New Premier Inn chain shrinks rooms in half

Whitbread. Would you stay in a pod less than half the size of a normal Premier Inn room? For prices as low as £19, the Whitbread chain is betting the answer is yes. The first Zip by Premier Inn hotel opens in the Roath area of Cardiff early next year and will have 138 rooms sized 8.5 sq m including a bathroom. The FTSE 100 firm has tested its new hotel format with six Zip rooms on sale for several months at an unspecified Premier Inn hotel. Whitbread is still planning to open more Premier Inn hotels as well as new Hub and Zip locations. 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.
