    Yes, Yotels are supposed to be less expensive? Personally, I like staying
    at Microtels when traveling across the USA. The rooms are small, efficient,
    and affordable (< $50 per night).

    Is the yotel supposed to be inexpensive? I've stayed in places in the US that aren't much larger yet much more expensive. Shoot, most B&B rooms are near that size.

    The yotel looks like a great idea. The capsules would probably make me claustrophobic.

    I like this minimalist approach and hope this concept is implemented in the USA soon.

    What do you think of this concept?
    The opening of the first airport yotel at Gatwick in the UK was covered in this July NY Times article and again more recently in an October NY Times article that also detailed the November 2007 opening of a yotel at Heathrow (now operational) and plans for an early 2008 opening of a yotel at Schipol airport (Amsterdam). These travel articles cited concerns over airport security delays (and passengers stranded by actual security-related incidents) as one factor behind the popularity of this concept.

    An earlier April 2007 article, "Rest for the Weary, and Wi-Fi Too, All for Less Money" article focused on the no-frills hotel service aspect options of a number of chains in Europe.

    I slept in a capsule hotel at Ueno (Japan).
    Exactly what I needed . A fresh pyjama (all your clothes and pack are stored in a locker), a bed with a TV, a huge public bathroom with hot bath (41°C), sauna and shower.
