Chototel One Ltd (Chototel) designs lowcost, high-tech buildings than can serve the accommodation needs of people who cannot afford to rent privately. Rooms in the first project, in Nagothane, near Mumbai, start at $2 a night, and can sleep up to four people. Utility bills are charged separately; however, these don’t cost more than $0.50 a day because the building is completely off-grid and uses renewable and sustainable forms of energy, such as solar power. Further cost savings are delivered by automating various hotel services via bots and a smartphone app. The business is globally scalable and plans are in place to expand into the UK and UAE.
