President Hotel launches ‘Handy’ travel device


The President Hotel in Cape Town has announced that it will provide in-house guests with a free ‘Handy’ smartphone.

Guests will be able to take this new travel ‘buddy’ on or offsite.

The hotel aims to equip visitors with a better way to discover and experience what the city has to offer.

With the Handy device, guests can make unlimited local and international calls.

This will allow global travellers the ability to stay connected with friends and family without the hassle of buying a local sim card, or the worry of roaming charges.

In addition to making calls, users get unlimited 4G mobile data to surf the internet, download favourite apps and stay connected on social media.

The mobile travel guide includes details of the services available at the President Hotel as well as location-specific content such as nearby tourist attractions, places of interest, and brand promotions offered in the area.

More than a smartphone, the Handy technology also eases communication between the hotel and in-house guests.

Guests can speed dial the hotel’s concierge or guest services, where the team can assist with travel recommendations, directions, and more.
