RedDoorz, OYO firece competitors in hotel market

The confrontation between RedDoorz and OYO in the hotel sector has been compared to the duel between Uber and Grab in the past.

On Dang Thi Nhu street in district 1, HCMC, a small RedDoorz hotel has a room rate from VND500,000 to VND600,000, lower than other hotels of the same chain on Le Thanh Ton street, near Ben Thanh Market, at VND800,000-1 million.

Within a radius of hundreds of meters, OYO, the rival of RedDooz, with a similar business model, has three hotels, including two on Ky Con street and one on Nguyen Thai Binh. The hotel room rates are VND350,000-500,000 per night.

Both OYO and RedDoorz use red for brand identification, from logo to decoration style in rooms. And both have been trying to expand their networks in Vietnam.

Within a radius of hundreds of meters, OYO, the rival of RedDooz, with a similar business model, has three hotels, including two on Ky Con street and one on Nguyen Thai Binh. The hotel room rates are VND350,000-500,000 per night.

RedDoorz debuted in late March, about three months earlier than OYO. At the time of opening, the hotel chain operating under the franchise mode from Singapore had 40 hotels in HCMC. The figure increased to 70.

In late June OYO joined the Vietnamese market. At that moment, the largest Indian hotel chain had 90 franchised hotels in six provinces/cities, including Hanoi, HCMC, Da Nang, Phu Quoc, Vung Tau and Nha Trang, and stated it would pour $50 million into Vietnam.

Once an open playing field, the hotel market in this segment has heated up, mostly between the two foreign hoteliers, compared with the confrontation between Uber and Grab.

Both are foreign startups which take full advantage of technology to develop a long existing industry. The two startups provide technology systems which franchised hotels applied in management, and provide guests to partners thanks to booking systems. They also run media campaigns.

Big Data plays an important role in their operations. RedDoorz has RedFox which analyzes information and sets reasonable hotel room rates.

They do not directly own hotels, but cooperate with hotel owners, collect franchise fees or share revenue with hotel owners.

Both have set ambitious business plans in Vietnam. OYO plans to inject $50 million into the market and wants to have 20,000 hotel rooms by the end of the next year.

 

Meanwhile, RedDoorz plans to set up hotels in three more cities, including Vung Tau, Da Nang and Hanoi, to raise the total number of hotels to 200 this year.
