They say curiosity killed the cat. I am always curious and grateful at the same time that I do not belong to the feline family else I’ll be six feet under by now while earthworms feast on my body.

Being nosy about things ins’t bad at all; you earn and learn at the same time. By being so snoopy, you meet new friends (or enemies, LOL) and eventually learn stuff which you won’t know just by reading books. And so when I heard this bunch of bloggers talking about Roomorama, I immediately had this desire of knowing what it is.

According to their website, “Roomorama is the discerning traveler’s one-stop shop for short-term rentals. Wherever your next trip will be, or wherever your property is, use our online marketplace to connect and transact with hosts and guests who believe in convenient, rewarding and unique travel experiences. With an ever-growing inventory of hospitable accommodations, Roomorama is working to make you feel at home wherever you are.” So that’s the reason why it is gaining fast popularity within the travel community.

And so to experience, first hand, how the Roomorama system works, I booked one of their hosts’ properties during my first international trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Below are some of the photos of Hotel Chinatown I took during my stay. The inn can be found at the very heart of KL’s Jalan Petaling where all the busy bees can be found all throughout the day (and night). But that’s a whole different story.

You can make inquiries to several hosts as an assurance that someone will get back to you with your questions. You can even seek assistance from their live chat support. And if time is very vital that you can’t waste a single minute waiting for hosts to see your inquiries, then shoot the admins a message (via email) and they’ll be more than happy to assist you with your booking.

When a host finally responds to your questions and a deal has been made, you will now be asked to pay the total amount that will cover the whole duration of your stay. After that, a payment code will be generated, which you need to provide to the host ONLY before you check-in. This code will serve as your key to the property you just booked.
