According to the USA Today,YOtel will be opening soon at London's Gatwick (May) and Heathrow (June) Airports. YOtel, billed as a mix between Japanese capsule hotels and British Airway's first class cabins, provide "cabins" that can be rented for as little as four hours.

Prices:
Standard Cabins from £55/overnight
Premium Cabins from £80/overnight
4hr bookings from £25 - convenience & efficiency

Map of the floor plan is as available on the website.

I dont really get the internal rather than external window thing?

So what is this...just a hotel that has smaller rooms so it can fit in unique places like airport terminals?

I like the four hour idea, as with many other people I'm sure, there are countless times I've had some time waiting for flights/trains and would have paid a bit of money for a bed to use for a few hours. In saying that, £25 is a little steep.

Pretty much. The other thing is that it provides day-time and shorter term rentals, which fits better with those travelling through locations.
