A London cabbie turns his taxi into a hotel-for-one during the Olympic Games. CNN’s Rosie Tomkins checks it out.
Take the scarcity and expense of hotel accommodations in London this mix that with the missing revenue of London Cabbies (due to the restricted Olympic Lanes) and you would get something like a taxi-bed. One driver seen an opportunity while he took a fare from hotel to hotel in search of a room that could not be found. So he parked his cab outside his London home, made up a make-shift bed and opened for business.
Although this arrangement may not be for everyone, it does appeal to those who are looking for a bit of adventure.
Those poled said the bed was actually quite comfortable!
