Small Rooms, Big Idea
Five years ago, businessman Simon Woodroffe had a good idea. He was in bed in first class on
an international flight when he decided to open a hotel. The bed in the aeroplane gave him an
idea. He could open a hotel with rooms like the sleeping area in an aeroplane.
Now travellers in some of Britain’s airports sleep in these small, low-cost rooms. The rooms are
very small, only seven square metres, but they are very convenient. They are in the airport, so
travellers who want only a night’s sleep and a shower can save money and travelling time.
Woodroffe calls his hotel “Yotel”.
Each room has a TV, a desk and a shower and costs £50. You can pay £70 for a bigger room
that has a couch. Press a button, and the couch changes to a bed.
The small rooms are very popular with travellers. Woodroffe thinks he will open more Yotels in
city centres.
