GREE, the Japanese internet services company best known for its games, revealed a new hotel booking service known as Tonight: the mobile app available for both iPhone and Android.
Tonight promises to make reserving hotel rooms a ten second task, placing GREE in competition with popular startups like Hotel Quickly and Hotel Tonight, which are becoming increasingly popular.
At launch, the service is limited to Tokyo and has about 130 hotels registered. This represents about 20% of the Tokyo hotels registered with the popular Japanese travel site Jalan.
GREE maintains that the remainder will join the network by the end of the year.
