Alonso Franco is Arrivedo’s CEO and co-founder. In his many years of hospitality experience (he runs a hostel chain called Pariwana in Peru) he realized two big problems for hotels:
1) Hotel platforms give hotels a secondary voice
Most hotel platforms give hoteliers secondary voice, only allowing them to respond to reviews or complaints. No online platform gave a voice to hotels as local hosts.
2) There is no platform that organizes hotel’s recommendations for their guests
There are billions of questions that are asked by travelers in the hotel lobby. Most hotels respond by sharing with their guests printed maps and brochures, which are easy to lose and expensive to print. However, there was no platform for hotels to organize their local recommendations for guests.
In this regard, he found an opportunity for all hotels in the world to transfer this information to an online platform: Arrivedo.
