No frills from Premier Inn

Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -

PREMIER INN HAS UN­VEILED A NEW no-frills brand called Zip by Premier Inn, with rooms start­ing from £19 per night. The 8.5 sqm rooms have a sin­gle bed with a sofa, which al­lows them to be con­verted into a dou­ble or used as a twin. Some rooms will have “small win­dows”, while other will have “light­boxes” – these will be al­lo­cated ran­domly on ar­rival so guests will not be able to pre-book to se­cure a win­dow. Fa­cil­i­ties are to in­clude a TV, free wifi, as well as “a bath­room with a power shower, body wash and a towel, plus handy over­head stor­age and hang­ers”. Rooms will be cleaned ev­ery three days, although guests can pay an ex­tra £5 daily charge to in­crease this. There will be an iron­ing room on each floor, a bar, a chill-out area with a TV and ta­ble foot­ball, and break­fast is avail­able for £3.95. The first Zip ho­tel will open in Cardiff in March 2019 “with more com­ing soon”.
