Moreover, GOHO will train the staff to provide the customers with top-notch service: communication, complaint management and operational excellence. GOHO aims to digitize the hotels through GOHO’s customized digital portal by streamlining the entire hoteling process. The customers will be able to book their rooms, check in, make payments, correspond, order room service, and more.”

The company said that it operates 500+ rooms across Pakistan with areas including Karachi, Lahore, Sukkur, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Hyderabad, Hunza, Sost, Gilgit, Aliabad, Attabad Lake, and more.
