A Spanish start-up that helps business travellers to book European hotel spaces for as little as three hours at a time has arrived in the UK.


ByHours.com promises to help travellers maximise their time in foreign cities by offering a short-term booking service for hotels, either in three, six or 12-hour slots.


Guillermo Gaspart, founder and chairman of ByHours.com, said: "Business travel normally involves a significant proportion of ‘dead time', whether that’s arriving early after factoring-in extra travel time or waiting between meetings and events. Our booking platform allows travellers to make use of this time in a productive way. Business travellers can use a room to take a break from a daylong conference or as a 5-star office space with incredible views, taking advantage of these well-located and glamorous hotels spontaneously as they spend time in Europe’s cities. With 150,000 regular hotel customers since our launch it is clear that time-poor consumers and business people are looking for clever ways to make the most of their time."


Hotels taking part in the booking site include W in Barcelona while the range of facilities being offered vary from hotel rooms, business suites and pool and spa facilities.


The website says most hotels listed are four or five star and located in key city hubs.
