A Spanish start-up

three hours at a time has arrived in the UK.
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.
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.
