiStay?

All the hotels we partner with, understand Indian jurisdiction and abide it with the utmost respect. The safety of the guests while they are staying in the hotel and their belongings are of utmost importance and the hotel management takes the requisite steps in providing a safe and secure environment for the guests not limiting to couples itself.
Does MiStay partner hotels accept guests with Local IDs?
The right to admission of whether to allow local ID holders, unmarried couples always lies with hotels. Even if the hotels accept local ID cards but they think that there’s something suspicious about the guests, they have the right to deny the room. If there is no mention of restrictions related to allowing local IDs or unmarried couples in the hotel policy section of hotel profile page in our website, it means those hotels accept local ids or unmarried couples. A large network of couple friendly hotels partnering with MiStay accepts guests with Local ID cards.

  • Leisure travellers who want to experience the royal hospitality of 5-star luxury hotels. They can experience this by booking room by hours through MiStay luxury hotel partners.
  • Student travellers who travel to different cities for writing the test or hunting for jobs and require room for few hours to get ready. “Day use” perfectly fits into their needs.
Will I be charged extra if I bring a visitor along with me just for few hours?
There are 2 situations here:
  • If the hotel charges the same rate for single occupancy as well as double occupancy rooms then you can book the double occupancy room and the visitor will not be charged any amount as the guest has already paid for the same.
  • However, if the hotel charges different rates for single occupancy and double occupancy rooms then the guest on bringing the visitor along with him/her, needs to pay the respective amount being charged for a particular slot booked in double occupancy room Also, If the visitor happens to be female and the guest already booked through hotel is male or vice versa then some hotels may demand Local IDs or other verification in accordance with the hotel policies mentioned in the hotel policy section of hotel profile page in MiStay website.
