Stelios Haji-Ioannou, the man behind Easyjet, develops a new hotel concept: Easyhotel. Mid May 2005 the first will be opened in South Kensington, Londen (UK).
As with Easyjet the earlier the reservation the smaller the rate (from approx UK pnd 7,25 to 87/room).
The designers of the Airbus have developped cabins that you can push and shove into a building.
Push 20 cabins in a warehouse and you have a Yotel.
Hoteliers can order the cabins at Yotel.
