Central London may be getting the next possible Yotel location, but this won’t be another fancy high rise.

Simon Woodruffe's Yotel chain, famous for its capsule-style rooms that are offered at hourly rates, hopes to make this particular project unique, as it will be underground.

Earlier this year, we wrote about The Kingsway Tunnels, a labyrinth of underground shafts that were put up for sale. The self-contained Kingsway Tunnels have a rich history as a reserve war room, an air raid shelter and a phone exchange during the Cold War.

The initial Yotel plan for The Kingsway Tunnels is for 100-150 capsules. Stats for Bomb Shelter Hotels Trending: Older & Warm
