This UK hotel is launching budget pod-style rooms

Called Zip by Premier Inn, it will launch in Cardiff early next year and stays will start from £19 per night.

Customers get an 8.5 sqm room, with a single bed which can be converted into a double by sliding across a couch from the other side of the room, or used as twins.

Premier Inn has come up with a way to make going away even worse an idea than ever, revealing newer, smaller, cheaper hotel rooms for 2019, so that even millennials might be able to afford a short city break.

"It's clear through the research that people want the basics done brilliantly, such as a comfy bed and a power shower, but they are happy to compromise on location or some extras if they are paying a fantastic price for their room".

United Kingdom hospitality group Whitbread has unveiled a new "no-frills" hotel concept called ZIP by Premier Inn, which will open in early 2019.

The Zip rooms have been created by Priestmangoode, the design consultancy behind first-class cabins for airlines including Air France, Lufthansa and Swiss.

Knox added: "We should never shrug at the president cheerleading for a violent act targeting a free and independent news media". Gianforte later apologized to Jacobs and pledged a $50,000 donation to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Whitbread's CEO, Alison Brittain, said the intention was to fill a "niche in an under-served market".

Greg Johnson, an analyst at Shore Capital, said Zip should allow Whitbread to open hotels in locations that could not sustain a regular Premier Inn.

"In developing the concept, we have undertaken considerable research, including having had six ZIP rooms on sale to customers for many months".

Hub is described as "design-led", with 11 sq m rooms that cost more than the £57 average for the main chain.

United Kingdom hospitality company Whitbread has added a new budget brand to its hotel portfolio: Zip by Premier Inn.

The Yotel chain also offers compact pod-style rooms in New York, Boston and Singapore city centres, as well as Gatwick, Heathrow, Charles de Gaulle and Schiphol airports at considerably higher prices.
