Speaking at the occasion Ankit Tandon, COO, OYO Townhouse, OYO Hotels & Homes, said, “OYO Townhouse defines a unique hospitality experience as it combines our futuristic technology and designed processes. With the launch of our third OYO Townhouse in Pune, we have further strengthened our commitment to the city by creating beautiful living spaces and offering them to customers at an affordable cost. Our country’s hospitality industry suffers from a wide gap between demand and supply of quality living spaces forcing most travellers to compromise on decision variables of location, comfort, and pricing. OYO Townhouse is slowly yet steadily addressing this gap by creating a perfect balance between each of these variables to suit our customer’s requirements.”

OYO has established itself as a force to reckon with in the hospitality sector and we are happy to see it flourish in Maharashtra. I am elated to be a part of this celebration and wish the team good luck for the future.’’
