A few weeks ago, I wrote about the new Qbic hotel in London and their plan to offer 5 rooms per day for just £1.
This promotion is going live today at midday. This is the page you need.
The system is a little odd – whether it is fair or not I can’t decide. There are 425 rooms over 85 days (December 15th to March 15th). Qbic is only allowing 425 people to enter the booking website. Access will be spaced out between noon and 4pm, so basically every 30 seconds one person who clicks the link will be allowed to book.
That person is then allowed to book one room for one night from the remaining list of dates.
It is not clear what happens towards the end of the process. As you get nearer 4pm, there is very little chance of the remaining rooms being available on a date you want. Does that mean that Qbic will not actually be selling 425 rooms for £1? After all, most people will have one or two target days in mind and will simply not book if they don’t find one they want.
