ZEN Rooms

Sleep Well, Pay Less

Launched in 2015 in Indonesia and now in 8 countries, ZEN Rooms is undoubtedly the largest and fastest growing budget hotel chain in Southeast Asia, with more than 5,000 rooms across 35+ locations.

Inspired by the Rocket Internet culture where speed and innovation are vital, we are dedicated in constantly thinking how to disrupt things and better the hospitality industry. ZEN Rooms is run by young, intelligent, and hardworking people who are driven to improve the lives of budget travelers by giving them the best accommodation experience in the lowest rate possible.

ZEN Rooms has been a result of our CEOs’ constant traveling around the world. Having worked as a night receptionist in an independent hotel in London, Nathan Boublil saw firsthand the inefficiencies and lack of expertise of small independent hotels and has made it his personal mission to address these. Kiren Tanna, on the other hand, has experienced waking up in a hotel in Jakarta with a giant cockroach skittering in his basin which led him to the realization that Southeast Asia may have been a budget traveler’s paradise but vacationers are too often forced to settle for cheap rooms with dubious quality and safety standards.

That’s the problem that ZEN Rooms is addressing. We have built a budget hospitality brand missing for so long in Southeast Asia through a breakthrough room management model, shaking the hospitality market and providing travelers a more affordable alternative to traditional hotel chains. We partner with local independent hotels, improve their efficiency while pushing the prices to bring value-for-money to the highest level.
