London hackney carriage driver, David Weekes, has doubled up his fully operative taxi as a single hotel room for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Those sleeping in the taxi will pay £50 per night, which is a considerable saving in comparison to staying in a conventional hotel. The taxi is more welcoming than you may expect; it has been furnished with a 'memory foam' mattress, pillow, Olympic design duvet and bedspread, a bedside lamp, curtains and even a signature London Paddington teddy bear. The only hitch is reaching a toilet, although Mr. Weekes has consented to let guests use amenities in his family home in north London if they choose to park the taxi nearby.
Tourists using the taxi-room must vacate each morning so that the cab driver can work as usual. Despite this, Mr. Weekes has said he is eager about the coming weeks and that it "was really easy for me to do."
The convenience of having a mobile hotel room is that guests may choose whether to park outside Mr. Weekes' personal home or another legally-permissible spot in the capital.
