The brand new ZIP hotel officially opened in Cardiff earlier this month with the new hotel concept offering compact pod rooms from just £19 a night. 

Featuring rooms a mere 8.5sqm, complete with two single beds that can be pushed into a double, an ensuite shower and a 24-inch TV, ZIP by Premier Inn aims has stripped the guest experience back to basics in order to provide a simple yet brilliant stay. 

Guests can expect to enjoy a sizeable communal area offering breakfast from £3.95pp, which can then be be transformed into a workspace and bar leaving them free to unwind.

Gavin Henson, Welsh rugby player, who attended the launch of the new brand,  said: “It was great fun to launch the world’s first Zip by Premier Inn here in Cardiff. I’m sure that the rugby fans who are flocking to the city to watch the big match later in March will love the fact that they have somewhere very cool to stay without breaking the bank.
