How Sleeperz Hotel Cardiff started a budget hotel revolution

Sleeperz Hotel Cardiff set a new trend in UK hotels

It’s a big bold claim to say that your hotel started a revolution among UK budget hotels, but, that’s exactly what we did five years ago today.

We opened the doors to Sleeperz Hotel Cardiff – Britain’s original budget lifestyle hotel – and it’s proved to be one of the most influential, trend setting innovations in the recent history of UK hotels.

Boom in UK Budget Hotels

To say that there’s been a boom in budget hotels since Sleeperz Hotel Cardiff opened is an understatement.

The branded budget hotel sector has exploded and is now the fastest growing in the UK hotel industry.

Here’s some facts from some extremely clever accountants to back this up:

According to global accountancy firm PriceWaterhouseCooper (PWC), another 200 hotels and 20,000 rooms will open in the UK in 2013 to 2014 – and more than half of these will be in the budget hotel sector – and the majority will be branded.

In today’s hotel market, limited service offerings and technology friendly budget boutique hotels are giving consumers everything they need for far less than they’d pay in a traditional full service mid-market four star hotel.

How did we do it?

We’ve created a fun and funky infographic to show how we started the budget lifestyle revolution – and saw the future well before some of the biggest hotel brands in the country.

We hope you enjoy it – and some lovely pictures of our team at Sleeperz Cardiff enjoying their 5th birthday celebrations!

    Fall of the train into Sleeperz power shower then straight down the road to Spillers buy vinyl, go to Westgate Street watch the boys play. drink rare whisky and listen to a local star at the Full Moon, back home to Sleeperz for one last sip of Jura. That’s a lot of whisky, that’s lot of good times, that’s Cardiff, that’s Sleeperz. Thank you all at Sleepers and thank you to the beautiful Claire. Vincent x.
