We've all been there. One minute we're all snuggled in up in our blankets after a nice morning at the pool and the next, we're frantically trying to shower, pack our bags and make our 12pm hotel check out time... 

Luckily, there's now an app that allows guests to book their hotel room by the hour. Which is not only great for those who'd like to stay a few more hours but for those who have a short layover and don't want to book out a room for the night.

ByHours currently has over 60 Dubai hotels signed up. Among them include the St. George Hotel, Hotel Versailles Dubai and the Eureka Hotel in Al Rigga. 

The Spanish hotel reservation platform is also available in a number of Abu Dhabi hotels. These include the Corniche Hotel Abu Dhabi, City Seasons Al Hamra and the Royal Rose Hotel. 

Speaking on the app, the founder of ByHour Christian Rodriguez said: "ByHours.com came about from my own experience as a user. Most hotel chains are willing to adapt to the necessities of their guests in terms of needs, tastes and lifestyle, but they were inflexible with regards to the hours where you can check in and check out; especially when your flight is first thing in the morning."

The app is free to download on iOS and Android devices now.
