In the wake of the pandemic that has devastated Japan’s tourism industry, hotels have offered special deals to attract domestic tourists.
A hotel in Tokyo is promoting the best deal in the world, offering guests a free stay if they check in on social media.
根據Sora news報導，這間位在東京地鐵四谷站附近的旅店Hotel New Shohei與其他旅宿業一樣，受疫情影響，生意慘淡，有些日子甚至完全沒有客人。
According to Sora News, Hotel New Shohei, located near the Tokyo Metro Yotsuya station, has seen a drastic decrease in guests amid the coronavirus outbreak, with some days having no guests at all.
So instead of leaving every room empty, the hotel owner thought it would be better to let travelers stay for free and enjoy the service.
Of course, the hotel is not offering free stay without asking for anything in return.
Visitors who enjoy the free stay, must mention the name and location of the hotel and post photos to one of their social media accounts.
However, the hotel does not require visitors to write lengthy positive reviews. There is no restriction on the length or content of the post.
In addition, if people do not want to disclose the exact date of their stay, they can simply inform the hotel and add their post afterward.
In addition, all guests can still enjoy free coffee, juice, and alcoholic beverages in the guest lounge.
The free stay plan is available from Monday to Friday nights for solo travelers. All they need to do is to mention “I’d like to request the free room plan” when making a reservation.
